WH Doctor Declares Biden 'Fit' for Presidency After Physical – But Medical Experts Note 1 Missing Piece


At 80 years old, President Joe Biden is “vigorous” and “fit to successfully execute the duties of the presidency,” according to his physician.

On Thursday, Dr. Kevin O’Connor released details from the president’s physical examination and deemed him “healthy.”

But some medical experts pointed out the exam did not include details about his mental status.

Dr. Janette Nesheiwat, an emergency medical professional and a Fox News contributor, told Fox News Digitial she would like to see the results of a “mini mental status exam.”

“How did he do on that? What was his score? I would like to know,” she said, adding, “Physical, mental, emotional health are all as equally important.”

Nesheiwat continued, “The job of the presidency is a very demanding, stressful job. We must ensure our leader is physically, mentally, and emotionally capable, especially when it comes to decisions regarding life and death and the overall health, safety, and well-being of our nation.”

“We need a president who is sharp, shrewd, who has the cognitive stamina and the mental acumen to lead our great country,” she added.

In the report detailing the results from Biden’s physical, O’Connor noted there were no signs consistent with a stroke, multiple sclerosis, or Parkinson’s disease. He did mention the president has a “stiff gait” and was given custom orthotics.

Dr. Marc Siegel, a professor of medicine at NYU Langone Medical Center, appeared on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” and suggested the report was “more significant for what it leaves out than what it actually tells us.”

Do you think Biden should take a cognitive test?

He suggested doctors should have given the president an MRI to determine the cause of Biden’s “stiff gait.” Additionally, he asked about a cognitive test.

“We have a cognitive error a day at least from this president who the other day said 20,000 pounds of fentanyl was enough to kill 1,000 people, how about 4 billion people,” Siegel went on. “Or he calls Kamala Harris the president, or he forgets a congressperson’s name, or one that has died [he] thinks is in the audience.”

Siegel suggested a cognitive test might be warranted because a stiff gait “is sometimes a sign of a cognitive problems.”

Meanwhile, Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-Texas), a White House physician who worked for former President Barack Obama and former President Donald Trump, tweeted, “We learned NOTHING from Biden’s physical exam. How bad is his cognitive issue? Is he on ANY drugs to treat his mental decline? This exam was a JOKE. COVER UP!!”

Biden’s physical comes as he has said he intends to run for reelection but has not yet shared his official decision. He would be 86 at the end of his second term.
