Having sounded the alarm earlier this year about the cognitive status of President Joe Biden, former White House physician and now-Congressman Dr. Ronny Jackson (R-TX) said in no uncertain terms last week that the president’s conduct amid the Afghanistan crisis has removed all doubt about his unfitness to serve, as the Daily Wire reports.
Following remarks delivered by Biden on the deteriorating situation in Afghanistan, Jackson made his feelings on the president’s mental state know, taking to Twitter to say, “That was embarrassing. There is something so obviously wrong with Biden’s cognitive fitness it was hard to watch.”
Going even further to suggest that Biden’s condition is incompatible with the office of the presidency, Jackson declared, “He should NOT remain President for another SECOND. We deserve better – MUCH better.”
Expanding on his take on Friday afternoon, Jackson labeled Biden’s public performance “bizarre” and opined, “His cognitive decline is on full display, and the results have been disastrous. Our nation can’t take this ANY longer.”
This is not the first time Jackson has sounded the alarm about Biden’s decline, a fact he referenced during a Friday interview with Fox News’ Jesse Watters, explaining that he has been calling attention to the problem for over a year and a half, but to no avail.
“I hoped that [I] was wrong, but I’m not, Jackson said, “And we’re seeing it played out on the international stage right now. He’s destroying the reputation of this country. He’s getting Americans killed. There’s…American blood being shed in Afghanistan…”.
Indeed, Jackson has been highlighting his concerns about Biden’s cognitive status for months now, joining with Republican Rep. Jerry Carl (AL) earlier this year to demand that the president submit to testing to prove whether he is up to the challenge of leading this country.
Carl stated that the time that testing – of the sort undergone by former President Donald Trump during his time in office – was “the only way the American people can find out what is going on – because Biden is not running his office up there.”
Though Biden’s history of struggling while reading prepared speeches, displaying confusion in public settings, and referencing the likelihood that he will “get in trouble with staff” if he strays from his carefully crafted scripts have often led to speculation about his condition, recent missteps such as botching where, when, and in what branch of military service his own son served have only heightened suspicions that his status has worsened.
