Former WH Doctor Ronny Jackson Calls for Biden Drug Test Before Debate

Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-Texas), a former White House physician, has called for President Joe Biden to undergo drug tests for performance-enhancing substances before and after his upcoming debate with former President Donald Trump. Jackson, who previously served under Presidents George W. Bush, Barack Obama, and Trump, suggested that Biden might be using drugs to enhance his cognitive performance. He has sent multiple letters to the White House requesting cognitive and drug tests for Biden, which have so far been ignored.

Jackson's demands follow his observations of Biden's performance at the State of the Union address and speculation that the President's recent visit to Camp David could be linked to medication adjustments. Jackson suggested that Biden might be using drugs typically prescribed for conditions like Alzheimer's or stimulants such as Adderall and Provigil. The White House has not directly responded to Jackson's latest request, although Deputy Press Secretary Andrew Bates previously addressed similar allegations by emphasizing trust in the President's capabilities. This controversy adds to ongoing debates about Biden's age and mental fitness as he seeks re-election.
