Is President Biden primed to meet America's challenges? Cognitively speaking, one man says no.
Notably, he's a doctor.
More curious: He surely knows erstwhile VP Joe — physician Ronny Jackson served as White House doctor during the Obama presidency.
On Friday, Ronny took to Twitter.
The doctor is in…censed:
“Biden doesn't know what's going on with Ukraine. He doesn't know what's going on with ANYTHING! He's not cognitively capable of leading. He needs to RESIGN before our country suffers any more.”

It's not his first remark of the sort.
In a February 23rd Fox Digital interview — and amid crisis in Ukraine — he jabbed Joe:
“The whole country is seeing his mental cognitive issues on display for over a year now, and there's really no question in most people's minds that there's something going on with him, that he's not cognitively the same as he used to be and, in my mind, not fit to be our president right now.”
“Every time he gets up and talks to the American people,” Jackson continued, “it's not just the American people that are watching him speak. It's the whole world, and that's part of what the problem is here. He looks tired, he looks weak, he looks confused, he's incoherent, and it sends a message of weakness all over the world, and they're seizing up on that.”
Ronny's not wrong. Whenever America's executive orates, he sounds like he's down to half a lung. If he were a schooner, his sole sail would consist of penetrated plastic wrap. He's reached that point where you only put one candle on his cake — not due to insufficient space, but because he lacks the capacity to blow more out. You light that waxed “80” figurine and pretend you're having the grandkids help only because it's cute.
Certainly, no one would claim the Commander-in-Chief is a “young” 79.
And it's no reason for shame — we're all headed that way. Hopefully, none of us will bear the burden of leading a third of a billion people once we're there.
Dr. Ronny — to be clear, now a Republican Texas congressman — noted Joe's never been foul-up free. But things have taken a terrible turn.
“He's got 40 years of tape,” Jackson told Fox. “You can go back and look, he's always made gaffes, he's always made missteps, but never like this. This is something different. These aren't gaffes… This is something much more serious.”
And we're seriously in need — of someone to navigate serious situations.
It's only March of 2022. What lies ahead?
Whatever it is, Dr. Ronny isn't the only former Obama associate to convey a lack of confidence.
Top Barack economic advisor Steve Rattner has also leveled the Leader of the Free World.
This week, ABC News quoted Joe:
“A large contributor to inflation this month was an increase in gas and energy prices as markets reacted to Putin's aggressive actions. As I have said from the start, there will be costs at home as we impose crippling sanctions in response to Putin's unprovoked war…”
Is that accurate? Steve chimed in:
“Well, no. These are Feb #'s and only include small Russia effect. This is Biden's inflation and he needs to own it.”
Well, no. These are Feb #'s and only include small Russia effect. This is Biden's inflation and he needs to own it. https://t.co/WsJjn6picV— Steven Rattner (@SteveRattner) March 10, 2022
Toward how many more highs — and lows — are we headed?
Whatever awaits, the President appears to suffer from the kind of ailments that don't improve with time.
What will Democrats do in 2024? Will they run Joe again?
I'd say it isn't likely. How could he win?
Then again, the same could be — and was — said already. Still, this led to a national inauguration:
