Americans have questioned President Joe Biden’s health since before he took office in January of 2021. The cause for suspicion has only grown over the course of his presidency with daily gaffes, erroneous stories, accidental on-screen naps, and awkward off-stage exits.
While all of these things are somewhat comical and have provided some laughable entertainment and really amazing memes, it’s fair to say that the Commander-in-Chief and leader of the free world should be fit for duty.
Last November, a Morning Consult/Politico poll showed that 44% of the 1,998 of voters who were polled believed that Biden was “stable,” while 50% said the opposite. Fast-forward a year and a really damaging, “Where’s Jackie?” gaffe later, 64% of voters who were polled are concerned about the President’s health according to an Issues & Insights poll from October of this year.
It isn’t hateful or unreasonable to question if Biden is fit for the immense workload, both physical and mental, that the President of the United States has to carry. In fact, the Democrats even tried to invoke the 25th amendment on former President Donald Trump to no avail when they believed he was “unfit”.
Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre had no answer as to when the President would be getting his physical after a reporter asked the question on Tuesday. Americans were told back in May that it would “happen by the end of the year” and with the year coming to an end, time is running out in order for the Biden Administration to make good on their promise.
Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-TX) is calling for the required testing to be done or a resignation from President Biden in a Nov. 19 tweet.
“Never in American history has the Media COVERED UP a president’s declining mental health. Biden is getting WORSE by the day and they’re purposefully SILENT. He needs to take a cognitive test or RESIGN!”, he tweeted.

Biden has hinted at a 2024 run for the presidential election as Americans are wondering if his health will make it through the year without a gaffe that ends in destruction. As we sit on the brink of war, Americans can’t “hope for the best” when it comes to the POTUS’s health.
