Former White House physician Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-TX) shared his assessment of President Joe Biden’s mental fitness, suggesting it has gotten “worse.”
During an interview with Fox News on Sunday, Jackson said, “You know, it’s continued to get worse since he was candidate Joe Biden.”
He explained, “When I first started talking about this, the American people have continued to have questions about a lot of his bizarre behaviors, this holding hands thing is one of them, the way he makes up stories, and he just repeatedly tells the stories that everyone has documented are not true, that happens pretty frequently.”
Jackson continued, “He has these emotional outbursts. He shuffles when he walks. He slurs his speech. He always looks frail and fragile. I just think it’s continued to get worse and worse.”
He suggested that “Democrats and the mainstream media now are starting to say, ‘We can’t ignore this a whole lot longer.'”
According to Jackson, “At some point or another, we’re going to have to address this, we’re going to have to explain to the American people what’s going on, you know, I have to ask them multiple times to see his complete medical record for the American people to see it, for him to do cognitive tests.”

During an interview with “60 Minutes,” host Scott Pelley asked Biden how he would say his mental focus is.
“Oh, it’s focused. I’d say it’s, I think it’s, I, I haven’t, look, I have trouble even mentioning, even saying to myself, my own head, the number of years,” Biden said.
He added, “I no more think of myself as being as old as I am than fly. I mean, it’s just not, I haven’t, observed anything in terms of, there’s not things I don’t do now that I did before, whether it’s physical, or mental, or anything else.”

Additionally, Biden was asked whether he is committed to running again in 2024, as IJR reported.
“Look, my intention as I said to begin with is that I would run again. But it’s just an intention. But is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen,” Biden said.
