Representative Ronny Jackson (R-TX), formerly the White House doctor for President Barack Obama, shared his expert medical opinion on Joe Biden’s ailing health Sunday morning with Fox Business’s Maria Bartiromo.
In Jackson’s opinion, Biden’s health is not getting any better from here, and he likely will not make it to the end of his term.
Here’s what Jackson said:
Jackson was reprimanded by his former patient, Barack Obama, for commenting on Joe Biden’s cognitive state during the 2020 election cycle. CNN reports:
(CNN) Former President Barack Obama sent an email to Ronny Jackson, a former White House physician who went on to become a GOP congressman, expressing his “disappointment” over Jackson’s criticism of Joe Biden’s cognitive health in 2020, according to a copy of the email obtained by CNN.
Obama sent the email, which Fox News first reported, when Biden was running for president and Jackson was running for Congress in Texas. Jackson retweeted a video of Biden with the message: “Remember the cognitive test that I gave @realDonaldTrump? The one he aced! Sounds like somebody else might need some testing done!! Scary!!”
Jackson received an email from Obama shortly after. The email is included in Jackson’s yet-to-be-released memoir titled “Holding the Line: A Lifetime of Defending Democracy and American Values.”
“I have made a point of not commenting on your service in my successor’s administration and have always spoken highly of you both in public and in private. You always served me and my family well, and I have considered you not only a fine doctor and service member but also a friend,” Obama said in the email.
