Another day, another moment when Joe Biden reveals his slipping mental faculties.
It’s really getting ridiculous now. We’ve lost count of the many times Biden has lost his memory, slurred his speech, appeared lethargic and weak, or struggled to read one word off a teleprompter. Worse than that are the many times he’s shown outright hostility to people—a clear sign of various mental illnesses.
Recently, Donald Trump called for Biden to take the same cognitive he took—and passed. Trump seemed to believe Biden would not have the same kind of success. Now, after receiving backlash and ridicule over what he’s said in the past, Obama’s White House doctor is doubling down.
Republican Texas Rep. Ronny Jackson, who is also a former White House physician, called for President Joe Biden to undergo a cognitive test Saturday…
Jackson, who gave the test to Trump, said it is not an IQ test, but a test for age-related problems such as dementia or cognitive decline…
“I think he’s demonstrating every single day that there is something going on… You don’t need to be a physician to look at this behavior and see there’s something concerning happening.” [Source: Daily Caller]
Jackson joined a chorus of other Americans, who noticed the many times Biden showed evidence of decline. He mentioned how often Biden seems “confused” while appearing before the public. You don’t have to look long to find footage of Biden squint and looking around like he’s lost in the mall. In fact, in every speech, presser, and appearance these days, Joe looks like he’s about to fall asleep.
This is supposed to be the Leader of the Free world and, honestly, he looks like he belongs in a rest home.
Calls for him to take a cognitive test have been made since before the election. Cleary he, nor his staff, have any intentions of conducting one. Even if public pressure forced the Biden White House to do so, how do we know it’ll be a legitimate one?
It would be very easy for the White House to “fudge” the exam. Or, at the very least, refuse to release the full results. Only a push from the public would get the real results published.
Democrats have quite a lot to lose if they take that route. If Biden is declared mentally unfit, all their hopes and dreams are dash. That means they’ve been backing a man who has been suffering decline for years. How is that going to make them look? They can say goodbye to 2022 and 2024. Biden could be forced to step down, leaving Kamala Harris in charge.
That would really be bad for the left, since Harris is an even worse public figure than Joe.
It goes without saying that Democrats have no intention of making Joe take the cognitive exam. They will deny and ignore all signs that his mind is gone. Perhaps only more, ongoing pressure from the public will force their hand.
But are we willing to face what we might learn?
