President Biden apparently contradicted his press secretary by informing governors that he had a recent medical examination hours after the White House had informed reporters that the president had not had any recent medical checks.


During a Wednesday press briefing, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre made it clear to reporters that Joe Biden had not had a medical examination since his previous yearly physical when they were questioned about the president’s health.


“Has the president had any medical exams since his last annual physical in February?” Min Jung “MJ” Lee of CNN enquired.


“And got – and we were able to talk to the – to his doctor about that, and that is a no,” said Jean-Pierre.


Jean-Pierre said that the 81-year-old president had not undergone any sort of medical examination. “He hasn’t had any kind of medical exam?” stated Jung. “No,” was Jean-Pierre’s response. Hours before Biden’s meeting with Democratic governors at the White House on Wednesday night, Jean-Pierre made his remarks.


The New York Times reports that Biden instructed governors who had visited the White House physician to inquire about the status of the cold he claimed to have during his campaign’s debate with Trump.

In order to “get more sleep,” Biden allegedly informed governors that he would no longer plan events after 8 p.m., according to the site.


In response to inquiries over the apparently incongruous remarks, the White House provided Fox News Digital with the following statement:


The White House press office explained, “Several days later, the President was seen to check on his cold and was recovering well.” The president’s age and mental capacity have come under scrutiny from the media, legislators, and even Biden’s closest associates.


During parts of the presidential debate last week, Biden faltered, answering questions incoherently and with a hoarse voice.


Democrats and leftist media personalities seemed to be in a “panic” following Biden’s performance during the debate. The optics led to a full-on meltdown in Democrat-friendly media, with journalists at various sources reporting on scores of Democratic Party leaders who claimed Biden should consider declining his party’s nomination at the Democratic National Convention in Chicago in August.


A few strategists have advised the Democratic Party to move fast to replace Biden prior to the official announcement of his selection. Due to her low popularity among voters, Vice President Harris has been essentially ruled out as a possible replacement. Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan have both been mentioned as possible last-minute substitutes in the past.
