An official White House transcript of remarks by President Joe Biden on Tuesday seems to contradict a gaffe he made whereas talking about psychological sickness, when he appeared to assert his administration had ended most cancers.
The dementia is so unhealthy that now he thinks he cured most cancers.

Speaking about his “cancer moonshot,” his effort to discover a treatment for most cancers, Biden stated, “They looked at me like why cancer because no one thinks we can. That’s why. And we can. We ended cancer as we know it.”
Critics mocked Biden’s declare as each an instance of his signature hyperbole ,and an indication of doable psychological decline:
It’s an indication of how bitter and polarized our politics are that there is so little gratitude towards Biden for having cured most cancers or a minimum of ended most cancers as we all know it.
Some issues ought to transcend partisanship, and a President having cured most cancers ought to be one in all them. https://t.co/R0yHsIGIZB

But the White House transcript reads in a different way (emphasis added): “And they looked at me like, “Why cancer?” Because nobody thinks we will. That’s why. And we will. We can finish most cancers as we all know it.”
Biden has lengthy used the problem of most cancers analysis to drum up political help and donations — not all the time to good impact. The Biden Cancer Initiative, which he launched after his two phrases as vp (and later shuttered), spent most of its cash on workers salaries and little on analysis. Notably, Biden held a now-infamous assembly with Tony Bobulinksi to debate a three way partnership with a Chinese firm, organized by his son, Hunter Biden, whereas the previous vp was in L.A. for a convention to debate the Biden Cancer Initiative.
