Dr. Phil Urges President Biden To Take Cognitive Test

Dr. Phil McGraw weighed in Friday on the controversial decision for President Joe Biden to not take a cognitive test during his recent annual physical. The celebrity doctor said the president should take the exam to demonstrate he has nothing to hide.

Dr. Phil’s comments came on his appearance on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher.” He was asked about the debate over Biden not submitting to the test when many voters believe he is diminished mentally and unfit for a second term as president.

Maher asked, “Do you think President Biden should take a cognitive exam?”

McGraw answered, “If you got nothing — people that have nothing to hide, hide nothing. So, why not?” And this was not the first time the respected doctor answered such a query about the Democratic president.

Interviewed by TMZ last week, he noted that one of his practice specialties was “brain and central nervous system and cognitive ability.” These aspects of a person, McGraw explained, “are very measurable.”

He added, “If you really had nothing to hide, I think you would hide nothing. And if you’d had no problem with neurological deficits, wouldn’t you want to crow about that?”

Dr. Phil’s concern is also a worry for an overwhelming majority of Americans. A staggering 86% of voters in a recent survey replied that Biden is too old to be reelected as president.

These issues were further thrust into the spotlight with the report from Special Counsel Robert Hur.

In his investigation into Biden’s mishandled classified documents scandal, Hur ultimately chose not to prosecute the Democratic president. Why? Even though these materials were found in his old office and Delaware home, Hur concluded he’s an “elderly man with a poor memory.”

The White House struck back against the obvious assessment. Biden cursed in a press conference and insisted his memory was as sharp as ever.

Then he referred to Egyptian head of state Abdel Fattah al-Sisi as the “president of Mexico.”

Despite obvious lapses even noted within the left-wing media, Biden’s doctor last week determined that the president’s annual physical exam did not need to include a cognitive test.
