President Biden to Miss College Athlete Day Due to Multi-Day Root Canal Procedure
President Joe Biden will miss a College Athlete Day appearance due to a multi-day root canal procedure, the White House announced on Monday. According to the White House memo from Dr. Kevin O’Connor, the presidential physician, Biden underwent the first stage of the procedure on Sunday. The memo clarified that Biden was experiencing “further discomfort” on Monday morning, and is scheduled to undergo the second part of the procedure later in the day.
“The President identified that he was experiencing some dental pain in his lower right premolar,” the White House wrote in a memo. “Our Presidential Dental Team from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center… determined that endodontic treatment (root canal) was most appropriate.”
“The initial root canal procedure was performed at the time, with a plan for specialized endodontal follow-up in the near future. The president tolerated the procedure well. There were no complications,” the memo continued.
Biden had been scheduled to host a College Athlete Day celebration at the White House on Monday, but Vice President Harris was inserted as his substitute. The White House event featured the men’s and women’s NCAA championship teams from the 2022-2023 season.
Further changes to Biden’s schedule this week may be forthcoming, according to the White House.
The procedure is Biden’s first major health incident since the release of his general health evaluation in February. The physical test found Biden to be “vigorous” and “healthy,” but did not include information about any mental exam.
During his career, Joe Biden’s health has been a topic of discussion from the very beginning. As a former senator of Delaware for decades, then as vice president under former President Barack Obama, Biden has been one of the most visible public figures in America. His health has been put under scrutiny, leading him to release his health records to the public.
According to the February report, Dr. Kevin O’Connor wrote, “The president is a vigorous 78-year-old male who is in good overall health and who is fit to execute the duties of the presidency.”
However, the report did not include any information about any mental exams. The report did clarify that Biden is taking medication for acid reflux, allergy medicine, and daily aspirin. Furthermore, O’Connor wrote that Biden is “healthy and vigorous” and that he is physically active, maintains a healthy weight, eats a “healthy diet,” and works out routinely.
Contempt of Congress
Oversight Chair Comer is scheduled to hold FBI Director Wray in contempt of Congress over Biden doc alleging crime scheme.
News broke on Capitol Hill today that Republican Representative James Comer, the ranking member of the House Oversight Committee, is preparing to hold FBI Director Christopher Wray in contempt of Congress. The move is a response to the FBI’s refusal to provide the Oversight Committee with documents related to an ongoing investigation into President Joe Biden.
The Committee had requested the documents earlier this year after a whistleblower came forward with allegations that Biden was involved in a criminal bribery scheme. The whistleblower claimed that Biden had used his position as Vice President to benefit his son Hunter’s business dealings in Ukraine.
According to reports, the whistleblower is a highly credible source who has been used by the FBI since the Obama administration. The FBI has refused to provide the Oversight Committee with the documents, citing an ongoing investigation, but Comer says that the FBI is obstructing Congress’s oversight responsibility.
Comer has also stated that he believes the FBI’s refusal to provide the documents is evidence of a cover-up. “I think there is a crime scheme there,” Comer told Fox News. “I think the American people deserve to know what President Biden was involved in, what his son was involved in, and why the FBI is covering it up.”
Comer plans to hold Director Wray in contempt of Congress later this week if the documents are not provided.
