White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre faced scrutiny during a news briefing regarding President Joe Biden’s cognitive test.

Despite signs of mental decline at age 81, Jean-Pierre insisted that Biden’s doctors do not believe he needs a cognitive exam.

“The president doesn’t need a cognitive test,” Jean-Pierre said. “That is not my assessment.”

“That is the assessment of the president’s doctor,” she said. “That is also the assessment of the neurologist who has also made that assessment as well.”

She emphasized that the president passes a cognitive test daily, leading to skepticism and calls for transparency.

“The president’s doctor has said, if you look at what this president, the president who is also the commander in chief, he passes a cognitive test every day, every day,” Jean-Pierre said.

“Given that there’s been so much scrutiny … why not just have his doctor administer the test?” a reporter asked.

“Because the doctor doesn’t believe that he needs one,” Jean-Pierre said.

“The president passes, again, a cognitive test every day.”

The repeated emphasis on assessments and topics, along with deflecting questions about administering a test, raised doubts about the administration’s transparency and Biden’s cognitive abilities.

The situation additionally highlighted concerns about truthfulness and accountability within the White House.
