It was recently revealed that President Joe Biden had an operation to have a cancerous lesion removed, raising additional questions concerning the elderly president's health.
Republican Texas Rep. Ronny Jackson, a former White House doctor under former Presidents Donald Trump and Barack Obama, weighed in with his overall assessment of the news of the cancer lesions being removed.
"I wonder about the conversation about his capacity," Sunday Morning Futures host Maria Bartiromo said to Jackson. "You have been talking about the president’s cognitive abilities being a national security risk. Tell us more."
Jackson, one of Biden's most vocal -- by far -- critics regarding the president's seemingly diminished cognitive capacity, held nothing back as he excoriated the president and the White House.
"He’s what needs to be removed, not the lesion they found. But this is just another effort from his physician and from his medical team to distract. They’re going to talk about this. They gave us a bunch of useless information about his cholesterol and stuff that no one cares about," Jackson said.

He added: "All we care about in this country with regards to President Biden — 80 years old, who’s got some obvious cognitive issues — is a cognitive assessment of some sort. We want something on the record to prove to us he’s cognitively capable of doing this job, and it’s almost a moot point at this stage, because we all know he’s not."
On Monday, Jackson laid out why he believes Biden's cognitive issues pose a national security threat.
"I've seen firsthand world leaders laugh at and MOCK Biden's cognitive abilities. It's become a national security THREAT to have this man in charge of our country. He has NO IDEA what is going on. America is being HUMILIATED!!" Jackson tweeted with the video.

The president had the basal cell carcinoma removed from his chest on Feb. 16. His doctor reported that the area was healing "nicely" and indicated that there were no other issues or concerns, the Associated Press reported.
A statement with further detail was released by the White House physician.

As Biden ages, there's no telling what could be next. The American people, at the very least, deserve a president who is healthy and alert enough to watch over the United States.
