Why Biden Should Share His Health Updates with Americans

Credit: ABC News

Let’s talk about presidents and their health. It’s no secret that being the leader of a country, especially one as big and busy as the United States, is a tough gig. But should we really know everything about our president’s health? Absolutely.

Take a trip down memory lane with me. Woodrow Wilson and his bout with the Spanish Flu followed by a severe stroke? Yeah, that wasn’t his finest hour. Then there’s Franklin Roosevelt, bless his heart, dealing with some serious health issues while keeping it hush-hush. We’re talking sky-high blood pressure and heart problems that would make your head spin.

Now, fast forward to today. President Biden, a seasoned pro, has had his fair share of medical adventures too. Brain aneurysms? Yep, he’s had a couple. Plus, chronic atrial fibrillation, which sounds like a mouthful but basically means his heart marches to its own beat. Oh, and let’s not forget that stiff-legged walk, courtesy of some orthopedic troubles.

So, here’s the scoop. Dr. Kevin O’Connor, Biden’s physician, gave him a once-over about a year ago. The verdict? Nothing too concerning on the neurological front. But hold the phone, folks. There’s a catch. No mention of cognition or any fancy brain scans. And with all the recent hubbub about Biden’s memory slip-ups, it’s got folks like me scratching our heads.

Mixing up dates, confusing world leaders – it’s more than just a case of the Mondays. These memory lapses seem to be part of a bigger picture, one that’s not painting a pretty picture for ol’ Joe. And let’s be real, memory loss can put a real dent in your decision-making mojo.

Now, what’s a concerned citizen to do? Simple. Biden needs to roll up his sleeves and get himself checked out, top to bottom. I’m talking neuro evaluations, cognitive tests, the whole shebang. If everything checks out, hey, we can all breathe a sigh of relief. But if not, well, at least we’ll know where we stand.

And let’s not forget about Robert Hur’s report, adding fuel to the fire with talk of “poor memory.” But here’s the kicker – Hur’s not a doc. So, let’s put our minds at ease with some good old-fashioned medical reports.

Look, FDR and Wilson may have kept us in the dark, but this ain’t the stone age. We’ve got a right to know what’s going on with our commander-in-chief. So, Biden, buddy, do us all a solid and spill the beans. We’re all ears.
