“All you’ve got to do is watch me,” former Vice President Joe Biden said Tuesday when asked if he had experienced cognitive decline at age.

“Have you been tested for some degree of cognitive decline?” Fox News’ Doug McKelway asked the 77 year-old Biden at a press conference.

Biden did not reveal the results, but did acknowledge that he’s “constantly tested” and would love to match wits with President Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential race:

“I’ve been tested, I’m constantly tested. Look, all you’ve 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.”

"The president talks about cognitive capability, but he is not cognitively aware of what’s going on,” Biden said later during the event, Fox News reports, noting that the Trump campaign has taken to mocking Biden’s mental mistakes:

“Trump, 74,  and his campaign have come after Biden, 77, for his frequent gaffes, in May launching a faux ‘investigative’ series that spotlights his numerous verbal miscues on the campaign trail.”

As reported on Monday, a new, national Rasmussen survey finds that 38% of U.S. likely voters “believe Joe Biden is suffering from some form of dementia” and 61% think it’s important that he publicly address the issue of his persistent gaffes and mental lapses.
