Chris Whipple, author of a Joe Biden biography, stated on Tuesday that he believes the Biden administration is the most “scripted” White House in modern American history, told The New York Post.

Last year, Whipple published “The Fight of His Life: Inside Joe Biden’s White House,” which delves into the first years of Biden’s presidency. For this book, the White House granted Whipple significant access to Biden’s inner circle, providing him with a unique perspective on the administration. In an interview on CNN, Whipple shared his insights.

“The thing to understand here is that the DNA of this White House is controlling the narrative. And I can tell you, having written a book about it, that this White House is the most battened down, buttoned up, scripted White House in modern history,” Whipple alleged during the interview with CNN anchor Abby Phillip.

Whipple emphasized that the White House’s narrative control extends to limiting access to Biden himself, even for his biographer. “While I was able to interview in real-time almost all of Joe Biden’s inner circle, when it came to Biden himself, the deal was: Written answers to written questions,” Whipple revealed. “I’d never heard of that before.”

Phillip asked Whipple if he viewed this extreme level of control as a “red flag,” to which he responded affirmatively. “You can look at it two ways: This is obviously a White House either with something to hide or just obsessed with controlling the narrative,” he explained.

Further into the interview, Whipple disclosed that he had spoken with one of Biden’s “closest friends,” who believes the president needs to undergo comprehensive cognitive testing. “I will tell you that one of the president’s closest friends thinks that Joe Biden should go up to Walter Reed, have a complete neurological exam, release the results, and let the chips fall,” Whipple said.

He added, “Now, I don’t think that friend has said this out loud to Joe Biden because that’s a hard thing, even for a close friend, to tell him. But I don’t think he’s going there without a major push.”

Although Biden has reportedly not undergone extensive cognitive testing, the White House maintains that the president is in good health. This ongoing narrative management and the calls for cognitive testing reflect broader concerns and speculations about Biden’s health and capabilities as he continues his presidency.

Whipple’s revelations provide a rare glimpse into the tightly controlled environment of the Biden administration, highlighting the lengths to which the White House goes to maintain its desired narrative.
