Ronny Jackson once again calls for Biden to undergo cognitive testing

U.S. Rep. Ronny Jackson has renewed calls for President Joe Biden to undergo cognitive testing.

As the latest evidence of mental decline, Jackson cited the 79-year-old president’s sarcastic response when a Fox News reporter asked at the end of a brief interaction with the press pool two weeks ago whether inflation is a political liability.
“No, it’s a great asset,” Biden muttered. “More inflation. What a stupid son of a bitch.”

“The Alzheimer’s Association lists `changes in mood and personality,’ including being more `easily upset’” as one of 10 early signs of mental decline, Jackson wrote this week.

“As you may remember,” the Amarillo Republican added – insinuating forgetfulness, another sign of dementia – “Members of Congress sent you a letter on this issue in June of last year, to which you have not replied.”

The White House declined to respond to the letter, which was dated Tuesday.

The letter last June included 14 signatures from House Republicans.

The updated version was signed by three dozen, though only two of 10 Republican physicians in the House: Jackson, whose specialty is emergency medicine, and a urologist from North Carolina, Rep. Greg Murphy.

Trump regularly claimed during the 2020 campaign that Biden was senile. Jackson began echoing that during his own bid for Congress that fall.

The White House ignored Jackson’s previous letter, which also noted that the congressman had administered a standard cognition test to Trump a year into his term.

Jackson was then an active duty rear admiral and physician to the president. Obama named him to that post in 2013, seven years after he joined the White House medical unit.

Tuesday’s letter asserts that Biden owes the public assurance that he’s mentally fit to serve as commander in chief, citing a poll that found only 46% currently believe that he is.

The letter cites a Dec. 16 news conference with the White House COVID-19 response team: “You appeared to be unable to read the numbers in front of you. When attempting to announce the total number of the population who had received a booster shot, you said, `57… excuse me… 570… I don’t want to read it, I’m not sure I got the right number…' before being corrected by Dr. Anthony Fauci with the right statistic of 57 million.”

“This is not just a recent trend, as your mental decline and forgetfulness have become more apparent over the past two years. On the campaign trail, you often forgot the names of states that you were in for campaign rallies,” Jackson wrote.
