'Acting President Kamala Harris' — Biden to Temporarily Transfer Power Ahead of Colonoscopy


President Joe Biden will be temporarily transferring power to Vice President Kamala Harris on Friday before going under anesthesia for a colonoscopy.

Harris will officially become the acting president.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki announced the transfer in a statement about the president’s annual physical at Walter Reed Medical Center.

“As was the case when President George W. Bush had the same procedure in 2002 and 2007, and following the process set out in the Constitution, President Biden will transfer power to the Vice President for the brief period of time when he is under anesthesia,” Psaki said. “The Vice President will work from her office in the West Wing during this time.”

The results of Biden’s physical, which is taking place one day before his 79th birthday, will be released later in the day.

Acting President Harris will continue to work from her office in the West Wing.

Harris will be just the third person to serve as acting president in history — and the first woman to do so.

Previously, former Vice President Dick Cheney served as acting president in 2002 and 2007 — each time for about two hours.

The first time an acting president was used was in 1985 as Ronald Reagan underwent surgery and H.W. Bush assumed the role.

Prior to surgery, Reagan sent letters to the speaker of the House and the Senate president saying that he “will be briefly and temporarily incapable of discharging the Constitutional powers and duties of the office of the president of the United States,” and so “Vice President George Bush shall discharge those powers and duties in my stead commencing with the administration of anesthesia to me in this instance.”

The transfer lasted approximately eight hours.

Former first lady chief of staff Stephanie Grisham claimed in her book that former President Donald Trump declined anesthesia when he got a colonoscopy during his time in the White House because he did not want to transfer power to then-Vice President Mike Pence.

    Americans didn’t get anesthesia for the financial colonoscopy this administration provided.

    I recall when President Bush transferred powers to Veep Cheney. It wasn’t all that impressive.

    The news story about Biden having a colonoscopy is fake it was leaked earlier today that he actually had surgery so doctors at Bethesda Navel Hospital could determine if Biden’s head could actually be pulled out of his ass. Unfortunately the surgery failed with one doctor reportedly saying “Man we tried everything we could think of but it just wouldn’t come out that thing is stuck up there like an old oak tree root in a rocky field” It was not stated as to whether or not any farther attempts to remove Biden’s head from up his ass will be made. One doctor saying “we simply don’t have the equipment here for that massive level of extraction. It’s going to take at least a D6 or D9 Cat with chains to even budge that swollen lump of crap” Biden will reportedly return to his executive duties later today with his head still firmly stuck up his ass.

    Maybe for one side… for the rest of us, it’s fear that she maintains the same corruption she exhibited in California.

    I remain optimistic that the only reason she doesn’t appear to have Biden’s levels of corruption is that she’s a better person, and not just because she hasn’t had the opportunity to be worse or is better at hiding it.

    Ironic, because she also got the job by having people stick things in her butt.

  7. WeaponizedMemes says:

    Fuck.

    Just watch her take a flame to burn what she can, while she can, if she can.

    Don’t think the Temp Prez will have anything to sign into law or any agenda items pushed forward in the limited time available. However with this regime anything is possible.

    Kamala called in Roto-Rooter to sub for the doctor just as the anesthesia kicked in to “go deep” and ensure that the magic “whoopsie” moment finally brings Herstory about.

    Little does she know that Bumbles is so full of shit that there’s no way he won’t be back in there, pooping in the chair behind the Resolute Desk and diddling America. How embarrassing for her, what with her already moving her stanky couch in and all…

  11. prcntm says:

    The only reason this is a big deal is because she’s a “she”. Otherwise no one would care about this.

  12. Herbolos says:

    If Harris is temporarily president, is she no longer VP?
    If so, who is temporary VP? Is it Pelosi? If it is Pelosi then is she temporarily no longer speaker?
    I am kind of curious what the rules actually are.

    President Kamala’s first executive order will be that all colonoscopes performed on citizens 75 and older will be done by Pfizer’s new Blowtorch-a-mectin laser scalpel. Joe will be the first victim… I mean user of the revolutionary ground breaking technology.

    On an unrelated news story, there is rumors of a major even being planned next week at the White House and the Chief Justice with a shiny new Bible will be attending.

    I would rather risk cancer. At least I know what it is and what it is about. With that cackling hyena- anything is possible. ( My apologies to hyenas everywhere. After all she makes me ashamed too. Ashamed to be a woman. She encouraged and has allowed human trafficking of children (and adults )to continue over the US border. IMO. Neither myself OR Hyenas would have done that… if we had the power to stop it. Even the animal kingdom has respect for its little ones.)

    This is it folks, it is entirely possible Biden will not come back from this
