Vice President Harris will temporarily be given the reins while doctors explore the mysteries of President Biden’s large intestine.
Not since the War of 1812 has the country been in greater existential peril . . .
Actually, not too much difference between the danger of Joe Biden as president and that of Kamala Harris.
According to the Washington Post:
President Biden will undergo a colonoscopy as part of a “routine physical” at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on Friday and temporarily transfer power to Vice President Harris while under anesthesia, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said.
White House officials have said for months that Biden, who turns 79 on Saturday and is the nation’s oldest president, would get an annual physical and be transparent about the results.
In a statement Friday morning, Psaki said the White House would publicly release a written summary of the president’s physical later Friday.
While at Walter Reed, Biden will go undergo a “routine colonoscopy,” Psaki said, and “transfer power to the Vice President for the brief period of time when he is under anesthesia.” Psaki noted that President George W. Bush followed the same procedure in 2002 and 2007.
Harris will work out of her office in the West Wing during the period she has powers of the presidency, Psaki said.
