(PatriotHeadline.com)- Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee had clear issues with his cognitive ability at the beginning of his presidential run, and now more than a year later, things are looking much worse. Conservative journalist and former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino stoked the fire on the issue of Biden’s rapidly declining cognitive ability recently by repeating claims but sources close to the campaign about Biden’s health.
Bongino, who has millions of followers and a wildly popular news aggregation site that was set up to replace the Drudge Report, stated on Facebook and Twitter that sources “close to the situation” are aware of Bidens’ rapidly declining cognitive ability and are faced with a tough decision. It comes as the Biden camp delays the announcement of Biden’s running mate pick.
“Not a joke and not hyperbole – I’m hearing from people close to the situation that Biden’s cognitive decline is rapidly worsening and is becoming increasingly difficult to mask,” Bongino said. “The Democrats are going to have to make a decision soon.”

Biden has been defensive over the issue of his cognitive ability, claiming that he “constantly” takes cognitive tests when challenged by a reporter. Biden refused to expand on the claim, however, and didn’t explain what tests he had taken and why he considered it necessary to “constantly” take the tests.
During a Democratic Party presidential debate in Houston, Texas, last year, Biden’s cognitive health was brought up and he wasn’t happy about it then, either. Julian Castro, the former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development who attempted to run for president but had to fold early on, asked Biden, “Are you forgetting what you said two minutes ago?”
Biden had just said that people wouldn’t have to “buy in” to his proposed healthcare plan and then claimed he hadn’t said it. It turned out that Castro was right.
If Bongino is right, then the delay of the announcement of Biden’s running mate could be a result of Democrats scrambling to consider Biden’s viability as a candidate.
