Sarah Cooper’s “How to cognitive” lip-synch shines a hilarious light on Trump’s own words
Although he almost certainly wasn’t supposed to have blurted it out, Donald Trump recently called Sean Hannity, live on air, and bragged about having aced a cognitive test.
This is what he said.
Trump bizarrely bragged to Hannity that he “aced” a cognitive test he took at Walter Reed.
Doctors “were very surprised. They said, 'That's an unbelievable thing. Rarely does anybody do what you just did.'"

It raised some questions.
The White House has not disclosed any recent trips to Walter Reed.
When and why was Trump secreted to a medical center and administered a cognitive evaluation? https://t.co/UUEmMtj5gf

At least we know he will have got “Do you know who the President is?” correct. Bit of a head start for him there.
The wonderful Sarah Cooper took Trump’s words and made them into brilliantly dark comedy, as always.

We’re going to start using this tip from the legendary Mark Hamill.
Words can't express how much I love this woman.
I'm at the point where I close my eyes when the real #POTUS is on TV speaking & just picture @sarahcpr. It's really helped control my gag-reflex. https://t.co/EorXnCqAhl
