MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell dinged the Biden team Monday for their lack of transparency about the president-elect’s foot injury over the holiday weekend.
On Sunday, Biden’s doctor announced that the president-elect had twisted his ankle the day before while playing with his dog, Major. The injury will likely require Biden to wear a walking boot.
“Initial x‑rays are reassuring that there is no obvious fracture and he will be getting an additional CT for more detailed imaging,” Dr. Kevin O’Connor said in a statement. “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.”
