Breitbart: Joe Biden’s campaign doubled down on the candidate going on offense against a reporter after he asked if Biden has submitted to a cognitive assessment.
Axios reported an unnamed Biden campaign official said in response, “It was a preposterous question deserving of a response that showed the absurdity of it all.”
Earlier in the day, Biden made an appearance with the National Association of Black Journalists, and Errol Barnett asked if the presumptive Democrat nominee has undergone a mental exam.
“No, I haven’t taken a test! Why the hell would I take a test? C’mon, man!” Biden lashed out.
Biden then challenged Barnett, “That’s like saying you, before you got in this program, if you take a test where you’re taking cocaine or not, what do you think? Huh? Are you a junkie?”
Barnett didn’t take Biden’s bait and instead asked Biden to respond to President Trump touting his results from a cognitive assessment.
Biden accused the reporter of trying to “goad” him, before saying, “I’m so forward-looking to have an opportunity to sit with the president — or stand with the president — in debates,” he insisted (emphasis added).
“I am very willing to let the American people judge my physical, mental fil–my physical as well as my mental fil–fitness,” he concluded.
Former White House Physician Dr. Ronny Jackson previously aired concerns about Biden’s apparent mental state.
