White House Abruptly Cuts Feed After Reporters Ask About Biden’s Health
Is everything okay in the White House? D.C. Staffers suddely cut the feed to a live stream of Joe Biden after reporters inquired about his health on Friday.
The audio and video of the call was cut short during a live-streamed event on gas prices, shortly after the White House occupant was reported as testing positive for Covid-19. Biden gave a thumbs up to the camera prior to the feed’s end.

He was inquired about his raspy voice last December, sounding physically ill during a White House Press briefing. Fox News reporter Peter Doocy asked if he was okay at the time, to which Biden replied, “what I have is one and half-year-old grandson who had a cold who likes to kiss his pop… but anyway, it’s just a cold.”
Biden additionally explained that he had received a negative test for Covid-19, thereby justifying his appearance in public as he displayed physical symptoms of an illness.
White House physician Kevin O’Connor weighed in on the matter in December, confirming that Biden is experiencing “increased nasal congestion,” and undergoing an affliction commonly known as “frog in ones throat.”
