A Republican legislator who previously served as White House doctor is lashing out at President Joe Biden with accusations that are not only baseless but ironic, considering the man’s own alleged history of substance abuse on the job.
Representative Dr. Ronny Jackson (R-TX), who an investigation found to have engaged in inappropriate conduct and on-duty substance use during his time as a White House medic, has turned to right-wing media to engage in conspiracy theories about President Biden and deflection of his own shortcomings.
In an interview, Jackson postulated that Biden could be using drugs to stay “hopped up;” that there is “something wrong” with the president and that “everyone knows it;” that Democrats want him out of office; and that even the Commander in Chief’s sunglasses are a symptom of cognitive decline.
He hinted at some conspiracy in the delay in releasing records from Biden’s routine physical, and Jackson and the host speculated on whether it would include a cognitive test — and if so, whether the results would be real or falsified.
Jackson spoke with a straight face as though presenting facts throughout — despite the outcome of an investigation of which he himself was the subject.
“The report outlines two instances of Jackson reportedly drinking alcohol on presidential trips in violation of protocol…Six witnesses, all medical personnel, raised questions about Jackson’s fitness to provide care to senior government officials during long flights, when he would take the prescription medication Ambien to combat insomnia,” Forbes reported in 2021.
We need to know the FULL RESULTS of Biden’s physical exam. What medications is he taking? Will there be a cognitive exam? If any President has needed a cognitive assessment, it’s this one! He’s the most incompetent president in history. You DESERVE answers to these questions!! pic.twitter.com/2QkGGQoEfh
