Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-TX), a former White House physician, predicts that President Joe Biden will either be forced to resign or face the 25th Amendment over concerns regarding his mental fitness to serve in office.
The story: Jackson, who served in the role under both Presidents Obama and Trump, expressed concern about Biden’s ability to serve as president.
“Something’s going on here,” he told Fox News on Thursday. “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. 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?”
The Texas Republican also called out those who sounded the alarm about former President Trump’s mental acuity.
“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 asked.
He then said that Biden will either be forced to resign or lawmakers will invoke the 25th Amendment because of what Jackson said were issued with the president’s mental capabilities.
“There’s something seriously going on with this man right now,” he continued. “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.”
Jackson later shared a clip of his appearance on the network and wrote that Biden is “lost,” “confused,” and “can barely put a coherent sentence together.”
Worth noting: Last month, Jackson and 13 other Republicans, signed a letter, which was sent to the president, arguing that Biden has shown signs of poor mental state and should take a cognitive test to prove otherwise.
“Unfortunately, your mental decline and forgetfulness have become more apparent over the past 18 months,” they wrote in the letter. “We encourage you to follow the example set by President Trump by undergoing a cognitive test as soon as possible and immediately making the results available for the American people.”
