Joe Biden Goes On TV For Big Interview, Makes Cocaine Flub In Bad Sign For Dems

 CBS correspondent Errol Barnett asked a simple question – did Joe Biden take the same cognitive test that President Trump did or one similar.

A total meatball down the center of the plate that Joe should have smashed for a grand slam. But he did not in a bad, bad sign for the Dems. Not only did he flub it and mention cocaine out of nowhere but his laugh at the end was not an acknowledgment that he messed up but that he thought his comment was clever and funny. In short, if that’s what Biden thinks is a good line he is doomed in the debate.

“No, I haven’t taken a test. Why the hell would I take a test? C’mon man. 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?” (See video below)


From Politico:

A clip from the interview, which was conducted as part of the virtual convention of the National Association of Black Journalists and the National Association of Hispanic Journalists, was released Wednesday morning.

Biden has long bristled at claims that he is mentally slowing. President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign is prioritizing Biden’s cognitive ability as a key issue, aiming to portray Biden as doddering and incompetent.

At a press conference in late June, a reporter asked Biden if he had taken a cognitive test. The former vice president did not directly answer and instead claimed he was “constantly tested” by the demands of the campaign trail.

“I can hardly wait to compare my cognitive capability to the cognitive capability of the man I’m running against,” Biden said at the time.

In the interview segment released on Wednesday, Biden again went after Trump.

“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, referencing questions on Trump’s reported cognitive test that made headlines during a July interview with Chris Wallace of Fox News.

Biden, who is 77, would be the oldest person to assume the presidency on Inauguration Day if he is elected, beating Trump, 74, who is the current record-holder.
