Is Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden in a good state of health? Not according to Obama’s doctor of more than two decades, David Scheiner.
According to the documents, the former VP has an irregular heartbeat. On top of that, he suffers from high cholesterol.
Yet, a three-page letter from Joe’s personal physician claims the hands-on hugger is a “healthy, vigorous, 77-year-old” and fit to lead the free world.
Maybe he is; he challenged this guy to pushups:
Joe Biden lashed at an Iowa town hall after the man suggested he helped his son get a sweetheart deal in Ukraine and was “selling access” like President Donald Trump does:

Reminds me of something else:
But since Joe never planked and showed the man what’s what, who knows?
To hear David tell it, the hyperaffectionate candidate could have some ticking time bombs:
“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.”
Furthermore, as stated by the Times:
[The letter] noted his already known history of aneurysms and that he took blood thinners.
Dr. David would like to see some results from an MRI or CT scan.
Additionally, Joe suffered from sleep apnea — which can be deadly — before having sinus surgery. David explained that he’d also like to go over the results of a sleep study.
Oddly, the medical report makes no mention of an MRI, despite Joe’s two 1988 aneurysms. Those lighting storms of the head nearly took his life.
The records do indicate that the erstwhile Delaware senator “received multiple physical therapy treatments and surgeries, for various sports medicine and orthopedic injuries” in the past.
And there’s this:
The most recent doctor’s letter doesn’t address Biden’s vision, even though Biden blamed a contact lens mishap for his eye filling with blood during a town hall, nor does the letter address whether he has had multiple cosmetic surgeries.
Dr. David — who served as Barack’s M.D. for 22 years before he became president — was surprised by what he discovered about his former patient’s running mate:
“I had no idea Biden had such a history. My goodness gracious, he’s got a lot of history.”
The good doctor bottomlined it:
“He’s not a healthy guy.”
If David wants to really be stunned, he should check out how liberal-minded the near-octogenarian is — why, in August, he told a group of reporters that he’s so hip to black people, he’s never even felt uncomfortable around ’em.
Good thing — the stress could raise his cholesterol.
