(DCWatchdog.com) – It has happened again, and it is seemingly happening more often.
This time, President Joe Biden told an audience about a significant conversation with the man who he claimed “invented” insulin.
There are two problems with that claim by Biden.
First, insulin was not “invented.”
Second, the man Biden claims he spoke with died before Biden was born.
As Fox News recounts in “Biden says he ‘spoke to’ man who ‘invented’ insulin, who died before president was born”:
“President Joe Biden told a room full of supporters in Hallandale Beach, Florida, on Tuesday that he spoke with the man who “invented” insulin and that it was never patented because it was supposed to be available to everyone…
“‘How many of you know somebody with diabetes and needs insulin?’ Biden asked the crowd. ‘Do you know how much it costs to make that insulin drug for diabetes? … It was invented by a man who did not patent it because he wanted it available for everyone. I spoke to him, OK?’“ [emphasis added]
But here’s the kicker.
“However, insulin, a hormone produced in the body, was never invented but was discovered by Frederick Banting.
“The late physician and scientist died at the age of 49 on Feb. 21, 1941.
“Biden was born on Nov. 20, 1942.” [emphasis added]
One observer noted, “At this point, it’s becoming clearer by the day that Biden is declining mentally.”
