Likely Democratic presidential nominee Joseph R. Biden rejected President Trump’s call that he take a cognitive test, saying it would be like a TV reporter’s getting tested for cocaine before going on air.
“No, I haven’t taken a test. Why the hell would I take a test? Come on, man,” Mr. Biden said in a clip that aired Wednesday on “CBS This Morning.”
“That’s like saying before you got on this program, you’re taking a test whether you’re taking cocaine or not,” the 77-year-old Mr. Biden said. “What do you think, huh? Are you a junkie?”
“If he can’t figure out the difference between an elephant and a lion, I don’t know what the hell he’s talking about,” Mr. Biden said, accusing the reporter of trying to “goad” him.
“I’m so forward-looking to have an opportunity to sit with the president or stand with the president [in] the debates,” he said.
