GOP Rep. Andy Oglesto to introduce bill that would require Biden to disclose any drugs he uses to improve cognitive abilities 

Rep. Andy Ogles, R-Tenn., indicated Thursday that he plans to introduce legislation that would require President Biden to notify Congress if he takes any cognitive-enhancing drugs.

“We know he’s taking some kind of cocktail to gain cognitive ability, functional ability and energy,” the Tennessee Republican argued. “Restoring the Republic” Web show.

The first-term congressman argued that the “No Juice Joe Act” is necessary because the White House has refused to test the 81-year-old president’s cognitive abilities and the American public has a right to know whether Biden is taking medication to enhance performance.

“The White House will not give him any testing for that, so we are asking him to submit and notify Congress when he is taking any type of cocktail or anything that may alter his mental state or ability to perform,” Ogles said.

“People need to understand who Joe Biden is. Can he really be the leader of the free world? I don’t think so,” the 52-year-old Republican added.

“I feel sorry for Joe Biden,” Ogles continued, “I don’t think he knows where he is or who he is sometimes, and that’s unfortunate. Some might argue that it’s elder abuse.”

Biden, the oldest president in U.S. history, began to walk away from the group during a skydiving demonstration at the G7 summit in southern Italy on Thursday, only rejoining the group of world leaders after host country Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni pulled him back into the group.

It was the latest of several recent instances in which the president has appeared confused in public.

“This is not the message we want to send on the world stage,” Ogles said of the bizarre moment.

Last month, former President Donald Trump demanded that Biden submit to drug testing ahead of the two presidential debates that both candidates agreed to participate in.

In calling for drug testing, the 77-year-old Republican candidate cited incumbent Biden’s State of the Union address in March, claiming that Biden was “high” at the time.

Trump and Biden have agreed to debate on June 27 and September 10.

“I’m skeptical that there will be any discussions. Let’s wait and see,” Ogles said.

The Washington Post has reached out to the White House for comment.
