In a virtual interview with Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden with CBS, he answered, “Why the hell would I take a test?” when asked by host Errol Barnett to clarify whether he had taken a cognitive test, and what he said next was strange.
“That’s like saying, ‘You—before you got on this program you took a test where you’re taking cocaine or not, what do you think? Huh? Are you a junkie?'” Biden continued after confirming he hadn’t taken the test, in the interview published on Aug. 6.
At the next point in the interview, Barnett asked Biden what he would say about the situation raised by U.S. President Donald Trump when he bragged about his cognitive test.
“Well, if he can’t figure out the difference between an elephant and a lion, I don’t know what the hell he’s talking about,” Biden said with a laugh.
“Look, c’mon man, I know you’re trying to goad me, but I’m so … looking [forward] to have an opportunity to sit or stand with the president on the debates,” he added.
He immediately hesitated and stammered as he uttered some confusing words.
“I, I shouldn’t say it, I’m going to say something I don’t I, I probably shouldn’t say. Anyway I am, uh, I am very willing to let the American public judge my physical mental fil…
my physical as well as my mental fitness, and uh… to uh…, you know to make a judgment about who I am,” he concluded in that segment of the interview.
Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders highlighted the media’s inaction on this Biden interview and believes that the broadcast would have been very different if President Donald Trump had responded in the same way as the Democratic candidate did.
“Can you imagine if @realDonaldTrump did that? The media wouldn’t talk about anything else. But when it’s Biden they just look the other way,” Sanders said.

Biden’s frequent confusions make it doubtful that his physical and mental condition will allow him to take over the management of the country, if he is elected on Nov. 3.
One such mistake was made by Biden on June 25, at a campaign stop in Pennsylvania, saying that 120 million people had died from the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) Virus. According to Johns Hopkins’s figures, there were more than 122,000 deaths in the United States at that time.
