The White House physician for Presidents Barack Obama and Donald Trump is once more sounding an alarm over what he sees as President Joe Biden’s deteriorating mental health capacities.
Rep Ronny Jackson (R-Texas), who stepped down as White House physician during the latter part of Trump’s term and successfully ran for a House seat in the Lone Star State, made his observation after Biden has come under fire from all corners for several remarks he made in recent days regarding the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine.
“Biden is unable to articulate the major foreign policy objectives of his administration,” Jackson tweeted this week. “Everytime [sic] he tries, the White House swoops in to ‘correct’ what he said. He has NO IDEA what’s going on. His cognitive decline is TOO MUCH. Time to RESIGN!”
“Is Joe Biden losing it? He’s always had ‘gaffes’ but what we’re seeing is something different – something WAY WORSE,” Jackson later added. “He’s LOST. This is dangerous. He needs a COGNITIVE EXAM immediately!”
Jackson has called for Biden to take a cognitive test like the one he administered to Trump since last year, but thus far, his calls have been ignored.
The Daily Wire adds:
Jackson, who now represents Texas’ 13th Congressional District, reported to the White House Medical Unit (WHMU) during the Bush era in 2006, but he did not start as physician to the president until July 2013, a position that he served in until March 28, 2018. Jackson served as WHMU director from March 2010 through December 2014. Jackson also served as the first chief medical advisor to the president from February 2019 until December 2019.
Jackson has previously criticized Biden’s mental fitness for the presidency with respect to the war in Europe, opining that Biden was “not fit to be our president right now.”
“The whole country is seeing his mental cognitive issues on display for over a year now, and there’s really no question in most people’s minds that there’s something going on with him, that he’s not cognitively the same as he used to be and, in my mind, not fit to be our president right now,” Jackson said during an interview.
“Every time he gets up and talks to the American people, it’s not just the American people that are watching him speak, it’s the whole world, and that’s part of what the problem is here. He looks tired, he looks weak, he looks confused, he’s incoherent, and it sends a message of weakness all over the world, and they’re seizing up on that,” he continued.
“He’s got 40 years of tape, you can go back and look at this man, so it’s not like we don’t have anything to compare it to,” Jackson said. “You can go back and look, he’s always made gaffes, he’s always made missteps, but never like this. This is something different. These aren’t gaffes…. This is something much more serious.”
He also noted that Biden’s mental fitness for office “was on full display during the debacle in Afghanistan” and that it could “get more Americans killed” and “ultimately get us in a war because of his lack of leadership.”
