Recent polling has shown that “38% believe he [Biden] has dementia,” as previously reported by 100% FED Up. With all his might, the 77-year-old nearly survived his first press conference in over three months without a single error…but not quite!
At the very end of the question-and-answer session, Biden was 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,” as reported by The Hill.
“Compare my cognitive capability to the cognitive capability of the man I’m running against.” Nice try Joe. Biden’s response prompted further questions than it answered.
Such as…where was he tested? Why is he being “constantly tested”? Are his doctors worried about his state? Most importantly, when will he release the results of the tests?
Why isn’t the mainstream media calling for Joe Biden to release the results of his cognitive test? https://t.co/5q1rBww0yf

After all, it is not just Trump supporters who have questioned Joe Biden’s ability. His democratic competitors during the primary battle raised concerns, as have other Democrats and pundits on the Left.
It was Democratic contender Julian Castro who, during a heated and memorable debate moment, asked Biden whether he had already forgotten what he said two minutes earlier about health care. As one columnist wrote at the time about Castro’s insinuation that Biden’s memory was failing, “The elephant in the room has been addressed.”
Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), also a rival, backed Castro up, saying “a lot of people” are concerned about Biden’s “fumbling.” That was the debate in which Biden suggested parents should “have the record player on at night…”
According to The Hill, “In the poll in which nearly 4 in 10 likely voters thought Biden was experiencing some cognitive impairment, some 20 percent of Democratic likely voters and 30 percent of unaffiliated likely voters agreed with that assessment. Also, 61 percent of those polled think Biden needs to address the dementia issue publicly.”
So, not just Fox News commentators and not just Trump supporters.
