Former White House physician Ronny Jackson speculated that Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden “might need” cognitive testing.

“Remember the cognitive test I gave @realDonaldTrump?” Jackson tweeted on Tuesday. “The one he aced! Sounds like somebody else might need some testing done!! Scary!!”

Jackson, who served both former President Barack Obama and President Donald Trump as White House physician from 2013 to 2018, was reacting to a video posted by GOP chairwoman Ronna McDaniel showing Biden announcing himself as “a Democratic candidate for the United States Senate.”

“I’m here to ask you for your help where I come from you don’t get far unless you ask,” Biden told a South Carolina crowd on Monday. “My name’s Joe Biden: I’m a Democratic candidate for the United States Senate. Look me over …”

After Jackson’s famous 2018 hour-plus long briefing on President Donald Trump’s health, CNN medical correspondent Sanjay Gupta accused the White House of skewing the president’s exam results and insisted he has heart disease. (RELATED: Trump On Biden: ‘Not The Brightest Light Bulb’)

Several months later, Jackson’s nomination to be secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) was derailed after Democratic Montana Sen. Jon Tester released a document accusing him of over-prescribing medication, drinking on the job, and running a hostile work environment. Jackson has vehemently denied the claims and was later appointed to serve as President Trump’s chief medical advisor.

Jackson enters a long line of doctors and media personalities attempting to diagnose politicians, on both sides of the aisle, from afar.
