The White House press secretary disclosed that President Biden did not receive a cognitive test during his recent annual physical examination, as his doctor does not believe one is necessary.

When asked about increased scrutiny around Biden’s cognitive abilities given his age, the press secretary claimed that Biden “passes a cognitive test every day” through his job as president.

A reporter asked Karine Jean-Pierre, “Given that there’s been so much scrutiny … why not just have his doctor administer the test?”

Jean-Pierre replied, “Folks need to understand that the president passes a cognitive test every day.”

“So, his doctor, including the neurologist, does not believe that he needs one,” continued the Press Secretary.

However, the special counsel’s report on Biden’s classified document scandal described the president as an “elderly man with a poor memory” who was not competent to stand trial.

Polling also found that 67% of voters believe Biden is too old to serve a second term, and that only around a third see him as physically and mentally fit for another term.
