Like any person confident in their cognitive abilities, President Donald Trump launched a rambling monologue during a Fox News interview on Wednesday in which he proudly informed Fox News contributor Marc Seigel that he had aced the “difficult” portion of a cognitive test that required him to repeat “person, woman, man, camera, TV” in that order.

Unfortunately, Trump’s brag-fest failed to leave people in awe of his fearsome display of mental fortitude.

Instead, critics roasted the President over his bizarre obsession with his mental fortitude.

They also mocked Trump’s pride in passing a test that determines whether one is actively suffering from dementia or other illnesses that cause mental decline.

Here are some reactions to the President’s interview:
