(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- Former White House physician, Texas Republican Congressman Ronny Jackson, last week questioned the absence of a cognitive test in President Joe Biden’s recent medical report, accusing the White House of a “cover-up.”
Last Thursday, the White House released the president’s health report in which White House physician Kevin O’Connor described the 80-year-old Biden as “healthy,” “vigorous,” and fit for duty.
According to the report, Biden underwent a neurological exam which found nothing consistent with Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, or stroke. However, the report does not say whether or not a cognitive test was conducted on the president.
Congressman Ronny Jackson, who served as White House physician under George W. Bush, Barack Obama, and Donald Trump, told Fox News that Americans can see for themselves that Joe Biden’s “mental health is in total decline.”
Accusing the White House of lacking transparency, Jackson told Fox last Friday that the report released by Dr. O’Connor proves that the White House is adamantly “concealing the truth” about Biden’s inability to do the job.
The Texas congressman told Fox that it was “alarming” to him that O’Connor’s report didn’t mention the president’s “deteriorating mental health.” He said he has written three letters to the Biden White House demanding that the president undergo cognitive testing and that the results be released to the public.
Jackson, who has received no response from the White House to any of his letters, told Fox that Biden’s cognitive decline is evident to “everyone.”
“The cover-up needs to end,” Jackson added.
In a tweet before the 2020 election, Jackson called for Joe Biden to undergo cognitive testing. Not long after sending his tweet, Jackson said he received an email from former President Obama who accused him of being “unprofessional” for taking a “cheap shot” at Biden.
During the White House press briefing last Thursday, press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre defended Biden’s health after facing questions about the president’s advanced age.
Jean-Pierre claimed that people only need to watch Joe Biden to see that he can keep up with his “grueling schedule,” adding that the rest of the White House staff “sometimes” can’t “keep up with” the president.
