Joe Biden Fractures Foot Gets Well Wishes from President Donald Trump

joe biden fractures foot

President-elect Joe Biden suffered hairline fractures in his foot after he slipped and twisted his ankle.

President Donald Trump sent a ‘get well soon’ message to President elect Joe Biden, 78, Sunday night. The message was sent after the news that Biden fractured his foot while playing with his German Shepherd Major.

The Biden family adopted Major in 2018. Major was the first rescue dog to live in the White House.

Trump later retweeted NBC’s video and surprisingly wrote to Biden: ‘Get well soon!’

Joe Biden Calls Donald Trump’s Refusal to Concede an Embarrassment

Biden was seen by at Orthopedic Specialists in Newark, Delaware. According to sources, the future president will wear a walking boot for several weeks. Initially, Dr Kevin O’Connor said Biden ‘sustained a sprain of his right foot’ and that there was ‘no obvious fracture’. But a subsequent CT scan ‘confirmed hairline (small) fractures of President-elect Biden’s lateral and intermediate cuneiform bones, which are in the mid-foot,’ according to a statement from O’Connor. ‘It is anticipated that he will likely require a walking boot for several weeks,’ O’Conner added.

Thomas Jefferson’s romantic wrist wrangling
In the summer of 1785, Thomas Jefferson served as the U.S. minister to France. But the importance of this office didn’t stop Jefferson from leaping over a fence to impress a French woman. This rom-com maneuver ended badly for him, however, when he landed wrong and ended up breaking his wrist.

Thomas Jefferson’s fractures wrist
In the summer of 1785, Thomas Jefferson served as the U.S. minister to France. But the importance of this office didn’t stop Jefferson from leaping over a fence to impress a French woman. This rom-com maneuver ended badly for him, however, when he landed wrong and ended up breaking his wrist.

Jefferson described the incident in a letter to American artist John Trumbull: “It was by one of those follies from which good cannot come, but ill may.” Unfortunately, 18th century doctors didn’t have access to advanced wrist support items, so his broken bones were improperly set by French doctors, and his wrist remained deformed and painful for the rest of his life.

William Henry Harrison’s near-instant pneumonia

William Henry Harrison holds the unfortunate distinction for the shortest time in office at just 32 days in 1841. Harrison gave a two-hour inaugural speech on a cold, rainy March day and soon developed a cold that progressed into pneumonia.

While a lot has happened in medicine since that dreary day in 1841, we now know Harrison might have benefited from some modern cold, flu and allergy products to break up his congestion before it got infected. Sadly, he passed from complications, just nine days later.

Calvin Coolidge’s surefire sleep habits
The 30th President put a notable emphasis on his sleep cycle and was known to sleep 11 hours each day. Coolidge was known to retire to bed at 10 p.m., wake up between 7 and 9 a.m. and always made time for an afternoon nap lasting 2 to 4 hours.

Could you imagine a modern-day president having the time to have this sleep schedule? Chances are our current leaders are lacking quality sleep, and probably need a little help from FSA-eligible sleep aids to get rest in order to tackle the world’s problems with the right clarity and focus.

John F. Kennedy’s silent, but severe back issues
John F. Kennedy’s back issues were never revealed to the public until after his death, but they were a constant source of difficulty starting from a young age. Throughout his Presidency, JFK wore a back brace and took medication to manage the pain from his condition.

It turns out one of the most public-facing presidents was actually hiding a life-threatening disease. The notoriously camera-friendly Kennedy chose to hide his diagnosis of Addison’s disease — an incurable disorder of the adrenal glands. Continued here
