Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-TX), who was the White House physician under former Presidents Obama and Trump, called President Biden’s recent health report “six pages of superficial fluff” during an interview with Newsmax this week.
According to Jackson, “there was a lot missing” from the report.
“Honestly, there were six pages of stuff that most people just don’t care about,” Jackson said. “I mean, you know, Dr. O’Connor spent six pages addressing like an occasional cough and some stiffness and things like that when the elephant in the room was the president’s cognitive ability. Over 50% of this country does not believe he’s cognitively fit to be our Commander in Chief and our head of state, yet that wasn’t addressed anywhere in there.”
“We set the precedent when we did President Trump’s physical,” Jackson continued. “I did. The far-Left and the mainstream media were relentless in their pursuit of me to do something to address not only his physical capabilities, but his mental capabilities, which we did — we did a cognitive test. As far as I’m concerned, we set the precedent. And he should have had one done as well. I mean, if anyone needs a cognitive test, it’s this president that we have right now. And I was really surprised to see there wasn’t any mention of anything like that in there.”
Jackson said he did not think that Biden’s medical team performed a cognitive exam on the president because they knew “he would have failed miserably.”
“They didn’t do it because they know, if they do it, you don’t ask questions that you don’t want the answers to,” Jackson said. “And essentially, I mean, that’s his approach right now is not to ask questions that he doesn’t want the answers to. They know that if they gave him a cognitive test, that he would have failed miserably, and then they would have had to explain that away somehow. And Dr. O’Connor should have done what I had to do whenever I briefed President Trump’s physical, is stand up in front of the press in the press briefing room, and brief the physical. I was up there for an hour and 15 minutes answering every single question that the press had picking his physical apart. And instead what did we get? We just got a six page report and that’s the end of it. We’re supposed to just move on and play like everything’s fine now.”
Jackson noted that the report stated Biden had problems with a “stiffened walking pattern,” which he said could be “a physical manifestation of some of the cognitive diseases that you can have as well.”
“So, they tried to explain that away with, you know, just being orthopedic-related, but we don’t know for sure, you know, because we didn’t, we didn’t get any detailed stuff that, maybe they should have included an MRI of his brain and things of that nature, too,” Jackson said. “But none of that stuff was there. It was all superficial fluff, six pages of superficial fluff is all we got. And they were doing it just to check a box.”
Why didn't Biden have a cognitive exam? His "health summary" was 6 pages of NOTHING. Biden's lost, he's confused, and this White House is doing everything they can to HIDE his obvious cognitive decline. They can't keep hiding this forever.

Earlier this year, Jackson warned that Biden’s mental health was “only going to get worse.”
“And I’ve been saying that it’s only going to get worse, and guess what? We’re watching that happen right before our eyes right now,” Jackson said during a Fox News interview. “And I’m at the point right now where, you know, I went from, you know, telling people, we should be concerned about what might potentially be going on, to now saying, hey, what is happening right now?”
“Where are the people in our academic medicine that were out there calling for President Trump to have a cognitive test? Where are these people?” Jackson added. “There’s something seriously going on with this man right now. And you know, I think that he’s either gonna, he’s either gonna resign, they’re going to convince him to resign from office at some point in the near future for medical issues, or they’re going to have to use the 25th Amendment to get rid of this man right now. There’s some serious stuff going on right now.”
