As Joe Biden heads into the weekend, most likely for even more time away at his Wilmington, Delaware home, he will do so with the thought in mind that many voters in America will be mulling over and discussing the troubling findings from the Hur report, specifically, the parts that refer to his frequent, concerning memory lapses.
“…Mr. Biden would likely present himself to a jury, as he did during our interview of him, as a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory,” special counsel Robert Hur observed in the damning report.

One high-profile politico who is talking a lot about the report is Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-Texas), who was a physician to three former presidents, George W. Bush, Barack Obama, and Donald Trump.
Jackson has spoken often over the years about what he has observed up close and from a distance about Joe Biden, and what he believes to be a steady cognitive decline in the 81-year-old president. Jackson’s outspokenness on the issue even cost him his friendship and professional relationship with Obama, who wrote him a nastygram in 2020 over his public comments about Biden’s mental health.
“It’s a grueling job, both mentally and physically,” Jackson said in late 2023. “This man can’t do the job. He’s proven to us every single day that he can’t do the job, but this is going to get worse.”
In response to the Hur report, where it was pointed out that Biden could not only not remember when he was vice president but also could not remember “even within several years” the date of his son Beau Biden’s tragic death, Jackson has been on a “told ya so” tour of sorts, noting that he was raising the issues well before Biden was elected, and pointing out that the findings lead to only one conclusion:
“He’s our Commander-in-Chief, our head of state and you know, if he can’t stand trial, because of his cognitive issues, I mean, it goes without saying that he can’t be the president of the United States. And so then he gets on TV and he tries to refute this. And he makes it even worse,” Jackson said, asserting that Biden simply validated what was said in the report.
We’re in a situation where our adversaries overseas are looking at what’s happening and they are just licking their chops that we don’t have a competent Commander-in-Chief. And our allies are terrified that, you know, that we’re supposed to be one of their main allies supporting them, you know, endeavors all over the world. So this is a bad situation…”
In another interview, Jackson suggested that assuming Joe Biden is nominated at the Democratic National Convention later this summer, Democrats should immediately get him to take a mental competency test:
Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-Texas), a physician to both former Presidents Barack Obama and Donald Trump and a member of the White House Medical Unit under President George W. Bush, told The Post that if Biden clinches the Democratic presidential nomination, he should “100%” have to submit to a mental competency test before the general election.
“He doesn’t need a [cognitive] screening test,” Jackson said. “He needs an actual cognitive battery of tests, objectively done, put on paper, and briefed to the American people by his physician.”
Like several other Congressional Republicans including Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.), Jackson is also calling for the 25th Amendment to be invoked:
It’s time to brush off the 25th Amendment. Joe Biden is completely mentally UNFIT for president, even his own DOJ says so! We’ve known this for a long time, but now Biden’s health has become a national security issue. REMOVE! pic.twitter.com/hzY1SU9Ykl

Jackson’s critics will say Jackson has “skin in the game” in this one and is not a credible source because he supports Trump’s presidential run. But despite the White House spinmeisters including Vice President Kamala Harris trying to paint Hur as a partisan wackjob, all the American people have to do is watch Joe Biden speak in public on any given day and see how he talks, walks, conducts himself, and has to be led around by his handlers in order to get through his engagements.
As far as I’m concerned, that’s proof positive that there’s a big problem.
It’s an uncomfortable conversation but a necessary one considering the incredibly powerful position Biden holds as leader of the free world. As Jackson reiterated, if Biden isn’t fit enough to stand trial, why on earth should he be given four more years in the Oval Office?
