There has been a lot of “concern” over the last two weeks regarding the president’s physical and mental health. Members of Congress and left-wing media concluded that Trump is not capable of fulfilling his duties. On Tuesday, Dr. Ronny Jackson said three words that dashed any hopes Democrats had of using the 25th Amendment.
As you know, talk about removing the president from office reached a boiling point last week after Trump referred to himself as a “very stable genius.” His comments prompted a Democrat lawmaker to craft legislation forcing presidential candidates to undergo a mental health exam.
However, being the man that he is, Trump decided to put an end to the debate. At his own insistence, the physical also included a test of his cognitive abilities. The outcome of all the tests appeared to confirm statements made by the president concerning his fitness to lead.
A Picture of Health
Dr. Jackson, who by the way is an Obama appointee, announced the results of Trump’s exam on Tuesday. Much to the dismay of leftists, the doctor confirmed that the president is in “excellent” overall health. At the president’s behest, Jackson answered questions in detail.
“Based on his cardiac assessment, hands down, there is no question he is in the excellent range,” Dr. Jackson told reporters at the White House briefing. “He has incredibly good genes, and it’s just the way God made him.” Summing up the results, Jackson predicted that the president will live “a long, long time.”
After discussing Trump’s physical health, the conversation turned to his mental well-being. The doctor administered the Montreal Cognitive Assessment, on which Trump scored a 30 out of 30. “I have absolutely no concerns about his cognitive ability,” he informed the media.
Concluding the briefing, Dr. Jackson made his most important statement by declaring Trump “fit for duty.” He subsequently reinforced his remarks, dashing any hopes the Democrats had of ousting the president from the White House:
“I think he will remain fit for duty for the remainder of this term and even the remainder of another term if he is elected.”
Looks like Trump 2020 is full steam ahead.
