Joe Biden’s physical and mental fitness are becoming an issue.
More and more Americans can no longer ignore the obvious.
And Joe Biden’s doctor discovered one disturbing truth.
As American Patriot Daily reports:
The majority of Americans don’t think President Joe Biden is healthy.
A Politico/Morning Consult poll found 50% of Americans disagree that Biden is “in good health” which is a 29-percentage point shift against Biden compared to when the same question was asked a year ago.
A full 48% of those polled said that Biden wasn’t mentally fit while 46% of respondents think that Biden is mentally fit.
A new McLaughlin & Associates survey published in the Washington Examiner found that 59% of the registered voters want Biden to take the cognitive test and then make the results public.
But when Biden completed his first physical exam as president he didn’t appear to have undergone cognitive testing.
Biden’s physical was completed by Kevin C. O’Connor, D.O., who was the president’s doctor for 13 years prior to him taking office. It also included consultations with several of the Presidential Specialty Consultants from the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.
While Biden doesn’t appear to have undergone cognitive testing his doctor did point out two health issues of concern.
O’Connor wrote that Biden had experienced “increasing frequency and severity of ‘throat clearing’ and coughing during speaking engagements” but attributed it to his ongoing struggle with “gastroesophageal reflux.”
“My original assessment that gastroesophageal reflux is the source of the President’s throat clearing and coughing is supported by the findings and by expert consultation,” he noted.
He also was concerned about Biden’s gait.
O’Connor mentioned that Biden’s walk was “perceptibly stiffer and less fluid.”
He reported that Biden was experiencing “significant spinal arthritis, post-fracture ‘limp and compensation’ and a mild sensory peripheral neuropathy of the feet.”
While many conditions cause changes in gait, it can be a symptom of dementia.
CNN Chief Medical Correspondent Sanjay Guptawas questioned if Biden was tested for “mental acuity” like former President Donald Trump.
“It doesn’t seem like it. I read pretty carefully through the doctor’s report, and there was, they mentioned neurological exam, but that was more in terms of testing motor strength and sensation and things like that,” Gupta responded. “President Trump had something known as the Montreal cognitive assessment. It’s sort of a screening test for dementia. And, you know, that there was no mention of that sort of thing here.
“It is a constant point of discussion. I can tell you within the geriatrics community, I wrote this book last year about brain health, and one of the things that kept coming up was, should sort of these types of screening tests, cognitive screening tests, be more commonly done? And there’s many in that community who believe starting at age 65, there should be some sort of screening that’s done. Dr. Ronald Peterson, who runs the Alzheimer’s clinic at Mayo has been somebody who talked about that. But as far as we know, for President Biden, we didn’t see any kind of tests like that performed,” Gupta concluded.
