‘ARE YOU A JUNKIE?’ Joe Biden Snaps On Black Reporter For Asking About His Cognitive Ability (VIDEO)

This was just painful.

Joe Biden is the king of gaffes, but this one really took the cake. A black journalist asked Joe Biden if he has taken a cognitive test and he responded by asking if the journalist has been tested for cocaine and if he’s a junkie.

The New York Post reports:

Biden snaps at reporter questioning his cognitive abilities: ‘Are you a junkie?’

An irritated Joe Biden snapped at a reporter when pressed Wednesday on whether he had taken a cognitive test — defensively asking the interviewer if he was a junkie and tested for cocaine use.

The 77-year-old Democratic presidential nominee also confirmed he has never taken a cognitive test, countering remarks he made in June in which he said he was “constantly tested” for mental decline.

The heated exchange happened during an interview with CBS correspondent Errol Barnett, who asked Biden to clarify if he had taken a test to measure his mental acuity.

“No, I haven’t taken a test. Why the hell would I take a test?” Biden asked.

“Come on, man. That’s like saying to you, before you got on this program, if you had to take a test where you’re taking cocaine or not. What do you think, huh? Are you a junkie?”

Watch the video:

In the same interview, Biden gave a nearly incoherent answer about how he would deal with China.

This is precisely why a growing number of people in media are trying to get Biden to skip the debates with Trump.

He is not well.
