WATCH: Nikki Haley Calls For Older Politicians to Take Cognitive Tests Before Running for Office

For the four years that he was in office, there were plenty of questions about both Donald Trump’s physical and mental health. Republicans essentially ignored the questions, instead painting the former president as a “stable genius.”

Those same GOP lawmakers, however, have no issues calling Joe Biden’s mental health into question. During a recent interview, Nikki Haley went as far as calling for older politicians to take cognitive tests.

The one-time Trump cabinet member made the comments during a recent interview with David Brody. The host asked, “Why is the press not demanding what his current mental health records are? Do you have concerns about his mental health?”

Haley answered, “We seriously need to have a conversation. If you’re going to have anyone above a certain age in a position of power, whether it’s the House, whether it’s the Senate, whether it’s vice president, whether it’s president, you should have some sort of cognitive test, just like you have to show your tax returns.”

The former South Carolina governor continued, “This shouldn’t be partisan. You look at Biden and I think there’s a concern. I think there ‘s a concern when people say, ‘Who’s really making the decisions here?”

Haley failed to mention Trump during the conversation. She also didn’t have anything to say about Chuck Grassley. The 88 year old Iowa senator recently announced he’d be running for reelection.
