Harris to become first woman with presidential power while Biden is under anesthesia for routine colonoscopy

President Joe Biden on Friday will temporarily transfer power to Vice President Kamala Harris while he is under anesthesia for a routine colonoscopy, White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters.

The Vice President will work from her office in the West Wing during this time,” Psaki said in a statement.
Biden arrived Friday morning at Walter Reed Medical Center to undergo a routine annual physical — su primer examen físico en el cargo como el presidente de primer término más antiguo en la historia de los EE. UU..
    It’s routine for a vice president to assume presidential powers while the president undergoes a medical procedure that requires anesthesia. Then-Vice President Dick Cheney did so on multiple occasions when then-President George W. Bush underwent routine colonoscopies.
      A principios de este año, former President Donald Trump’s ex-press secretary Stephanie Grisham heavily implied that Biden’s predecessor underwent a colonoscopy in a secret visit to Walter Reed in 2019, but kept it quiet to avoid transferring presidential power to then-Vice President Mike Pence.
          In her book, “I’ll Take Your Questions Now,” Grisham does not use the term colonoscopy but heavily implies that’s what the trip was for. She says Trump’s hospital visit, which stirred weeks-long speculation about his health was avery common procedure,” during whicha patient is put under.She also writes that Bush had a similar procedure while in office. Grisham writes Trump did not want then-Vice President Mike Pence to be in power while he was sedated, which was part of the reason he kept his visit private. He alsodid not want to be the butt of a jokeon late-night television, writes Grisham.
