President Joe Biden may have either made another teleprompter gaffe or accidentally announced his current health condition.
During a Wednesday climate change speech, Biden had a peculiar way of phrasing a story; making it sound as if he currently has cancer.
“…my mother drove us and rather than us be able [sic] to walk. And guess what? The first frost, you know what was happening? You had to put on the windshield wipers to get, literally, the oil slick off the window. That’s why I and so damn many other people I grew up with have cancer and why (unintelligible), the longest time, Delaware, had the highest cancer rates in the nation…”
Mainstream media is saying it is simply a misinterpretation, and that his statement was “misconstrued”. Glenn Kessler of the Washington Post linked to Biden’s White House bill of health and said, “How dumb is this tweet?”
A memorable Biden campaign moment was his promise to cure cancer if elected president.
During a campaign event in Iowa, Biden said, “That’s why I’ve worked so hard in my career to make sure that… I promise you if I’m elected president, you’re going to see the single most important thing that changes America, we’re gonna cure cancer.”
