Several Republicans have called on President Joe Biden to take a cognitive test because he believes his “mental decline” has “become more pronounced.”
About 40 GOP members of Congress want Biden, 79, to follow the example set by his predecessor, former President Donald Trump, as recent polls increasingly show that more Americans are unsure about Biden’s mental health for the presidency.
Former Texas White House Physician Rep. Led by Ronnie Jackson, 37 other Republican colleagues signed a letter to Biden on Tuesday stating that they were “concerned” about his “current state of consciousness.”
“My colleagues and I are again asking President Biden to immediately go through a formal cognitive screening test, such as the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MOCA),” Jackson said.
Jackson added, “As a former physician to the three presidents of the United States, I know what it takes mentally and physically to carry out the duties of commander-in-chief and head of state.” “Joe Biden is constantly proving to me and to the world that something is not right. The American people deserve absolute confidence in their president’s intellectual capacity. “
The Texas Republican said that for Biden, “cognitive testing would be an important first step” to reassure concerned Americans that he was fit for the office or that he could “detect and properly treat symptoms of various cognitive impairments. Alzheimer’s, vascular dementia, Parkinson’s, or Parkinson’s.” . “
“It’s not a partisan issue. When I talked to President Trump about taking a cognitive test, he was interested in reassuring the American people and putting fake news stories to bed,” Jackson wrote. “Why wouldn’t President Biden do the same?”
“We can only assume the worst if he does not submit to the same criteria that his own party claimed in the last administration,” he added. “Example set.”
In their letter, lawmakers said they “believe that, regardless of gender, age or political party, all presidents should follow the example set by former President Trump’s documents and demonstrate proper mental capacity.”
“When you took your annual physical exam on November 19, 2021, you either didn’t face a cognitive test or those results were withheld from the public,” the group of Republicans continued. They added that while physically cleansing current White House physician Biden, GOP lawmakers wrote that they were “concerned about your mental capacity.”
“The Alzheimer’s Association lists ‘mood and personality changes’, with more ‘easily upsetting’ being one of the ten signs of mental decline,” they wrote. “You showed this kind of mood swings during the cabinet meeting on January 24, 2022, when you clearly didn’t know that your microphone was on after your opening remarks and you called a White House reporter ‘Ab’s stupid boy.’ He was responding to a question on inflation.
Jackson said he believes Biden is showing signs of cognitive decline and should be examined for possibilities.
“I think he’s proving every day that something is happening,” he told Fox News in July.
“You don’t have to be a therapist to see this behavior and see what’s happening,” he added. “She is not getting well at the moment.”
