As the deadline for President Joe Biden’s annual physical nears, the American people are growing increasingly concerned about his lack of transparency and accountability.
Despite White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre’s assurances that the physical will be completed by the end of the month, there has been no word on when the results will be made available to the public.
This lack of transparency is a concerning trend for the Biden Administration, which has a history of dodging questions about the President’s health. In the past, the White House has produced memos from Biden’s physician to the press, but they have never made Dr. Kevin O’Connor, U.S. Army Colonel and Biden’s physician, available to answer questions directly.
When Biden contracted COVID-19 last summer, Jean-Pierre and White House COVID-19 Response Coordinator Dr. Ashish Jha repeatedly refused to make Dr. O’Connor available to answer urgent questions about the President’s health.
This lack of transparency and accountability is not just concerning for Republicans, but for all Americans who have a right to know about the health of their Commander-in-Chief.
One reporter at the daily briefing last week asked, “Can we get the President’s physician here so we can not play the game of telephone?” Jean-Pierre’s response was less than reassuring, as she failed to provide any updates on the President’s physical and instead dismissed the reporter’s concerns as a “game of telephone.”
This lack of transparency and accountability is unacceptable and goes against the very principles of a democratic society. It is a concerning trend for the Biden Administration and a reminder of why many Republicans are passionate about holding the President and his administration accountable.
At a time when the nation is facing many challenges, including a divided Congress and a struggling economy, it is more important than ever for the President to be transparent about his health and for the White House to be accountable to the American people.
The least the Biden Administration can do is provide a timeline for when the results of the President’s physical will be made available to the public. It’s time for the President and his administration to be honest and upfront with the American people.
In conclusion, the lack of transparency surrounding President Joe Biden’s health is a concerning trend that raises questions about the accountability and honesty of the Biden Administration.
Republicans and all Americans deserve to know the truth about the health of their Commander-in-Chief, and it’s time for the White House to be transparent and accountable.
