Biden’s doctor says he has hairline fractures in his foot after slipping while playing with his dog

WILMINGTON, Delaware — President-elect Joe Biden has hairline fractures in his “mid-foot” and will “likely require a walking boot for several weeks,” his doctor said in a statement Sunday, after Biden slipped while playing with his dog, Major, Saturday.

“Initial x-rays did not show any obvious fracture, but his clinical exam warranted more detailed imaging,” Dr. Kevin O’Connor said Sunday. “Follow-up CT scan confirmed hairline (small) fractures of President-elect Biden’s lateral and intermediate cuneiform bones, which are in the mid-foot. It is anticipated that he will likely require a walking boot for several weeks.”

Earlier Sunday, Biden’s office announced he was going to be examined by an orthopedist “out of an abundance of caution” after he twisted his ankle playing with the dog.

On Sunday evening, President Donald Trump tweeted, “Get well soon!”

Biden, who celebrated his 78th birthday on November 20, is set to be the oldest president in US history.

During the campaign, the Biden campaign released a summary of Biden’s medical history, which showed the former vice president was healthy and fit for the presidency.

The release included the results of a physical exam by O’Connor, Biden’s primary care doctor since 2009 and the director of executive medicine at The George Washington Medical Faculty Associates.

O’Connor wrote that Biden is “a healthy, vigorous, 77-year-old male, who is fit to successfully execute the duties of the Presidency.”

The Biden family has two dogs, Major and Champ, both German Shepherds.

The Bidens fostered Major from the Delaware Humane Association and made his adoption official in November 2018. Champ joined the Biden family during the presidential transition in December 2008, weeks after Biden became vice president-elect.

    1. nothing worse than a self loathing white person like you miss turner. I see you steered clear of the NM articles when you found out it was REPUBLICANS that passed a deal you loved. You are the worst kind of idiota out there, can’t admit when you’re wrong and sick with your bullshite. Calling everyone else racist when you are obviously the most ill-informed, backwards, hypocrite on this site. Stay salty and don’t check bidens fb status cause they changed it from pres-elect to politician……uh ohhhh. Go ahead with your “nazi, buffoon, filth, etc” you sound like a fool…. I really liked when you used your mia handle to praise yourself, that was gold.

      1. It wasn’t Republicans who passed the NM stimulus. It was all of them . Republicans and Democrats. I commented on it several times. In NM you have some real Republicans left that survived the orange buffoon corruption of the party.

  1. I call BS. The man is both physically and mentally incompetent. He probably fell on his own and they are using the dogas cover. Biden is unfit to hold any office. He can’t walk or think without assistance. His brain is rotten.

    1. I call BS on Trump. It’s obvious he lost a fair election. Republican governors, senators, secretaries of state and even Trump appointed judges have said so. Only reason he’s still crying foul must be because he’s got dementia and therefore is unfit for office. His brain isn’t rotten, it’s non-existent.

      1. You can’t bash someone if he is doing a good job and he hit that right out of the gate. No one is listening to your stolen election conspiracy theories. Just more white trash ignorance no one will care about.

        1. Obviously you can. President Trump’s been one of the greatest Presidents of all time and you bash him multiple times a day. Biden can’t even walk without breaking his foot and he can’t read a teleprompter without screwing that up. He’s the most incompetent Presidential candidate in US history. He will be bashed daiky because he will be the worst and most corrupt President in US history. Even worse than Obama

        2. I didn’t say anything about stealing anything. He’s llegitimate because apparently 80 million people in America are too stupid to cross the street by themselves, let alone be allowed to vote. It doesn’t add up.

      2. Not illegitimate. Biden won fair and square. Multiple judges (including Trump appointees) have said so. Even Guiliani has said in court under oath that he’s alleging zero fraud. Go ahead and bash Biden. I’ll probably join you on that. But calling it illegitimate makes you look stupid and like a cry baby.

        1. Again, I never anything about cheating. A lot of people who voted for Biden have already said they regret it. They admitted that they wished the media had provided accurate information and that social media hadn’t censored the corruption that is Joe Biden. The media stole this election by not providing accurate information. Media should NOT have that much power over elections. Biden is illegitimate.
