Joe Biden is still yet to take a cognitive exam.
Joe Biden got his first White House physical back in November but no cognitive exam was done — despite widespread evidence Biden’s cognitive ability is failing.
O’Connor’s report did not include a cognitive exam of the president, as several of his critics have said should be done. Siegel suggested that other tests to evaluate Biden’s health could “rule out” things that could potentially be associated with cognitive decline.
“If we’re looking into neurological causes for the gait change, I don’t think the way they characterize that in the physical is sufficient,” Siegel said. “I want more information. I want to know what the MRIs show, and I want to know what the nerve conduction EMG shows to rule out things that are more extensive, that by the way, can be associated with cognitive changes like mental status, like dementia.”
“This is not a fully characterized neurological assessment of somebody with a gait problem, and I want to know why,” Siegel added, noting that normal pressure hydrocephalus, a condition relating to fluid on the brain, is a “possibility” for certain medical issues. “That can be associated with cognitive loss.”
Now, Obama’s White House Doctor Rep. Ronny Jackson has accused the Biden White House of “covering up serious issues with Biden’s cognitive health.”
Why won't Biden take a cognitive exam like President Trump did? This White House is covering up SERIOUS issues with Biden's cognitive health. NOBODY believes Biden is ok and the media is SILENT. You deserve to know if Biden is up to the job. Something IS NOT right with him!
