Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-TX), who was White House physician under both Obama and Trump administrations, wants President Biden to resign, saying he is “not cognitively capable of leading.”
“Biden doesn’t know what’s going on with Ukraine. He doesn’t know what’s going on with ANYTHING!” Jackson tweeted Friday. “He’s not cognitively capable of leading. He needs to RESIGN before our country suffers any more.”
Jackson, who has been pushing for Biden to take a cognitive test since last year, wrote Biden a letter requesting he undergo the exam because he fears he may have Alzheimer’s, Breitbart News reported. 37 Republican legislators signed the letter.
Breitbart News reported the next day that Jackson appeared on Fox Business Network’s Varney & Company and reiterated his belief that Biden is mentally unfit to be President.
Jackson said then: “I was at the White House during the Bush administration, the Obama administration, and the Trump administration. I was there for 14 years as the White House physician. I know exactly what it takes mentally and physically to do that job, and I think it’s on full display for everybody in the country and everybody in this world to see right now that President Biden does not have the cognitive ability to do his job right now. He’s continued to get worse and worse.”
The congressman referred to his previous calls for an assessment, noting that the precedent had been set when President Trump underwent cognitive testing in response to left-wing media outrage:
“I sent a letter back in June of last year requesting that he have a cognitive test done as part of his annual physical exam. This was before he had his physical exam done. He recently had his physical exam done; there was no mention whatsoever of any cognitive testing.”
“ And I remind everybody that we did this with President Trump. We set the precedent. We did this because of the outcry from the liberal media and from mainstream media, and from the far left that the president should have a cognitive test as part of his evaluation. The precedent has been set. “
“And President Biden needs to step up to the plate, he needs to have this test done, and they need to provide these results to the American people so we can have trust and confidence that he’s capable.”
In an article published on February 23, Jackson spoke with Fox News Digital about Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Biden’s mental acuity, Jackson said, “was on full display during the debacle in Afghanistan” and cautioned Biden is “going to get more Americans killed” and “ultimately get us in a war because of his lack of leadership.”
Jackson called for Biden’s resignation after a Politico/Morning Consult poll found that fewer than 25 percent of Americans strongly believed he was mentally fit, healthy, and stable, Breitbart News reported Tuesday. “The Politico poll sampled 2005 registered voters from March 4-6 with a margin of error of + / – 2 percentage points,” Breitbart News noted.
