Biden had a 'verbal check-in' with his doctor after debate: Report

 July 5, 2024

Stories are changing by the hour at the White House as it relates to the fallout from President Joe Biden's disastrous debate with former President Donald Trump. 

New reports emerging late in the week directly contradict information that previously came from White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre regarding medical exams.

According to Fox News, Biden apparently did have a "check-in" with his doctor after the debate, despite KJP stating Wednesday that he had not had any medical exams since February.

The news comes as the White House attempted to push back on Biden's bad debate performance, saying part of the reason -- among many reasons -- was that it was because he had a "cold."

What's going on?

Fox News noted the updated information regarding Biden's "verbal check-in" with the doctor.

President Joe Biden, 81, had a post-debate "verbal check-in" with his physician, Dr. Kevin O'Connor, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters aboard Air Force One on Friday, despite telling reporters that Biden had not had any recent medical exams earlier this week.

KJP attempted to clarify what that meant.

"He did have a short verbal check-in in the recent days about his cold, it wasn't a medical exam or a physical," Jean-Pierre said. "It was a conversation, and his doctor didn't think an examination was necessary."

Further attempting to downplay the development, KJP said the verbal check-in was not "unusual," adding, "That is not because of just this president, because it's all presidents and it is a very different experience than what we understand that the American people experience."

Fox News noted:

After Biden reportedly told Democratic governors during a private meeting at the White House this week that he doesn't get enough sleep and has to cut off working after 8 p.m., Jean-Pierre told reporters aboard the Air Force One flight to a Wisconsin rally that Biden "is human" and is taking "a balanced approach."

The excuses keep pouring in.

Calls to step down

Post-debate, Biden has been called out by members of his own part and from the traditionally Biden-friendly media to step aside to give Democrats a fighting chance in November.

Even though the White House has vowed that Biden will stay in the race, many don't believe the party has a choice other than to somehow replace him.

Former President Donald Trump's polling numbers are rock steady and pointing in the right direction while Biden's continue to plummet and shake in the wake of the poor debate.

Only time will tell if Biden does the party a favor and steps aside or if he's willing to sink the ship.
