National Journal reporter George Condon asked the White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre when the president’s physician would speak to the press, saying that the handling of Biden's COVID is the "least transparency of any White House in 50 years on a presidential illness."
CONDON: “The question is, when will Dr. O'Connor come out, because to just put out a statement and shield them from questions would be the least transparency of any White House and 50 years on a presidential illness.”
JEAN-PIERRE: “Wow, I wholeheartedly disagree on your last statement. Wholeheartedly disagree on your last statement. So, we are doing this very differently, very differently that I would argue then the last administration and I'm happy to have that conversation with you. Number one, we did not see the president, because we are following CDC, guidance. And the CDC guidance is to make sure that we have minimal contact with the president and allow him to isolate.
