Trump Again Boasts About His Dementia Test Results: ‘Person. Woman. Man. Camera. TV.’
President Donald Trump again boasted about his cognitive test results in an interview on Wednesday, bragging about his cognitive superiority over Joe Biden.
“Person. Woman. Man. Camera. TV,” Trump said in an interview with Dr. Marc Siegel, recalling one of the questions in the cognitive test in an interview with Fox News. He said he was asked to memorize and repeat these words at the beginning and end of the test. “If you get it in order, you get extra points,” he said.
“And then 10 minutes, 15, 20 minutes later, they say, remember the first question, not the first, but the 10th question? Give us that again. Can you do that again? And you go, ‘Person. Woman. Man. Camera. TV,” Trump said.
Trump brought up the test after a question about his opponent in the presidential race, Joe Biden. Trump has repeatedly brought up the cognitive test in recent weeks to highlight his mental superiority over Biden while mocking the fitness of his competitor.
“Now Joe should take that test because something’s going on,” Trump said. “And, I say this with respect. I mean – going to probably happen to all of us, right? You know? It’s going to happen.”
In one recent interview, Trump called Biden “mentally shot” and said he was “unfit” to be a president.
The test that the president repeatedly boasted about is the Montreal Cognitive Assessment is a test meant to detect dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.
Trump has also talked about his test results in an interview with Fox News’ Chris Wallace last week. He challenged Biden and Wallace to take the same test.
“[Biden] should take the same exact test, a very standard test. I took it at Walter Reed Medical Center in front of doctors. And they were very surprised. They said, that’s an unbelievable thing. Rarely does anybody do what you just did. But he should take that same test,” Trump said.
Wallace then said he took the test and referred to it ads “not the hardest test.” One of the question, Wallace said, asked to identify an elephant. Trump called it a “misrepresentation.”
“Because, yes, the first few questions are easy, but I’ll bet you couldn’t even answer the last five questions. I’ll bet you couldn’t, they get very hard, the last five questions,” Trump said.
“Well, one of them was count back from 100 by seven,” Wallace said.
