Biden, 77, is healthy and fit to serve as president, his doctor says

Former Vice President Joe Biden is healthy enough to undertake the duties of the U.S. presidency, his doctor said on Tuesday in a health report released by the Democrat’s campaign.

Biden, 77, is one of 15 Democrats seeking their party’s nomination to run against Republican U.S. President Donald Trump next year in a battle in which the incumbent and the top three of his would-be opponents are all septuagenarians.

Biden, who suffered a brain aneurysm in 1988, has no symptoms of similar problems, and while his heart beats irregularly, he is “completely asymptomatic,” said Dr. Kevin O’Connor, who teaches medicine and directs the Executive Medicine program for George Washington University Medical Faculty Associates.

The former vice president is taking anticoagulant medication for his heart and Crestor for high cholesterol, O’Connor said. He has had no cancer other than “localized, non-melanoma skin cancers,” due to extended exposure to the sun as a younger man, nor any history of diabetes, thyroid disease, hypertension, angina or any neurologic disorder, the doctor’s report said.

“Vice President Biden is a healthy, vigorous, 77-year-old male, who is fit to successfully execute the duties of the presidency, to include those as Chief Executive, Head of State and Commander in Chief,” O’Connor wrote.

O’Connor has been Biden’s physician since 2009, when he was assigned as physician to the vice president, the report said.

May be true, but what can be done to heal his pathological lying about many events of his past?

Call it a processing problem and move on. You don't have something against the handicapped, do you? /S

Since he is from Connecticut, I have often wondered if he suffers from Mad Hatter disease.?.? (Did he spend time in Danville?)

When does he take and release the results of his cognitive assessment test; the same one Trump was forced to take?

You don’t need to be healthy to be a figurehead for the global cabal that just rapes and pillages the worlds prosperity.

Just need to say things like, “SOB and he was fired”.

When leaving the Dr’s office, I understand Joe asked to no one in particular, “Who ordered the veal cutlets”?

Happily we won’t ever find out if the Doc is right or wrong.

This decaying corruptocrat is going nowhere.
