The man who served as the White House doctor for former Presidents Obama and Donald Trump says that Biden needs to be removed from the White House.
Ronny Jackson, who is now a Republican United States representative, went off on Joe Biden and his cognitive abilities in a series of tweets last week, The Daily Wire reported.
“That was embarrassing. There is something so obviously wrong with Biden’s cognitive fitness it was hard to watch,” he said after watching Biden’s speech on Thursday. “He should NOT remain President for another SECOND. We deserve better – MUCH better.”
“Biden’s speech yesterday was bizarre,” he said on Friday. “His cognitive decline is on full display, and the results have been disastrous. Our nation can’t take this ANY longer.”
And he took it further during an interview with Fox News host Jesse Waters, saying that he has been issuing this warning for a year.
“And of course, I hoped that was wrong, but I’m not,” he said. “And we’re seeing it played out on the international stage right now. He’s destroying the reputation of this country. He’s getting Americans killed. There’s … American blood being shed in Afghanistan again, for the first time in many, many, many months. And it’s not going to be the last, you’re right.”
And he had a dire prediction of what would happen in the Middle East after Biden decided to remove United States troops and personnel.
“The orange jumpsuits are about to come back,” he said. “That’s the horrific stuff that we have to look forward to. The Taliban may capture some of these people because we’re going to have thousands, at least hundreds of Americans that are gonna be stranded over there. And then all of these interpreters and the Taliban might capture some of the Americans, and they might hold them ransom for some money. But ISIS is going to take them and they’re going to put them in these orange jumpsuits, and they’re going to behead them on videos that are going to get sent all over the world. That’s what we have to look forward to.”
“And he has destroyed our reputation with our allies. And just like you said, he has sent the wrong message to our adversaries,” the representative said. “We are tested every single day in this Biden administration … by our adversaries, and every day, Joe Biden fails that test, and it’s just going to keep getting worse and worse.”
He also spoke about reports that said the Taliban had released thousands of ISIS terrorists from prison.
“If Donald J. Trump was president, he would have sent every one of them to get GITMO or he would have blown that whole thing in place and buried them all there,” he said.
“Americans have died because of Biden’s FAILED withdrawal, and sadly, I don’t think the bloodshed is over. Biden’s sending a message of WEAKNESS to our enemies. Every day he’s being tested, & every day he FAILS. I pray no more Americans will have to die because of his INCOMPETENCE,” he said in a tweet with a video of his interview.

Jackson said something similar in July when he was interviewed on Fox News.
“I think he’s demonstrating every single day that there is something going on,” he said.
“You don’t need to be a physician to look at this behavior and see there’s something concerning happening,” he said. “He’s just not aging gracefully at this point.”
“You can go back – there’s forty years of tape of this man – he’s always made gaffes and stuff but these are different, he’s confused, he’s disoriented,” he said.
“We all know people who are 100-years old, who basically are as sharp as a tack, and we know people who are in their mid-60’s that having some cognitive difficulties…and I think he’s on that end of the spectrum,” he said.
“I’m just asking them, when you do the physical exam include the cognitive assessment,” the representative said. “As far as I’m concerned the standard precedent has been set and they need to follow and do the same.”
When the mainstream media was questioning Donald Trump’s mental cognition he acquiesced and took the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) which is a 30 point exam that tests for memory impairment, Fox News reported.
“The far left and the mainstream media were demanding that be the new standard for anybody who’s going to lead our country and be our Commander-in-Chief and our head of state,” he said. “I’m just saying I agree with them at this point — we need to get it done.”
