Breaking: Jill Biden Responds to Call for Mental Competency Test

Published on

During an interview with CNN that will appear on Monday, First Lady Jill Biden deemed it “crazy” to require legislators over the age of 75 to undergo mental competence testing.

Biden was asked if, if re-elected, her husband, President Joe Biden, would consider taking a cognitive test.

She said, “We would never even discuss something like that.”

Mental competence checks for lawmakers above the age of 75, according to Jill Biden, are “ridiculous.”


The first lady mentioned Biden’s recent trip to Europe as proof that he had the stamina to lead the nation.

“How many 30-year-olds could travel to Poland, get on the train? Go nine more hours, go to Ukraine, meet with President (Volodymyr) Zelenskyy?” she said to CNN

“So, look at the man. Look what he’s doing. Look what he continues to do each and every day,” she continued.

For years, suspicion has surrounded Biden’s cognitive health.

Jill Biden stated that she would support her husband’s re-election bid in 2024, but added, “It’s Joe’s decision.”

“And we support whatever he wants to do. If he’s in, we’re there. If he wants to do something else, we’re there, too,” she ended.

The first lady is the most recent politician to address the problem of competence assessments for leaders aged over 75.

Former Republican Gov. Nikki Haley called for such requirements when she announced her 2024 presidential bid last month.

“In the America I see, the permanent politician will finally retire,” she said. “We’ll have term limits for Congress. And mandatory mental competency tests for politicians over 75 years old.” CONTINUE READING…
