‘Person. Woman. Man. Camera. TV.’
President Trump, in a Fox News interview on Wednesday, discussed the results of a recent cognitive assessment. The president gave the interviewer, Dr. Marc K. Siegel, an example of a question that tests patients’ memory. “It’s, like, you’ll go: Person. Woman. Man. Camera. TV. So they say, ‘Could you repeat that?’ So it’s: Person. Woman. Man. Camera. TV.’”
“It was impressive until they asked Trump what he ate for lunch that day and he said, ‘Person. Woman. Man. Camera. TV,’” Jimmy Fallon joked on “The Tonight Show” Thursday.
“Today is a historic day for D.C. football fans because, after getting rid of the team’s previous name, Washington’s N.F.L. team will go by the name ‘The Washington Football Team’ until a new name can be chosen. So the Washington football team is now The Washington Football Team.” — STEPHEN COLBERT
“That’s what they came up with? That name sounds like someone trying to talk about sports who knows nothing about sports. It’s like, ‘I love the Washington Football Team.’” — JIMMY FALLON
“I’m sorry, that is the laziest team name I have ever heard. I mean, they pre-named a professional football franchise the same way you save phone numbers of people you just met.” — TREVOR NOAH
“The Washington Football Team? Sounds like they can only afford the store brand version of team names. It’s like when my mom couldn’t buy us Cheerios so she brought Oat Circles.” — TREVOR NOAH
“The only silver lining is it’s going to be helpful to people who don’t follow the N.F.L. If someone asks you who you’re rooting for, you will be, like, ‘The football team.’ Sounds like you know what you’re talking about.” — TREVOR NOAH
