White House Physician for Obama and Trump criticizes Biden’s physical and mental health

Ronny Jackson, who served as the White House physician to former Presidents Barack Obama and Donald Trump, suggested something was off about Joe Biden after the President’s fall last week. 

In a tweet, Jackson wrote, “I served as White House physician under THREE Presidents. I’ve seen what it takes physically AND mentally to do the job. I can tell you right now that the way Biden is hiding from the public is a MAJOR red flag. Something’s not right!” Jackson started as a physician to the president in July 2013. He served in the position until March 29, 2018. Jackson served as WHMU director from March 2010 through December 2014 and as the first chief medical advisor to the president from February 2019 until December 2019. He later ran as a Republican in the 13th Congressional District of Texas in this last election cycle, winning the seat.

Jackson’s tweet comes after Biden fell three times while trying to walk up the steps to Air Force One last week. On Friday, in a discussion with Fox News host Tucker Carlson, Dr. Mark Siegel said, “Notice when President Biden runs up the stairs of Air Force One, and last year, of course, he was mocking President Trump going down a ramp when he was at West Point. Now he’s saying I’m a runner. Well, he actually isn’t a runner anymore, by the way, but he slips several times on that ramp.”

Siegel continued: “And I have a question, could he have had a misstep? Could it be the wind the way the White House is saying? Could it be related to his broken foot last year and the boot he wore? Or, could it be a gait problem related to a cognitive problem? I think the American people have the right to know the answer to that. And you know, when I was down at the White House, and you sent me down there in July, President Trump brought up this issue of sharpness, of cognition, as being necessary for a president… But what about the real question about cognition about sharpness to be president? And I think that that’s an issue of great concern here.”

“And I’m not his doctor, and I’ve never examined him, but I’m not the only one that’s raising this question about him not having press conferences, about how just yesterday he was calling Vice President Harris, ‘President Harris,’ I mean, that he’s done several times,” Siegel added. “That could be a Freudian slip. Or it could be something worse, something neurologic, something cognitive.” Though this incident and other recent gaffes have led right-wing commentators to question Biden’s fitness for the presidency, the White House claims that he is “100% fine” following the fall, which they attributed to heavy winds.
