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.

“There’s a range of reasons” people cough.

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.

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.
