Ex-White House Doctor: Biden Dodged Cognitive Test as He Knew He'd 'Fail Miserably'
'There were six pages of stuff that most people just don’t care about'
Former White House physician Ronny Jackson weighed in on Joe Biden's recent health report by highlighting the apparent lack of a cognitive examination.
Jackson, who served in the role under both Presidents Obama and Trump, now represents Texas’s 13th Congressional District.
The former WH doctor made the remarks on Newsmax during appearance describing Biden’s health report as “six pages of superficial fluff.”
Jackson was asked if he was surprised by anything missing in the report.
“There was a lot missing," he responded.
“Honestly, there were six pages of stuff that most people just don’t care about,” Jackson said.
“I mean, you know, Dr. O’Connor spent six pages addressing like an occasional cough and some stiffness and things like that when the elephant in the room was the president’s cognitive ability.
"Over 50% of this country does not believe he’s cognitively fit to be our Commander in Chief and our head of state, yet that wasn’t addressed anywhere in there."
Why didn't Biden have a cognitive exam? His "health summary" was 6 pages of NOTHING. Biden's lost, he's confused, and this White House is doing everything they can to HIDE his obvious cognitive decline. They can't keep hiding this forever.

"We set the precedent when we did President Trump’s physical. I did," he said.
"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 — we did a cognitive test."
"As far as I’m concerned, we set a precedent. And he should have had one done as well. I mean, if anyone needs a cognitive test, it’s this president that we have right now."
"And I was really surprised to see there wasn’t any mention of anything like that in there.”
Jackson was asked if Biden’s medical team intentionally left out a cognitive exam.
“No, I don’t think they did it," he responded.
“They didn’t do it because they know, if they do it, you don’t ask questions that you don’t want the answers to,” Jackson said.
“And essentially, I mean, that’s his approach right now is not to ask questions that he doesn’t want the answers to."
"They know that if they gave him a cognitive test, that he would have failed miserably, and then they would have had to explain that away somehow."
"And Dr. O’Connor should have done what I had to do whenever I briefed President Trump’s physical, is stand up in front of the press in the press briefing room, and brief the physical.
"I was up there for an hour and 15 minutes answering every single question that the press had, picking his physical apart. And instead, what did we get?"
"We just got a six-page report, and that’s the end of it. We’re supposed just to move on and play like everything’s fine now.”
Jackson also said he thought the report mentioning Biden having a “stiffened walking pattern” could also be “a physical manifestation of some of the cognitive diseases that you can have as well.”
“So, they tried to explain that away with, you know, just being orthopedic-related, but we don’t know for sure, you know, because we didn’t, we didn’t get any detailed stuff that, maybe they should have included an MRI of his brain and things of that nature, too,” Jackson said.
“But none of that stuff was there. It was all superficial fluff; six pages of superficial fluff is all we got. And they were doing it just to check a box.”
Earlier this week, Renowned political commentator Brit Hume also warned Biden's mental fitness is "clearly deteriorating" and says it is now likely he will not complete his first term in office.
"He’s clearly deteriorating, he’s clearly senile, and his health is — despite his doctor’s claims to the contrary — you know, when you’re falling downstairs and so on, as he did climbing the stairs to Air Force One, that’s worrisome.”
