Some observers fear that Biden’s physical state may be representative of his mental state. Thirty-eight Republican lawmakers, along with Donald Trump’s former White House physician and now-Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-TX), wrote a letter in February to Biden, demanding that he take a cognitive test for fear that he may have Alzheimer’s disease.
Noting Biden’s “changes in mood and personality” and “forgetfulness,” the lawmakers said Biden’s cognitive ability has been declining and “is not just a recent trend” but has become more apparent “over the past two years.”
It is unknown whether Biden has undergone cognitive testing.
