Donald Trump's cognitive decline is 'more apparent' than Joe Biden's with 'slurred speech and gross, repeated errors' but both are concerning, a professor has warned. Politics professor Paul Quirk from the University of British Columbia assessed both the presidential front runners' cognitive functioning - after a series of gaffes raised questions about their fitness to hold office. He told Newsweek that 77-year-old Trump's cognitive deterioration is more obvious, but Biden's 'cognitive failure' could result in him refusing to relinquish control if needed during his second term.

This can be resolved easily. Have the two candidates meet for a one-on-one debate, no moderators. Trump asks Biden a question and Biden answers. Then Biden asks Trump a question and Trump answers. We will see soon enough which candidate is cognitively impaired.

Trump has been giving hours long speeches near daily, to massive crowds, that ALL seem to be able to understand him quite well. Biden gets lost in anything seven minutes or a secure room, with a bank of teleprompters, that he has studied and practiced on for hours if not days. Then STILL. various spokemodels have to come right back out and "Explain" what it was he just said.

Professor Quirk received his Ph.D. at Harvard (1978) and taught at several U. S. universities; was a research associate at the Brookings Institution; a U.S. citizen and lifelong resident until joining the UBC faculty in 2004; written numerous articles/opinions, books; served on editorial boards of several major journals; received two awards; is “active in the U. S. Studies Program at UBC and is currently chair of the U. S. politics area committee in the graduate program.” His assessment of President Trump may be wishful thinking but is for certain delusional. As some Ldotters have noted, there is no doubt a continuing leftist agenda to destroy President Trump that includes usage of several Saul Alinsky’s twelve “Rules for Radicals” tactics.

Joe Biden's administration has admitted transporting migrants on secret flights into the U.S. and lawyers for its immigration agencies claim revealing the locations could create national security 'vulnerabilities'. Customs and Border Protection has refused to disclose information about a program last year secretly arranging flights for thousands of undocumented immigrants from foreign airports directly to U.S. cities. It means that while record numbers of migrants were flowing over the southern border last year, the Biden White House was also directly transporting them into the country. Use of a cell phone app has allowed for the near undetected arrival by air of 320,000 aliens with no legal rights
