As we were going to press this morning, word came that President Biden tested positive for COVID. He reportedly has very mild symptoms, and he’s certainly had the maximum number of vaccinations and boosters. But considering his age, I’m sure you will join me in praying for his swift and full recovery.
Many people were already reeling from the news that Biden seemed to announce on Wednesday that he had cancer. Luckily, his 24/7 verbal gaffe hazmat squad rushed to “clarify” that he did not.
Biden was in Delaware promoting his climate change executive orders when he claimed that he grew up near a refinery where the air left oil slicks on car windshields. Biden said, “That’s why I and so damn many other people I grew up with have cancer, and why for the longest time, Delaware had the highest cancer rate in the nation.”
As news agencies and the Internet went wild, the White House hurriedly announced that he was referring to past removal of a skin cancer and used the wrong tense. Some might point out that skin cancer is caused by the sun, which also causes global warming, but let’s not confuse the issue with a lot of science.
Fox News noted that in April, Biden made a remarkably similar claim, only then he said the oil was why he and “80 percent” of the people he grew up with had asthma. Dr. Marc Siegel pointed out that Delaware’s asthma rate is 1 in 10, not 80%. But we do know that Biden really did have asthma because it was the reason for his Vietnam draft deferments.
