If he’s not committing a gaffe, Joe Biden is lying. The latter occurred last week with probably a touch of the former, too. Check out this story Biden swears by, even though it is completely made up.
From Daily Wire:
Last Friday, former Vice President Joe Biden told a rapt audience in New Hampshire a poignant story revolving around a Navy captain who rappelled down a 60-foot ravine to rescue a fallen comrade, but rebuffed Biden’s attempt to pin a Silver Star on his chest because his daring actions to save the soldier came too late.Advertisement - story continues below
There was one problem: Biden made the story up.
The Washington Post reports that Biden told the story of a four-star general who asked Biden, when he was vice-president, to take a dangerous trip to Kunar province in Afghanistan so he could put the Silver Star on the chest of a Navy captain who had rappelled down a 60-foot ravine under fire and brought back the body of an American soldier.
Liar, liar, pants on fire.
It’s time for Joe to concede.
That’s saying something, considering this guy was the Democrat frontrunner.
It’s looking more and more grim for the former VP who has yet to be endorsed by Barack Obama.
At a @JoeBiden campaign event in Nevada, Status Coup caught on video an attendee saying he was asked to be a seat filler.
"They said we need seat fillers. What is this the Oscars?"
