Kamala Harris is officially the president of the United States.
Under the 25th Amendment, Biden is no longer president and Harris is the first woman to hold presidential powers.
HOWEVER, it’s temporary and likely to last only several hours.
Biden made a trip to Walter Reed Medical Center for a routine physical and will also undergo a colonoscopy.
While he’s under anesthesia, Harris is acting president of the United States under Section 3 of the 25th Amendment.
George W. Bush underwent the same procedure in 2002 and 2007.
