Joe Biden Announces He Has ‘Cancer’ in Series of 25th Amendment-Worthy Moments – Opinion

Joe Biden made history by dropping the largest bombshell in American presidential history. He either did it or he committed the greatest gaffe. It’s probably the latter, as we’ll discuss, but I’m not sure that makes things any better.

While speaking in Massachusetts on Wednesday, the president claimed to have “cancer,” citing supposed oil slicks on the windows of cars. It seems that being exposed as a child to oil residue can lead to cancer later on in your life. I don’t know. None of what he says in the following clip makes sense, and it’s best to just take it for what it is.

You mean? What is this guy talking about? I find it absurd that he claimed oil was in so much of the air that windshield wipers were used to remove it. Did that actually happen back then? What medical science has shown that oil residues can cause cancer in children more than 50 years later?

Past that, Biden announcing to the world that “I and so damn many other people You can find it here cancer” seems like a pretty big blunder. I’m going to assume that’s what it was, but there should certainly be some questions asked about his comments later. He didn’t say he “had” cancer. He said “have,” which is present tense, and presidents don’t get to say they have cancer without some kind of clarification.

Of course, the “fact-checkers” are already hot on the case. The Washington Post’s Glenn Kessler quickly jumped in to chide the RNC for posting the clip, citing the fact that Biden has had cancerous skin tags removed in the past. To that I’d ask, does Kessler know what the word “have” means?

That wasn’t the only 25th Amendment-worthy moment of the speech, though. Biden made the claim that Glasgow is part of England. That will surprise those who don’t live in England. He also completely bungled the name of Rep. Jake Auchinloss before calling him…a “she?”

Totally normal stuff from the Commander in Chief, and I don’t mean that ironically. These are perfectly normal things for a man who is clearly in severe mental decline and doesn’t seem to remember the time of day. I don’t remember past presidents being so confused that they mistakenly claim to currently have cancer, but for Biden, it’s just another day in paradise.

These kinds of blunders aren’t just fun and games for Biden’s detractors either. They are damaging to America’s standing in the world. It is not safe to have a president who consistently advertises that he’s not up for the job he holds. These perceived weaknesses are noticed by adversarial nations, who take appropriate action. There’s a reason Russia stayed out of Ukraine until Biden took office.

Luckily, though, no matter what the situation is, Biden is married to a doctor, so I’m sure he’s going to be in the best of hands. Jokes aside: The president has either cancer or dementia. People who rush to defend the latest spectacle have two options.
