Yep, he is trying to brag about passing a test that most people would be expected to ace, for a test that they only give to people when they suspect that something is wrong.

They should try a Voight-Kampff empathy test.

Su Trump characterized the last 5 questions of the cognitive test as "very hard"

This page has a copy of the test, so you can judge for yourself.

"Very hard" lol....

I have taken this test in times of mental distress and "aced" it.....
If you are a functioning adult and get anything below a 30 (perfect score) that should be alarming.... Basically it exists to make sure you don't have major cognitive issues its not a tricky test.....

Thump is playing you. Again.
And you fell for it. Again. It's
what he does, with great
effectiveness.
If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.

Yeah, it is the pull an excuse from the trump is being an idiot grab bag. He was just joking. It's sarcasm. He wasn't being serious. That isn't what he actually meant. He was just jerking people's chains.

As someone with a fair appreciation for sarcasm, I conclude that his brand must be so subtle as to be virtually undetectable. Is there any way that I can get a comprehensive list of the statements that he actually means? There certainly doesnt seem to be very many.

The guy is insane
He does not want to be called a loser
Its as simple as that
I have no doubt he will claim he won regardless of the results. He claims he won the last popular vote. He's nuts
Trump thinks losing is a lot worse then over 140k US deaths
He just cant deal with being tagged with "loser". Its a insult he reserves for his most hated enemies

Oh, someone has probably put something together somewhere. It happens during the "walk-back" phase, where someone else speaks or issues a statement after trump explaining to the rest of us what he really meant to say.
