Biden Team Doubles Down on His ‘Junkie’ Comment

Biden Team Doubles Down on His ‘Junkie’ Comment

August 7, 2020

Breitbart News reports that Joe Biden’s campaign has doubled down on the candidate’s stunning recent comment to a black reporter who asked if Biden had submitted to a cognitive assessment.

In an appearance with the National Association of Black Journalists, Errol Barnett mentioned widespread concerns about Biden’s mental acuity and asked if Biden had undergone a mental exam. “No, I haven’t taken a test! Why the hell would I take a test? C’mon, man!” snapped Biden, who had recently said he was tested constantly.

Biden then challenged Barnett, “That’s like saying you, before you got in this program, if you take a test where you’re taking cocaine or not, what do you think? Huh? Are you a junkie?”

An anonymous campaign official later defended Biden: “It was a preposterous question deserving of a response that showed the absurdity of it all.” Actually, it showed that the ill-tempered Biden’s mental instability and deeply-ingrained racism are too serious to ignore.
