Texas GOP Rep. Ronny Jackson, a former White House physician to Trump and Barack Obama is questioning President Joe Biden’s recent health report. Biden had a physical last week that claimed he is healthy and fit to serve.
White House physician Kevin O’Connor said: “President Biden remains a healthy, vigorous 80-year-old male who is fit to successfully execute the duties of the presidency.”
But Jackson is not convinced. He went on Fox News and said: “The majority of Americans can see that Biden’s mental health is in total decline, yet there is no transparency from the White House on what’s going on, if anything, to address this issue and his inability to do his job.
“Yesterday’s written physical exam report released by Biden’s physician, Kevin O’Connor, further confirms that this administration is still adamant about concealing the truth.
“Nowhere in the report was there mention of Biden’s deteriorating mental health.
“This is alarming, considering I have already sent three letters to the White House demanding that Biden receive a cognitive test and that the results be made public, all of which have been ignored.
“Everyone can see something is wrong — the cover-up needs to end.”
Barack Obama is not happy with Jackson’s behavior as the two were close in the White House.
In his 2022 memoir, Jackson said he received a “scathing” email from Obama for questioning Biden’s mental state.
Obama wrote to Jackson:
“I have made a point of not commenting on your service in my successor’s administration and have always spoken highly of you both in public and in private.
“You always served me and my family well, and I have considered you not only a fine doctor and service member but also a friend.
“That’s why I have to express my disappointment at the cheap shot you took at Joe Biden via Twitter.
“It was unprofessional and beneath the office that you once held.
“It was also disrespectful to me and the many friends you had in our administration.
“You were the personal physician to the President of the United States as well as an admiral in the U.S. Navy.
“I expect better, and I hope upon reflection that you will expect more of yourself in the future,” Obama wrote.
WHY ON EARTH did Biden not get a cognitive exam? Trump had one, why not him? Biden’s ability to think and reason is GONE! He SHOULD NOT be President!!

We need to know the FULL RESULTS of Biden's physical exam. What medications is he taking? Will there be a cognitive exam? If any President has needed a cognitive assessment, it’s this one! He’s the most incompetent president in history. You DESERVE answers to these questions!! pic.twitter.com/2QkGGQoEfh
