Representative Calls Biden’s Decline ‘Profound’

( – Republican Rep. Ronny Jackson of Texas, a former White House physician during the Obama administration, thinks that President Joe Biden’s mental decline from when he was as vice president to the present day is “profound.”

Jackson appeared on Newmax’s “FRONTLINE” and told host Carl Higbie that Biden’s cognitive decline is palpable. He told viewers to “go back and look” at videos of Biden from back when he was vice president under former President Barack Obama and compare what you see to current videos. Biden is “not the same man,” Jackson said, describing his “degeneration” as “profound.”

The GOP congressman added that he believes it’s “absolutely insane” that people not only think Biden can finish his current term in office, but that he could “do another four years” in his condition.

The remarks come a week after Robert Hur, the special counsel in charge of the probe into Biden’s mishandling of classified documents, published his report on the president that concluded criminal charges were not warranted. According to Hur’s report, the evidence was not sufficient enough to establish Biden’s guilt “beyond a reasonable doubt.”

The report also cited the president’s memory as a factor in the decision, stating that the jury would likely perceive Biden as “a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with poor memory.” Many of the president’s detractors pointed out the contradiction of Biden being considered competent enough to hold the highest office in the land but not competent enough to stand trial.

Biden pushed back against the notion that his age and cognitive function were impeding his ability to serve in a press conference on Thursday, Feb. 8, a few days after Hur’s report was released. He reiterated the special counsel’s words, stating that he is certainly “well-meaning” and “an elderly man” but that he also knows what he’s doing and has put the country “back on its feet.”

A recent poll from McLaughlin & Associates conducted in January found that 82% of respondents felt Biden’s “state of health and mental fitness” is his largest “weak point” as a presidential candidate.
