ABC News

Joe Biden says there's no need for him to take a formal cognitive test to prove his abilities to lead the nation ... claiming his involvement in daily world issues should be enough to show he's up for the gig a second time around.

In a full ABC special Friday, Biden fought hard to defend himself from his rough June 27 debate performance ... explaining to George Stephanopoulos he was just down with a serious bout of cold -- so bad he took a COVID test.

ABC News

While he says he didn't end up having COVID, Joe insisted exhaustion also played a part in his performance. He also admitted he didn't listen to his instincts in terms of preparing -- so looks like a variety of things contributed to his bad night.

Marlon Wayans is letting the robbers who targeted his L.A. area home last week know he was the wrong person to steal from 'cause he "doesn't own s***" -- this after TMZ broke the story on the burglary.

The actor broke his silence over the robbery on his IG ... telling his concerned followers in a video the thieves didn't really get their hands on much because he didn't have many valuable items.

Marlon explained, "The most valuable thing in my house is my house. So, unless you're gonna put that sh** on a truck and drag it away, then, yeah, man, you did well, but I don't own sh**."



Danny Trejo says he was provoked into a brawling during the Fourth of July incident ... and insists race played a significant role in why he and his friend were targeted.

Previous video we shared of the brawl showed Danny throwing the first punch -- but the actor tells us he was just reacting to a guy who grabbed him first. Plus, he adds someone mentioned it was acid, not water thrown at him ... which made him jump out of the car fast.

Former Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan Says Kamala Harris Should Be Prez Nominee ... Trump Loves The Idea

Kamala Harris is currently the top choice among fellow democrats to replace Joe Biden at the head of the ticket if he bows out of the presidential race -- and there's been a recent shift within the party to try to make that happen -- yet Donald Trump couldn't be happier with that possible scenario, TMZ has learned.

Former Democratic Ohio Congressman Tim Ryan tells TMZ ... the American people are realizing it's not realistic to move forward with President Biden after the commander-in-chief's disastrous June 27 debate against Trump -- his Republican rival. Instead, many dems are beginning to recognize that Kamala is their path forward.

"She is the only candidate [because] she is VP and on the ticket with him that will inherit his war chest and campaign infrastructure," according to Ryan, who lost reelection to J.D. Vance in 2020 after more than 20 years in office.
