A large group of well over three dozen Republican legislators is sounding the call for Old Uncle Joe, aged 79, to be administered a cognitive test, just as former President Donald Trump was subjected to while he held the White House.
Old Uncle Joe currently holds the title of oldest man to ever hold the office of the president, and these Republican lawmakers are stating that they just want to ensure he is mentally fit to continue to hold office.
A grand total of 37 GOP legislators stood alongside Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-TX) in the signing of a letter. The group includes Republican leadership members House Republican Conference chairwoman Rep. Elise Stefanik of New York, GOP conference vice chairman Mike Johnson of Louisiana, Republican Study Committee chairman Rep. Jim Banks of Indiana, and several members of the GOP Doctors Caucus.
The letter itself takes time to express their “concern” about Biden’s “current cognitive state.”
Jackson has, in the past, been a vocal advocate of concerns regarding the stability of Biden’s mental acuity.
“My colleagues and I are again asking President Biden to immediately undergo a formal cognitive screening exam, such as the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MOCA),” stated Jackson in an email to Fox News Digital.
“As a former physician to three Presidents of the United States, I know what it takes mentally and physically to execute the duties of Commander-in-Chief and Head of State,” claimed Jackson. “Joe Biden has continually proven to me and to the world that something isn’t right. The American people deserve to have absolute confidence in their President’s cognitive ability.”
Jackson went on to state that Biden’s taking of “the cognitive test will be an important first step” in the efforts to reassure Americans that he is still fit to hold the office. Or, however, the test could discover issues and help “in identifying and properly treating symptoms of impairment that are consistent with a variety of cognitive diseases, such as Alzheimer’s, vascular dementia, Parkinson’s, or multiple sclerosis.”
The doctor also went on to state that every American should be very interested in the findings. “This is not a partisan issue. When I discussed taking a cognitive test with President Trump, he was eager to assure the American people and to put the fake news media’s stories to bed,” stated the former presidential doctor. “Why won’t President Biden do the same?”
“We can only assume the worst if he doesn’t submit to the same standard that his own party demanded of the last administration,” he continued. “The precedent has been set.”
As stated in the letter, Republicans state that they “believe that, regardless of gender, age, or political party, all Presidents should follow the example set by former President Trump to document and demonstrate sound mental abilities.”
“While you underwent your annual physical exam on November 19, 2021, you either did not face a cognitive test or those results were withheld from the public.”
“The Alzheimer’s Association lists ‘changes in mood and personality,’ including being more ‘easily upset’ as one of ten signs of mental decline,” claimed the letter. “You displayed this type of mood change during a cabinet meeting on January 24, 2022, when you apparently did not know your microphone was on after finishing your opening remarks, and you called a White House reporter a ‘stupid son of a b—-’ in response to a question he asked on inflation.”
