This question came from the far-right media outlet NBC News and Kelly O’Donnell. President Biden was sounding pretty rough Monday night in California when he was campaigning for Gavin Newsom, and his cough continued into today’s remarks. O’Donnell wanted to know what was up with that cough.

.@PressSec is asked about Biden's repeated cough during press conferences:

“There’s a range of reasons” people cough.
We’ve all noticed it.

It's constant and he doesn't talk anywhere near the amount of time as previous presidents

Every time he issues some new comment he does that. It must be a nervous uncomfortable moment I noticed that also

It’s a “tell” that he is lying.

The MSM would be screaming at the top of their lungs…

Such hypocrites. The MSM used to be obsessed with the HEIGHT and HAND SIZE of the President

When does he get his required physical and when is the marathon press conference with the physician?
— Ted Leger (@leger_ted) September 16, 2021
We remember when the media accused President Trump’s doctor of lying about his weight after his physical. CNN really went after that story. NBC News’ Ken Dilanian even wondered if the president would step on a scale in public to prove it.
Man if Trump had a persistent cough @cnn would have their panel of medical experts analyzing every bit. Biden looks frail and co fused and yet not one elite media outlet will even mention it? What a joke.

And why is he constantly coughing into his hand? Didn’t @jaketapper tell him during the campaign not to do that?
— Joey Perez (@JoeyPerez89) September 16, 2021
Someone teach him to cough into his elbow and not his hand. I'm gonna puke 🤮
— Ihatepeople (@LadyBeaujolais) September 16, 2021
Maybe have someone teach him to cough into his elbow? He literally was making me gag

Why be concerned? It's not like he's a demented 78 year-old or anything.

Years of hair sniffing have created a huge hair ball. He just needs to gack it up.

It wasn’t a question about Americans trapped in Afghanistan or the crush at the border, but at least it wasn’t about ice cream. Maybe all the ice cream makes him cough. Maybe it’s dairy.
Call a (medical) doctor: President-elect Joe Biden seems to have caught Hillary Clinton’s cough https://t.co/OdubU0CQ5m
