Biden’s Health Assessed: Fit for Duty Despite Age

Clear Facts

  • President Biden’s physician, Kevin O’Connor, has declared that the president remains “fit for duty and fully executes all of his responsibilities without any exemptions or accommodations.”
  • Biden’s health conditions include obstructive sleep apnea, a-fib with normal ventricular response, hyperlipidemia, gastroesophageal reflux, seasonal allergies, spinal arthritis and sensory peripheral neuropathy of the feet. He takes three common prescription medications and three common over-the-counter medications for these conditions.
  • Despite being the oldest president in U.S. history, Biden is currently seeking re-election and appears likely to secure his party’s presidential nomination.

In a recent memo to White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, Kevin O’Connor, the physician to the president, affirmed that President Biden is in good health and capable of carrying out his duties. He stated, “This patient’s current medical considerations are detailed as above, and remain stable and well-controlled. They include obstructive sleep apnea, a-fib with normal ventricular response, hyperlipidemia, gastroesophageal reflux, seasonal allergies, spinal arthritis and sensory peripheral neuropathy of the feet. For these, he takes three common prescription medications and three common over-the-counter medications.”

“President Biden is a healthy, active, robust, 81-year-old male, who remains fit to successfully execute the duties of the Presidency, to include those as Chief Executive, Head of State and Commander in Chief,” O’Connor added.

During a press briefing on Wednesday, Jean-Pierre confirmed that Biden’s doctor and neurologist do not believe the president requires a cognitive test.

Biden, who holds the record as the oldest president in U.S. history, is currently seeking re-election. If successful, he would be 86 by the end of a second term. Despite this, he appears poised to easily secure his party’s presidential nomination.

He recently emerged victorious in the Democratic presidential primary in Michigan. Democratic Rep. Dean Phillips of Minnesota, who has been attempting to challenge Biden for the nomination, performed poorly. According to results reported by the Associated Press, over 81% of the votes were for Biden, while more than 13% were for the “uncommitted” option, and less than 3% went to Phillips.

Phillips received fewer votes than Marianne Williamson, who had previously announced the suspension of her campaign. However, Williamson announced on Wednesday that she was “unsuspending” her campaign.

Phillips remains undeterred, tweeting, “Dem primary voters and Party people don’t wish to entertain alternatives to Joe Biden – and I honor that. But that doesn’t change the fact Donald Trump is walking right back to the Presidency while we sleepwalk from it. I’ve dedicated 8 years of my life resisting that dangerous man, and it remains my singular mission to ensure his defeat at the ballot box in November. I’m not going anywhere and not suspending my mission. I will continue to assess the most proficient approach to protecting America, Americans, and our treasured democracy.”

Clear Thoughts (op-ed)

President Biden’s physician, Kevin O’Connor, has recently declared that the president remains “fit for duty.” While it’s reassuring to hear this about the oldest president in U.S. history, it raises concerns about the Democratic party’s reliance on an aging candidate.

Biden, currently seeking re-election, would be 86 by the end of a second term. Despite his physician’s statement, age-related health issues cannot be ignored. It’s alarming that the Democratic party appears to have no viable alternative to Biden, as evidenced by the recent primary results in Michigan.

The lack of a strong contender within the Democratic party might pave the way for a potential Trump return to the presidency. This calls for serious introspection among Democrats, who must recognize the need for new, energetic leadership to protect America and our democracy.

      The above statements prove to me that is a democrat is not under oath, they will lie and lie, with a straight face. That is the culture they live with daily. They are as evil as any human can be. There are evil people in the republican party as well, but not as many and most have a conscience, so another person can tell if they are not telling the truth. Democrats, mostly, have no conscience.

        Everyone needs to be sure and remember that Doctors name a never use him if he is that inept in saying Biden doesn’t need a cognitive test, apparently not a very good Doctor.

      Touche’ Betty. The FBI investigator deemed him unfit to go to trial, but the Medical Doctor who has more creedence to make a medical decision finds him physically fit to hold Office. Let the Trial begin. Apparently Chris Wray and Merrick Garland didn’t talk to the Doctor before his report came out…lol.

      Biden/Obama have really destroyed our republic. both Democrats and Rinos have been complicit. It has been all about the money they got from Special interest groups. It was Nancy’s responsibility to provide for the safety of the congressional buildings as that is the job of the Speaker of the House which she was at the time of Jan 6. Those in charge wanted this to happen and there were outside influences (FBI, plus others)to make sure that people were let into the building. On the video, certain people removed the barricade, unlocked the doors to the building and motioned for people to come in. I saw it on T.V. in real time as everything was happening. Trump had requested National Guard troops ahead of time, but Pelosi and Bowser both refused it. Look no further to those responsible. I do believe that Trump loves America. When you see tapes from a number of years ago, his patriotism shows.

      OK, what do you impeach Joe Biden for? Running against Donald Trump in 2020? It seems to be that’s all you have…in your cult-controlled minds, no one should ever be allowed to run against Donald Trump, the all-wise, all-knowing, ethical, and honest man filled with manly vigor…well you folks seem to believe it. At least there is no cult of Joe Biden. He’s not perfect, but nobody is, your beliefs about Donald Trump notwithstanding.

    Either Biden is unfit to stand trial for his misdeeds (too many to recap here) because he is a well meaning but confused elderly man with an uncertain memory recall and therefor not sound enough to serve another term as President, or he IS fit and therefore needs to stand trial for the issues of corruption that he has been charged with. Either way he is not fit to serve as President, either at present or in the future. The man cannot remember where he is, what he is supposed to be doing, or who he is talking to. He cannot even manage using note cards. He is not fit to sit in the oval office, no matter how far up the dark place you stick your head in order to support his candidacy for President.

    If he is fit to be President of the United States, then he is fit to go to trial. He has done so many impeachable things since taking office. Unbelievable!

    Why does everyone ‘THINK’ that he is incompetent? He’s perfectly fine. He’s playing “STUPID” for a reason. He “is” a distraction. A simple, STUPID, DISTRACTION. So was Obama, and Clinton, and Bush & Bush. Are we seeing a TREND yet? “N.W.O”. THAT, is where we are headed. “Biden” is not the REAL President. NEVER has been. NEVER, will be.WHEN WILL THE AMERICAN PUBLIC, “WAKE UP” ??????????
