Biden caught telling another whopper
President Joe Biden's penchant for embellishment and falsehood has not slowed in his old age.

The president told yet another one of his self-aggrandizing whoppers this week, claiming he spent time at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh after an antisemitic terrorist attack in October 2018 left 11 worshipers dead.

"I remember spending time at the, you know, going to the, you know, the Tree of Life Synagogue, speaking with the — just, it just is amazing these things are happening, happening in America," Biden said Thursday in a meeting with Jewish leaders.

The synagogue's executive director told the New York Postshe has no idea what the president is talking about. Biden has not visited the Tree of Life even once in the years since the mass shooting.

Asked to reconcile the president's remarks with the synagogue's response, the White House clarified that Biden was talking about a phone call he had with the Tree of Life's rabbi in July 2019.

Just so we're all tracking, Biden said he remembers "spending time at" and "going to" the synagogue after the 2018 mass shooting. This didn't happen, the synagogue said. Now, the White House claims the president was referring to a private phone call that took place a full nine months after the slaughter. Close enough for government work, I suppose.

It's not shocking Biden would tell such an easily disprovable story. He has a long, long history of such falsehoods, which is why it was highly amusing when certain members of the press, particularly the fact-checkers, suggested a Biden presidency would usher in a golden age of honesty and truthfulness.

Surely, he wouldn't just lie! He said he was going to "restore the soul of the nation!"

Oh, please. Anyone who has paid attention to Biden's career for all of five minutes can tell you he has a notoriously strained relationship with the truth.

In case you need a refresher, here are just a handful of examples:

Biden claimed that every time he has run for office, he has had the backing of the NAACP. Not true. Biden claimed that the Obama administration, in which he served for eight years as vice president, did not "lock people up in cages." It absolutely did. He claimed "immediately, the moment [the Iraq War] started, I came out against the war at that moment." He did not.

There is much more where this comes from, including Biden's plagiarism, his lying about being shot at in Iraq, his bogus claim to have led the charge against Slobodan Milosevic, his lying about being the first in his family to go to university, his nonsense claim that he predicted the 9/11 terrorist attacks, his fabricated anecdote about being arrested in South Africa for demanding to meet with an imprisoned Nelson Mandela, and his false claim that a drunken driver killed his wife and child.

In the late 1980s, when Biden first ran for president, he claimed during an angry exchange with a voter that he attended law school at Syracuse University on a full academic scholarship, that he finished in the top half of his class in law school, that he was named the outstanding student in the political science department as an undergraduate at the University of Delaware, and that he graduated from Delaware with three undergraduate degrees.

Not a single one of these claims was true.

In comparison, Biden's bogus synagogue story actually seems to be one of his milder falsehoods.

Biden has been lying for his entire career in politics some 40 plus years now; the guy you can't mention hasn't been in politics nearly that long. Maybe the guy you can't mention learned from hanging around Bill Clinton and Joe Biden. They were all buds once back when "he who shall not be named" was a Democrat.

Seems that the left can't do basic math.

Take that up with cjcold.   You and others are simply playing childish gotcha games with him.   If you really cared to communicate with him you would be objective and realize that he was stating that the supermajority of our borders are with oceans.   But instead, you choose to play games with his imprecise language on a forum post.  

If you have a problem with the fact I provided then name the problem.    Otherwise, I recommend you ask cjcold to be clearer (if you actually care about trying to understand his point).

Interpretation is the art of extracting meaning from written words.   Those capable of rational reading will consider context, knowledge of the author, history, common sense, etc.

Others whose goal is simply to engage in petty nit-picking will (assuming they even have the skills) bypass those measures and poke fun like an elementary school child.

Mrs Clinton's security detail took it all very seriously at the time so she felt under fire whether the threat was imminent or not. No matter where or the circumstances taking off or landing at an airport that is being fired upon is pretty terrifying. People going in and out of Afghanistan and Iraq with USO Tours always say it was very scary coming and going because the flight crews are obviously scared. They usually take off and land at night and so they make everyone turn off all the lights and close all the windows and basically prepare to be shot out of the air. Never mind that Hillary Clinton was about as high value a target as possible. She had good reason to be worried. Not many people have actually experienced that kind of personal danger in real life.

Do they? I don’t know if that’s true. I’m sure many Democrats trust him, but “most Americans?” And I guess my question would be why do they trust him given his long track record - going back to 1988 and before - of kinda makin shit up. 

He is a known quantity.

That’s the whole thing. Going up against Trump, the one thing the party wanted more than anything else was name recognition. In my opinion, there were better future presidents in the running, but the party got together and kicked them all to the curb.
