On Monday, White House press secretary Jen Psaki committed to publishing a “comprehensive” report on President Joe Biden‘s health in the “near future.”

At the daily press briefing, a reporter asked her if she will “commit to releasing a comprehensive health report in the near future” and if the president will make a trip to Walter Reed Medical Center for a physical sometime soon. The reporter also noted that the last such report for Biden was released in 2019 during the presidential campaign.

“Absolutely,” Psaki replied. “I don’t have a timeline, but absolutely we will do that.  And I’ll check and see when he’s due to go back to the doctor.”

Questions surrounding the 78-year-old Biden’s age and health have resurfaced recently after he tripped twice and fell while trying to climb up the Air Force One stairs two weeks ago. He is the oldest person to ever serve as U.S. president.

While Psaki said last Monday that Biden was “100% fine”, she could not say whether he saw a doctor after the tumble.

Mavericks Owner Mark Cuban Buys Entire Texas Town

‘No Plans Yet’, Cuban Says About His Purchase of Abandoned Texas Town of Mustang

Forget becoming Mayor of a town, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is now the owner of a town.  Cuban reportedly purchased the entire town of Mustang, Texas. The town is virtually abandoned with no current residents, “and it’s been several years since the last two businesses, Wispers Cabaret strip club and Lion’s Den adult bookstore, operated” reports NBC News.

In a brief email explaining the purchase to NBC News on Friday, Cuban wrote “did it to help out a friend. No plans yet!” The town of Mustang is roughly 65 miles south of American Airlines Center, the home of the Dallas Mavericks.

According to Mike Turner, president of Dallas real estate firm J. Elmer Turner, the town had been for sale on the market about four years, listed after the principal owner Marty Price became ill and decided to sell.

Price was an attorney who died this past August; a devoted basketball fan with Mavericks floor seats. “Mark Cuban stepped up, and it was a natural for him to buy it” Turner told NBC News. “With his resources and imagination, I’m sure there are endless possibilities.”

Turner did not reveal the final sales price but admitted it closed last month for less than the $4 million asking price. Jerry Newsom, chief of the volunteer fire department in the neighboring town of Angus, told NBC Dallas-Fort Worth “we’re excited to have him as our neighbor here, and we’re excited for the growth and the potential it has.”
