I can probably list 100s of similar stories about the same examiner and other ones during the 7 years I was teaching in south florida.
An excellent reason to report the dude’s actions to the FAA. NOT a reason to hand out type ratings or training passes to everyone as a friggin’ participation trophy.

Would you want to be operated on by a doctor who showed up for anatomy and pathology class but was never able to pass either? IF THERE ARE DEFICIENCIES IN TRAINING PERSONNEL YOU ADDRESS THE DEFICIENCIES IN TRAINING PERSONNEL. YOU DO NOT PASS THE TRAINEES REGARDLESS OF MERIT.
