Dr. Marc Siegel, Professor of Medicine at New York University School of Medicine, downplayed concerns over Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden’s bloody eye during a CNN town hall event but did indicate that he was concerned over Biden’s mental health for a variety of reasons.
Siegel, who qualified what he said by noting that he is not Biden’s physician, said he believes that Biden’s bloody eye was a subconjunctival hemorrhage, which he said is not a major issue.
Siegel did note, though, that Biden’s mental health appears to be a problem which he said was “very concerning” to him as he thinks Biden is having problems with “thinking, orientation, and memory.”
“The other clip you showed where he appeared confused, that’s been happening with increasing amount where he seems to forget what state he’s in or the timeline of the Parkland school shooting,” Siegel said. “Things like that are really concerning to me and again, I don’t know the answer to why that’s happening.”
“I want to point something out: He had those aneurysms clipped surgically back in 1988,” Siegel continued as he proceeded to talk about how medical procedures have evolved since that time to deal with aneurysms.
Siegel noted that people who have had the medical problems that Biden has and who were treated the way that Biden was can have “cognitive changes” down the line, including “problems with thinking, problems with concentration, problems with orientation.”
