As we reported earlier, Joe Biden made an odd comment using the present tense, claiming to “have” cancer, which raised the eyebrows of a lot of people.
The context was him talking about where he used to live in Delaware and he claimed that he (and others he knew) picked up cancer because of the pollution in the town which resulted in oil slicks on his mother’s windshield.
The White House has now tried to rectify the comments and put an end to any suggestions that he could be suffering from a current condition.
That is exactly what President Obama was talking about. https://t.co/8F0NGTei6f

Andrew Bates (White House Deputy Press secretary) claimed that Biden was referring to skin cancer previously treated.
But, the problem is that last year his doctor stated that he had been exposed to sunlight when he was younger. It doesn’t come from oil slicks on the windshield, even if that crazy story were true. So it doesn’t ultimately clean it up.

But on top of that, there’s another problem with this whole story. Biden has told the same story in the past — in April, on Earth Day. Except that he said the oil slicks, the pollution, and his asthma caused people who he did not know had cancer.
Take a listen and then compare
We’ve heard this story before…
BIDEN IN APRIL. “I have asthma. And 80% of people with whom I grew up have asthma.”

When he says “not a joke,” it’s one of his “tells.” It means “Here comes the lie, don’t question it too hard.”
So what’s the real story here?
But we know Joe Biden has a history of creating stories in his public lives. He’s made up all kinds of things that aren’t true and so it’s quite easy to believe that he was at it again here, exaggerating for effect. This would appear to be the most probable. But it’s also easy to believe that he would have issues that he would not be straightforward about regarding his health. We don’t know why his confusion and cognitive problems are so difficult to understand.
This is the problem of having someone like Joe Biden who lies all the time — you don’t take anything he or his people say on faith because you have every reason not to trust them.
If the sitting president of the United States doesn’t have cancer, that’s a relief. But there’s still the question of why he said he does. https://t.co/p9roA67MKE
