U.S. Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-TX) — who served as chief White House physician under Presidents Barrack Obama and Donald trump — sounded the alarm on Biden’s cognitive decline and called on the president to step down during a recent interview.
President Biden’s age has topped the list of concerns of voters across party lines, polling has consistently found. Biden, who is already the oldest president in American history, will be 82 if he wins re-election and will have turned 86 by the end of a hypothetical second term.
One recent CNN survey of likely New Hampshire primary voters found that 56 percent of respondents cited Biden’s age as their primary concern.
On Tuesday, Fox News host Steve Doocy asked Rep. Jackson about consistent concerns over the presidents age and health. “You know, I’ve been saying for quite some time now when he was candidate Joe Biden that I didn’t think that he had the cognitive ability to do the job,” Jackson said. “And I’ll tell you what you can do, I did this the other day. I went back and I looked at some video from him when he was running for president last time and compared it to video from now. And he has degenerated just quite a bit over the last three years.”
“It’s just incredible to see the difference. And I think now the Democrats are starting to get to the point where they can’t deny it. I mean, the mainstream media has been talking about it for the last six months or so,” he continued. “But we can’t we can’t endure this anymore. This is just you know, he’s got he’s got these people that surround him that are inappropriate and encouraging him to continue to run because it builds up, you know, who they are and what they do.”
Doocy followed up by asking whether members of Biden’s family should intervene and tell him to step down before his cognitive ability declines further.
“Well, they absolutely should,” Jackson answered. “I took care of three presidents now. President Trump was my patient as well. And, you know, this is a demanding job.”
“I mean, you have to be completely on your game 24-7, 365. And now he’s going to be confronted with wars overseas. And everything going on in our economy, on our border, while he’s trying to campaign for president. He can’t do this at all.”
