On Friday, President Joe Biden raised concerns about his health by speaking in a hoarse voice while coughing and mumbling his way through his speech regarding the disappointing November Jobs Report that was below expectations.
Biden was audibly raspy in his speech, and he paused to cough several times. Fox News’ Peter Doocy then asked him: “Mr. President, your voice sounds different. Do you feel okay?
Biden stated that it was “just a common cold” and he’s tested every day for Covid-19.
Biden stated, “What I have are a grandson and one-half year old who loves to kiss his mom,”
Beau Jr., Hunter’s youngest son seemed to be the President.
Biden also sound raspy when delivering his remarks Thursday.
Concerned about rumors being dispelled, the White House issued an official statement regarding President Trump’s illness.
“As you can see, the president has experienced increased nasal congestion.” This can be heard in his voice and he is feeling the colloquially well-known ‘frog in one’s throat,” the president’s doctor Kevin O’Conner said in the statement.
“Investigation consisted of a complete respiratory panel, which included 19 common respiratory disease agents, including COVID-19, flu, and streptococcus to name just a few… All these tests were negative.
Jen Psaki, White House Press Secretary, insists that Biden follows proper Covid protocols.
‘I can assure that the president observes every protocol… He wants to keep everybody safe in the White House.
Because of Biden’s cold symptoms, she said he was more likely to be tested for COVID than normal this week.
“He took over-the counter medication for a cold and maybe some cough drops, and he also took some tea.
The benign polyp was removed by the colonoscopy team two weeks ago.
A series of tests were also performed by the physician to determine if the president had frequent throat clearing. He also found that there was no evidence of cancer or polyps. His vocal chord appearance and function also remained normal.
Employers in the United States added only 210,000 new jobs last November. This is well below what economists predicted.
It’s a sign that companies are still cautious as the coronavirus pandemic drags on.
Biden praised the findings. Biden stated that the new report showed the greatest one-year drop in unemployment.
Biden stated that it was “just a common cold” and that he has been tested every day for Covid-19.
Biden declared, “What do I have?”
Biden is pictured below last Friday at Nantucket with his grandson Beau. He said that the child had caught a cold.
Biden has been listed in his medical records as having taken five different medications for allergy and other conditions.
The President Biden’s Medical Report reveals that he uses five medications to treat his allergies and lower the risk of stroke.
The report also noted that there are no known allergies to medication.
Apixaban (Eliquis)Anticoagulant medicine used to prevent and treat blood clots.
Rosuvastatin (Crestor)A statin is a medication that lowers ‘bad’ cholesterol while increasing ‘good.
Fluticasone/azelastine (Dymista)Nasal spray to prevent itching, runny nose and wheezing due to allergies.
Fexofenadine, AllegraAn over-the-counter medicine to treat symptoms associated with allergies
Famotidine (Pepcid)G.E.R.D. – This over-the-counter remedy for stomach acid problems and heartburn is also effective in reducing the chance of developing ulcers.
He extolled the “incredible news” that the unemployment rate has fallen to 4.2%. “America is back to work,” he said.
The speech was immediately noticed by viewers who were interested in his unusual sound.
“What the hell is Biden talking about?” One Twitter user said that Biden sounds like Barry White.
Another wrote, “By the sound Biden’s vocals, he either is getting sick or has just entered puberty,”
The data was compiled before Wednesday’s announcement that the Omicron variant of COVID-19 was found in the U.S.
Jen Psaki, White House Press Secretary, was live on television and did a roundtable interview for MSNBC’s Morning Joe when the number fell.
“That number feels a bit off,” you say. It’s a bit off. Mika Brzezinski, co-host, asked because economists predicted that 550,000 new jobs would be created.
Psaki indicated that she was unable to comment on the Department of Labor report publicly at this point.
This sounds archaic. However, since I work at The White House, it is impossible for me to comment on these matters until 9:30 am. I will tell people what they can expect President Obama to keep saying month-to-month. It is “What we’re seeing” that these are positive trends.
Biden, President of the United States, welcomed this news and said that America is back at work.
‘Today, we have incredible news that our unemployment rate has fallen to 4.2% – a level experts didn’t expect us to achieve until 2024,’ he tweeted.
‘We’ve created 588,000 jobs per month on average this year – a record.’
Biden stated, “What I have are a one-and-a-half year old grandson who loves to kiss his pop,” Jill Biden is shown above kissing Beau.
Biden’s doctor declares him fit for duty in his first medical report public.
Joe Biden declared that he is fit for duty on Friday, after his routine medical exam which involved a colonoscopy, and an extremely detailed neurologic examination.
The White House released a six page memo by Dr. Kevin O’Connor to Jen Psaki stating that Biden is “fit for duty” and that he fully fulfills his duties without exceptions.
O’Connor’s first presidential medical report addressed two issues that have been the topic of much public discussion: O’Connor’s noted increase in clearing his throat and coughing as well as whether O’Connor’s stiffer gait is a sign of a neurological condition such a stroke.
The doctor said that no results were consistent with cerebellar and other central neurological disorders. However, he noted that the thorough neurologic examination was encouraging.
O’Connor stated that these were minor problems.
Biden has been experiencing an “increasing severity and frequency of ‘throat clearing and coughing’ during speaking engagements” over the past few months. The doctor agreed that it warranted a thorough investigation.
It was gastroesophageal acid, which causes him to clear his throat more frequently. His ‘occasional cough’ and sinus congestion are also caused by it. The report states that his symptoms can be exacerbated by eating. However, he has not been diagnosed with any stomach cancer or sinus tumors.
He turns 79 Saturday. His ambulatory gait is also noticeably stiffer than it was last year.
Dr. O’Connor admits that gait disorientation can be ‘included a variety neurological pathologies’. The tests Dr. O’Connor ran were used to confirm the diagnosis. He also mentioned that his team included radiology, foot and ankle specialists as well as movement disorder neurological specialists.
According to the memo, neurological tests did not reveal any signs of stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s, or Ascending lateral Sclerosis. However, it did identify mild peripheral neuropathy at both feet.
O’Connor writes that the causes of subtle gait shifts which he observed are a “combination” of severe spinal arthritis, post-fracture limp and compensation, and mild sensory peripheral neuropathy in the feet.
Biden acknowledged being stiffer in the mornings. However, it is less so throughout the day. The reason for this could be due to the many orthopedic and sports injuries he has had, such as when he was wearing a boot on the right side of his foot last year.
The memo states that Biden could ‘likely benefit’ from shoe orthotics and would be in physical therapy.
Biden had a colonoscopy and found that there was a benign-appear polyp. This could be easily treated.
The doctor stated that an “Histologic Evaluation is expected to be completed by the middle of next week.” The president has never been diagnosed with colon cancer.
Biden’s first treatment was by O’Connor when O’Connor was Vice President in 2009. His last medical report was made public in December 2019. O’Connor was a US Army Colonel who served with the 82nd Airborne Division.
Biden stands 5’11” and weighs 184. His BMI is 25. He had a blood pressure of 120/70. He said he didn’t smoke, doesn’t drink alcohol, and worked out 5 days per week.
The six-page memo on his health concludes with: ‘This patient’s current medical considerations … include a-fib with normal ventricular response, hyperlipidemia, gastresophagel reflux, seasonal allergies, spinal arthritis and mild sensory peripheral neuropathy of both feet. He takes two over-the-counter and three prescription drugs.
President Biden, at 78, is still a vigorous and healthy man who is well-equipped to fulfill the presidency’s duties, including the chief executive, head state, commander in chief.
This was the lowest unemployment rate since the outbreak of coronavirus. The October rate was 4,6%
American has regained 83 percent of its jobs that were lost to the pandemic.
Also, the wages were higher.
Ron Klain, White House Chief Of Staff tweeted outThe labor participation rate also saw an increase.
This is the highest level since March 2020 when widespread lockdowns and closures were triggered by the pandemic.
At 10:15 am Friday morning, President Joe Biden will speak at the White House on the topic of the Jobs Reports.
The numbers come after a brighter October, when employers added 531,000 workers to their payrolls.
October was the most popular month since July before COVID-19’s Delta version stalled employment.
Janet Yellen (Treasury Secretary) warned that Omicron might pose a significant’ threat to the global economic system.
In November the U.S. added only 210,000 jobs. This is 340,000 less than the 550,000 expected. It’s a clear sign that businesses are concerned about the possible coronavirus pandemic. This data was collected before Wednesday’s Omicron announcement.
Yellen stated that he hoped it wasn’t something that would slow down economic growth in a Reuters interview. ‘There’s It could create significant problems, even though there is still a lot of uncertainty. That is still being evaluated.
Yellen said that new strain of the coronavirus could exacerbate supply chain issues and rising inflation.
November’s modest employment gains could temper expectations that the economy was poised for stronger growth this quarter after hitting a speed bump in the third quarter due to the Delta variant.
Both consumer spending and manufacturing activity are strong.
However, the Omicron COVID-19 variant poses a threat to the brightening scene.
Omicron is not known much but it is possible that there will be a slowdown in demand and hiring, as outlined by Delta’s experience, which saw the fastest economic growth in over a year.
End September saw 10.4 million open jobs. Millions of Americans still remain out of work after the Pandemic Recession.
Many Americans are encouraged to retire early because of the strong stock market and high house prices, according to economists.
The rise in self-employment and massive savings has also been driven by households.
Biden has been plagued with sluggish poll numbers, exacerbated by the administration’s chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan.
Morning Consult polls this week found that his victories at the Congressional level have not helped to raise the needle.
In a poll conducted from November 28-30, he received 45% approval and 52% disapproval.
Biden tells a different tall story: He claims that he met Golda Mesir in 1967, while still studying law. She wasn’t an Israeli PM.
Biden, who was in law school at the time, told of a meeting with Golda Meir in 1967. She wasn’t the country’s leader and seemed to forget his record as a diplomat in Israel.
‘I have known every — every prime minister well since Golda Meir, including Golda Meir,’ Biden said during a Hanukkah celebration on Thursday.
‘And during the Six-Day War, I had an opportunity to — she invited me to come over because I was going to be the liaison between she and the Egyptians about the Suez.’
Six Day War, a war between Israel and Jordan and Syria, Egypt and Egypt that ended in Israel capturing the Golan Heights West Bank and Sinai Peninsula. The war lasted from June 5-10 1967 when Biden was in law school, and Meir wasn’t yet prime minister.
From 1969 to 1974, Meir was prime minister
Biden replied, “I sat down in front of her desk.” ‘And she had a guy — her staff member — to my right. Rabin was his name. She was always flipping the maps. She had that bevy of maps — sort of kept it — and it was — it was so depressing what she was — about what happened. She was very thorough.
Meir was Prime Minister from 1969 through 1974.
Biden seemed to confuse the Six Day War and a meeting that he had just before the October 1973 Yom Kippur War. Biden, who was 29 years old, had already been elected senator in that same year.
2020 brought new information about the meeting. According to an Israeli journalist NadavEyal’s memo, Meir was allegedly chain smoking as she described the threats regional security to Biden. Later, the president called this sit-down “one of my most important meetings in my entire life.”
Biden explained to Meir in Cairo that during previous visits he had, he learned that Egypt has accepted Israel’s military superiority.
Still, he said that Israel’s mass takeover of territory during the Six Day War had amounted to ‘creeping annexation.’
According to the memo, Biden claimed that Nixon’s administration was being “dragged by Israel” and that it was difficult for the Senate to hold real debate because of the fear of Jewish voters.
Biden suggested Meir forfeit strategic areas of no strategic significance to reduce tensions in the area. Meir disagreed and lectured him about the issue.
According to the official who recorded the meeting, Biden showed respect for Meir and was eager to learn. But, Biden displayed a passion and made comments about his inexperience as a diplomat.
Several weeks later, Egypt, Syria and Israel attacked Israel. In defense of their allies, the US and Soviet Union eventually joined them.
The Soviet Union started to replenish munitions for Egypt, Syria and other countries. In response to this, the US began military assistance to Israel.
Israel held off any advances, and was eventually able to hold its territory. Egypt gave back the Sinai Peninsula years later in exchange for peace.
Biden fabricated another story weeks ago about a small fire in the kitchen that he claimed destroyed his Delaware house with his wife.
Biden talked to the crowd on November 18 from New Hampshire Bridge, about his recently signed bipartisan infrastructure program.
The president shared an amusing anecdote regarding a 2004 house fire that he experienced. Photographs taken of the Delaware property soon after the fire show that it is completely intact.
“Without the bridge, as I stated earlier, it’s a 10-mile trip just to get the other side,” he said. ‘And I know, having had a house burn down with my wife in it — she got out safely, God willing — that having a significant portion of it burn, I can tell: 10 minutes makes a hell of a difference.’
According to The Associated Press the 2004 fire Biden referred too was a small fire’ that had been contained to his kitchen.
Lightning struck and lit the fire.
Cranston Heights Fire Company Chief George Lamborn stated that the fire was under control within 20 minutes. “The fire was out in less than 20 minutes.
