Biden Refuses To Commit To Having Independent Medical Evaluation Of His Neurological, Cognitive Functions

 President Joe Biden repeatedly refused to commit to having an independent medical evaluation of his neurological and cognitive functions as he tries to stave off an effort from inside his party to remove him from the top of the ticket.

Biden made the remarks during a Friday interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos following his disastrous debate performance last week against former President Donald Trump.

The 81-year-old said that he could not run a 100-yard dash in 10 seconds flat, but he was “still in good shape.”

He said that his doctors told him following the debate that he was just “exhausted” and that his doctors travel with him everywhere he goes.

“I have an ongoing assessment of what I’m doin’, and they don’t hesitate to tell me if they think there’s something wrong,” he claimed.

When asked if he’s had a “a full neurological and cognitive evaluation,” Biden said that he gets “a full neurological test every day” with performing the job of being president.

When asked if he’s had “specific cognitive tests” performed by a neurologist, Biden said: “No. No one said I had to. No one said. They said I’m good.”

“Would you be willing to undergo an independent medical evaluation that included neurological and cognitive tests and release the results to the American people?” Stephanopoulos asked.


“I have a cognitive test every single day,” Biden claimed. “Every day I have that test. Everything I do. You know, not only am I campaigning, but I’m running the world. Not– and that’s not hi– sounds like hyperbole, but we are the essential nation of the world.”

Biden was again asked if he would be willing to have an independent medical evaluation done to “reassure” the American people, to which he deflected: “Watch me between– there’s a lotta time left in this campaign. There’s over 125 days. They’ll make a decision.”

He then claimed that he’s “already done it.”
