Top news right now: Texas GOP Rep. Ronny Jackson and 61 Republican colleagues have written a letter demanding President Biden take a cognitive test or withdraw from the 2024 presidential race. The letter expresses concern over the president’s “current cognitive state and ability to serve another term as President.” Despite undergoing two physical exams, the Republicans are calling for Biden to undergo a cognitive exam as well. They argue that the American people deserve transparency on the president’s mental capabilities and that national security relies on a cognitively sound Commander in Chief. A recent Harvard CAPS-Harris poll found that 57% of voters do not believe Biden is mentally fit to serve as president. The Republicans urge Biden to either renounce his bid for reelection or submit to a clinically validated cognitive screening assessment.
“We all know even if he took a cognitive test his doctor would lie about the results.”
