White House Suggests Biden Won’t Take Cognitive Test During Physical Exam

The White House suggested on Monday that President Joe Biden will not take a cognitive test during his yearly physical exam — despite overwhelming skepticism from voters that he has the mental fitness needed to serve a second term.

“And so, he shows it every day on how he thinks, how he operates,” she continued. “And so, that is how — that is how Dr. O’Connor sees it. And that’s how I’m going to leave it.”

Polling has shown that the  86% of Americans believe Biden, who has not taken a cognitive test since being in office, is too old to be president again, while 76% have concerns about his mental fitness.
