Representative Ronny Jackson claims a Special Counsel's report validates concerns about President Joe Biden's mental fitness, suggesting the 25th Amendment should be considered. Jackson, having served as the White House doctor for 14 years, is no stranger to the physical and cognitive demands placed on the occupant of the Oval Office.
His recent statements about Biden's cognitive abilities, sparked by Special Counsel Robert Hur's findings, have ignited a flurry of controversy and concern. Referencing Robert Hur's report, Jackson pointed out the described "significantly limited" memory of President Biden. This aspect of the report suggests a worryingly diminished capacity in the President's cognitive functions. Jackson's critique doesn't stop at memory concerns; he highlights an array of physical and mental signs indicating Biden's decline, including forgetfulness and slurred speech.
Jackson expressed, "This man is not cognitively fit to be our president." His assertions are not newly founded, having been a consistent voice of concern regarding Biden's mental fitness even before Biden was elected President.
The Special Counsel's findings, as echoed by Jackson, include a statement from the Department of Justice (DOJ) suggesting that President Biden might not be fit to stand trial for alleged crimes related to classified documents due to his cognitive state. This detail, in particular, has added fuel to the fire regarding discussions about the President's ability to serve.
Jackson's criticisms extend beyond the contents of the report. He has been vocal about his observations of Biden's behavior, characterizing them as worsening over time. Jackson's commentary does not shy away from the implications of such a decline, stating, "If he can’t stand trial, because of his cognitive issues...he can’t be the president of the United States."
The former White House doctor did not diagnose Biden but noted the observations are clear indicators of serious cognitive decline. He elaborated on the physical and mental signs that have led to his concern, detailing slurred speech, a stiff gait, forgetfulness, and confusion among the President's ailment symptoms, Breitbart reported.
Ronny Jackson remarked on the severity of the situation, deepened by the implications it has on national security and the perception of American leadership abroad. "We're in a situation where our adversaries overseas are looking at what’s happening and they are just licking their chops," he stated, highlighting the potential risks associated with perceived weakness in leadership.
The discussion of the 25th Amendment by Jackson indicates the depth of his concern for the President's state and the potential necessity for action. This constitutional provision allows for the removal of a president who is unable to discharge the powers and duties of the office, showcasing the gravity of Jackson's suggestions.
"I think we’re at the point now where they should be thinking about that (the 25th Amendment)," Jackson stated, emphasizing the need for serious consideration of the President's capacity to serve effectively.
Jackson's commentary extends into political territory, critiquing those around Biden for their roles in continuing to support his presidency despite these concerns. He described an ambitious Jill Biden and critiqued the selection of Joe Biden as a candidate, stating that it set up a scenario ripe for defeat by political rivals.
Representative Ronny Jackson's comments on President Joe Biden's cognitive abilities, supported by Special Counsel Robert Hur's report, raise significant concerns.
Jackson's observations and the report suggest a cognitive decline in the President that could potentially render him unfit for the presidency, inviting discussions about the 25th Amendment.
These developments intensify the debate on the adequacy of leadership and its implications for national and global perception and stability.
