The decade's most triggering comedy
Charlamagne Tha God, co-host of “The Breakfast Club,” praised Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley for pushing for age limits and mental competency tests for elected officials.
Haley’s push for age limits and mental competency tests comes after Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) had another episode last week where he froze in front of cameras while speaking to reporters.
During a Sunday interview on CBS News’ “Face The Nation,” Haley said: “I think there should be mental competency tests. And I don’t care if they’re for everybody 50 and older. I don’t care if they’re for the entire Congress.”
Haley also said, “They should also give a notice from the doctor that tells about their mental capacity.”
Charlamagne praised Haley on Tuesday for her position on the issue, saying: “Nikki is absolutely right. She ain’t say one damn thing wrong.”
“I’ll stop her when she stops telling the truth,” he continued. “We need term limits. And, you know, if you are going to stay in, you definitely need mental competency tests over the age of whatever.”
Co-host Tezlyn Figaro was also impressed by Haley, saying: “I like Nikki Haley. I like the fact that she made sure she included Democrats and Republicans in, you know, in her comments so that it was even across the board. And I just think she’s a smart lady and she’s also going up in the polls as well on the Republican side.”
“And we wouldn’t be having these conversations if there wasn’t an obvious cognitive decline,” Charlamagne added. “Folks aren’t just saying this because these people are older. It’s because it’s obvious something is wrong.”
