Former White House physician and current GOP congressman from Texas Dr. Ronny Jackson on Tuesday broke down the results of President Joe Biden’s recently completed physical in an interview with Newsmax TV.
In particular, Jackson lashed out at the report Biden’s physician, Dr. Kevin O’Connor, describing it as “six pages of nothing.”
In response to Newsmax TV’s “Wake Up America” host Rob Finnerty, who asked the Texas lawmaker if he was “surprised if anything was missing” from the exam report, Jackson replied there was “a lot missing.”
“There was a lot missing, Rob. Honestly there was six pages of stuff that most people just don’t care about. I mean, Dr. O’Conner spent six pages addressing an occasional cough and some stiffness and things like that, when the elephant in the room is the president’s cognitive ability,” said the former White House physician under Presidents Obama and Trump.
“Over fifty percent of this country does not believe he is cognitively fit to be our commander in chief and our head of state, yet that wasn’t addressed anywhere in there,” Jackson added.
He went on to recount his physical of former President Trump and how many, especially those on the left, were most eager to hear about Trump’s mental acuity after frequently accusing him of being unfit and unstable.
“We set the precedent when we did President Trump’s physical, I did. The far-left and the mainstream media were relentless in their pursuit of me to do something to address not only his physical capabilities but his mental capabilities, which we did,” said Jackson.
“We did a cognitive test. As far as I’m concerned, we set the precedent and [Biden] should have had one done as well,” Jackson noted further.
