President Joe Biden sported a mystery mark on his right cheek bone on Monday at event with actress Selma Blair to celebrate the anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
The mark wasn’t visible on Sunday when the president spoke to reporters about the deal to fund the government.
But it could be seen on his face Monday as he, Blair, and her service dog Scout paid tribute to the landmark legislation for people with disabilities.
The White House did not immediately respond to Right Journalism inquiry about how the president got the discoloration. He has sported marks on his face previously for a CPAP mask he wears at night to help with his sleep apnea.
Here’s another interesting photo from the event:
President Joe Biden in recent weeks has started using a continuous positive airway pressure, or CPAP, machine at night to help with sleep apnea, the White House said Wednesday. The revelation comes after indents from the mask were visible on the president’s face as he departed the White House.
The president has disclosed since 2008 a history with sleep apnea, a potentially serious but common condition in which breathing can stop and start in the night. Biden used the machine Tuesday night, White House officials said. The imprint lines on his face were apparent when he left Wednesday morning for a speech in Chicago.
A CPAP machine is a motorized device that pumps air through a mask to open a sleeper’s airway. About 5 million Americans have tried them.
