KJP grilled over reports of Parkinson’s specialist visiting White House

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was in the hot seat yesterday being grilled by journalists over reports that a Parkinson’s specialist named Dr. Kevin Cannard has visited the White House eight times since July 2023.

While Jean-Pierre refused to give names or comment on Cannard’s visits, she confirmed President Joe Biden has seen a neurologist three times as part of his annual physicals. But her answer wasn’t satisfying for some reporters.

CBS News correspondent Ed O’Keefe quickly grew frustrated with Jean-Pierre. He began shouting at her for refusing to answer questions about Dr. Canard even though his name appeared publicly in White House visitor logs.

Jean-Pierre called O’Keefe’s behavior “not acceptable” and “inappropriate.” She later insisted President Biden is not being treated for Parkinson’s in any way. Neurologist and lifelong Democrat Dr. Tom Pitts says – from what he can tell – Biden has all the hallmarks of the disease.
