Former WH Physician On The Truth About Joe Biden’s “Cognitive Tests”
(Tea Party 247) – Earlier this week, former Vice President and current Democratic Party presumed presidential nominee, Joe Biden, declared that he was undergoing frequent tests for his cognitive abilities as if the fact that a presidential candidate needs to undergo regular cognitive testing isn’t in itself rather disconcerting.
He said this, of course, in a clearly very flimsy attempt to put to bed well-founded concerns that his cognitive abilities are on the decline, as the elderly former veep can barely string a sentence together without some sort of gaffe–that is, if he even achieves coherence in the first place. Which is rare.
Former White House Physician Dr. Ronny Jackson, however, said this week that his campaign is likely preventing him from releasing the results of any cognitive assessments as it would be disastrous for his White House bid.
“I’m not comfortable with him being my president,” Jackson told The Kyle Olson Show this week.
“I think he’s got some cognitive issues,” he continued, adding that he was not diagnosing Biden and has not examined him.
“But as a concerned American who also happens to be a physician, I’m just going to say it’s concerning to me that he sometimes is not able to complete a sentence, not really know where he’s at or what he’s doing and we’ve seen that countless times now,” Jackson said.
While some age “more gracefully” than others, Jackson explained, “If he was going to be president someday, that window seems to have closed in my mind.”
Jackson served as White House Physician under both Obama and Trump and famously issued the Montreal Cognitive Assessment to President Trump in 2018 at the President’s request to refute criticism that he was mentally unfit for the job.
A simple comparison between Biden and Trump delivering comments or speaking with the press clearly demonstrates that it is Trump who is far more mentally spry at 74 years old. Biden, only three year’s Trump’s senior, behaves as one whose cognitive abilities have aged considerably more than the president’s.
“The President didn’t have anything to hide,” Jackson said of his consent to issue the assessment of Trump.
“I knew he was cognitively intact,” he explained, adding that he hadn’t been concerned that he’d find anything.
“It’s never been done for a president before,” Jackson said, “obviously no president has ever had any cognitive testing done.”
Jackson explained that he delivered the results to the White House Press Corps during a long briefing to a room packed with medical experts and correspondents.
“They were obviously there that day as assassins to bring me down and undermine the President’s physical,” he said.
It didn’t work, however, and Trump’s haters in the media can’t possibly address Trump’s mental fitness without inevitably being forced to comment on Biden’s.
Jackson thinks that Biden’s “crazy comments” certainly justify subjecting the presumed Democratic nominee to the same testing.
He pointed to Biden’s consistent brain freezes, confusion over where he is, and the gravity of the office he’s seeking as reasons why she should be subject to such tests.
“I want my President, my Commander-in-Chief, my head of state to be a little bit sharper mentally than Joe Biden currently is,” Jackson explained.
“Maybe he would have been fine ten years ago, but I legitimately think Joe Biden’s window … has closed,” he told The Kyle Olson Show.
“I think that he’s old enough now that he’s having cognitive difficulties and that just happens. It’s part of growing old,” Jackson said.
He also refuted a claim from Biden that he outshines Trump cognitively (not that you needed a doctor to tell you that this is a hilariously false statement).
“If (Trump) goes head-to-head with Joe Biden cognitively, there just wouldn’t be much of a comparison. It would be very one-sided,” Jackson said.
He explained that he believes Biden hasn’t been in public very much lately because of this and that the campaign will likely try to get him out of the debates they’ve agreed upon.
“They cannot afford to put Joe Biden on the stage side-by-side with President Trump. It will be an unmitigated disaster for their party,” Jackson said.
