Trump challenges Biden to take cognitive test, as mainstream media ignores the obvious

American Wire

President Donald Trump’s critics have long questioned his intelligence, attentiveness and sanity. 

But in doing so they’ve openly ignored obvious signs of cognitive decline in the man they want to oust Trump, Democrat Joe Biden.

Perhaps no longer. Trump may force his critics to confront the issue, now generally accepted by 38 percent of Americans, according to a recent poll, of whether the former vice president is exhibiting signs of dementia.

The president wants to exploit an opening provided by Biden himself. Last week, at his first press conference in three months, Biden maintained that his cognitive ability was “constantly tested.”

“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,” Biden told reporters.

Yet in recent days, his response has triggered more questions than it answered. That’s because the campaign so far has declined to offer details about the tests or the results, if they in fact occurred, and because most of the mainstream media has refused to inquire. 

Or in the case of The Washington Post, the trick is to redirect.

Post columnist Greg Sargent pointed out that Fox News, whose reporter asked the question about Biden’s mental agility, is “heavily” promoting “the ‘dementia’ line.” He then noted that Biden leads Trump in opinion polls in questions about whether he is more “even-tempered,” a “good role model,” “cares about the needs of ordinary people,” and “honest.” 

Yet Sargent steadfastly avoided the issue at hand: Is Biden’s mental capability waning?

Trump then threw down the gauntlet.

After Biden’s comment, the president challenged Biden to take the same cognitive test he once underwent.

In January 2018, as The New York Times noted, Trump’s doctor administered the Montreal Cognitive Assessment, which was designed to test Trump’s memory and thinking. Trump’s physician, Dr. Ronny Jackson, a Navy rear admiral, announced that he “found no reason whatsoever to think the president has any issues whatsoever with his thought processes.”

“He cannot pass the test I ‘aced’. He should give it a try!!!” Trump taunted in a recent tweet about Biden.

Biden’s repeated gaffes are not just fodder for social media jabs. Many Americans believe they are evidence of an aged brain in decline, and exhibiting decreasing horsepower. 

Yet other than the Post’s Sargent, who sought to deflect the criticism by making the issue about Fox News, it’s been left to the conservative media to raise questions about the cognitive acuity of “Sleepy Joe.”

In January 2018, liberal New York Times columnist Gail Collins snarked about Trump’s cognitive test results. Yet she added, “the test can be useful if there is, for some reason, a concern that the subject is suffering from … um, dementia.”

The fact that the Times — or CNN or MSNBC, to cite two other examples — didn’t even acknowledge that Biden was asked the question by Fox’s reporter, much less suggest he should take the test only to clear up questions, shows their honesty is as much in doubt as Biden’s mental faculties.

    It is my concern that the Communist/Democrats intend to have a Communist vice president, e.g. Nadler, Pelosi, Adam Schitt, etc. Run, and if elected have Joe Biden undergo any neuropsychologic testing to declare him unfit so that the Communist vice president can make this a Stalinist nation with all the killings of conservatives and take over a nation of cowards.

    I do not see the problem, in taking the test after he has Claimed on National TV that he is being Constatly Tested, Unless he is Trying to Defraud the Voters and the Electoral Representives , and that His Staff And The Democrats Party Are Acting As Co Consperter To hide the Legal Evidence that he is Legally Incopatint and would be Legally Ruled So By any group of Judges who would question him.

    Bidden should be tested. No one should be running for Office of the President without taking this test. And is is very clear Biden needs the test to confirm his status. We do not need a person running for President that has this problem.

    People get fired from their “9-5 jobs” with this issue. Why would we let a candidate for President slide by with out taking the test.
    Biden must be tested. And if dementia is confirmed he should not run for president. This is a no brainer. Who wants a candidate that has dementia or worse as the President of the United States.

    He would truly be a puppet for the Democrates!!!!! He needs to be stopped now and removed from the election!!!! I am sure behind the scenes the Democrats already have the person ready to step in and run for President.

    That’s a bit too cruel for me. Anyone suffering with dementia is to be pitied, not lambasted and made to look so foolish. I am a staunch Trump supporter but I also have compassion for anyone who is dealing with a mental breakdown. I’m sure his family is going through some times dealing with this and cannot understand how they are permitting this facade to continue.
    I also feel that President Trump senses the embarrassment that’s about to take place in any debate and will handle it with dignity and compassion as well. Joe Biden’s condition is obvious and to parade him in front of a TV audience will be painful to watch.
