On Tuesday, the White House gave an update on President Biden’s COVID-19 infection, saying he felt well enough to resume his exercise regime – but White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was unable to answer what that regime even was.

I mean, look, I think it says a lot, and I spoke to Dr. O’Connor earlier today, that the president is feeling, you know, well. And we should be thrilled and wanting him to have that negative test. I’m sure you guys are waiting for that as well, so you can see him in person, that he is doing well enough to say that he wants to work out. I think it’s been reported in the past that he likes to do weights, and, you know, he likes to do the treadmill. I don’t think I’m sharing anything confidential here. But yeah, I think, it brought a smile to my face when I saw that he wants to work out.”
