US President Biden went for a colonoscopy Friday and his doctor pronounced his brain is fine.
So now he and his inner sanctum have let it be known he plans to run again in 2024, when he would be 82.
No one really believes any of it.
For one thing, where is his cognitive test? That’s the question increasingly on American minds. It’s clear, from his often bizarre or befuddled behavior, that something is not quite right with the president, which is why 59 percent of voters want him to take a cognitive test and release the results, according to a new McLaughlin & Associates survey published in the Washington Examiner.
But the six-page letter released by the White House Friday night, revealing the results of his first official physical, omitted any reference to Biden’s cognitive faculties.
We got a lot of detail about things we could have done without from White House physician Kevin O’Connor.
A polyp, for instance, was excised from the presidential colon.
Biden doesn’t have Parkinson’s disease or multiple sclerosis, O’Connor concluded from an “extremely detailed neurologic exam,” which was “reassuring.”
He did raise concerns about Biden’s “ambulatory gait” — the way he walks, or more accurately, shuffles. “The President’s gait appears to be perceptibly stiffer and less fluid than it has been in the past,” he said.
O’Connor speculates that the change may be related to Biden breaking a foot last year tripping on a mat when he got out of a shower while pulling his dog’s tail, supposedly.
He concludes the cause is just osteoarthritis in Biden’s spine.
