Biden Transmits Powers To Kamala Harris As He Undergoes Colonoscopy

Kamala Harris took over Joe Biden’s presidential duties as he underwent a routine colonoscopy at the Walter Reed Medical Center. As CNN reported, POTUS informed Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., president pro tempore of the Senate, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. about his annual physical on Friday, Nov. 19, which would include the colonoscopy. In the letter, he revealed that he would hand his responsibilities over to Harris.

The transmission of presidential powers is an ordinary practice. During George W. Bush’s administration, he turned over his duties to then-vice president Dick Cheney on two separate occasions. Each time, he underwent a medical procedure and resumed his presidential role within three hours.

In another instance, Bush’s father, George H.W. Bush, stepped up to the role of POTUS for nearly eight hours when President Ronald Reagan underwent colon cancer surgery in 1985.

Harris’ duties as acting president, however, stand out. With the transfer of power, she made history as the first woman to hold the power of the presidency. She is, however, no stranger to firsts.

In January, when Biden officially became president, Harris automatically became the first woman, the first Black person, the first Indian American and the first Asian American to swear into office and assume the role of vice president. She is also the first HBCU graduate to take on the title.

Her role as president was held for 85 minutes as POTUS reportedly underwent the procedure. She worked from her office in the West Wing during that time. According to White House press secretary Jen Psaki, he is now in “good spirits” and will continue on with the rest of his annual physical; a “written summary” of the physical will be shared at a later time.
