In a recent interview with Fox News’ Dr. Marc Siegel, President Trump talked about a mental acuity test that he had recently aced and said that Joe Biden should take one, too.
“In a certain way, Joe Biden has an obligation to take a test. Joe should take that test because something is going on. Honestly, he should take the test, in a way, as an obligation to, because you have to be able to show this country that the person we’re picking as leader is sharp.
If you weren’t already convinced that Biden needs to take the test by some of his past performances, he confirmed his need for a test recently during a rare public appearance.
No doubt, Biden’s campaign wanted him to toss the racist ball into Trump’s court because Biden has actual racial insensitivity problems of his own, such as telling radio host Charlemagne Tha God that he wasn’t black if he wasn’t ready to vote for Biden, remarking that poor kids are just as bright as “white” kids, and the other numerous racially insensitive comments he’s has made in the past, some of which are part of the congressional record.
But Biden fumbled the assignment and rattled his DNC handlers when he asserted in an interview with SEIU representatives that President Trump was the first racist president ever elected. Firstly, Trump is not a racist and so is neither the first, the last, nor between racist president. Secondly, as even Biden supporters know, many of our early presidents were slaveholders, and thus would be considered racist.
Those darn little historical factoids always seem to slip right out of his declining mind, getting him into serious trouble with his own supporters.
Jake Tapper, one of CNN’s Democrat apologists, chided Biden for his lack of historical acumen.

Charles Blow, a New York Times columnist — and a Biden supporter — saw Biden’s comment as a liability and counseled Biden in a tweet to stop saying things like “Trump is the first racist president to get elected.”
All the way, absolutely, COMPLETELY wrong. Just say less. We don’t want Trump. You’re the other choice. Just stop saying things like this.
And if the “Trump first racist president” gaffe wasn’t bad enough, Biden added an even stranger postscript. Biden shared intimate details of care he received during a hospital at Walter Reed Military Hospital in Washington D.C. –possibly in 2007 after he received surgery for a brain aneurism — and rattled on about how the nurses took care of him. Biden said that during his stay, the nurses were “whispering into his ears, getting him pillows, and breathing into his nose” to get him moving. This story, another in Biden’s growing portfolio of weird stories about his experiences, does nothing to instill confidence in his ability to lead the free world.
I had a nurse– nurses at Walter Reed hospital who would bend down and whisper in my ear, go home and get me pillows. They would … actually breathe in my nostrils to make me move, to get me moving.”
Add these most recent comments to Biden’s other stories and you wind up with the shadow of a man suffering from mental decline and more fit for assisted living and memory care than the White House. The Trump campaign would do well to keep the pressure on Biden for his slipping cognitive abilities and his racist past.
