President Joe Biden joked around with reporters on Thanksgiving when the 80-year-old president was asked when he would complete his annual physical.

‘Do you think I need it?’ asked the President. “Part of my investigation is already done and I will have it before the end of the year,” he then replied.

Biden made history Sunday by becoming the first American President to celebrate his 80th birthday.

The family celebrated with a birthday brunch hosted by First Lady Jill Biden as the extended Biden clan gathered in Washington to celebrate granddaughter Naomi’s wedding at the White House.

They’re now spending the Thanksgiving break in Nantucket — a place the President and First Lady have been visiting for the holidays since 1975.

‘Do you think I need it?’ President Joe Biden said when asked when he would complete his annual physical exam – after turning 80 last week. “Part of my investigation is already done and I will have it before the end of the year,” he then replied

Biden went to reporters and answered a few questions during a stop at the Nantucket Fire Department Thursday morning.

The President and First Lady brought two pumpkin pies to first responders.

They also brought their grandson, Baby Beau Biden, son of Hunter and his second wife Melissa Cohen.

Firefighters gave the two-year-old a toddler-sized plastic fireman’s hat.

The President, First Lady, son Hunter and his family, and daughter Ashley will spend Thanksgiving together in Nantucket, where one of the topics of discussion will be whether or not Biden should run for the White House again.

Biden has said it is his “intention” to run again.

The president ignored a question from at the fire station on Thursday as to whether the talks had taken place.

If the president runs again in 2024 and wins, he would be 86 years old at the end of his second term.

“So the President is in good health and living an active lifestyle. That’s from the doctor — he told me that,” White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters Tuesday when asked about Biden’s health after the milestone birthday.

“He will undergo an examination in the coming months and the results will be published in the same way as last year,” she said.

Biden’s doctor, Dr. Kevin O’Connor, on November 19 last year, released a letter to update the American people on the President’s health.

But unlike former President Donald Trump’s two doctors – who briefed the press on his physical and appearance Walter Reed when he had COVID-19 – O’Connor never answered questions from reporters.

When the president fell ill with COVID-19 in July and was required to isolate, O’Connor sent out letters detailing the president’s progress rather than appearing in the White House briefing room – much to the chagrin of some journalists.
