Addressing what he said is Trump’s failure to handled to COVID-19 pandemic, Biden said, “You know, I used to think it was because of his personality, but I just don’t think he can intellectually handle it.”

Biden’s wife, Jill Biden, was recently asked if attacks on the former vice president’s cognitive abilities are a “fair attack.” She said, “No, it’s ridiculous.”

“Joe’s on the phone every single minute of the day talking to governors who are calling him and Nancy Pelosi. He’s on the Zoom, he’s doing fundraisers, he’s doing briefings. He doesn’t stop from 9 in the morning until 11 at night, so that’s ridiculous,” she added.

Trump has boasted that he “aced” a cognitive test, as IJR reported. In July, he tweeted, “[Biden] cannot pass the test I ‘aced.’ He should give it a try!”

When Biden was asked if he had taken a cognitive test, he responded, “No, I haven’t taken a test … Why the hell would I take a test? Come on, man.”

“What do you think? Huh? Are you a junkie?” he added.

Finally, Biden said, “I know you’re trying to goad me, but I mean … I’m so forward-looking to have an opportunity to sit with the president or stand with the president and the debates.”

For his part, Biden has argued that his cognitive abilities are “constantly tested.”
