Obama White House Doctor Discusses Biden’s Cognitive Function: ‘Not Up To The Job’

A former White House doctor who served during the presidency of Barack Obama just weighed in on the cognitive function of Democrat candidate Joe Biden. Well, this is really bad news for anyone who is supporting the former vice president, and it’s vital information all Americans have a right to know. You don’t want to miss this.

Former White House physician Dr. Ronny Jackson, who started his service in 2013 under Barack Obama, is making waves after he weighed in on the former vice president’s cognitive function and answered questions about his capacity to serve as president of the United States.

Jackson said Tuesday that the Democratic nominee “does not have the mental capacity” to handle the rigors of the presidency.

“He is not up to the job,” Dr. Jackson told reporters in a conference call organized by President Trump’s reelection campaign. “I’ve watched Joe Biden on the campaign trail and I’m concerned that he does not have the mental capacity, the cognitive ability, to serve as our commander-in-chief. He routinely gets lost in the middle of a thought and can’t recalibrate.”

Dr. Jackson pointed to recent gaffes in which Mr. Biden, for example, told supporters on Monday that he was running for Senate and couldn’t remember the name of Republican Sen. Mitt Romey of Utah, referring to him as “the Mormon.”

“I’m not making a medical assessment,” Dr. Jackson said. “I never took care of Vice President Biden. I’m not trying to remotely diagnose him with anything. I’m saying it as a concerned citizen. We can all see. … something’s going on here. He is having some extremely bad days. This is serious. We’re picking a commander-in-chief [who] has to be at the top of their game cognitively. And he’s really not.”

Former Trump deputy national security adviser K.T. McFarland said Mr. Biden “just is not the guy to do it anymore.”

“He’s a nice man, but he’s not a strong man,” she told reporters, saying Mr. Biden’s decline is “pretty obvious for all to see.”

“Don’t expect our adversaries to be nice to him,” she said. “They’re going to take advantage of that and exploit that at every single step.”

Dr. Jay Fleitman, a noted pulmonologist in Massachusetts, is also making his worries known about Joe Biden’s recent “gaffes” on the campaign trail.

“These are not lovable Joe Biden gaffes,” Fleitman claimed. “I have been involved in patient care for over 40 years, and have no doubt that these are signs of significant cognitive defects. I don’t know if Joe Biden has Alzheimer’s disease, but he clearly has a degenerative neurological disorder in which dementia is a part.”

“The Democrat on the street knows this as well, though no one wants to name it,” Dr. Fleitman adds. “I have overheard several conversations in which people who clearly support the Biden campaign expressed the hope that he stays out of the public, [and] does little speaking.”

“I am asking Democrats not to turn a blind eye to what is in plain sight about Joe Biden for president,” Fleitman concludes.

What we do know about Biden’s medical history is that he suffered from two brain aneurysms. 

“The 4 1/2-hour procedure was similar to that performed Feb. 12 on the left side of Mr. Biden’s brain. Under the procedure, a surgeon using a microscope pinches the aneurysm with a clip, bringing the walls of the artery together. The clip remains in the patient,” New York Times reported in 1988.

Biden was 45-years-old. “Mr. Esker said there are no signs of any other aneurysms, adding that the second was much smaller than the first,” New York Times adds.

Medical history is very important to forecast problems a patient may have in the future. Brain aneurysms cut off oxygen to the brain. Studies suggest that long-term effects include vascular dementia.

Vascular dementia is when decreased blood flow damages brain tissue, and it is the second most common form of dementia. Symptoms include difficulty finding the right words, personality changes, such as becoming aggressive, memory loss, and difficulty concentrating, to name just a few.

The Biden campaign scoffs at these reports claiming “look at the debate.”

There are studies that have found the drug Ritalin, which is considered “an upper” in lay terms, is being used to treat patients with dementia and Alzheimers. Leftists vilified President Donald Trump when he suggested both he and Biden take a “drug test” before the debate.

A drug like Ritalin or Adderall could be behind Biden’s debate performance. If they pumped up Biden with a big dose of Ritalin just prior to the debate, he would be much sharper cognitively. I have no way of knowing this, so this is just my own professional opinion as a Registered Nurse, who worked extensively with mentally ill patients including those with dementia.

There is a danger, though. No doctor would prescribe high levels of a psycho-stimulant like Ritalin or Adderall as a daily routine. Which can explain why we see Biden making gaffes after the debate like failing to remember Mitt Romney’s name and calling him, “that Mormon guy” or telling a crowd, “I’m a Democrat running for the Senate.”

This may be the biggest story of the campaign the mainstream media continues to ignore. It might be the most dangerous story they ignored, too. That’s why we must make sure as many Americans as possible get the information and then they can decide for themselves if Joe Biden is capable of holding the highest office in the land.
