President Biden revealed that he has cancer during a speech about global warming in Massachusetts on Wednesday, either as a gaffe or as a stunningly casual health announcement.

Biden during his speech on climate change said, “I and so damn many other people I grew up with have cancer” because of oil pollution in his home state Delaware.

As he outlined new executive action to combat global warming on Wednesday, Biden warned that climate change is a “clear and present danger” to the nation.

“Climate change… is literally, not figuratively, a clear and present danger. (…) The health of our citizens and our communities is literally at stake,” he said at a former coal-fired plant in Massachusetts being converted to generate wind power.
