Former Presidents Barack Obama, Donald Trump, and his White House physician are asking President Joe Biden to take a cognitive test. He says it is becoming more obvious that something is “concerning”.
Rep. Ronny (R-TX), made these remarks in a Fox News interview published this weekend. He stated, “I think that he’s demonstrating each day that there is an ongoing thing.”
“You don’t need to be a physician to look at this behavior and see there’s something concerning happening,” Jackson said. “You can go back – there’s forty years of tape of this man – he’s always made gaffes and stuff but these are different, he’s confused; he’s disoriented.”
“We all know people who are 100-years old who basically are as sharp as a tack, and we know people who are in their mid-60’s that are having some cognitive difficulties…and I think he’s on that end of the spectrum,” Jackson continued. “He’s just not aging gracefully at this point. I’m just asking them, when you do the physical exam, include the cognitive assessment. As far as I’m concerned the standard precedent has been set and they need to follow and do the same.”
Following Biden’s fall on the stairs of Air Force One in March, Jackson tweeted: “I served as White House physician under THREE Presidents. I’ve seen what it takes physically AND mentally to do the job. I can tell you right now that the way Biden is hiding from the public is a MAJOR red flag. Something’s not right!”
One week later, Jackson attacked Biden for his first press conference as president. he claimed that the 46th president “struggled” to get through the conference, despite the fact he was following a strict protocol and reading prepared answers from the podium.
Jackson sent a letter to Biden last month in which he said, “Unfortunately, your mental decline and forgetfulness have become more apparent over the past eighteen months.” Jackson’s letter said that Biden struggled to remember things that “most school-age children could recite.”
