After repeated calls for Joe Biden to actually come out of hiding and speak with reporters… since he is the democrat presumptive nominee and has been carefully protected from actually campaigning… Biden finally emerged from the holding cell, where his family is keeping him from the prying eyes of the public, to answer a carefully crafted series of ‘questions’ from the media.
Of course, they couldn’t leave anything to chance, many people argue. A fact that was demonstrated by Biden’s absently referring to the “list” of people he was supposed to call on… apparently, in a certain order.
The attempt appears to be an effort to make Joe Biden seem like something he’s not… an aging, nearly senile dinosaur of the racist democrat party. Remember, this is the man who fought segregation because it would create a “jungle” and also who recently said “you ain’t black” unless you vote for him.
But, one question about Biden’s “cognitive” ability seemed to either slip through… or was supposed to look like it slipped through.
Answering Doug McKelway of Fox News, who asked if Biden had been tested “for some degree of cognitive decline,” the democrat said he was being “constantly tested.”
Many people have speculated on WHY Biden is being “constantly tested.”
They point to the fact that unless something is wrong, there’s no need for “constant” tests.
ὄ Biden admitted today he’s “been tested” and is “constantly tested.”

“I’ve been tested and I’m constantly tested,” Biden responded.
“All you’ve got to 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,” he said.
In December 2019, Biden released his medical exam, and as one analyst observed, one test was missing: a cognitive functioning test.
Stuart Jay Olshansky, a professor of public health at the University of Illinois at Chicago, reviewed Biden’s results and told the Washington Post, “The only test that hasn’t been done is the cognitive functioning test.”
He added, “But the fact that he’s on the campaign trail and meeting a rigorous travel and meeting schedule probably would suffice as a replacement for the formal test for cognitive functioning.”
Olshansky told the paper cognitive tests are not typically required “unless problems are detected.”
In another part of the “interview,” Biden attacked President Trump’s superior intellect and awareness.
Former Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday claimed President Donald Trump appears not to be “cognitively aware of what’s going on,” an apparent response to his political opponent attacking his own mental agility.
“This president talks about cognitive capability, Biden, known for his repeated verbal flubs, began a speech on the coronavirus pandemic in his home city of Wilmington, Delaware. “He doesn’t seem to be cognitively aware of what’s going on.”
“He either reads or gets briefed on important issues, and he forgets it, or he doesn’t think it’s necessary that he need to know it,” the presumptive Democrat nominee added, before criticizing President Trump over unsubstantiated reports that Russia offered bounties to Taliban-linked militants to kill U.S. military personnel. In a Tuesday statement, the Department of Defense said it had no corroborating evidence that Russian offered bounties to Taliban fights to kill U.S. troops in Afghanistan.
“The Department of Defense continues to evaluate intelligence that Russian GRU operatives were engaged in malign activity against United States and coalition forces in Afghanistan. To date, DOD has no corroborating evidence to validate the recent allegations found in open-source reports,” Pentagon Spokesman Jonathan Hoffman said.
Asked by a reporter about speculation regarding his own mental decline, Biden replied: “I can hardly wait to compare my cognitive capability to the cognitive capability of the man I am running against.”
Biden’s apparent accusation regarding President Trump’s cognitive condition comes as voters continue to worry about the former vice president’s own mental state.
As Breitbart News reported:
One-fifth of Democrat voters believe that Joe Biden (D), the Democrat Party’s presumptive nominee, is suffering from “some form” of dementia, and a majority of likely voters say it is important for him to address the issue publicly, a Rasmussen Reports poll released Monday revealed.
The survey found that 38 percent of voters, overall, believe he has dementia, while 20 percent within his own party say the same. According to Rasmussen, “that compares to 66% of Republicans and 30% of voters not affiliated with either major party.”
President Trump has repeatedly remarked about Biden’s verbal flubs, saying the former vice president is “not mentally sharp enough” to be in the White House.
“Biden doesn’t know, I mean, he doesn’t know he’s alive,” the president said recently. “I’m against somebody. Think of it. I’m against somebody that can’t answer simple questions. I’ve never seen anything like it, but here’s what I am against. I’m against a very powerful party, the Democrats, and they can take this glass of water and say that’s your candidate.
And, in another part of the scripted show, Bide refused to release the names of the radical Supreme Court nominees he would appoint if given the chance.
Joe Biden told reporters on Tuesday that he would not release his list of potential Supreme Court nominees.
The presumptive Democrat nominee, somehow, blamed President Trump for his lack of transparency.
“One thing I hesitate to do is follow anything the President does at all because he usually does it all wrong,” Biden said after the report noted Trump promised to provide new details about his potential picks.
“I have— we are putting together a list of a group of African-American women who are qualified and have the experience to be on the Court. I am not going to release that until we go further down the line of vetting them, as well,” he said, not offering a deadline for when that would happen.
“I will be releasing a new list of Conservative Supreme Court Justice nominees, which may include some, or many of those already on the list, by September 1, 2020,” Trump wrote on Twitter:
I will be releasing a new list of Conservative Supreme Court Justice nominees, which may include some, or many of those already on the list, by September 1, 2020. If given the opportunity, I will only choose from this list, as in the past, a Conservative Supreme Court Justice…

“If given the opportunity, I will only choose from this list, as in the past, a Conservative Supreme Court Justice,” he wrote in another tweet. “Based on decisions being rendered now, this list is more important than ever before (Second Amendment, Right to Life, Religous Liberty, etc.) – VOTE 2020!”
