Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy questioned White House spokesman John Kirby about President Biden’s health in light of the secrecy surrounding Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin’s hospitalization.

Doocy pressed on the administration’s credibility and potential future secrecy regarding Biden’s health.

Kirby acknowledged transparency issues but denied any intentional concealment, stating that the lack of information about Austin’s health was not purposeful. (Trending: Fox News Star Accused Of Major Scandal)

“Why should we believe anything that this administration tells us about anything ever again?” Doocy asked.

“I think we all recognize, and I think the Pentagon has been very, very honest with themselves about the challenge to credibility by what has transpired here how hard it was for them to be fully transparent with the American people. I think we all recognize that,” Kirby said.

Kirby admitted that “transparency issues” have been “recognized” following Austin’s vanishment.

“But if the administration is going to go to such great lengths to keep secrets about the defense secretary’s health, how can anybody be certain that the administration would not go to the same lengths to keep secret problems with President Biden’s health in the future?” Doocy asked.

Kirby said no one could “logically argue” that the administration hid Austin’s illness intentionally.

“If the administration made some sort of Machiavellian effort across the board to keep this from getting public, then I think your question has merit and certainly is a fair one,” he said.

“I don’t think it’s a fair one because that’s not what happened here, Peter. What happened here is the Secretary of Defense, for whatever reason, I can’t answer the question why, that information wasn’t shared. It wasn’t shared widely in the department and it certainly wasn’t shared with the interagency,” Kirby added.

The incident involved Austin’s hospitalization for a week due to complications from a medical procedure, with many Pentagon staff and officials unaware of his condition.
