Biden briefly hands over power to Harris during a medical procedure.

WASHINGTON – President Biden received his first medical check as president on Friday, becoming the oldest commander-in-chief to receive a full medical check during his tenure. He briefly handed over power to Vice President Kamala Harris when he underwent a colonoscopy.

“As in the case when President George W. Bush used the same procedure in 2002 and 2007, and in accordance with the procedure set out in the Constitution, President Biden will transfer power to the Vice President for a short period of time while he is under anesthesia. “- said the press secretary of the White House Jen Psaki. “During this time, the Vice President will be working from his office in the West Wing.”

During the procedure, Ms. Harris became the first woman to serve as acting president for approximately 85 minutes. Mr Biden, 78, resumed his duties at around 11:35 am, Ms Psaki tweeted, and was “in a good mood” after the procedure.

The administration said that Mr. Biden used Section 3 of the 25th Amendment to temporarily transfer power. Under this regulation, the president was to notify Senator Patrick J. Leahy, a Vermont Democrat and interim President of the Senate, and Speaker Nancy Pelosi, that he was temporarily unable to fulfill his presidential duties. These emails were sent to both at 10:10.

The decision to offer transparency was a marked departure from the information offered by Mr Biden’s predecessor, Donald J. Trump, who unexpectedly and inexplicably visited the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in November 2019. During that visit, his aides said Mr Trump had a colonoscopy.

Mr. Biden’s physical examination and colonoscopy were performed at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. The administration said early Friday that it would release a more complete report of Mr Biden’s medical examination later that day.
