WASHINGTON, DC: Former White House physician to Presidents Barack Obama and Donald Trump, Ronny Jackson, has expressed concerns about the current president’s health and mental capacity as Joe Biden turns 81 on Monday, November 20.
The 81-year-old US president’s competence has come under scrutiny after several public falls, mistakes and verbal gaffes. Representative Jackson of Texas said on “FOX & Friends” that the growing concerns, including from the left, are justified.

Joe Biden does NOT have the cognitive capacity to be our commander in chief. His decline since entering the White House is UNCERTAIN. We can’t tolerate this for another 4 years. These are dangerous times and Biden SHOULD NOT be in the White House!! pic.twitter.com/9m1p9DcPAf

Ronny Jackson highlights how Joe Biden has ‘degenerated’
After pardoning two turkeys during an annual White House ritual before Thanksgiving, Biden mistook Britney Spears for Taylor Swift, The Express reports.
Adding fuel to the fire, Jackson said during a call with FOX News: “I said for quite some time when he was candidate Joe Biden that I didn’t think he had the cognitive capacity to do the job. »

The veteran continued by saying he believes Biden has “degenerated” over the past three years.
Jackson added: “He is surrounded by people who unreasonably encourage him to continue running because it shapes who they are and what they do. But our border, our wars abroad, our economy, you know, right now it’s just a disaster.”

“And he just can’t do the job. And every day it becomes obvious that he is no longer capable of doing this job,” Jackson said.

Prominent political commentators such as HBO host Bill Maher and former Obama adviser David Axelrod have expressed doubts in recent weeks about Biden’s ability to run for re-election.
Based on his time as White House physician, Jackson argued that Biden could not handle the demands of becoming president.
“He can’t do this at all,” Jackson said, telling host Steve Doocy that Biden is incapable of performing the duties of the presidency and seeking re-election in his current state.
Jackson previously stated, “I think his lack of physical ability and his physical decline are now starting to highlight the cognitive decline that we’ve been seeing for so long,” according to FOX News.
“This package is not being sold around the world and it is becoming a national security issue for us. We have to do something about this.”
Jackson, who supports Trump’s 2024 presidential campaign, made his remarks after Texas Gov. Greg Abbott appeared alongside the 45th president at a rally and endorsed him.
I was honored to be asked by MY PRESIDENT Donald Trump to bid for the presidency on his behalf today in Texas. I’m also honored to be joined by two of his biggest supporters and my good friends @KenPaxtonTX and @MillerForTexas. We’re going to win big in Texas and we’re going to… pic.twitter.com/f0pH4eJ6pS

Internet users slam Ronny Jackson for claiming Joe Biden lacks ‘cognitive ability’
Jackson’s claim that President Biden lacks the “cognitive capacity” to serve another term has gone viral. Internet users then took to X (formerly Twitter) to criticize the former White House doctor.
One X user criticized him and said: “Biden is doing fine. On the other hand, you shouldn’t be anywhere near patients.
A second laughed and wrote: “Trump is no better,” while a third added: “Clearly you haven’t been listening to Trump lately.”
“You ran for Congress because anyone can do it and it doesn’t require a random urine test,” another user criticized.
Another laughed and said: “Get 2 bottles of Ambien Ronny and wash them down with your favorite vodka and martini.”
Another explained: “Who can take you seriously Ronnie if: 1) You didn’t evaluate Biden in person and just watched the video. 2) When you were Trump’s doctor, you collapsed during an overseas trip with Trump and his entourage when they needed you and you were unavailable.”
Biden is doing well. On the other hand, you shouldn’t be around patients.

Who can take you seriously, Ronnie, if:
1) You didn’t evaluate Biden personally, you just watched the video.
2) When you were Trump’s doctor, you collapsed during an overseas trip with Trump and his entourage when they needed you and you were unavailable.
