Observers have long complained that 78-year-old President Joe Biden has been showing signs of cognitive decline, and the problems seems to have gotten worse since he has taken office.
Those facts are embarrassing to many Democrats, and earlier this week one doctor says that former President Barack Obama lashed out at him for daring to notice them.
Republican Rep. Ronnie Jackson formerly served as White House physician under Presidents George W. Bush, Barack Obama, and Donald Trump.
Jackson says Obama accused him of “betrayal”
According to the Daily Wire, he recently appeared on a podcast with fellow GOP Rep. Jim Banks and alleged that former President Obama sent an angry letter in response to comments that Jackson has made concerning Biden’s mental state.
“He just tore me up,” Jackson recalled to Banks. “An entire page about how disappointed he was in me and how it’s beneath me as a physician and beneath me as an officer in the military to be attacking Joe Biden like this.”
“And it was a betrayal of the trust that he and his administration put in me and he was so disappointed in me and yada, yada,” Jackson went on to explain.
Yet despite allegedly being on the receiving end of harsh words from Obama, the Texas congressman showed no sign of backing away from the issue.
Jackson went on to point out that the current commander in chief is “78 years old and you can see it” while noting some of the symptoms that he exhibits.
Former White House doctor claims “Joe Biden is incapable” of being president
“You don’t need to be a physician to look at him and to look at his behavior and some of the other stuff, just the way he shuffles away, stares off into space,” the conservative lawmaker explained.
“I know what that job entails, both physically and mentally, and how demanding it is. And I can tell you right now, I’m 100% sure that Joe Biden is incapable of doing that job.”
This is not the first time Jackson has drawn attention to the president’s apparent cognitive shortcomings. He reacted to a speech Biden gave in August with a tweet that called the performance “embarrassing.”
“There is something so obviously wrong with Biden’s cognitive fitness it was hard to watch,” Jackson continued. “He should NOT remain President for another SECOND. We deserve better – MUCH better.”
