People are growing increasingly concerned about Joe Biden’s mental state.
There is reasonable cause for concern. Every time Biden speaks, his words degenerate into a bizarre word salad.
Now that he has confirmed that he has been tested for mental acuity, people are starting to say he should share the results with the American people.
Calls Mount for Biden to Release Results of Cognitive Test
Joe Biden, who turns 78 in November, appears to be showing signs that he’s in mental decline. The voters have noticed as well. Over half of likely voters believe the candidate is probably in the early stages of dementia, according to a recent poll, and some even think he’s in the later stages.
The Biden campaign had to address the candidate’s snowballing number of mental hiccups, confused moments, baffling comments, and overall forgetfulness, so Biden told reporters on Tuesday that he’s been “tested constantly” for cognitive decline. Now everyone has questions.
Liz Peek wrote this op-ed at The Hill:
Joe Biden must release the results of his cognitive tests — voters need to know
Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden very nearly survived his first press conference in three months without a single goof. Almost, but not quite.
At the very end of the question-and-answer session, asked by a reporter if he had been tested for “cognitive decline,” he answered, “I’ve been tested. I’ve been tested constantly.” Biden went on to say he could “hardly wait to compare my cognitive capability to the cognitive capability of the man I’m running against.”
Pretty snappy answer for a fellow thought by 38 percent of likely voters to be suffering a mental decline. Except, of course, that Biden’s response raised more questions than it answered.
Such as…where was he tested? Why, exactly, is he being “constantly tested”? Are his doctors worried about him? Most importantly, when will he release the results of those tests?
These are not unreasonable requests.
Do you recall all the demands Democrats made about John McCain’s health in 2008?
Joe Biden is older now than McCain was then.
