Former President Barack Obama was not happy a former White House physician criticized then-Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden in 2020.
And his angry email to his former physician was just leaked.
Before being elected to Congress, Rep. Ronny Jackson, R-Texas, previously served in the U.S. Navy and as the White House physician under three presidents: Obama, former President George W. Bush and former President Donald Trump.
In 2020, Jackson questioned Biden’s mental fitness —

According to Jackson, that prompted an angry email from Obama just 20 minutes later.

And he just leaked the contents to Fox News.
“I have made a point of not commenting on your service in my successor’s administration and have always spoken highly of you both in public and in private. You always served me and my family well, and I have considered you not only a fine doctor and service member but also a friend,” Obama wrote in the email.
“That’s why I have to express my disappointment at the cheap shot you took at Joe Biden via Twitter. It was unprofessional and beneath the office that you once held. It was also disrespectful to me and the many friends you had in our administration. You were the personal physician to the President of the United States as well as an admiral in the U.S. Navy. I expect better, and I hope upon reflection that you will expect more of yourself in the future,” Obama told Jackson.
“It’s awfully ironic now, considering [Joe Biden’s mental fitness] is all anyone, including the liberal media, can talk about,” Jackson reportedly told Fox News. “Let it be known, as the White House physician for the last three presidents, I was the first to say that we have a serious problem with this man’s cognitive demise, and he will not make it four years in office.”

“I’ve always said there would come a point where it wouldn’t be just me talking about it, but his own party, and sadly, that has proven to be the case. Joe Biden’s cognitive failures are on full display for the whole world to see,” Jackson told Fox.
Jackson told Fox News that the email was the last time he spoke to Obama. The Texas congressman has continued to question Biden’s mental acumen despite the “scathing” rebuke from his former boss.
Biden’s cognitive decline has gone too far. Even 60%+ OF DEMOCRATS want someone other than him in 2024. He’s unable to lead the country and EVERYONE knows it. It’s time for him to RESIGN!
