When Donald Trump asked President Joe Biden to take a cognitive test, he committed a major error. Trump asked Biden to take a cognitive test that resembled the one he did in 2018. Trump mispronounced the name of the physician who conducted his exam, referring to him as "Ronny Johnson" rather than Ronny Jackson.

Trump, known for criticizing Biden's mental fitness, said, “He doesn’t even know what the word ‘inflation’ means. I think he should take a cognitive test like I did.” Moments later, he incorrectly referred to his former White House physician and Texas Congressman as "Ronny Johnson." This slip-up quickly caught the attention of critics and Biden's campaign team, who posted the clip online to mock Trump’s mistake.

Trump’s confusion happened during a speech where he praised Jackson, claiming the doctor called him "the healthiest president in history." However, his error overshadowed his attempt to highlight Biden’s cognitive abilities, sparking widespread ridicule on social media. Users were quick to point out the irony of Trump forgetting Jackson's name while questioning Biden's mental acuity.

One social media user wrote, "Wow, while challenging Biden to a cognitive test and bragging that he faced a dementia test, Trump forgets Ronny Jackson's name: Ronny Johnson." Others questioned Trump's own mental state and referred to the event as "self-centered."

Trump, who turned 78 on Friday, has been focusing on Biden’s age and fitness for office as a major part of his campaign. However, this isn’t the first time Trump has made similar errors. Earlier this year, he confused Nikki Haley with Nancy Pelosi and mistakenly referred to Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán as the leader of Turkey.

Biden's campaign has often faced criticism over the president's verbal blunders, and Trump's mistake provided an opportunity for Biden's team to flip the script. In response, Biden’s campaign posted a video clip of Trump’s error, emphasizing the former president’s hypocrisy.

The cognitive test Trump frequently refers to is the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA), designed to detect early signs of memory loss and cognitive decline. Jackson, who administered the test, reported that Trump scored perfectly. The test includes tasks such as remembering a list of words, repeating numbers backward, and drawing a clock. Despite its basic nature, Trump has repeatedly boasted about his perfect score, treating it as evidence of his cognitive prowess.

Trump's statements followed a number of occasions in which Biden's actions sparked conversations about his mental health in public. Biden's incoherent appearance and spontaneous conversation with a security guard during the G7 summit in Apulia, Italy, fueled additional controversy.

While Trump continues to use these moments to question Biden’s fitness for office, his own gaffes, like the one in Detroit, have become ammunition for critics. This latest slip-up not only undercuts his argument against Biden but also highlights the scrutiny both candidates face regarding their cognitive health as the election approaches.
