Donald Trump has just given one of his most bizarre TV interviews of all time – we're calling it now.
In an interview with Fox News on Wednesday, the president took us through a test he did to prove his cognitive skills.
Explaining exactly how his acuity test went down, Trump said:
The first questions are very easy. The last questions are much more difficult. Like a memory question. He’ll go ‘person, woman, man, camera, TV’. So they’ll say ‘Can you repeat that?’
Trump repeated the line. Then about 20 minutes later, they asked him to repeat the words in order again:
If you get it in order, you get extra points. They said ‘Nobody gets it in order, it’s actually not that easy’ but for me it was easy.
Explaining how he excelled in the test, Trump claimed the people administering the test told him he was “amazing” and asked, “How did you do that?”
He coolly responded:
I do it cos I have, like, a good memory. Because I’m cognitively there.
The bizarre TV moment had everyone talking… mainly to ask – what in the world is Trump doing?

The interview comes about after Donald Trump has consistently questioned Joe Biden's cognitive ability and repeatedly refers to him as "Sleepy Joe".
But unfortunately for Trump, Google Trends shows the nickname just isn't catching on...
