Why won’t Biden take a cognitive exam?
According to former White House Physician Ronny Jackson, the Biden administration is covering up for what is “obvious cognitive decline.”
Appearing on Newsmax, Jackson described Biden’s latest health report as “six pages of superficial fluff.”
“Honestly, there were six pages of stuff that most people just don’t care about,” Jackson said, adding “I mean, you know, Dr. O’Connor spent six pages addressing like an occasional cough and some stiffness and things like that when the elephant in the room was the president’s cognitive ability.”
Jackson continued, “Over 50% of this country does not believe he’s cognitively fit to be our Commander in Chief and our head of state, yet that wasn’t addressed anywhere in there.”
“We set the precedent when we did President Trump’s physical. I did,” Jackson explained, further noting “The far-Left and the mainstream media were relentless in their pursuit of me to do something to address not only his physical capabilities, but his mental capabilities, which we did — we did a cognitive test. As far as I’m concerned, we set the precedent. And he should have had one done as well.”
Jackson added that “if anyone needs a cognitive test, it’s this president that we have right now. And I was really surprised to see there wasn’t any mention of anything like that in there.”
The Texas Congressman emphasised that Biden’s team “know that if they gave him a cognitive test, that he would have failed miserably, and then they would have had to explain that away somehow.”
O’Connor’s report did not include a cognitive exam of the president, as several of his critics have said should be done. Siegel suggested that other tests to evaluate Biden’s health could “rule out” things that could potentially be associated with cognitive decline.
“If we’re looking into neurological causes for the gait change, I don’t think the way they characterize that in the physical is sufficient,” Siegel said. “I want more information. I want to know what the MRIs show, and I want to know what the nerve conduction EMG shows to rule out things that are more extensive, that by the way, can be associated with cognitive changes like mental status, like dementia.”
“This is not a fully characterized neurological assessment of somebody with a gait problem, and I want to know why,” Siegel added, noting that normal pressure hydrocephalus, a condition relating to fluid on the brain, is a “possibility” for certain medical issues. “That can be associated with cognitive loss.”
Back in July, Jackson predicted that Biden will be removed from office.
