Jill Calls Nikki Haley’s Proposal for Mental Competency Tests “Ridiculous”

Jill Calls Nikki Haley’s Proposal for Mental Competency Tests “Ridiculous”

On the campaign trail, 2024 GOP presidential hopeful Nikki Haley has proposed “mental competency” tests for politicians seeking executive office, an idea that First Lady Jill Biden says is “ridiculous.” 

While not specifically aimed at her husband, Haley’s implication was obvious. The first lady criticized Haley’s proposal to require politicians over 75 to take a mental competency test as “ridiculous” during a recent CNN interview.

Brushing off concerns over President Joe Biden’s age, the first lady was asked whether he would consider taking such a test and responded, “We would never even discuss something like that.”

Haley, 51, has framed her presidential bid around a “new generation” of leadership. In a speech last month launching her campaign, she called for mandatory mental competency tests for politicians over 75 years old. That includes Biden, 80, and former President Donald Trump, 76.

Joe Biden, who is currently serving as the nation’s oldest president, has said it’s his “intention” to run for re-election in 2024. The first lady pointed to his rigorous recent travels as evidence of his stamina.

“How many 30-year-olds could travel to Poland, get on the train? Go nine more hours, go to Ukraine, meet with President (Volodymyr) Zelenskyy?” she said. “So, look at the man. Look what he’s doing. Look what he continues to do each and every day.”

President Biden has faced continued concerns about whether his age could hinder his candidacy or performance in the nation’s top office. Still, Democrats have rallied around Biden even before he has officially launched his candidacy.

Last month, the first lady said her husband was ready to run, with “pretty much” nothing left to do but prepare for the announcement.

“He says he’s not done,” Jill Biden told The Associated Press. “He’s not finished what he’s started. And that’s what’s important.

In a more direct attack on Biden, Haley called on the Biden administration to get tough on a slew of foreign adversaries or risk war after an American citizen was killed in an Iranian drone strike in Syria.

“It shows what happens when there’s American weakness,” Haley said last week. of the attack on “America’s Newsroom.” “Whether it’s in Afghanistan, whether you see it in Ukraine, whether you see it on the southern border, you’re going to continue to see more of these things happen.”

    Nicky who? Jill who? So, a nobody said something and a who cares retorted.

    JG should get his money back for this one.

    • Rudy

      So that just shows what an incompetent doctor ” Dr” Jill is, doesn’t it?

      • frank stetson

        Actually it shows Rudy as an idiot who is too stupid to look it up.

        She’s not a mental health Doctor,
        She’s not a medical Doctor,
        She doesn’t even have a P
        She’s got an Ed.D or doctorate in Education, not even a PhD in education, smart guy.

        And yet she still runs circles around your lack of a sufficient education. Not even smart enough to look up what kind of Doctor she might be, but is even more stupid to wing it and suggest she’s in the medical field.

        • Theodore

          What’s stupid, is her demanding to be called “Dr.” without even trying to explain that she is nothing but a relatively educated idiot, maybe a little along your line.

          • Frank stetson

            Except that’s the convention for her to be called Dr. In respect for her educational attainment. Making your stupid, stupid. And yeah, I am a well educated idiot, tyvm, and you are not

    I’m a RN and he is definitely in a Dementia stage! I think they load him up on drugs to get him up there!
    I feel sorry for him. This is Elder abuse! I’m with Nicki and I think Jill just wants to called First Lady! Shame on her!

    • Frank stetson

      Why would being an RN let you make that call from behind your pc?

      How about Trump? Sociopath? Tell us ms. RN.

    I see nothing wrong with mental competency tests, but why limit them by age. This is what would be called age discrimination. There are many people who I feel would fail a mental test, Biden due to brain issues, Trump do to narcissism and denial issues, DeSantis due to authoritarian issues, Nikki Haley because she is soon to be in full blown menopause which causes mental issues, Buttigeig because he is gay and many people have gay persecution issues, no trannies can qualify because that is a gender dysphoria psychological disorder issues, Cher because she has an eating disorder rooted in psych issues. Heck, even my savior, Jesus Christ would not qualify because he actually willfully went to and layed on a cross so he could be nailed to it, and then forgave them for nailing him – he got persecution issues and way left liberal issues by forgiving those that nailed him – that’s crazy insane but he did it!!!

    So who is left??? Answer: Dream ticket would be Larry Horist as POTUS (will give us 401L x10 wealth plans) and Frank Stetson as VP (best research driven jabs on the PBP). Horist can play Cosell, and Stetson can play Ali. And you know how much we all loved watching Ali verbally abuse and slobber knock Cosell. This would be a very fun ticket that this independent would vote for.

      As a comedian, on this post, don’t quit the day job. That was a long road for a short laugh, sorry.

      especially on top of your true colors shining through, homophobia :>)

      how’d you missed the illegal aliens?

      • Tom

        As I said in an earlier post, not homophobia, its Godophobia. Not scared of any gay guy or girl which is what a phobia is. You gay lovers/sympathizers keep mixing me/us up! I have no problem with whatever strange sex stuff they want to do in private, its their butt, their choice. But when the government starts forcing knowledge of their perversion be taught in schools and libraries, and requires all of us to accept them and their pronouns, well, I have a phobia of what the God who created the universe will do to this country if it continues on its path of gay and trans. God says it is “an abomination” which means it makes him want to puke! Sorry if gays are offended. Please read Deuteronomy 22: 5-8. Please read about men laying with men and how un-natural that is, and will always be. These are perversions of the intended order of the Holy God Creator. Simple as that. So your argument is with God, Deuteronomy 22:5-8, and many other biblical versus where the Word of God is evident in its view of homosexuality. The most commonly quoted Bible verses are Leviticus 18:22 and Leviticus 20:13, which state that it is an abomination for a man to lie with another man as he would with a woman. In Romans 1:26-27, Apostle Paul says that homosexuality is contrary to God’s natural order and results from rejecting God. Additionally, 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 lists homosexuality as one of the sins that will prevent someone from entering the Kingdom of God.

        The comment about illegal aliens does not apply since this article is about persons being qualified for the POTUS and Obama already broke that alien mold! :>)

          It’s not good to blame God for your issues, or to fool mother nature. In almost every country, in many species, being gay seems to be God’s will. Otherwise, there would be no musicals……

          Just funning since as I have said, this just does not seem to fit your persona and I am pretty sure your actions don’t match your feelings/words. Then again, I have a few peccadillos like this myself.

          • Tom

            I am not “blaming God” as you say. I am saying I have a very healthy respect for what God says! Big difference! You show that you do not have the spiritual fortitude to admiit when you are being obedient to a superior power and authority. But then again, as you said, you do not care about God. But that is for you and God to wrestle with. Jesus even says, “If you love me, you will obey all that I have spoken to you.”. So you see, obedience is love. When you obey your wife, are you blaming her for what you do or are you loving her for what you do. Same coin, different sides. I am heads and you are tails. :>)

            Species in nature. Ok, I am a nature lover. All around me I see male and female, mostly dogs, birds and squirrels. I am going to say what you say to Larry, give me examples! And I will ask you overall, are there more hetero species or homo species? I think you know the answer to both questions will favor my view, but you would rather tote the sick party line on homosexuality, like I said, your butt, your choice – I thank the pro-abortion folks for this saying. But I am not sure if you mean homosexual (meaning preference for same sex) or if you actually are talking about the term “hermaphrodite” which means “having both sex organs” such as in slugs and other lower life forms. These are life forms that donate to eachother from their appropriate resources. Are you calling homosexual humans slugs? But humans do not have both sex organs like slugs.

            I think my actions and words on homosexuality have been very consistent. Tell me one time where I said homosexuality was ok? You will not find any! I have said we should be compassionate towards human beings, including homosexuals because it is not right to hurt any human. I have said I have no problem drinking a beer with a human practicing homosexuality as long as he does not take my association as willful approval of the homosexual practice. What I speak of here is homosexuality – the practice, not the people trapped in such an abomination. Big difference! Again, your arguments are with God, I am simply being obedient because that is one of the definitions of love.

          • frank stetson

            God says it bad, you say Godophobic, therefore you blame God. IF God did not say bad, you would be OK with it. Sure sounds like you blame God. errr, phobia is fear of things; anything. Not just gay people although your statement pretty much says you are homophobic.

            “But when the government starts forcing knowledge of their perversion be taught in schools and libraries, and requires all of us to accept them and their pronouns” Really, where are they teaching, on a forced basis, gay perversion? And pronouns, you are afraid of pronouns?

            And you expect the wrath of God if we allow school age kids to understand the gay life? No different than understanding the Mormon life? Or the sex life of Trump we are about to be abominated with?

            I can play the Bible game all day long, why bother? Bottom line is I can show you chapter and verse things in the Bible you just ignore. For some reason, this one has struck home to you and I still find that odd against your other writings. But you are consistent.

            I just can’t imagine Jesus turning the gays away. Never will.

            Speaking of gardens and gays, I had a zucchini mate with a cantaloupe, was that a perversion in God’s eyes and does God have eyes. I mean impotent, all knowing, aren’t eyes kinda meaningless? But my real problem was what did I have: a zuccolope or a cantelini? Whatever it was, it was not tasty.

            Had my first in-house table-top tomato last night, that was tasty!
