Dr. Ben Carson is one of the nation’s leading neurosurgeons, his opinion on these matters really throw weight behind it. This isn’t just some political move. Check it.
Speaking to Fox News host Sean Hannity Thursday evening, Dr. Ben Carson — one of the nation’s foremost neurosurgeons — expressed concern over the health of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
“Certainly as a person gets older, the number of medical conditions that we have to watch for increases, which is one of the reasons that we strongly suggest as you get older that you have at least an annual examination,” Carson began.
“If you’re going into a very important position like this, it’s critical,” he continued. “And that information should be something that we should have access to, because it’s very important in terms of making that decision.”
Carson’s comments came in response to a new Drudge Report headline, which claimed that as many as 59 percent of Americans believe Clinton should release her medical records.
“Also, recognize that the presidency is not a nine-to-five job. It is extraordinarily grueling and you need to have everything going for you,” said Carson.
“And also the mental capacity. There are standardized mental examinations, many mental exams, about 30 questions. You could get a very quick assessment in terms of what’s going on,” Carson added.
