Biden Lashes Out At CBS Reporter That Dared To Ask About His Cognitive Ability
Biden has been staying out of the limelight quite a bit for a presidential candidate. His campaign staff claims he is just doing local news instead of national, but it seems far more likely that he is just trying to hide his well being. But it appears he is trying to make an effort and came out of hiding to be interviewed by CBS’s Errol Barnett. Barnett asked Biden about his cognitive ability and whether he was going to take the test Trump had challenged him with. Biden became flustered and bashed the reporter before fumbling over how he wants to debate Trump.
"In an exchange with CBS’s Errol Barnett during a wide-ranging, multi-moderator interview at a conference of Black and Latino journalists, Biden balked at Barnett’s question about whether Biden had even taken an exam.
“No, I haven’t taken a test. Why the hell would I take a test?” responded Biden, who then posed a rhetorical analogy.
“C’mon man,” he chided Barnett. “That’s like saying, ‘You — before you got on this program you took a test where you’re taking cocaine or not, what do you think? Huh? Are you a junkie?’”
Barnett followed up by asking Biden what he would say to Trump, “who brags about his test and makes your mental state an issue for voters?”
“Well, if he can’t figure out the difference between an elephant and a lion, I don’t know what the hell he’s talking about,” said Biden with a laugh. “Look, c’mon man, I know you’re trying to goad me, but I’m so ... looking [forward] to have an opportunity to sit or stand with the president on the debates.”

It seems like Biden is trying to dodge this test like the plague. I doubt he would pass it with flying colors as Trump has. But regardless of how well he is doing, there is no reason to call a reporter a cokehead or junkie over a simple question. Is this how he is going to deal with the public, attacking them whenever asked a hard question? But I guess we already know the answer to that, with his lying dog face pony soldier insult that he made to a potential supporter.
