Shameless media insinuates Biden has Parkinson’s

Shameless media insinuates Biden has Parkinson’s

On Monday, The New York Times ran an article detailing visits to the White House from a neurologist described as a specialist in Parkinson’s disease. Similar stories appeared on CNN, ABC News, and other outlets.  

These stories follow a story that ran on Saturday in the Rupert Murdoch-owned New York Post, which noted that neurologist Dr. Kevin Cannard made several visits to the White House over the past year. This included a Jan. 17 meeting with Biden’s personal physician, Dr. Kevin O’Connor.

The Post described their report emerging “as questions continue to swirl about the 81-year-old president’s mental health in the wake of his debate debacle last week with former President Trump.” 

None of the articles explicitly state that Cannard was at the White House to treat Biden for Parkinson’s, but all of them insinuate that Cannard was visiting for that purpose. The Times article adds reports from anonymous neurologists insisting that Biden is demonstrating symptoms of Parkinson’s. 

And when it came time for a press conference on Monday, reporters seemed angry at White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre for refusing to help in fueling their speculation.
