President Biden is apparently an even bigger believer in dogs than we all previously thought … he says man’s best friend might be able to help cure cancer!!!
The Prez showered dogs with tons of praise Tuesday during a visit to Ohio State University’s James Cancer Hospital, saying … “Dogs may help cure cancer. Not a joke.”
Biden’s statement immediately raised a lot of eyebrows around the country, because even if ya love dogs — CURING cancer??? Watch the clip, because the President did say something 100% factual … which is that dogs can smell cancer, and some have been trained to give patients and/or doctors a heads-up.
But, that’s really detection, stretching it out to curing cancer … seems far-fetched. Sorry, Fido.
Biden’s remark harkens us back to a time last summer when another POTUS suggested ingesting bleach would be a great way to combat the coronavirus. He’s always claimed he was joking, but c’mon … we all saw the news conference.
Of course, some are defending Biden’s statement by pointing out early detection is key to a patient starting treatment … and therefore, giving them a better shot at remission. We guess one could make that argument.
We should all agree … dogs are awesome — it’s just a matter of how awesome.
