President Joe Biden during a speech addressing the climate crisis in Massachusetts had a slip of tongue about his health condition when he 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.” The White House later retracted the gaffe, clarifying that the president had “non-melanoma” skin cancer before taking office last year.

As per NY Post, announcing new actions on climate change, Biden blamed emissions from oil refineries near his childhood home in Delaware for health problems in the area. He also shared an anecdote about his mother driving him to school as a child. He said, “Because it was a four-lane highway that was accessible, my mother drove us rather than us be able to walk. And 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."

However, the president's statement raised a few eyebrows among the netizens who were quick to react. A user said, “Cancer? This is either biggest bombshell in presidential history or the biggest gaffe." One user more pointed out, "Joe Biden accidentally telling everyone that he has cancer is the most Joe Biden thing he's done in a couple of days."

While another wrote, "My mom had Alzheimer’s & I am a cancer survivor. Joe Biden acts like he has dementia & said he has cancer. After the ridiculous uproar over Trump's health with no health problems & the callousness over Ivana’s death, anything said about Biden’s health conditions are justified."

Apart from people taking a dig at the slip-up, one commented about the location of the speech. The user said, "Why is @Potus in front of a dump while dissing Delaware & saying he has cancer? Worst President Ever. If I was working for @potus I’d leave this job off my resume. Losers.. waiting to release ex order on climate to coincide with hunter’s indictment? Thursday or Friday dump.. evil."

Glenn Kessler, who is the chief writer of The Washington Post's 'Fact Checker' feature, responded to the post from RNC Research. he said, "How dumb is this tweet? Check out Biden's medical report. Before he became president, he'd had non-melanoma skin cancers removed. Has no one at @RNCResearch ever had this common procedure?"

The report said, "These lesions were completely excised, with clear margins. A total body skin exam was performed for dermatologic surveillance. Several small areas of actinic change were treated with liquid nitrogen cryotherapy, but there are no areas suspicious for skin cancer."
