Biden visibly irritated when asked if he's taken cognitive test, compares to drug test
Today's: "Oh, that Joe. God love him"
[Wash Examiner] Joe Biden grew visibly irritated when asked whether he would take a cognitive test such as President Trump did.

"No, I haven't taken a test. Why the hell would I take a test?" Biden said in a Tuesday interview. "C'mon, man."

Biden was asked a similar question last week, during which the former vice president and Democratic presidential nominee dodged the question by saying that he is constantly tested when he is on the campaign trail
In his basement and with softball questions
This time, Biden compared the aim of question from the interviewer, who is black, to being asked to take a drug test.

"That's like saying you, before you got in this program, 'Will you take a test, were you taking cocaine or not?' What do you think, huh? Are you a junkie?'"

The full Tuesday interview will be aired Thursday at the combined convention of the National Association of Black Journalists and National Association of Hispanic Journalists.

Trump and his campaign is targeting Biden's cognitive ability as a campaign tactic, often pointing out when he stumbles over words and misspeaks.

#11  Good ol' Glass Joe.

Would chew on the whiffle balls if he could put his teeth in correct.

#10  Not too long ago when asked a similar question he responded with something like "Yeah, all the time!"

Maybe if he forgets then it means everyone else does, too.

I think they're playing whiffle ball with him these days.

#7  He said "Lying dog-faced pony soldier." His handlers said "You can't say that about people on the team, Joe."

#6  Joey's snapped at people before the virus nonsense. Didn't he call someone fat or something? There might have been other instances, but I cannot recall them. He's that "get off my lawn" type of neighbor.

#5  Dated a social services gal who told me this: Dementia people are placid or combative. Watch out for the latter.

#4  Also paranoia and memory loss (obviously). And I believe we've seen both of those in how he handles his few interviews. Memory loss for over a year now.

#3  Two signs of old age dementia are crankiness and lashing out. Biden is exhibiting both of them bigly.

#2  Of all the drugs he could mention, cocaine comes up...

#1  If Joe doesn't know why he should be tested, he definitely needs to be tested.
