MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough argued Monday that former President Donald Trump sounds “cognitively impaired” after Trump made a slip-up during a speech.

Speaking at a summit Friday, Trump argued President Joe Biden is “cognitively impaired” and would send the country into “World War II.”

Trump has also come under scrutiny after some argue that he mixed up Biden and former President Barack Obama.

“As you know, crooked Joe Biden and the radical left thugs have weaponized law enforcement to arrest their leading political opponent, and leading by a lot, including Obama – I’ll tell you what, you take a look at Obama, at some of the things he’s done, the country is very divided,” Trump said before later saying, “with Obama, we won an election that everyone said couldn’t be won.”

“It just never gets old,” Scarborough said in response to the video, cracking up. “World War II, and again, Reverend, he’s talking about Joe Biden being cognitively impaired, he looks cognitively impaired!”

“I don’t know if either of them are cognitively impaired, they get tired, sometimes, you know, Donald Trump thinks we’re about to start World War II, Biden thinks that Ukraine is Iraq, you know, you get tired, you get confused, it happens,” Scarborough continued. “It happens to both sides, you know, the question is, are they gonna keep talking about Joe Biden being cognitively impaired when Donald Trump sounds cognitively impaired every time he talks and now he is running against Barack Obama.”


“Well, we never heard Joe Biden say he is running against Barry Goldwater, and we’ve never heard him say that he could end World War I,” Rev. Al Sharpton responded. (RELATED: Fox Runs Clip Of Biden Mumbling Incoherently. John Kirby: ‘He Was Very Clear’)

Biden has had his fair share of gaffes. Staffers recently rushed to get the president off stage during a conference in Vietnam after Biden, in the middle of an answer on Russia and China, said, “I don’t know about you, but I’m gonna go to bed.” Biden then tried to answer a separate question and began to trail off before staffers cut the presser short.

Biden told veterans in Utah in August that he has traveled “tens of thousands of miles” in war zones and another time confused South America and Asia.
