GOP Senator says Biden is not fit for office
Florida Republican Sen. Rick Scott blasted President Joe Biden following his latest physical, claiming he is "unwell."
Scott shared the concern during an interview with conservative leader Hugh Hewitt.

"I mean, I live in Florida, there's a lot of 80-year-olds that are very competent. He's just not one of them," Scott said of Biden. "I mean he's just not, he's not healthy person and he's not a good communicator."
He continued: "Let's be honest here. Joe Biden is unwell. He's unfit for office. He's incoherent, incapacitated and confused."
Dr. Janette Nesheiwat also spoke out after the president's physical failed to release how Biden performed on the mental status exam that is a standard part of the annual physical.

"How did he do on that? What was his score? I would like to know," she said. "Physical mental emotional health are all as equally important.
"The job of the presidency is a very demanding stressful job," she added. "We must ensure our leader is physically mentally and emotionally capable, especially when it comes to, decisions, regarding life and death and the overall health, safety, and well-being of our nation."
We need to know the FULL RESULTS of Biden's physical exam. What medications is he taking? Will there be a cognitive exam? If any President has needed a cognitive assessment, it’s this one! He’s the most incompetent president in history. You DESERVE answers to these questions!! pic.twitter.com/2QkGGQoEfh

A second opinion
Former White House doctor Ronny Jackson, who now serves as a Texas Republican congressman, also questioned Biden's health during a recent interview on "Hannity."
"What medications is he taking? Will there be a cognitive exam? If any President has needed a cognitive assessment, it’s this one!" he said.

The official letter from Biden's Dr. Kevin O'Connor said that Biden takes "three common prescription medications and two common over-the-counter medications." O'Connor referred to Biden as "a healthy, vigorous, 80-year-old male," calling him fit to lead as president.
The summary did not note which medications Biden is taking, the reasons for his prescribed medications or how long they have been taken.
The annual physical is an important factor as Biden is the oldest-serving president in the nation's history. He has often been noted for his gaffes during public remarks and apparently not knowing where he is or what is happening around him.
The calls for a cognitive exam come as Americans continue to question whether Biden is mentally fit to lead the nation and demand answers beyond the basic summary provided by the White House physician in his annual physical.
