Concern for Biden campaign as experts predict Trump could remember eight or nine words by November


Donald Trump could remember many things by election

There was growing concern in the Joe Biden Presidential campaign that Donald Trump could improve on his impressive ability to remember five words and increase that to as many eight or even nine words by the time of the election in November.

“I would say that, provided he works hard and really focuses, it is not hard to imagine Donald Trump, the leader of the free world, being able to remember eight or nine words,” said Simon Williams, Professor of Words at Yale University.

“He would need to stick to short ones – cat, shoe, crime – but yes, remembering nine words is a definite possibility.”

The prospect represents a serious concern for the Biden camp.

“When we learnt Trump could remember five words – ‘person’, ‘woman’, ‘man’, ‘camera’ and ‘TV’ – we were worried. Really worried. This was going to be far tougher fight than we’d envisioned,” explained Biden team representative Eleanor Gay.

“I mean, he always said he was the greatest President ever, but being able to remember five words? Maybe he was. But now, we could be up against someone who can remember eight or even nine words? This is going to be the fight of our lives.”

The only consolation for the Biden team is that while, with extensive training, Trump may be able to remember eight or nine words, it is unlikely there is enough time left for him to learn how to formulate them into any sort of coherent sentence.
