    The damn broke during the White House press briefing Monday as reporters demanded answers from White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre about President Joe Biden’s medical records and who the Parkinson disease specialist met with at the White House. 

    The press corps demanded answers from Jean-Pierre why a neurologist and Parkinson’s disease specialist was mentioned on the White House log, as earlier reported by the New York Post. 

    The press secretary said Biden has seen a neurologist three times during his physicals, but refused to answer further about the visits due to “security reasons.”

    Jean-Pierre said she must respect the privacy of the doctors and the thousands of personnel who receive White House medical care.

    In answer to CBS News Senior White House correspondent Ed O’Keefe questions, Jean-Pierre deflected. 

    “Ed, I also said to you for security reasons, we cannot share names. We cannot share names,” Jean-Pierre reiterated.

    “You cannot share names of others he would’ve met with, but you can share names in regards if someone came here in regards to the president,” O’Keefe shot back.

    “We cannot share names of specialists broadly. From a dermatologist to a neurologist. We cannot share names,” the White House Press Secretary  said. “There are security reasons—Ed, I hear you. I cannot from here confirm any of that because we have to keep their privacy. I think they would appreciate that too,” as posted on X.

    “It is public,” chimed in NBC News White House correspondent Kelly O’Donnell, who is past President of the White House Correspondents’ Association along with other reporters.

    Jean-Pierre held her ground by refusing to answer. 

    “It is public information,” O’Keefe jumped in.

    “I hear you, guys, guys, guys, hold on a second. There’s no reason to go back and forth and get this aggressive,” Jean-Pierre insisted.  

    O’Keefe said he is “miffed” by the information provided to the Press Corps about the president’s health and the public information in the White House logs.

    “You answer incorrectly and then you have to come back and clean it up,” O’Keefe said.

    “I didn’t answer the question incorrectly,” the press secretary said. “That is not true. I was asked about a medical exam. I was asked about a physical. That was in the line of question that I answered and I said no, he did not have a medical exam [after the presidential debate], and I stand by that. The president stands by that. He had a verbal check in, that’s something that the president has a couple times a week. A couple times a week.”

    “Now in regards to Dr. Kevin Cannard,” O’Keefe pushed.

    “And I am telling you, right now, that I am not sharing confirming names from here. It is for security reasons, Ed. It doesn’t matter how hard you push me, it doesn’t matter how angry you get with me, I am not going to confirm a name. It doesn’t matter if it’s in the log. I am not going to do that from here. That is not something I am going to do,” the press secretary said firmly.  

    Cannard, a neurologist and “movement disorders specialist,” reportedly met with Biden’s physician Kevin O’Connor at the White House on January 17 and visited the residence clinic on March 28, according to the New York Post, citing White House logs. 

    An expert for Parkinson’s disease reportedly visited the White House eight times throughout an eight month span between July 2023 and March 2024.

    Jean-Pierre said that Biden is not being treated for Parkinson’s, according to Time Magazine.
