President Biden told reporters Wednesday that he has cancer.
“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,” Biden said.
The White House quickly refuted the president’s claims.
White House spokesman Andrew Bates referred The New York Post to a tweet from Washington Post columnist Glenn Kessler, who noted that Biden had “non-melanoma skin cancers” before he took office.
But Biden blamed his cancer on oil pollution in Delaware.
As of now Biden is cancer-free — allegedly.
Nothing to see here, folks. Just keep walking…
