Trump Says He’s ‘Cognitively There’ in Bizarre Interview

President Donald Trump has once again claimed that his mind is in working order following a cognitive test. Speaking to Fox News’ Tucker Carlson on Wednesday, the President engaged in a bizarre commentary on the test he’d taken.

“Person. Woman. Man. Camera. TV,” Trump said, describing the test.

“The last questions are much more difficult,” he said. “Like a memory question. It’s like, you’ll go: Person. Woman. Man. Camera. TV.”

“So they say, ‘Could you repeat that?’ So I said, ‘Yeah. It’s: Person. Woman. Man. Camera. TV.'”

“Then, ten minutes, 15, 20 minutes later they say, ‘Remember that first question… Give us that again,” he said.

“And you go: ‘Person. Woman. Man. Camera. TV,” Trump explained. “And they say ‘that’s amazing. How did you do that?”

“I do it because I have, like, a good memory,” he said. “Because I’m cognitively there.”

In the same interview, Trump again called into question the mental fitness of former Vice President Joe Biden.

“You need physical stamina,” he said. “You need mental stamina… we have to be sharp… President Xi is sharp. President Putin is sharp. Erdogan is sharp.”
