Joe Biden Should Take The Cognitive Test Trump Aced

I don’t claim the expertise to assess to what degree Biden’s 'gaffes' are a concern, but they're numerous. With all the speculation about cognitive impairment, there's a way to find out so we can drop the subject.
It’s becoming increasingly probable that former Vice President Joe Biden will be the Democratic Party nominee for president. At the same time, among Republicans anyway, speculation continues that, as for about 10 percent of Americans within his age range, Biden is impaired with dementia.
Biden’s Mental State a Subject of Broad Speculation
Here’s Roger Kimball writing at The Spectator’s U.S. edition:
Some people dismiss evidence of Biden’s incapacity as just a matter of ‘gaffes,’ little mental hiccups of no consequence. They aren’t ‘gaffes,’ i.e., simple mistakes. They are tokens of serious mental incapacity. Judge for yourself. Here’s Biden from a couple of weeks ago announcing that he is running for the US Senate (ah, the good old days).
Or how about his claim that ‘150 million’ Americans have been killed by guns since 2007? Or here he is trying to get his mind (and his mouth) around the Declaration of Independence: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident: all men and women are created, by the, you know the, you know the thing.’
Donald Trump Jr. went further:
From the Alzheimers association webpage ‘Aggressive or angry behaviors may occur in people with Alzheimer’s or other dementias,’ the president’s eldest son said Tuesday on Twitter in response to a video of Biden berating a Michigan man. ‘A 50 year career politician doesn’t snap back this way to a blue collar guy asking him a reasonable question given his parties stance on the issue.’
And Victor David Hansen, writing at National Review, observes:
The problem is that we have never before witnessed a major party’s likely candidate who so early in the race seems unable to meet the grueling demands of the spring, summer, and fall campaign trail, much less the anticipated duties of president — especially from the party who insisted so loudly that Trump was non compos mentis that it apparently prompted the president to take the Montreal Cognitive Assessment screening test, which he aced, but which a current Joe Biden might well not be able to ace if similarly accused of being mentally unfit and removable via the 25th Amendment.
Now, I don’t claim the expertise to assess to what degree Biden’s “gaffes” are a concern. What did raise concerns for me, however, was an incident back last summer: --->
