President Biden has replaced Dr. Sean Conley, the White House physician who gave misleading information about former President Trump’s COVID diagnosis last fall, CNN reports.
Biden will replace Conley with Dr. Kevin O’Connor as his doctor.
Conley made headlines when he admitted to offering rosy descriptions of Trump’s condition in order to boost optimism. But reports at the time said that Trump experienced serious conditions like shortness of breath that required supplemental oxygen.
According to CNN, Biden has a long history with O’Connor, who served as his physician while he was vice president. O’Connor is a retired US Army colonel in the 82nd Airborne Division, the 75th Ranger Regiment, and the United States Army Special Operations Command.
