Why would Joe Biden need to take a cognitive test?? C'MON MAN!
Well, that's what he has to say about it anyway.
From our friends at Fox News:
Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden clarified in a feisty interview moment that he’s never taken a cognitive test amid repeated attacks by President Trump on the 77-year-old former vice president’s mental stamina.
"No, I haven't taken a test. Why the hell would I take a test?" Biden answered, in an interview scheduled to air Thursday at the convention of the National Association of Black Journalists and National Association of Hispanic Journalists. Biden was asked if he had taken a test for cognitive decline.
"Come on, man. That's like saying you, before you got on this program, you take a test where you're taking cocaine or not. What do you think? Huh? Are you a junkie?" the former vice president shot back, turning the question back around on CBS News reporter Errol Barnett, who is Black. The former vice president chuckled as he finished his response."
And from The Hill:
The reporter followed up by stating that President Trump has bragged about his own cognitive abilities and questioned Biden’s mental fitness.
“Well, if he can't figure out the difference between an elephant and a lion, I don't know what the hell he's talking about,” Biden said.
“Did you watch that - look, come on, man. I know you're trying to goad me, but I mean ... I'm so forward-looking to have an opportunity to sit with the president or stand with the president and the debates.”
Biden, 77, would be the oldest president ever sworn in for a first term in office if he is elected in November. Trump, who was 70 years old when he was sworn in, is currently the oldest first-term president ever.
Biden said he's been "constantly" tested when asked the same question at a press conference in June.
“I’ve been tested and I’m constantly tested,” Biden responded. “Look, all you gotta do is watch me, and I can hardly wait to compare my cognitive capability to the cognitive capability of the man I’m running against.”
It is interesting to note that Biden's reponse to the question by a Black reporter, was whether or not he was a junky.
He could barely even spit out "fitness," for godsake!
Most of the time, when someone doesn't want to take a test, it's because they fear they will fail.
