You know you’ve lost them when CNN calls you out.
Joe Biden has been known to tell complete and total lies about where he was and what he did during his 50 years in politics. He lied about so many things that it’s hard to keep track. Video after video shows Joe telling people stories that just aren’t true. He lied about marching in the civil rights movement and being put in jail trying to visit Nelson Mandela. Those are just two of so many times Biden lied.
The latest tall tale is below:
CNN reported that President Joe Biden claimed he visited the Tree of Life synagogue “when he never actually went there,” during a segment on CNN’s “At This Hour” with Kate Bolduan.
The New York Times article, Biden’s First Run for President Was a Calamity. Some Missteps Still Resonate, goes into how Joe Biden has always “embellished.” He’s repeatedly lied about key things that never happened. He was caught plagiarizing speeches back in the mid-80’s s and has continued telling outright lies about his accomplishments to this day.
The NYT reported in June of this year: “In 1988, Joe Biden was prone to embellishment. Hints of that linger today. But unlike then, his message to voters is clear: He’s a stabilizing statesman in a tumultuous time”
One early example: Even though his advisors reminded him he hadn’t actually marched in the civil rights movement, he continued telling the story
“When I marched in the civil rights movement, I did not march with a 12-point program,” Mr. Biden thundered, testing his presidential message in February 1987 before a New Hampshire audience. “I marched with tens of thousands of others to change attitudes. And we changed attitudes.”
And another doozy: Biden, FDR and the Invention of Television
In 2008, Biden tried to make a historical comparison between political leadership during the trying economic times of today and yesterday: “When the stock market crashed, Franklin D. Roosevelt got on the television and didn’t just talk about the, you know, the princes of greed.”There are several things wrong with that statement: First, the stock market crashed in 1929. FDR wasn’t the president; Herbert Hoover was. He served as president from 1929 until 1933, when Roosevelt, who went on to be elected to the top office four times, was inaugurated to his first term. Second, if FDR had been president in 1929 and wanted to make a public statement on the state of the economy, it likely wouldn’t have aired on television. Because no one had a television yet. The TV was introduced to the public at the 1939 World’s Fair in New York, almost ten years after the crash.
A story about a trip to Afghanistan is another lie from Biden:
The press covered for Biden, saying he was just “embellishing.”
