President Joe Biden is traveling the country to tout his record and raise money before a potential 2024 reelection announcement, yet the White House has remained tight-lipped about his health, and is refusing to release his medical records.
Questions have come up as to why the White House has blown past their January deadline for the president’s 2022 physical exam, leading some to suggest that it could be evidence for hiding or delaying information about his mental fitness.
Washington Examiner reports, As Biden prepares to deliver his State of the Union address next month, President Joe Biden is touring the country to promote his record and raise money in advance of his likely 2024 reelection announcement.
As Biden faces his own classified documents controversy, the White House is being urged to also reveal the president’s health since the oldest commander in chief would be 82 at his second inauguration if he wins another term.
Due to the delay of Biden’s 2022 physical examination into 2023, Republicans have more opportunities to criticize him for his age and health before an expected reelection campaign.
While Joe Biden’s physical health has been in question, his mental health has left millions of Americans concerned.
Western Journal reports, Republicans, too, have connected complaints about delays with Biden’s physical examination to transparency issues stemming from the discovery of classified documents at his Washington, DC, think tank last November, which wasn’t made public until this month, just days before Merrick Garland appointed a special counsel to look into the matter.
While the White House insists that President Biden is ok, any person who can count to 5 for the past two years knows there’s simply no way Biden has the cognitive — possibly also physical — health required to mount a run for a second term in the White House.
There have been many criticisms of the elderly and seemingly fragile president for his constant gaffes and blunders. Scott DesJarlais (R-Tennessee) told the Washington Examiner it’s time for the White House to be more transparent about the president’s health and overall well-being.
Representative Scott DesJarlais stated “ I think it would be important to see a very thorough and comprehensive cognitive function study that is released with transparency to the general public,” he continued “The American people want to know that their commander in chief is fully capable of performing at the highest level to protect the safety and security of our nation,”
Joe Biden fell behind schedule for his 2022 physical exam, causing some to question his mental state and ability to govern, even going as far as suggesting dementia. This has provided the GOP with ammunition to accuse the President of being mentally unfit and hiding the truth from the public, despite a steady stream of actions taken since Biden’s election. It is clear the White House will come under increasing pressure to make the physical examination date known in order to quell any theories it appears to be attempting to dodge public scrutiny about Biden’s health.
