(JustPatriots.com)- Former White House doctor, Congressman Ronny Jackson (R-TX) has called for President Joe Biden to undergo a cognitive test.
Jackson, who served as White House doctor for President Barack Obama and, for a short time, President Donald Trump, said the 79-year-old Biden is “not fit to be our president right now.”
He said Biden’s cognitive issues have been on display “for over a year now” and he believes the American people are beginning to suspect there is “something going on with him.”
“Suspect?” That’s putting it mildly.
Jackson said that in Biden’s public appearances, the president seems tired, weak, confused, and incoherent. He expressed concern that Biden is sending a “message of weakness all over the world” that America’s enemies are exploiting.
And while Jackson conceded that Joe Biden has “always been prone to gaffes,” what’s happening now is “something different.” He warns that Biden’s cognitive decline is “going to get more Americans killed.”
Several Republican lawmakers have also suggested that, given the president’s advanced age and noticeable decline, Biden should be required to undergo an annual cognitive test along with his annual physical.
Meanwhile, according to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll conducted last week, a clear majority of Americans believe Joe Biden is not mentally fit to serve as commander-in-chief.
The poll, released over the weekend, showed only 36 percent of respondents believe Joe Biden is a strong leader. The vast majority, 59 percent, believe he is not.
When asked specifically about Biden’s “mental sharpness,” 54 percent of respondents said they do not believe Biden is mentally sharp enough to serve as president, while only 40 percent think he is.
That’s quite a switch from May of 2020 when Biden was only a candidate. At that time, 51 percent said he was mentally sharp while only 43 percent said he was not.
Of course, that was before inflation skyrocketed, consumer prices increased, the bugled withdrawal from Afghanistan, and the current crisis in Ukraine. Now that Americans have seen President Biden in action as all these disasters unfold, it is hardly surprising the majority know he isn’t up to the job.
