Joe Biden lies. A lot.
I think the only reason it isn’t the huge issue it should be is because the liberal media simply ignores or skips right over it. I’m not sure that most Americans are getting this simple fact about Biden because of the media aid. That’s the same media who keeps insisting that President Donald Trump hasn’t condemned white supremacy while asking him to condemn it for the millionth time.
But Biden’s lying is a big problem. Because it’s constant, almost reflexive, particularly when he’s challenged. And it has been throughout his political career.
Biden was at it again during his ABC town hall in Pennsylvania on Thursday and now he’s getting called out on it, according to Fox News.
During the event, ABC host George Stephanopoulos asked about Biden’s stance on fracking which has varied all over the place, depending on who’s asking/the audience. Stephanopoulos said that Biden’s last stated position, that he doesn’t want to ban fracking, was questioned by the Boilermakers Local 154 member Sean Stefee because it was inconsistent with Biden’s stated goal of ending the use of fossil fuels.
That challenged Joe. Challenged Joe tends to either get very angry and/or lie his head off.
“The boilermakers overwhelmingly endorse me, okay?” Biden claimed. “So the Boilermakers Union has endorsed me because I sat down with them, went into great detail with leadership, exactly what I would do, number one.”
Except that wasn’t true. At all.
The International Boilermakers Union, however, made it clear on its website that it has not endorsed anyone. The Local 154 endorsed President Trump in a September message from business leader John Hughes.
“It is with great honor that I write this letter to endorse your campaign as you run for re-election of the President of the United States,” Hughes said. “I am happy to support your administration as you have proven to be a true friend of the Boilermakers, and I wish you the best of luck in your campaign.”
Fox asked the Biden team if they could explain this lie, they haven’t responded. No wonder. It must be tough at this point trying to keep up with and cover his lies.
Biden has gotten into a lot of trouble particularly in Pennsylvania for his shifting statements about fracking and his desire to get rid of fossil fuels. That’s why Stefee told the Times that he and his local had had enough of Biden.
This also isn’t the first time that Biden has lied about endorsements. During the big fracas over Biden’s “you ain’t black” remark to Charlamagne tha God what almost went unnoticed was another lie he told about having been endorsed by the NAACP. “I have a record that is second to none. The NAACP has endorsed me every time I’ve run,” Biden claimed.
Except like the Boilermakers Union, that was a lie too. The NAACP has actually never endorsed political candidates on any level, as they clarified after Biden’s false statement.
Biden had to drop out of his 1988 run for president after he was caught lying about his background and plagiarizing another politician’s speech.
