Psaki then singled out O'Donnell as someone who asks about the matter regularly."I promise you. Kelly asks about this all the time. She's keeping us on our toes," Psaki said before leaving the briefing room.

O'Donnell brought up Biden's health at a briefing in September, although reporters can also ask questions in other settings."Many of us were in the East Room watching the president," O'Donnell said at that briefing."We've seen him on many occasions where he has a repeated cough. What is the situation with that cough? And is that a concern?"

That question prompted a follow-up from another reporter, who asked about the timing of Biden's first physical since taking office."I know this is an understandable question," Psaki replied."I don't have an update. He will get one soon. And when he does, we will make sure you all are aware of it and get the information."
