No question about it.
President Biden will not take a cognitive test as part of his upcoming physical exam, the White House confirmed Monday.
White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre stated that Biden’s physician, Dr. Kevin O’Connor, does not believe a cognitive test is necessary. She said O’Connor believes Biden proves his cognitive ability “every day [in] how he operates and how he thinks.”
That was from a year ago, but KJP wanted to demonstrate that Joe’s not the only one who doesn’t know what year it is.
But in entirely unrelated news…

Does Biden need a cognitive test provided by a medical professional? Someone could simply ask him what year his son died, where and of what. He’s demonstrated repeatedly that he doesn’t know the answer. As tragic and unpleasant as that topic is, it shows up in the public domain and in the Special Counsel’s report.
“In his interview with our office, Mr. Biden’s memory was worse. He did not remember when he was vice president, forgetting on the first day of the interview when his term ended (‘if it was 2013 – when did I stop being Vice President?’), and forgetting on the second day of the interview when his term began (‘in 2009, am I still Vice President?’). He did not remember, even within several years, when his son Beau died.”
Alan Dershowitz and some Dems are arguing that Hur was outside his lane and this should not have been included (but then again we sailed past such standards a while ago with Dems at the helm of the ship) but is anyone seriously arguing it’s not true?
Instead, we keep hearing about how sharp, vital and vigorous Biden is. So vigorous that lids are called early and he can’t go down the stairs anymore. But at least, unlike his Secretary of Defense, he isn’t in a hospital bed.
By this administration’s standards, that probably counts as very vital and vigorous.
