Unlike in his final days on Twitter before being booted off (to be subsequently allowed back on after Elon Musk took over), Trump can say more or less whatever he wants on Truth Social, with no real fear of the social media platform silencing or censoring him. Former President and likely 2024 GOP candidate Trump has used that freedom to tear into his political enemies, particularly President Joe Biden.
Most recently, Trump did so in a post in which he argued that the Biden Presidency is more or less run by Team Obama types, hence his comments about Biden being Obama, and that Biden needs to take a cognitive test to see why he supports so many terrible policies.
In his hilarious post on Truth Social about the president, Trump said, “Whenever I sarcastically insert the name Obama for Biden as an indication that others may actually be having a very big influence in running our Country, Ron DeSanctimonious and his failing campaign apparatus, together with the Democrat’s Radical Left “Disinformation Machine,” go wild saying that “Trump doesn’t know the name of our President, (CROOKED!) Joe Biden. He must be cognitively impaired.” No, I know both names very well, never mix them up, and know that they are destroying our Country.”
Continuing, Trump then noted his cognitive test went very well and that he thinks President Biden should take one, saying, “Also, and as reported, I just took a cognitive test as part of my Physical Exam, and ACED it. Also ACED (a perfect score!) one taken while in the White House. Biden should take one so we can determine why he wants Open Borders, No Energy Independence, A Woke Military, High Inflation, No Voter I.D., Men playing In Women’s Sports, Only Electric Cars & Trucks, A Weaponized DOJ/FBI, and so many other CRAZY things!!!”
The post came after Trump released his doctor’s letter about his health, a letter which was generally quite positive about the former president’s current state, on President Biden’s birthday, a clear attempt to mock and positively compare himself against the current president.
In the letter, his personal physician, Dr. Bruce Aronwald, D.O., of Morristown Medical Group, said, “I have been President Donald J. Trump’s personal physician since 2021. During this time, I have conducted several comprehensive examinations, the most recent being September 13, 2023, and have supervised specialist consultations along with ancillary testing for screening and preventative health maintenance.”
Continuing, Dr. Aronwald added, “I am pleased to report that President Trump’s overall health is excellent. His physical exams were well within the normal range and his cognitive exams were exceptional. In addition, his most recent extensive laboratory analysis remains well within normal limits and was even more favorable than prior testing in some of the most significant parameters, most likely secondary to weight reduction.”
He then added, “Cardiovascular studies are all normal and cancer screening tests are all negative. President Trump has reduced his weight through an improved diet and continued daily physical activity, while maintaining a rigorous schedule. It is my opinion that President Trump is currently in excellent health, and with his continued interest in preventative health monitoring and maintenance, he will continue to enjoy a healthy active lifestyle for years to come.“
Trump’s comments about Biden line up with what former White House doctor and current GOP Rep. Ronny Jackson said about Biden’s health. He said, “I’ve been saying for quite some time now, when he was candidate Joe Biden, that I didn’t think that he had the cognitive ability to do the job.”
Continuing, he added, “He’s got these people that surround him that are inappropriately encouraging him to continue to run because it builds up who they are and what they do. But our border, our wars overseas, our economy, you know, it’s just a disaster right now. And he just can’t do the job. And it’s just on display every day that he’s not capable of doing this job anymore.“
