We’ve all known for a long time that Biden’s mental health isn’t ideal.
Many people, including some on the left, questioned Biden’s cognitive abilities long before he “won” in November. You can tell that people closest to him have tried to conceal his circumstances, but now that he’s officially “president,” the facade is beginning to crack.
Finally, someone in D.C. is making a big deal over Biden’s obvious health difficulties.
Rep. Ronny Johnson, a Republican, is sounding the alarm on old Joe’s mind, requesting that his doctor release a report on Biden’s health in the same way that Trump’s doctor released one.

According to NBC News:
On Tuesday, at the request of his patient, Dr. Kevin O’Connor of The George Washington University released a three-page medical summary of Biden’s health, in which he described Biden as a “healthy, vigorous, 77-year-old male, who is fit to successfully execute the duties of the Presidency, including those as Chief Executive, Head of State, and Commander in Chief.”
According to earlier medical records published during Biden’s stint as vice president, there has been no significant change in his medical history. In the late 1980s, Biden had two cerebral aneurysms, one of which did not rupture. While the problem was later aggravated by deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism, O’Connor claims that Biden’s health is currently unaffected and that medical concerns from his background are under control.
Biden is on blood thinners and medicines for acid reflux, cholesterol, and seasonal allergies, among other things. Acid reflux can occasionally induce a raspy voice, according to Dr. John Torres, an NBC News medical correspondent. This has been visible on the campaign trail at times.
Biden’s regular physician since 2009, O’Connor also revealed the results of Biden’s most recent physical checkup, which revealed that he is in good health. Notably, Biden’s doctor attributes his good health to his resolve not to smoke or drink, as well as his devotion to doing out “at least five days a week.”
Critics of Biden’s age frequently assert that he is psychologically and physically unfit to serve as president; however, O’Connor makes no such claims, claiming that Biden’s “cranial nerves and vestibular function are normal” according to his most recent medical.
Two other septuagenarian Democratic contenders, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg have also published medical reports. Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, an independent, has yet to reveal his.
In recent years, Biden has had his gallbladder removed and has been treated for non-cancerous polyps and skin abrasions.
