White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was asked on Thursday about why President Joe Biden was coughing so much lately, and like most questions like this, she didn’t have an answer.
“We have a doctor who travels with him, obviously, who checks in if there is — it is ever warranted,” Psaki said. “And certainly, that continues to be the case, as it has been since the beginning of his presidency.”
When she was pressed again about the issue, she said, “I don’t think it’s an issue of concern. I think there are a range of reasons why we may need to clear our throat or we may have a little light cold. And that’s certainly something that presidents, elected officials, reporters, spokespeople can confront, but it’s not an area where we have a medical concern.”
Her non-answer led another reporter to ask when Biden was going to get a physical, but Psaki only said it would be soon and she would let everyone know how he did.
It seems like a good idea at this point to let Biden’s health go. After all, his replacement is a lot worse than he is.
