‘Don’t jump!’ Biden’s embarrassing joke to cancer patients seated in balcony falls worse than flat

President Joe Biden’s desperation to set a winning tone for his administration that will dig his approval rating out of the ditch had him giving new meaning to the moniker “Dark Brandon” Monday as he broached the topic of suicide with cancer patients.

Having lost his son Beau Biden to brain cancer in 2015, no one challenges the notion that finding a cure for cancer is a deeply personal subject for the president. It is part of why former President Barack Obama symbolically placed his then-vice president at the head of the “Cancer Moonshot” initiative which Biden was promoting once again from the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum on the 60th anniversary of JFK’s address to Rice University.

During that speech, Kennedy said, “We choose to go to the Moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard.” However, Biden was far from such inspirational calls Monday when he suggested to cancer patients in attendance, “don’t jump.”

“And I want to thank all of you–the cancer patients, survivors, caregivers,” he remarked early in his speech before addressing attendees in the balcony, “and don’t jump from up there, okay?”

When Biden gets serious with an audience and mentions something serious, he will often say the phrase “not a joke” to hammer home his point. Such was not the case Monday leaving some to believe this “was his lame attempt at a joke.”

No one could be heard laughing after the president’s comment which brought forth a slew of negative reactions and confusion on social media.

Unfortunately, that wasn’t the only outtake from Monday’s address where Biden declared the “goal is to cut cancer death rates by at least 50 percent–at least 50 percent–in the next 25 years; to turn more cancers from death sentences into chronic diseases people can live with; to create a more supportive experience for our patients and families, and to update–to update our fight against the cancer.”

No, the president also announced, “the Defense Department…has the ability to calculate the Energy Department to a million billion calculations per second.”

Of course, no gaffe-riddled, head-scratching speech would be complete without Biden concluding with complete confusion as to what he is supposed to do after the teleprompters end.

No sooner had the president stated, “God bless you all. And may God protect our troops. Thank you for listening,” and set down the microphone he was holding despite there being two affixed to his podium, than the president began to shuffle back and forth across the stage seeking direction from his handlers.

If all of that isn’t enough to raise concerns about the serious likelihood of a cure for cancer being discovered under Biden’s leadership, perhaps the fact that the Biden Cancer Initiative that he had started while vice president contributed more to its executives than to finding a cure would cement that doubt.

As previously reported, “Before suspending its operations [in 2020] because of Biden’s presidential campaign, BCI reportedly raised $4.8 million in 2017 and 2018 combined. However, over $3 million of the raised funds went to paying ‘salaries, compensation, and benefits,’ while $740,000 went toward funding ‘conferences, conventions and meetings.’ Meanwhile, the nonprofit reportedly never once ‘cut a single grant to any other group or foundation during its two-year run.”
