Wow! April Ryan is blaming the attention on Joe Biden’s phony war story on President Trump.
This is quite a stretch and gets zero pushback from anyone on the panel.
It’s no secret that Ryan is a strong anti-Trumper but the over-the-top analogy is blatant bias and a lie.
Jim, what you have to look at…we are in a climate of lies being thrown at us from the president of the United States, and we’re so hypersensitive about issues of lies. People who are prone to gaffes, we are now holding them to the same standard, putting a bright spotlight on…looking at it as a lie, like this president tells, versus saying, ‘Oh, that’s Joe Biden. He’s prone to gaffing.'”
“We have someone in the White House who we know is a liar point-blank, and now this person who is running for president is known to gaffe. He needs to get it right if he tells a story, but was it intentional? That’s the question. And I don’t think it was.”
Biden repeatedly told a phony story that Masrk Steyn hilariously spoofed on Tucker Carlson:
Mark Steyn is priceless in the video below saying Joe Biden’s latest gaffe is “classic Biden”…
Tucker Carlson can’t stop laughing as Steyn goes on telling what he considers a typical Biden story.
This all began when Biden was caught telling a fake war story to a crowd. The Washington Post even called Biden out on the fake story that Biden has told over and over to different audiences:
“In the space of 3 minutes, Biden got the time period, the location, the heroic act, the type of medal, the military branch & the rank of the recipient wrong, as well as his own role in the ceremony.” – Washington Post
Stein ends by saying the whole point of Biden telling the fake story is to “aggrandize Joe Biden”.
The controversy surrounds a dramatic military story that Biden told in New Hampshire earlier this month that he claimed to be the “God’s truth”. The fake story was an account of Biden’s decision to go to Afghanistan to honor a Navy captain.
According to The Washington Post, the story isn’t true. The clip below is a report from ABC News showing Biden telling the story:
Biden responded to the Washington Post allegations:
“I was making the point how courageous these people are, how incredible they are, this generation of warriors, these fallen angels we’ve lost. I don’t know what the problem is. What is it that I said wrong?”
@JoeBiden "war story" across the news right now? Well, evidently, he's told this same story several times in different venues! If so, that's not a cognitive error, it's a deliberate attempt to bring self glory & admiration from Americans! pic.twitter.com/bPJMnTVSi2

What’s wrong is that after speaking with more than a dozen military and campaign sources, the Post determined the event “never happened” and that “almost every detail in the story appears to be incorrect.”
