Former White House physician Dr. Ronny Jackson is certain that President-elect Joe Biden doesn’t have the cognitive ability to be commander-in-chief.
“I’m pretty familiar with what it takes both physically and cognitively to do that job and what the demands of that job are,” Jackson said.
“As a citizen, not as a candidate running for Congress, but as a citizen of this country, I’ve watched Joe Biden on the campaign trail and I am concerned and convinced that he does not have the mental capacity, the cognitive ability, to serve as our commander-in-chief and our head of state,” he added.
Jackson served under former President George Bush and was the appointed physician to President Barack Obama, as well.
“I’m not trying to remotely diagnose him with anything. I’ve not accused him of having Alzheimer’s or anything of that nature,” he added.
“They’re not the typical gaffes. He routinely gets in the middle of a thought and then loses his train of thought and then he can’t recalibrate where he’s at. He’s actually having a lot of trouble recently articulating words,” Jackson continued.
“As a physician, I can tell you that’s a mechanism that folks that are having cognitive difficulties use to move on and to get out of a situation. This is a demanding job from a cognitive standpoint, you have to be locked on, you have to be articulate, you have to process lots and lots of information and multitask,” he added.
“And right now he’s having a really extreme time just focusing on the one task at hand that he has when he stands up in front of voters and tries to explain something,” Jackson concluded.
Jackson made similar comments last month, expressing concern about Biden’s mental state and saying he lacks the “cognitive ability” to be president.
“He is not up to the job,” Jackson told reporters during a conference call organized by the Trump campaign.
“I’ve watched Joe Biden on the campaign trail and I’m concerned that he does not have the mental capacity, the cognitive ability, to serve as our commander-in-chief. He routinely gets lost in the middle of a thought and can’t recalibrate,” he added.
“I never took care of Vice President Biden,” he stated. “I’m not trying to remotely diagnose him with anything. I’m saying it as a concerned citizen. We can all see… something’s going on here. He is having some extremely bad days. This is serious. We’re picking a commander-in-chief [who] has to be at the top of their game cognitively. And he’s really not.”
Biden’s gaffes are few and far between.
Biden has forgotten where he is, where he has been, and what he was saying on a consistent basis since the outset of his campaign last spring.
