Given the number of mishaps President Joe Biden has had since winning the 2020 Presidential election, the White House is used to dealing with the backlash. Just in his first year, the Biden administration worked around the clock to present Biden as both confident and capable. And keeping up with his same antics, President Biden stunned reporters on Wednesday when he suggested he had cancer.
Holding a press conference to announce a new funding bill worth $2.3 billion and aimed at fighting global warming, President Biden stated, “Guess what? The first frost, you know what was happening? You had to put on your 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. For the longest time, Delaware had the highest cancer rate in the nation, but that’s the past.”
For over the past year, critics of President Joe Biden questioned his health and mental capacity, so when he admitted to having cancer, many wanted answers. As usual, the White House was quick to fix the mishap, admitting that the President wasn’t stating he had cancer, but fought skin cancer in the past.
Moving past his latest blunder, President Biden also said he was pushing numerous executive orders that would help the fight against global warming. “This is an emergency, and an emergency, and I will look at it that way. I said last week, say it again, loud and clear. As president, I’ll use my executive powers to combat climate change, the climate crisis, in the absence of congressional action.”
While President Biden promotes climate change and several other liberal agendas, many Democrats don’t want to see him run again in 2024. Although it is unknown who will run for the Republicans, Biden has been adamant about seeking another term in the White House. But with the GOP having top names live Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis, the Democrats might be looking for a younger, more agile candidate.
Nicole Farrier, a registered Democrat who voted for Biden, explained, “I went from living a comfortable lifestyle to I can’t afford anything anymore. I’m just going to come out and say it: I want younger blood.”
