Joe Biden hits back at suggestion he should take cognitive test

Joe Biden is pushing back at Republican assertions that he should take a cognitive test to disprove President Donald Trump’s claim that the Democrat is not fit for the Oval Office.

Mr Biden was irked when CBS News correspondent Errol Barnett asked the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee about the matter in a recent interview.

“I’m so forward-looking to have an opportunity to sit with the president or stand with the president and the debates,” Mr Biden said.

He later said he was “very willing to let the American public judge my physical, mental — my physical, as well as my mental fitness and to, you know, to make a judgment about who I am”.

Allies of both Mr Trump and Mr Biden often seize on the other’s verbal slips.

Both men have provided enough material to generate widely shared video mashups of their mistakes.

Mr Biden’s third White House bid has drawn renewed attention on his lifelong struggle as a stutterer.
