Via TTN:

On Friday, Joe Biden will temporarily transfer power to Vice President Harris as he undergoes a colonoscopy at Walter Reed Medical Center.

The Hill reports:

“As was the case when President George W. Bush had the same procedure in 2002 and 2007, and following the process set out in the Constitution, President Biden will transfer power to the Vice President for the brief period of time when he is under anesthesia,” Psaki said. “The Vice President will work from her office in the West Wing during this time.”

The White House will release a summary of the results of Biden’s physical later Friday, Psaki said.

The transfer of power while the president is under anesthesia is not unusual, as Psaki noted, though it was a point of contention during the Trump administration.

Former Trump press secretary Stephanie Grisham alleged that then-President Trump would not go under anesthesia for a colonoscopy when he was abruptly taken to Walter Reed in 2019 because he didn’t want to transfer power to then-Vice President Mike Pence.

Kamalalala must have been ecstatic with joy over finally becoming president for a few hours but never could perform any presidential duties because she couldn’t stop giggling.
