Biden’s Memory Lapses: Mexican President Forgotten, Need for Dementia Test Arises

President Joe Biden’s mental acuity has come under scrutiny, with allegations of memory lapses prompting a press conference to refute such claims. During this time, Gaza was mistakenly referred to, adding fuel to the controversy. Subsequently, Egypt’s leader Abdel Fattah al-Sisi was mistakenly addressed as Mexico’s President.

Concerns Over Biden’s Cognitive Fitness Escalate

Revelations from a classified document released two days ago described him as ‘showing signs of deteriorating mental acuity and diminished memory.’ This has intensified demands for cognitive testing in America. Former President Donald Trump has urged the White House to conduct this examination, following many skeptics’ concerns.

Trump Also Subjected to Cognitive Test

Claims by supporters suggest that only after passing this test can Biden demonstrate mental and physical well-being to continue holding this crucial position. Previously, Trump underwent a similar Gold Standard cognitive test in 2018.

Insights into the Cognitive Test

Introduced first in Canada in 1996, the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MOCA) emerged as the most reliable diagnostic tool for dementia worldwide. It assesses attention, concentration, memory, language, orientation, executive functions, and visuospatial skills.

The Test: Assessing Beyond Words

The test, lasting ten minutes, includes identifying animals like a camel, lion, and rhinoceros. Additionally, reading numbers from 1 to 5 and letters from A to E is required. Many variations exist, with a score above 26 considered normal. Trump scored a full 30 marks in this test.

Majority Worried About Biden’s Health

As of February 2022, 62% of Americans accepted they were concerned about President Biden’s mental and physical health. Former White House physician Ronnie Jackson, along with 37 lawmakers, demanded a Cognitive (Cogitive) Test, according to recent surveys by NBC News.

Demands for Youthful Leadership Echo

Former US President Dwight D. Eisenhower was apprehensive about seeking re-election for a second term due to age concerns when he was 64 years old in November 1954. He noted in his diary that the need for young leaders to take more responsibility is a necessity of the time. President Biden, 81, and Trump, a potential strong contender at 77 in the next election, are under scrutiny regarding their health for the next five years. This has reignited discussions about the need for youthful leadership in the country.
