Biden Confesses To Making Up Details Of South African Story; ‘I Wasn’t Arrested. I Was Stopped’

Published

Former Vice President Joe Biden confessed that he wasn’t actually arrested once in South Africa after stating he was at several campaign events.

On three different occasions during the past month, Biden told a story about being “arrested with our U.N. ambassador” while attempting to meet with South African leader Nelson Mandela back in the 1970s. However, now-former ambassador Andrew Young has refuted that story.

Biden has gone on to personally acknowledge that his recollection of the event was not accurate during an interview on CNN.

“I wasn’t arrested. I was stopped,” he said as he again recounted traveling to South Africa with members of the Congressional Black Caucus disembarking from the plane.

“They led me off first and moved me in a direction totally different. I turned around, and everybody, all the entire black delegation was going another way. I said I’m not going to go in that door that says, ‘White only,'” Biden said. The former vice president said he was told that he was not allowed to go with the other members of Congress. Biden was a senator from Delaware at the time.

“They kept me there until, finally, I decided that it was clear I wasn’t going to move,” he said. “And so, what they finally did, they said, OK, they’re not going to make the congressional delegation go through the black door. They’re not going to make me go through the white door. They took us — my memory serves me — through a baggage claim area up to a restaurant, and they cleared out a restaurant.”

Biden went on to say that Mandela later thanked him for standing up for his black colleagues during a trip to America, something Biden had attempted to pass off as being praise for his arrest.

“When I said arrested, I meant I was not able to move. Cops would not let me go with them, made me stay where I was,” he concluded on Friday. “I wasn’t arrested. I was stopped. I was not able to move where I wanted to go.”

Sure, Biden. Sure.

The former vice president has made a number of critical gaffes while on the campaign trail that seem to have had a pretty profoundly negative impact on his presidential aspirations. Once favored to be the right man for the job, Biden is slipping further and further down in the polls and has yet to have a good performance at any of the primaries thus far.

Save conservative media!

President Joe Biden. Vice President Kamala Harris. Both titles have a certain ugliness when put in front of those two names. My goodness, America. What have we done? From The Daily Wire: Future White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain released a memo Saturday detailing President-elect Joe Biden’s plans to make good on his campaign promises in the first few hours of his presidency. The memo, sent to incoming senior staff and obtained by The New York Times, states that Biden will address the “four crises” facing the nation: Covid-19, the economy, the climate and racial inequity. The actions expand on the Biden campaign’s message of “build back better” and claim to “reverse the gravest damages of the Trump administration” while moving the country forward. CONTINUED: On Inauguration Day, Biden will sign twelve executive orders that directly respond to these four “crises,” with additional directives spread out over a ten-day period. Included in this group are plans to re-join the Paris Climate Agreement, reverse the so-called “Muslim Ban” restricting travel from certain countries, extend the pause on student loan payments and continue current restrictions on foreclosures and evictions. The first day of Biden’s presidency will also mark the beginning of the “100 Day Masking Challenge,” with a mask mandate taking effect for people traveling between states and visiting federal property.

McConnell to Trump: If You Pardon Julian Assange, We’re ‘More Likely to Convict You’ [Report]

He said what!?

As soon as it was learned that President Trump had no chance of being re-elected, Mitch McConnell started bashing POTUS pretty hard. Heck, the Kentucky Republican even blamed Trump for the Capitol riot. But if what Tucker Carlson is saying is true, it goes to show that the Senate Majority Leader was never really in Trump’s corner to begin with. WATCH: https://twitter.com/danielchaitin7/status/1351704268563075072?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1351707348373557253%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es2_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2021%2F01%2Fmitch-mcconnell-reportedly-threatened-president-trump-pardon-julian-assange-much-likely-convict-impeachment-trial-video%2F https://twitter.com/danielchaitin7/status/1351707348373557253 https://twitter.com/adamgoldmanNYT/status/1351721466803445762?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1351721466803445762%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2021%2F01%2Fmitch-mcconnell-reportedly-threatened-president-trump-pardon-julian-assange-much-likely-convict-impeachment-trial-video%2F Despite everything POTUS accomplished in just four years, Trump still gets little to no respect from members of his own party. From Fox News: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell supports Democrats’ move to initiate impeachment proceedings against President Trump and is “done” and “furious” with him, sources familiar told Fox News. It is unclear how McConnell would vote in an impeachment trial, should House Democrats vote to impeach Trump. It is not clear at this point whether McConnell would vote to convict. CONTINUED: One source told Fox News that McConnell has not made up his mind about what to do about impeachment, and does not see this as a partisan exercise like the previous impeachment effort against Trump. Another source told Fox News that McConnell told associates that impeachment will help rid the Republican Party of Trump and his movement. Sounds like things are shaking up to be a little crazy before Trump leaves office. The guy can’t have a moment of peace. History will remember everything the Trump Administration accomplished in a positive light, though. Disagree?
