Harris briefly serves as acting president while Biden undergoes routine colonoscopy

This is suspicious. Normally, doctors are hesitant to do colonoscopies on patients his age because of the increased risk factors involved. I wonder if that was the real reason he was in the hospital.

BETHESDA, Md. (AP) — President Joe Biden briefly transferred power to Vice President Kamala Harris on Friday to undergo a routine colonoscopy at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center before resuming his duties, the White House said.

Biden drove early Friday to the medical center in the Washington suburbs for his first routine physical exam as president. Press secretary Jen Psaki said Biden would be under anesthesia during the colonoscopy and temporarily transferred power to Harris. Psaki said Biden resumed his duties after speaking with Harris and White House chief of staff Ron Klain at approximately 11:35 a.m.

Harris, the first woman, person of color and person of South Asian descent to be vice president, made history during the short time she served as acting president. She was scheduled to travel to Ohio later Friday, after Biden resumed his duties.
