Former White House doctor Ronny Jackson is pushing back hard on rumors that President Donald Trump has been anything less than perfectly healthy, saying it’s an attempt to cover for “cognitively compromised” Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.
In a video posted on Twitter, Jackson said he was “disgusted and horrified” by the attempts to make it look like Trump had a serious health condition when he visited Walter Reed Medical Center last fall.
Covering for Biden
The LIES about @realDonaldTrump‘s health are DISGUSTING.
Here’s the truth: As the President’s doctor, I knew about this trip WEEKS in advance & it had NOTHING to do with his brain or heart.@CNN is using this as a distraction to cover for the cognitively compromised Joe Biden. pic.twitter.com/n1buYx4Lx6

Jackson accused CNN and others in the media of spreading rumors to “defer and distract from the obvious mental, physical, and cognitive issues with former Vice President Joe Biden who is now their nominee for president.”
Jackson: Trump’s visit was routine
According to Jackson, Trump’s November visit to Walter Reed was “part of a routine, planned preventative medicine workup to keep him healthy as president.”
Jackson also said in the video that Trump is in the top 10% of men his age in heart health and that he expects him not only to finish his first term healthy, but to be healthy enough to be president for four more years.
The remarks came in response to CNN medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta’s remarks on a forthcoming book that claims Vice President Mike Pence was put on standby ahead of Trump’s unscheduled visit. Pence said Tuesday that he does not remember being told he was on standby at the time, but noted that he is “always on standby” due to the nature of the position.
CNN speculates on Trump’s health, but what about Biden’s?
“This was an unusual visit,” Gupta said, noting that, according to the book, some at Walter Reed were not notified that Trump was coming and that the attending physician rode with him to the medical center.
Even Gupta had to admit, however, that there was no way to prove that the book’s allegations were true or to know what had happened. “Who knows,” Gupta said. “We don’t know, and frankly, there’s no requirement for them to disclose that, either.”
The real mystery is being ignored by CNN, however. What exactly is Biden’s mental condition right now?
His decline becomes more apparent every time he leaves his basement, and he is obviously unfit to take on the leadership of the United States and the free world, no matter what the Democrat party wants you to believe.
