On Tuesday, President Joe Biden made a blunder of significance while campaigning for Charlie Crist for governor of Florida in the Miami neighborhood of Hallandale Beach.
During his speech, the President mentioned that he had a conversation with Frederick Banting, who is widely regarded as the person who developed insulin.
Biden offered the audience in Florida a rhetorical question along the lines of, How many of you know somebody who has diabetes and needs insulin? Are you aware of how much it sets you back to manufacture the insulin medication for diabetics?
One man came up with it and decided not to patent it so that it might be used by anyone. Okay, I talked to him.
The president's narrative has one major flaw: Frederick Banting passed away at the age of 49 on February 20, 1941, which is 21 months before Joe Biden was born (Nov. 20, 1942).
Here is one more problem with the speech that Biden gave on Tuesday: Insulin was never created by anyone. Instead, Banting made the discovery that insulin is a hormone that is created naturally in the body.
Another one of Joe Biden's embarrassing gaffes was detailed in an article that was published by Newsmax one month ago. This time, the gaffe included Jackie Walorski, a congresswoman from Indiana who had passed away earlier this year in a vehicle accident.
During the ceremony for the signing of a measure, President Joe Biden spoke to the crowd by speaking out and asked, "Where's Jackie?" before going on to another topic.
Nevertheless, his error in judgment was called out by both Democratic and Republican politicians, as well as the entirety of the Twitter universe.
A Democrat consultant who requested anonymity told The Hill earlier this month, It's not a nice look. And we are all aware that this does nothing but add fuel to the fire of those who criticize the president for being so old. [Biden, 79] needs to exercise extreme caution so that he does not provide the opposition with ammunition that is simple to use.
Additionally, Republican consultant and former member of President George W. Bush's administration Bruce Mehlman has stated his opinion that Biden gaffes are largely utilized by opponents as proof of maturity rather than for the substance of the words themselves.
The preceding is a summary of an article that originally appeared on Newsmax.
