White House Won’t Make Biden’s Doctor Available for Questioning

During a briefing at the White House Thursday afternoon, Press Secretary Karin Jean-Pierre and Biden COVID-19 Response Coordinator Dr. Ashish Jah were repeatedly asked when Americans will hear directly from Dr. Kevin O'Connor about President Joe Biden's current battle with the virus. Dr. O'Connor is Biden's longtime personal physician and was hired as Physician to the President last year.  


Dr. O'Connor issued a letter Thursday morning with details about Biden's symptoms but won't be made available for direct questioning by reporters.

"On questioning, President Biden is currently experiencing mild symptoms, mostly rhinorrhea (or 'runny nose') and fatigue, with an occasional dry cough, which started yesterday evening. Given that he meets U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) criteria for PAXLOVID, I have recommended initiating such treatment," Dr. O'Connor wrote. "The President is fully vaccinated and twice-boosted, so I anticipate that he will respond favorably, as most maximally protected patients do. Early use of PAXLOVID in this case provides additional protection against severe disease. He will isolate in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations. I will keep your office updated with any changes in his condition or treatment plan."


Jean-Pierre also failed to answer questions about when Biden started isolating. She refused to clarify whether it was when he started having symptoms Wednesday night or after he tested positive Thursday morning. She repeatedly stated the positive test was a result of Biden's regular testing regimen. 

When pressed about where Biden contracted the virus, especially given repeated claims he carefully follows CDC guidance, Jean-Pierre said it "doesn't matter."
