Vice President Kamala Harris made history yet again today, even if only for a brief amount of time. Harris is no longer just the first woman to become vice president. She is now the first woman to assume presidential power.

While President Joe Biden was under anesthesia for a routine colonoscopy during his annual physical today, he temporarily transferred his presidential power to Harris.

“As was the case when President George W. Bush had the same procedure in 2002 and 2007, and following the process set out in the Constitution, President Biden will transfer power to the Vice President for the brief period of time when he is under anesthesia,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said. “The Vice President will work from her office in the West Wing during this time.”

Congratulations to VP Kamala Harris on this unprecedented achievement.
