Dr. Ronny Jackson, a former physician to President’s Barack Obama and Donald Trump, recently made comments about former Vice President Joe Biden — now the official Democratic presidential nominee — regarding his alleged mental health issues.
“The best way I can describe him every time I see him is that he’s just lost,” Jackson said in a soon-to-be-released book by Donald Trump Jr, according to The Washington Examiner.
Jackson, a retired U.S. Navy Rear Admiral, stopped short of a full diagnosis, but offered up alarming insight from his strong medical background about Biden’s state of health as he races toward to the finish line in November when he hopes to convince voters that he’s a better choice than Trump.
“I won’t make any particular diagnosis about dementia. … But what I will say is that something is not right,” Jackson said. The military and presidential doctor also stated that he’s no longer comfortable with the idea of Biden running the White House.
“I’m not,” Jackson said.
Jackson also explained that he’s well aware of Biden’s gaffe-producing potential and has seen it for years, but suggested that his latest string of gaffes are potentially more than that.
“Speaking as someone who was in the White House, [I] saw him frequently around the West Wing and other places like that. I know he’s always been prone to gaffes, but these aren’t gaffes anymore. He can’t form sentences. Sometimes, he can’t complete a thought. I mean, he gets stuck, and he doesn’t know how to get out of the situation that he’s in. And he just finally has to give up,” Jackson stated.
Jackson began his medical career on Capitol Hill by serving in the White House Medical Unit during George W. Bush’s administration and would later go on to work as an official White House physician for both Obama and Trump. A Trump supporter, Jackson recently won a Republican primary in Texas for a state office.
Trump Jr.’s book, Liberal Privilege: Joe Biden and the Democrats’ Defense of the Indefensible, is already selling rapidly online but won’t be officially available until Sep. 1.
