In his attempts to paint Democratic nominee Joe Biden as cognitively unfit to take over the White House, President Donald Trump continues to brag about the results of a cognitive test he claims to have taken.
He went into detail first with Fox News anchor Chris Wallace during an erratic interview, but a more recent Fox News appearance with the network's medical correspondent, Dr. Marc Siegel where Trump addresses the test is going viral.

The President boasted at length, particularly about a part of the test which required him to remember five words:
"It's like, you will go, 'person, woman, man, camera, TV," so they say, 'Could you repeat that?' So I said, 'Yeah. So it's person, woman, man, camera, TV.'...10 minutes, 15 minutes, 20 minutes later, they say 'Remember the first question?'—not the first but the tenth question—'Give us that again, can you do that again?' And you go, 'Person, woman, man, camera, TV.' If you get it in order, you get extra points.
Soon, "Person, woman, man, camera, TV" took the internet by storm.
Anti-Trump Republican from the Lincoln Project, Mike Madrid, soon began urging his followers to recreate the moment in what is now known as the "Cognitive Test Challenge."
