For quite a while now, we, as American citizens, have seen some rather disturbing signs from presidential candidate Joe Biden – signs that give us pause as to whether he would be a good fit for the Oval Office at this point in his life. However, few of us are doctors who have much experience either with diagnosing the physical body or knowing what is required of a president’s mind.
Lucky for us, Ronny Jackson is.
If his name sounds familiar, it is likely because Jackson is the former physician of both Biden’s former boss, President Barack Obama, and the current sitting president, Donald Trump. In addition, Jackson worked in the White House during the George W. Bush administration.
To say the man is experienced in the medical profession as well as what is required of those working our highest offices is just about the understatement of the year. In fact, few could likely understand the White House’s demands and what it does to the human body and mind more intimately.
So what does Dr. Jackson think of Biden, and what seems to be the slow loss of his mind?
Well, for that, I give you a recent conference call organized by the Trump reelection campaign in which the good doctor was invited to share his opinion.
And to put it rather plainly, “He is not up to the job,” Jackson said.
He continued, “I’ve watched Joe Biden on the campaign trail and I’m concerned that he does not have the mental capacity, the cognitive ability, to serve as our commander in chief,” according to the Washington Times. And the doctor explained himself by saying, “He routinely gets lost in the middle of a thought and can’t recalibrate.”
Jackson made sure to say that he was not trying to make a “medical assessment. I never took care of Vice President Biden. I’m not trying to remotely diagnose him with anything. I’m saying it as a concerned citizen.”
He knows that it’s nearly impossible to accurately diagnose the man from afar without physically looking him over and assessing his mind. However, he remarks that there are definitely signs that something is wrong, as we all have noticed.
“We can all see… something’s going on here. He is having some extremely bad days. This is serious. We’re picking a commander in chief (who) has to be at the top of their game cognitively. And he’s really not.”
Indeed, it would be impossible to not notice the problems his mind has with keeping up and staying on task at this point in his campaign.
Take one of his recent “extremely bad days,” for example.
On Monday, before traveling to Ohio to speak with some auto workers, he was caught by some members of the media asked a few questions, mostly about the Barrett confirmation.
In one answer, the former vice president mentioned Mitt Romney but failed to remember his name. Instead, he referred to the man who ran against him in 2012 as “that senator who was a Mormon, the governor.” Mind you, Romney is no run of the mill senator from some odd state with no connection to Biden.
And this isn’t the first time he has appeared to forget the name of who he’s talking about. You know, like that unforgettable time he failed to remember even Barack Obama’s name and had to resort to calling him “my boss.” Hell, he even got his wife and sister mixed up once.
But that was by far the worst part of his day.
Later, while actually speaking to those auto workers, he told them he was running for the US Senate, which he also said before in recent months. I’m sorry, but a candidate for the White House should have no problem remembering what office they are actually running for.
And former Navy veteran and doctor Jackson agrees.
He said, “I know exactly what’s required to sit in that seat at the Resolute Desk and make those decisions, both mentally and physically and something’s going on here. He’s not prepared for that.”
Jackson continued by insinuating that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s recent discussions on using the 25th Amendment were likely not so much about President Trump as they are about Biden. Should Biden win, and it becomes even more evident that he can’t handle the job, Dems will need a way out. And so Pelosi is readying her troops for that possibility.
