JOE Biden called a reporter a “lying dog face” after he was asked if he’d been tested for “cognitive decline”.

Speaking at a press conference on Tuesday, the presumptive Democratic nominee took questions from reporters for the first time since the pandemic hit in March.

Having been questioned about his cognition, the former VP snapped: “You’re a lying dog face,” adding that he was “constantly tested”, the NY Post reported.

Tuesday’s outburst was not the first time Biden had wheeled out the “dog face” insult.

During a campaign event in New Hampshire in February, Biden called a woman a “lying dog-faced pony soldier”, which drew laughter from the crowd.

The phrase is from a John Wayne movie, his campaign pointed out, and was meant as a joke.

Biden also slammed President Trump during his appearance for the administration’s coronavirus response.

Biden said Trump was failing to act, and chastised him for “rejecting science” and “hoping for the best”.

“Month after month, as leaders in other countries took the necessary steps to get the virus under control, Donald Trump failed us,” Biden said.

“It’s almost July and it seems our wartime president has surrendered, waved the white flag and abandoned the battlefield,” Biden added.

“We don’t need a cheerleader, Mr. President. We need a president, Mr. President,” he added.

“All you gotta do is watch me and I can hardly wait to compare my cognitive capability to the cognitive capability of the man I’m running against,” he added.

“He talks about cognitive capability. He doesn’t seem to be cognitively aware of what’s going on.”

“He either reads and/or gets briefed on important issues and he forgets it or he doesn’t think it’s necessary that he needs to know it,” Biden continued.

Biden also attacked Trump for his “midnight rantings and tweets” and for “turning wearing a mask into a political statement”.

He also said he would ask Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, to work for him if elected.

“Dr. Fauci will have full access to the Oval Office and an uncensored platform to speak directly to the American people — whether delivering good news or bad,” Biden revealed.

COVID-19 cases have spiked across the US in recent weeks, causing several states to go back into lockdown.

As of Tuesday, the US has confirmed more than 2.6million cases of COVID-19, and more than 129,000 Americans have died.

The president has blamed higher case numbers in the US to increased testing.

Late last month, Trump called it a “badge of honor” that America had the most confirmed cases in the world.

“It’s a great tribute to the testing and all of the work that a lot of professionals have done,” Trump said.

“If you’re testing 14 million people, you’re going to find many more cases,” he added.

He continued: “So when we have a lot of cases, I don’t look at that as a bad thing, I look at that as, in a certain respect, as being a good thing because it means our testing is much better.”


 

Recent polls from The New York Times and Siena college have shown Biden in a lead against Trump.

One survey on a variety of Biden and the president on a number different issues, however, found Trump held favor with Americans in the economy.

With four months to the election, Trump could still polls – as he did in the 2016 against Hillary Clinton – and pull a win in the election.
