Congressman Ronny Jackson (R-TX13) posted on the social media app Parler on Sunday and said “Something’s not right!” referring to President Joe Biden’s physical and mental health. Jackson served as White House Physician under three previous U.S. Presidents including Presidents Obama and Trump and asserts that President Biden has an underlying health issue.
According to his post, Jackson says a major red flag is the lack of public appearances by President Biden. Saturday marked the 60th consecutive day that President Biden has not conducted a news conference with the White House Press Corps. This has raised concerns with some in the press that Biden is avoiding answering tough questions and may not be able to handle the pressure of the office.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki announced on Tuesday that the President will hold his first formal news briefing on Thursday afternoon, March 25. Some members of the press remain skeptical of the event taking place citing a March 3rd event where Biden appeared ready to handle some questions from reporters during a virtual news conference with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, but the video feed of the event suddenly cut off. “I’d be happy to take questions if that’s what I’m supposed to do, Nance,” Biden said, just before the event suddenly ended.
