Trump has baited the cognitive test trap

Democrats think Trump is stupid because he claims to have found the cognitive test hard. They don’t even see the trap into which they’ve willingly walked.

Trump has a larger than life personality (I don’t think anyone can dispute that), and his own way of getting things done. Some of the things he does seem foolish initially until one realizes how cleverly he’s set a trap.

One of the traps he set for the Democrats concerns the cognitive test that Trump willingly took. During his interview with Chris Wallace, Trump insisted that the cognitive test was hard (and keep in mind that he passed it). Wallace immediately made the case thath the cognitive test is, in fact, incredibly easy.

Wallace: In the Fox poll, they asked people, who is more competent? Who’s got—whose mind is sounder? Biden beats you in that.

Trump: Well, I’ll tell you what, let’s take a test. Let’s take a test right now. Let’s go down, Joe and I will take a test. Let him take the same test that I took.

Wallace: Incidentally, I took the test too when I heard that you passed it.

Trump: Yeah, how did you do?

Wallace: It’s not – well it’s not the hardest test. They have a picture and it says “what’s that” and it’s an elephant.

Trump: No, no, no… You see, that’s all misrepresentation.

Wallace: Well, that’s what it was on the web.

Trump: It’s all misrepresentation. Because, yes, the first few questions are easy, but I’ll bet you couldn’t even answer the last five questions. I’ll bet you couldn’t, they get very hard, the last five questions.

Wallace: Well, one of them was count back from 100 by seven.

Trump: Let me tell you…

Wallace: Ninety-three.

Trump: …you couldn’t answer—you couldn’t answer many of the questions.

Wallace: OK, what’s the question?

Trump: I’ll get you the test, I’d like to give it. I’ll guarantee you that Joe Biden could not answer those questions.

Wallace: OK.

Trump: And I answered all 35 questions correctly.

Just as Wallace pushed back that the test is easy, so did the Twitterati:

Silly wabbits. Don’t they know the trick is on them? Preet Bharara walked right into the trap:

“Instead of a debate, a cognitive test.” That’s it! That’s what Trump wanted. It’s not that he doesn’t want to debate Biden (although he risks looking like a bully in the face of Biden’s manifest mental decline). It’s that he wants to corner Biden into taking the cognitive test. This is a variation on his pushing Elizabeth “Pocahantas” Warren to take her disastrous DNA test.

Here’s the thing: Now that leftists have aggressively and repeatedly made the case that the cognitive test is the lowest bar possible and that any moron can pass it, how will they justify the Biden’s inevitable refuses to take one? After all, if it’s that easy, why won’t Biden take it? This should be part of every single anti-Biden commercial:

“Democrats say that the cognitive test is dead easy. So why won’t Joe Biden take one [ in the presence of neutral witnesses or before a video camera]?

IS JOE BIDEN TOO CONFUSED TO TAKE AN EASY COGNITIVE TEST.”
