The minute Joe Biden stepped on the campaign trail, Republicans and Conservatives wondered if he was 100 percent fit to be President. Multiple public gaffes only added fuel to the fire.
It wasn’t enough to stop him from getting elected, though. And today, Democrats say there’s absolutely no evidence of impairment and Biden is in fine condition.
However, the former White House doctor vehemently disagrees.
In fact, he just made a few alarming statements that can’t be ignored.
Dr. Ronny Jackson has called for Biden to be tested before, suggesting the Democrat leader might have some cognitive and physical issues. And if true, it would mean he really shouldn’t be Commander-in-Chief.
Now, Dr. Jackson is doubling down on his stance, and he’s demanding that Biden submit to testing.
Basically, he says the American people are a little concerned, and the President should volunteer to get tested just to put everyone’s mind at ease. It would help quell the rumors that he was ailing, too.
From Fox News:
Dr. Ronny Jackson, the former White House physician, called on President Biden to immediately undergo a cognitive test so the commander-in-chief can prove to the American public sound mental capabilities.
‘He’s not physically or cognitively fit to be our president right now,’ Jackson added.
Jackson went on “Hannity” and said “we can’t sit on this any longer.” He specifically called out Biden’s “embarrassing” display in speaking to world leaders this past week.
The former White House physician isn’t the only one concerned about the President’s capacities, either.
All told, Jackson and 13 GOP members sent a letter to Biden pointing out examples of memory lapses and other confusion. This included forgetting the first line of the Declaration of Independence.
The letter was painfully clear in its accusation:
Unfortunately, your mental decline and forgetfulness have become more apparent over the past 18 months.
We encourage you to follow the example set by President Trump by undergoing a cognitive test as soon as possible and immediately making the results available for the American people.
For the record, Donald Trump submitted to the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MOCA) and scored a perfect 30 out of 30. That was when Dr. Jackson joked that Trump “might live to be 200 years old.”
As for Biden, a White House spokesperson said the President would undergo a medical checkup this year, and they’d inform the country of the results.
That might not be enough for Jackson and his colleagues, though.
They argue that there’s simply too much evidence to ignore at this point. President Biden doesn’t appear to be improving and in some ways, one could argue his public appearances have declined.
I would argue that the American people don’t have that confidence in President Biden.
Given the precedent set and Biden’s clear mental impairment, I believe it is past time he undergo a cognitive test.
Most Democrats continue to dismiss these allegations, but it’s difficult to hide the mistakes and stumbles POTUS has made in public.
It’s also important to recognize that he frequently needs notes during public appearances, and he typically sticks to previously approved reporters and questions (presumably so he won’t be taken off-guard).
And if he’s perfectly fine, he shouldn’t have any trouble with taking – and easily passing – any cognitive test. So maybe that’s the best idea for everyone.
