Former President Barack Obama’s White House doctor is doubling down on his call to have Joe Biden take a cognitive test.
Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-TX), who served as the WH physician for presidents Donald Trump, Obama, and George W. Bush, made the call during an appearance on Fox News.
“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.
“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’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.
“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.”
“We should have strong leaders that are going to go out and lead.
“He cannot lead, he’s an ineffective leader.”
White House deputy press secretary Andrew Bates fired back in an email to Fox News that said:
“I honestly don’t care about Ronny Jackson’s ‘look at me’ routine.
“But if y’all get any mail from Nick Riviera please don’t be a stranger.”
Dr. Nick Riviera is a character on “The Simpsons” known for being a sham doctor.
Biden’s “address” to the country was a DISASTER. Slurring his speech. Mumbling his words. He BARELY could read off the teleprompter. He continues to be a cognitive MESS. We DESPERATELY need a change in the Oval Office. The world is watching and it is NOT good!

Kamala was an EMBARRASSMENT in Munich. She had NO IDEA what she was saying. How is it possible someone like her keeps failing upwards???

Jackson may want to test John Kerry too after he made an environmental plea to Putin to stop the invasion.
“I’m concerned about Ukraine because of the people of Ukraine and because of the principles that are at risk, in terms of international law and trying to change boundaries of international law by force.
“I thought we lived in a world that had said no to that kind of activity.
“And I hope diplomacy will win.
“But massive emissions consequences to the war – but equally importantly, you’re going to lose people’s focus, you’re going to lose certainly big country attention because they will be diverted and I think it could have a damaging impact.
“So, you know, I think hopefully President Putin would realize that in the northern part of his country, they used to live on 66% of the nation that was over frozen land.
“Now it’s thawing, and his infrastructure is at risk.
“And the people of Russia are at risk,” he said.
“And so I hope President Putin will help us to stay on track with respect to what we need to do for the climate.”
