(John Ransom, Headline USA) Former White House doctor Rep. Ronny Jackson, R-Texas, said in a tweet that it’s obvious from a recent press conference marking his one year as president that Joe Biden has had a “cognitive decline” and Jackson is demanding that the president take a cognitive test immediately.
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!

He has frequently raised quesitons about Biden’s cognitive functions, although widely dismissed a left-leaning mainstream media that selectively chooses what science to follow.
Biden appeared to lose his train of thought and become disoriented at times during the press conference, leading one reporter to ask the president about his cognitive fitness, about which recent surveys said American’s across the political spectrum have grave doubts.
Citing a poll from Politico-Morning Consult that said 49% of registered voters disagree with the statement that Biden is “mentally fit”, Newsmax White House correspondent James Rosen asked the president why that was the case.
Biden lowered his head in obvious shock while listening to the question and raised it and answered simply “I have no idea” and took another question.
The New York Post editorial board excoriated Biden for is performance, saying that the president “couldn’t remember what he said last week,” and noted that often times it was difficult to know exactly what the president really meant because “his syntax made it impossible to say for sure.”
That’s a big concern, because Biden seemed to give a green light to a threatened Russian invasion of Ukraine when he said as long as it’s only a “minor incursion” by Moscow that the U.S. response would be limited. That raised alarms even at the New York Times.
“Biden’s comments suggesting that a ‘minor incursion’ of Ukraine might not draw as vigorous a response as a full-scale invasion will trigger a lot of angst in the region, particularly in Kyiv,” NYT chief White House correspondent Peter Baker wrote, according to Fox News.
