Barack Obama’s former doctor just sunk Joe Biden’s campaign with a devastating diagnosis that he is not fit to be president.
Dr, David Scheiner was Obama’s doctor for 22 years and after he read Biden’s medical records he is sounding the alarm.
Joe’s health will only grow as a campaign issue as there is no realistic way for him to make it go away, but even more concerning for Biden is he is not connecting with the voters in any real way.
The more he talks the more he seems like the establishment’s last hope to regain power but that ship has passed. There is a new ruling coalition in America and the 2020 election will cement it for the next 20 years.
From The Washington Examiner:
“He’s not a healthy guy,” Dr. David Scheiner, who was Obama’s personal physician for 22 years before he became president, concluded after reading the records. “He’s not in bad shape for his age, but I wouldn’t say he’s in outstanding health. Could I guarantee he won’t have issues for the next four years? He has a lot of issues that are just sort of sitting there.”
A three-page letter from Biden’s physician concluded the former vice president is a “healthy, vigorous, 77-year-old” that is fit to be president. But the letter also revealed Biden receives treatment for an irregular heartbeat and high cholesterol and that he deals with acid reflux and seasonal allergies. It noted his already known history of aneurysms and that he took blood thinners.
The details from the letter made Scheiner, 81, concerned about Biden’s potential for strokes, and he said he would want to see results from an MRI or CT scan. Because Biden also used to have sleep apnea before getting surgery on his sinus and nasal passages, Scheiner said he would also like to review the results of a sleep study.
The report doesn’t mention an MRI despite the fact that Biden had two brain aneurysms in 1988, the first of which almost killed him. Earlier this year, the Washington Examiner interviewed Biden’s former surgeon, who vouched the 2020 front-runner was in the clear.
But the latest health information doesn’t mention details of any checkups that likely occurred to screen for future issues. The report also included mention of surgeries that hadn’t been previously disclosed, including one for an enlarged prostate. Previously, the public only knew Biden had received treatment for the disorder.
Dr. Kevin O’Connor, who wrote the assessment, also stated that Biden had “received multiple physical therapy treatments and surgeries, for various sports medicine and orthopedic injuries” but declined to specify any further.
“I had no idea Biden had such a history. My goodness gracious, he’s got a lot of history,” Scheiner said.
