According to Rep. Ronny Jackson, who was the former White House physician for both former President Donald Trump and Barack Obama, the people of our great nation need to have an objective assessment of President Joe Biden’s cognitive abilities, especially after his performance at last week’s G-7 summit, because he believes these issues are going to get worse.
“He’s always made gaffes, but these are really different right now,” the Texas Republican stated during an apperance on Newsmax’s “Wake Up America.” “He seems confused about where he’s at and what he’s doing.”
While he was in Europe last week, Biden “didn’t look like he was in control … he’s not inspiring confidence to our allies and he’s sending the wrong message to our adversaries,” Jackson went on to add.
When former President Donald Trump was in office, Jackson officially administered a cognitive screening test to him after liberals raised concerns over some of his actions. He then went on to state on Monday that the former president got a perfect score on the test, getting a “30 out of 30” on the test which examines folks for signs of early cognitive decline.
The test isn’t a “detailed, aggressive cognitive assessment,” but a “screening tool,” that is much like other screenings done for cancer or heart disease during a physical, said Jackson.advertisement — content continues below
The lawmaker also said he thought it was “concerning” when Biden forgot Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin’s name while introducing him during his announcement about him, and “forgot the name of the Pentagon.”
“I think that raises a lot of red flags,” Jackson went on to say. “I think these things are going to continue to get worse. He’s working in a very protected environment right now. They’re only rolling him out on certain days when I think he has good days. They’re giving him prescreened questions from the press, on who to call on and giving him talking points for each of the questions, and even then, he’s struggling.”
And with the G-7, Biden’s weaknesses were exposed on a world stage, which is “unfortunate” for the United States, said Jackson.
“We’re being tested every day” by Russia, China, and Iran, Jackson said, adding, “we are not inspiring the confidence in our allies and we’re sending the wrong message.”
“We’re not passing the tests that are being put before us,” he continued.
Jackson then went on to explain that he believes Democrats are going to start demanding some answers concerning Biden’s capabilities as the months tick by.
“I would say, just stand by,” the congressman said. “I’ll come back on your show in the next 12 months or so and we’ll talk about it again because it won’t just be me talking about it. It’ll be Democrats talking about it because this is going to get worse, not better.”
