Presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden, 77, demonstrated his alleged cognitive superiority Tuesday by calling a Fox News reporter a “lying dog face” as the reporter questioned him about his otherwise apparent cognitive decline.
During a speech that afternoon at a school in his hometown of Wilmington, Delaware, Biden took several questions from an unnamed Fox News reporter.
The reporter’s third and final question concerned the former VP’s mental health.
“Some have speculated that you are subject to some degree of cognitive decline. I’m 65. I don’t have word recollection that I used to have. I forget my train of thought from time to time. You’ve got 12 years on me, sir. Have you been tested for some degree of cognitive decline?” the reporter asked.
But as the reporter tried speaking, Biden interrupted him to exclaim, “You’re a lying dog face!”
REPORTER: “Have you been tested for some degree of cognitive decline?”
BIDEN: “I’ve been tested, and I’m constantly tested. Look, all you have to do is watch me.”

After the reporter concluded reading his question, Biden offered a reply.
“I’ve been tested. I’m constantly testing. Look, all you got to do is watch me and I can hardly wait to compare my cognitive capability to the cognitive capability of the man I’m running against. Thank you so much,” he said.
Notice how he spoke of “the man I’m running against.” It’s not clear if he’d been speaking vaguely on purpose or he’d simply forgotten the name of the president.
It’s also not clear what prompted Biden to accuse the reporter of being a “lying dog face.” It seems like he said it before the reporter even had a chance to read his question.
The whole incident was ironic, because if anything, it demonstrated Biden’s inability to learn from his past errors, which is a clear sign of cognitive decline.
The last time he called someone a “lying dog face” back in February, he got bashed for being unable to handle a simple question and for being a jerk.

I’m not a professional political analyst or anything, but I’m pretty sure female voters don’t like to be called DOG FACE

He called a young woman a “lying, dog-face, pony soldier”. Where’s the outrage, Mainstream Media? Isn’t that a bit worse than “binders full of women”? #MeToo

Biden’s campaign strategy: insult potential voters, tell them to vote for someone else. Sniff humans and other general malarkey. 😬

Where’s all the accusations of misogyny? Biden touches women inappropriately, sniffs them etc and now says this woman has a “dog face”. Why the double standard from Centrists and the media??

If this were Trump every lede would be like “Yes, ‘pony soldier’ is a racist term, but let’s not overlook the deep sexism of ‘dog-faced.’”

Four months later, he’s repeated the same mistake. Not a good look.
Note also how he said he’s “tested regularly” for cognitive impairment. But why? Why would someone be tested regularly for cognitive impairment? Is it possible he thought the reporter was referring to coronavirus tests? Some believe so. It’s either that or he’s been having cognitive problems:
People wonder about Biden’s “I get tested regularly” comment. Here’s my thought: He conflated the question re cognitive decline with coronavirus. He gets tested regularly for coronavirus but will match up with Trump’s cognition. THE CONFUSION IS JUST ANOTHER SIGN OF HIS DEMENTIA.

The fact he “constantly tested” is a huge red flag. WHY? What’s wrong with him that constant tests are necessary? I think what comes out of his mouth every time he opens it is the answer

Doctors only frequently administer cognitive tests when there is a serious problem. If there wasn’t any problems one would rarely if ever get a cognitive test. These are not part of any routine physical. When is the last time you had one if you didn’t show any cognitive problems?

Biden on undergoing cognitive testing: “I’ve been tested, I’m constantly tested.” — during press conference in Delaware.
Follow up questions:
1. If so, why? Why are you constantly tested on your cognitive ability?
2. When will you release the results of this “constant testing”?

Fox News host Sean Hannity posed the same questions late Tuesday.
“Let me get this straight. He’s constantly being tested for cognitive abilities? Why is Joe Biden getting constantly tested for a cognitive decline? After hearing that, I’m wondering if maybe all Americans need cognitive testing regularly,” he said on Fox News’ “Hannity.”
“That concerns me. Does that concern the American people? Are they going to ask the ever-forgetful, weak Joe Biden why he’s being constantly tested for cognitive decline?”
The media certainly won’t.
But Biden’s verbal altercation with the unnamed reporter wasn’t the only odd incident that occurred during his speech. During another portion of it, his sign language interpreter grew visibility confused and frustrated as she tried to decipher how exactly to sign the word salad that he was spouting from his mouth.
