Trump Tears Into Biden, Brags About Acing Cognitive Test and Demands Biden Take One


Former President Donald Trump chided President Joe Biden on Wednesday in Texas over his cognitive health, noting he didn’t believe his White House successor could pass a basic function test.

Trump was visiting the border with Texas GOP Gov. Greg Abbott when he speculated Biden has lost hid marbles, The Texas Tribune reported.

The former president noted that he easily passed a common cognitive test once administered by former White House physician Ronny Jackson. Jackson is now a Republican congressman representing the Lone Star State.

“[Jackson] did a test. Did I ace it? I aced it,” Trump said during a briefing at the state Department of Public Safety’s Weslaco headquarters.

“And I’d like to see Biden ace it. He won’t ace it,” he added as Abbott laughed.

“He will get the first two. There are 35 questions and the first two or three are pretty easy. They are the animals. Is this a lion, a giraffe,” Trump said to a room full of laughter.

“When he gets to around 20, he’s gonna have a little hard time. I think he’s gonna have a hard time with the first few, actually,” the former president joked.

Sadly, Trump is probably correct. Biden’s cognitive health was an issue throughout the 2020 presidential campaign. Since his inauguration, he has done little to dispel a notion that he isn’t playing with a full deck.

Here are a few recent examples of Biden making the situation worse, in case you’d forgotten:

The mere mention of a cognitive test sent Biden into a frenzy last August. After CBS News reporter Errol Barnett asked if he’d be open to taking such a test, Biden flipped out.

“No, I haven’t taken a test. Why the hell would I take a test?” he lashed out. “Come on, man. That’s like saying, ‘You — before you got on this program did you take a test where you’re taking cocaine or not, what do you think? Huh?'”

“Are you a junkie?” Biden asked Barnett.

The subject is one that is obviously sore for the now-president.

Biden has not taken such a test — at least not one that the public is aware of. Perhaps, given recent events and his complete mishandling of the country since January, he should.

Correction: An earlier version of this story said Biden was Trump’s predecessor as president rather than his successor. We regret the error.
