An irritated Joe Biden snapped at a reporter when pressed Wednesday on whether or not he had taken a cognitive check — defensively asking the interviewer if he was a junkie and examined for cocaine use.

The 77-year-old Democratic presidential nominee additionally confirmed he has by no means taken a cognitive check, countering remarks he made in June the place he mentioned he was “always examined” for psychological decline.

The heated change occurred throughout an interview with CBS correspondent Errol Barnett who requested Biden to make clear if he had taken a check to measure his psychological acuity.

“No, I haven’t taken a check. Why the hell would I take a check?” a defensive Biden requested.

“Come on, man. That’s like saying to you, earlier than you bought on this program, in the event you needed to take a check the place you’re taking cocaine or not. What do you assume, huh? Are you a junkie?”

Biden continued scoffing as Barnett requested him what he considered Trump, 74, making his psychological state a problem for voters.

“Look, man, I do know you’re attempting to goad me, however I’m wanting ahead to having a possibility to sit down with the president or stand with the president within the debates. There’s going to be loads of time,” he mentioned.

However the gaffe- and stunner-prone former veep stumbled over his phrases as he tried to make his case.

“I’m very keen to let the American public decide my private and psychological fil- my bodily in addition to my psychological fil- my health and to make a judgment about who I’m,” he mentioned.

Throughout a press convention in June the place he took questions for the primary time in three months, Biden advised reporters he was “always examined” for cognitive decline.

“All you gotta do is watch me and I can hardly wait to match my cognitive functionality to the cognitive functionality of the person I’m working towards,” he mentioned after calling the reporter a “mendacity canine face.”

With two septuagenarians duking it out for the White Home, competence is on the forefront of this presidential election.

The president has gone to nice lengths to show he’s as much as the job — repeatedly describing a check medical doctors reportedly gave to him and calling on Biden to take the identical.

Joe Biden Should Nominate Michelle Obama To The Supreme Court, Columnist Says

Joe Biden should honor the legacy of Ruth Bader Ginsburg by nominating Michelle Obama to the Supreme Court, columnist Roger House suggests.

Writing for The Hill, the Emerson College professor and expert on African American history wrote that the person who fills Ginsburg’s seat must be someone who can advance the causes of racial and gender equity that she upheld during her years on the bench. House suggested that Biden’s campaign find a landmark candidate to propose for the open seat, which has quickly become a matter of political contention.

“What it means is that the Biden campaign cannot simply propose to nominate a woman of traditional qualifications for the court,” he wrote. “If it is to make history, then it must spotlight a woman who embodies the dream of the civil rights movement. That person is former first lady Michelle LaVaughn Robinson Obama.”

He said that Obama would be the perfect nominee for a nation struggling with protests calling for racial justice, and Americans could be comforted by her dedication to the ideals of equal justice and fairness. She would also bring an important perspective that to date has been missing on the Supreme Court, he posited.

“Moreover, she brings insight as a Black woman of dark complexion who struggled to be confident in a society that values whiteness and lightness. Like the abolitionist Sojourner Truth, she learned to ‘sell the shadow to support the substance’ of life as a Black mother and professional woman,” he wrote, adding that Obama has also learned to follow Truth in tempering her emotions in order to serve as a national voice for racial and gender equality.

While House has called on Biden to jump into the debate over what will happen with Ginsburg’s open spot on the Supreme Court, many others on the left have called for the process to wait until after the election and the next president is sworn in this coming January.

As The Inquisitr reported, Biden has released a statement saying that voters should pick the next president, and that person should pick the nominee for the U.S. Senate to consider. He noted that this was the position that Republicans had taken in 2016 following the passing of Justice Antonin Scalia, who died with 10 months to go until the presidential election, and should remain the standard now. But Republicans have said they plan to move forward with filling the seat, calling on Donald Trump to put forward a nominee.
