‘President Harris’ Trends on Twitter After Psaki Announces That Biden Will Temporarily Transfer Power to Kamala While Under Anesthesia For Routine Colonoscopy

“President Harris” is trending on Twitter after White House press secretary Jen Psaki announced that Joe Biden, who turns 79 on Saturday, will temporarily transfer power to his Vice President Kamala Harris while he is under anesthesia for a routine colonoscopy.

Jack Posobiac quipped in a tweet on the trending phrase, “President Harris is trending. It has begun”

CNN’s Daniella Diaz tweeted about the news, “President Joe Biden will receive a routine colonoscopy today while he is undergoing a physical at Walter Reed.”

“The process, which requires anesthesia, means that he will temporarily transfer power to Kamala Harris, who will briefly become the 1st woman President,” Diaz explained.

Many, like Indian journalist Aditi Tyagi, are celebrating the situation as “history made.”

As CNN noted, Harris checks many boxes as the nation’s first female, first black, and first South Asian vice president who will break yet another barrier when she temporarily steps into the acting role. 

In a statement, Psaki reported Harris will work from her office in the West Wing while Biden is under anesthesia.
