Biden and Parkinson’s; Crisis Grows!

Joe Biden

( – The public scandal crisis surrounding Joe Biden’s alleged visits by a Parkinson’s doctor is exploding as the White House has officially confirmed that the specialist examined the president during the latter’s routine medical assessments.

Dr. Kevin O’Connor, the White House physician, issued a statement Monday evening clarifying his consultation with Dr. Kevin Cannard, a Parkinson’s expert, in January.

This consultation was one among eight visits Cannard made to the White House over the last eight months, as revealed by visitor logs, National Review notes in a report.

“Dr. Cannard was the neurological specialist that examined President Biden for each of his annual physicals,” Dr. O’Connor stated.

He also mentioned Cannard’s interactions with active-duty military personnel at the White House.

O’Connor emphasized, “President Biden has not seen a neurologist outside of his annual physical.”

The disclosure follows an episode earlier in the day when White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre declined to engage with questions about Biden’s cognitive health from the press.

Instead of delving into the specifics of Cannard’s visits, Jean-Pierre avoided the queries, stating a neurologist attended to Biden during his physical examinations.

“Has the president been treated for Parkinson’s? No. Is he being treated for Parkinson’s? No, he’s not. Is he taking medication for Parkinson’s? No,” she said.

Dr. O’Connor, who has donated to Democratic causes and is a longtime associate of the Biden family, also had dealings with Americore, a company involved with distressed rural hospitals, which made substantial payments exceeding $600,000 to Joe Biden’s brother, James.

This issue came to light through a letter from House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R., Ky.), who demanded that O’Connor provide testimony.

Earlier in the year, James Biden testified regarding O’Connor’s introduction of him to a group performing PTSD screenings at military facilities while he was employed by Americore.

Documents from Americore revealed that shortly after a hospital acquisition by the company, O’Connor and James Biden had convened with one of the hospital’s executives, as reported by Politico.

Cannard’s multiple visits were thrust into the spotlight following a New York Post report about his January meeting with O’Connor at the White House.

Subsequently, in the next month, O’Connor announced that Biden’s annual physical showed no signs of Parkinson’s.

However, it was noted that Cannard had made several donations to Biden’s presidential campaign, with the most recent occurring in May.
