Trump: Biden Should Take Cognitive Test
July 10, 2020 (EIRNS)—Speaking by phone to Hannity on Fox News last night, President Trump was asked if Joe Biden was trying to avoid a debate. “Well, the answer is yes, absolutely,” Trump responded. “Let’s face it, he’s been taken over by the radical left. He has no clue what they are doing and what they’re getting him into.... It’s all crazy, radical-left stuff. And Joe is never going to be able to fight it, even if he disagreed with it, which I actually don’t think he does. I think they—you know, there is an expression, an old expression—it was used badly a time ago in politics—I think they brainwashed him.”
Hannity said Biden had claimed he was taking cognitive tests regularly, but Trump corrected him, saying that Biden meant COVID-19 tests.
“He didn’t mean that, because he hasn’t taken any cognitive test, because he couldn’t pass one. I actually took one when the radical left were saying, ‘Is he all there? Is he all there?’ And I proved I was all there, because I aced it. I aced the test. And he should take the same exact test, a very standard test. I took it at Walter Reed Medical Center in front of doctors. And they were very surprised. They said, that’s an unbelievable thing. Rarely does anybody do what you just did. But he should take that same test.
“But, no, he has been totally taken over, and I think it’s because he doesn’t understand what’s going on. I watched him today. I watched him over the last couple of weeks. And I look forward to debating him, but it looks like he wants to try to get out of the debates.”
