First lady Jill Biden left Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on Thursday evening after undergoing a procedure on her foot to remove an object she stepped on that apparently became lodged.

Biden’s press secretary Michael LaRosa said in a statement that the first lady “underwent a successful procedure on her left foot to flush out debris from a puncture wound," according to a White House pool report.

LaRosa said it is unclear what the object was that caused the puncture.

“The wound is now clean, free of infection and it is anticipated that it will heal nicely. She and the president will depart Walter Reed en route to the White House shortly,” LaRosa said.

Biden stepped on an object on the beach in Hawaii last week. The first lady visited Hawaii on Sunday after leading the U.S. delegation to the Tokyo Olympics.

While in Hawaii, the first lady visited a vaccination clinic at Waipahu High School, touring the facility before giving remarks. She then joined military families at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam for a barbecue.

Biden returned to Washington, D.C., on Monday.

President Biden joined his wife for the procedure on Thursday, leaving for the military hospital in Bethesda, Md., just outside D.C., after giving remarks at the White House on the coronavirus pandemic.

Who cares most people just take care of these at home not spend thousands of dollars to have Dr. look at it. TAX PAYERS DOLLARS


Does anyone really care about this? I personally wish all the bidens were back in the basement! They’re a disgrace to America!

Although I really disagree with her husband and his politics , I am going to give her a pass because they attacked Milania out of hate for her husband. So I will stick to my morals and not attack the First Lady. ( I have one legitimate complaint though, I believe it’s cruel that she allows her obviously sick and struggling husband to be used, and manipulated. It’s elder abuse and she’s wrong for that)
