Democrat career politician Joe Biden was pressed over his “cognitive fitness” by Newsmax chief White House correspondent James Rosen on Wednesday, during Biden’s second solo news conference.
“I’d like to raise a delicate subject, but with utmost respect for your life accomplishments and the high office you hold,” Rosen humbly said.
“A poll released this morning by Politico Morning Consult found 49% of registered voters disagreeing with the statement ‘Joe Biden is mentally fit'”, Biden smiled and scoffed at the statement as the Newsmax chief White House correspondent continued.
“Not even a majority of Democrats, who responded, strongly affirmed that statement,” Rosen told Biden.
“I’ll let you all make the judgment whether they’re correct,” Biden, who turned 79 in November, said.
Rosen pressed on with the question: “Well, so the question I have for you, sir, if you’d let me finish, is why do you suppose such large segments of the American electorate have come to harbor such profound concerns about your cognitive fitness?” Continued Below
