ABC News Medical Correspondent: ‘Glaring Omissions’ In Biden’s Physical Exam

Based on ABC News’s chief medical correspondent, the information the public has been provided surrounding President Joe Biden’s physical health may not tell the full story.

The 81-year-old Commander in Chief visited Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on Wednesday, spending over two and a half hours at the facility to conduct a physical exam. Dr. Kevin O’Connor, the physician for the president, wrote positively about the physical well-being of the American leader.

“President Biden is a healthy, active, robust, 81-year-old male who remains fit to successfully execute the duties of the presidency,” the memo from O’Connor claimed.

While the news would be a massive positive for Biden and his camp, numerous skeptics are questioning whether the physical exam was fully conducted.

Dr. Jennifer Ashton, the chief medical correspondent for ABC News, appeared on “The View” on Friday to discuss whether the current president would be fit to maintain his position, though she noted that she is not his official doctor.

While she attempted to give some credit to Biden, noting that she couldn’t perform the job herself at 54 years old, she still noted that there were major “glaring omissions” in the report that was released to the public.

“We do what’s called a review of systems any time we do a physical exam on someone,” the female doctor explained. “That includes not only just general neurologic evaluation but a mental evaluation, a screening for depression or psychiatric illness, mental illness, anxiety — not in there. Cognitive exam — not in there.”

Critics of the Democratic president have long called for him to take a cognitive exam, pointing to his potentially declining mental acuity as one of the biggest reasons he may no longer be fit to serve.

Former President Donald Trump noticed the lack of a cognitive exam in the results, calling for the president to take one.

“Crooked Joe Biden must take a Cognitive Test. Maybe that way we would be able to find out why he makes such terrible decisions,” he wrote on his Truth Social on Thursday. “I took two of them, and ACED them both (no mistakes!).”

“The View” co-host Joy Behar attempted to push back against Dr. Ashton, asking “The question is, can he do the job, and it looks like he can.”

“I am not his physician, but again, he does have a qualified physician, and it was a thorough report, but something is missing,” the doctor replied.
