President Joe Biden has reportedly removed Dr. Sean Conley, who served as former President Donald Trump’s White House physician.
According to ABC News and NBC News, Conley will be replaced by Dr. Kevin O’Connor, who has served as Biden’s physician since 2009.
Conley came under fire for his lack of transparency when Trump was hospitalized due to COVID-19 in October. The doctor gave a confusing and inconsistent timeline for Trump’s diagnosis while framing the president’s condition in a rosy light.
Conley’s remarks claiming that Trump was “doing great” were later contradicted that same day by then-White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, who told reporters that Trump’s vitals were “very concerning” and that the president was “still not on a clear path to a full recovery.”
