White House denies reports of Biden being treated for Parkinson’s disease

THE White House has officially denied that President Joe Biden is receiving treatment for Parkinson’s disease. This clarification comes after reports surfaced suggesting that a doctor specializing in the disorder had visited the White House multiple times over the past year.

Speculation about President Biden’s health intensified following his stumble during a debate with Republican Donald Trump on June 27. The New York Times reported that White House visitor logs indicated Dr. Kevin Cannard, a neurologist specializing in movement disorders and a recent author of a paper on Parkinson’s, had made eight visits to the White House from last summer through this spring.

During a contentious press briefing, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre refrained from confirming Dr. Cannard’s visits, citing security and privacy concerns. She did confirm that President Biden had consulted a neurologist three times as part of his routine annual physical exams. However, she firmly stated that Biden is not being treated for Parkinson’s disease.
