Rep. Ronny Jackson, R-Texas, who served as the White House physician under presidents Obama and Trump, questioned Biden’s cognitive health in 2020 via Twitter. Jackson revealed that email conversation during his recently published memoir, reported Fox News.
Jackson specifically focused on Biden’s “crazy statements and concerning mental gaffes.”
“He apparently thought at one point that he was running for the Senate and later couldn’t remember what state he was campaigning in,” Jackson recalled. “This had been going on for months and was getting worse.”
Jackson received a harsh email from Obama 20 minutes after the tweet landed.
“I have made a point of not commenting on your service in my successor’s administration and have always spoken highly of you both in public and in private. You always served me and my family well, and I have considered you not only a fine doctor and service member but also a friend,” Obama wrote.
“That’s why I have to express my disappointment at the cheap shot you took at Joe Biden via Twitter. It was unprofessional and beneath the office that you once held. It was also disrespectful to me and the many friends you had in our administration,” the great unifier scolded.
“You were the personal physician to the President of the United States as well as an admiral in the U.S. Navy. I expect better, and I hope upon reflection that you will expect more of yourself in the future.”
However, Jackson wasn’t phased by Obama’s rebuke. As recently as January of this year, he tweeted his continued concerns about Biden’s mental health and demanded a cognitive test.
BIDEN JUST IGNORED A QUESTION ABOUT HIS COGNITIVE DECLINE! Something is WRONG with him. This man IS NOT qualified to be President!! I am demanding he have a cognitive test NOW. There’s too much on the line, we need to know!

Biden’s health has transcended partisan politics and gained international attention.
“The man is so foggy-brained now that he couldn’t even read a speech on a teleprompter last week without reading the instructions to repeat a line,” and alarmed SkyNews host said after one of Biden’s recent bumbling press conferences.
Even experts are expressing their concern.
Biden is currently traveling to the Middle East to negotiate oil deals and discuss the Iran Nuclear Deal. Some middle eastern leaders have expressed extreme unease about the teleprompter-in-chief’s visit and its potential to unravel with the slip of a Bidenism gaffe, reported Fox News.
