President Joe Biden’s mental capacities have been the subject of many questions over the past couple of years. Throughout Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign and his first five months as president, his gaffes have been frequent and very visible.
It has now reached the point that a former White House physician is publicly signaling his concern about Biden’s mental health. Republican Rep. Ronny Jackson of Texas, who served as White House physician for former Presidents Barack Obama and Donald Trump, sent Biden a letter on Thursday calling on him to take a cognitive test.
“The American people should have absolute confidence in their President,” the letter said. “They deserve to know that he or she can perform the duties of Head of State and Commander in Chief.”
