Biden dodges answering about taking neurological test

President Biden dodged questions from ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos about taking a neurological test, saying he has a cognitive test “every single day.”

Stephanopoulos asked Biden about his conversation with the doctor after last week’s debate.

Biden said the doctor looked at him and said he was “exhausted.”

“I said, ‘I am,’” Biden said, adding that medical doctors travel with him everywhere and assess what he is doing all the time.

“They don’t hesitate to tell me they think there’s something wrong,” he said.

Stephanopoulos acknowledged Biden said he has an ongoing assessment, but then asked the president if he has had a full neurological and cognitive evaluation.

Biden dodged the question, saying he has a full neurological test every day. He also said he’s had a full physical.

“I know your doctor said he consulted with a neurologist. I guess I'm asking a slightly different question,” Stephanopoulos said. “Have you had the specific cognitive tests and have you had a neurologist, a specialist, do an examination?”

Biden answered nobody told him he had to take a neurological test because they said he was good.

The host then asked if he would be willing to undergo an independent medical evaluation that included neurological and cognitive tests to be revealed to the American people.

“Look, I have a cognitive test every single day. Every day I have a test,” Biden said.
