Michigan Gov. Whitmer On Biden Taking A Cognitive Test


Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer on Wednesday suggested President Joe Biden taking a cognitive test may help clamp down concerns about his mental acuity, as the president faces growing calls from critics and even Democratic lawmakers to bow out of the Presidential race.

Key Facts

During an interview with the Michigan Gov. on CNN, anchor Abby Phillip asked if Biden should “just go ahead and take a cognitive test and demand that Donald Trump do the same?”

Whitmer responded, “I don’t think that would hurt, to be honest,” before acknowledging that the first presidential debate was “not a great success” for Biden.

Whitmer, however, dismissed calls for Biden to drop out of the race, calling him a “happy warrior” who “shows up everyday and fights for the American public.”
