Former White House doctor not surprised by special counsel's findings

February 12, 2024

Last week, Special Counsel Robert Hur cited President Joe Biden declining mental prowess when explaining his decision not to prosecute the president for mishandling classified documents.

While Democrats were outraged by Hur's report, former White House physician Ronny Jackson told Fox News he wasn't surprised by what the special counsel had to say.  

"This man is not cognitively fit to be our president"

"It validates what most of us have known," said Jackson, who served as White House physician under Presidents George W. Bush, Barack Obama, and Donald Trump before getting elected to Congress.

"I've been saying since he was candidate Joe Biden that this man is not cognitively fit to be our president, our commander in chief and our head of state. I've been saying that over and over," Jackson explained.

The Texas Republican recalled how he had "watched the man every day, you know, in and around the West Wing for eight years when he was vice president," adding, "There's a drastic, drastic difference between then and now."

"Go back and look at the videos from whenever he was first vice president and compare them to now. It's not even the same person," Jackson stressed.

Hur: Biden could not recall when his son had died

"He's got some serious issues. I've been saying that for a long time. Now the report says that — the special counsel report came out and said exactly that," Jackson continued.

"That was a special counsel appointed by the Biden DOJ, and they're saying the same thing that I and many Americans have been saying for a long time now," he insisted.

Fox News quoted Hur as stating, "In his interview with our office, Mr. Biden's memory was worse. He did not remember, even within several years, when his son Beau died."

"And his memory appeared hazy when describing the Afghanistan debate that was once so important to him," Hur stated.

The special counsel went on to assert that Biden was unable to remember exactly when he assumed the office of vice president as well when his term came to an end.

President mixed up leaders of Mexico and Egypt

For his part, the president attempted to push back against Hur's findings by holding a press conference shortly after the special counsel's report was released.

However, that effort was somewhat undermined when Biden at one point mixed up the presidents of Egypt and Mexico.
