White House Makes Pathetic Attempt to Defend Biden's Claim He 'Used to Drive an 18-Wheeler'

Joe Biden was at a Mack Trucks plant yesterday.

As usual, when they let him out, he got confused. As we reported, he spoke about the three reasons he ran for president, but forgot to list the third reason. He also confused Barack Obama and Donald Trump, speaking about how he was Vice President under Trump, then called that a “Freudian slip.” How do you confuse who you worked for, for eight years? How far gone must you be to say that?

But you know it’s bad when that might not even be the worst thing he said during the event. He claimed during the event that he “used to drive an 18-wheeler” truck.

As we noted, there’s no evidence to support the claim that he drove an 18-wheeler. Moreover, Biden has a habit of making up stuff about his past that never happened, from hitting home runs to participating in civil rights marches, working in the coal mines to getting shot at in Iraq. Biden tends to “steal valor” a lot.

So what does the White House do when asked about it by Fox?

A White House spokesperson tried to justify Biden’s claim noting that he once rode in a truck, as we previously explained, citing to the same article below that RNC Research director Zach Parkinson noted.

But guys? Riding in a truck once is not the same as “I used to drive an 18-wheeler.” Can you get any more pathetic?

Fox made that point to the spokesperson and continued to press the question. The spokesperson then pointed to prior claims that Biden had made that he used to drive a school bus during law school for a summer job. But there’s no real evidence for that either. (Setting aside the question of just how many school buses are in use/need drivers during the summer.) He apparently made that claim when meeting with bus drivers. So did they try to cover this false boast by accidentally pointing out another one? Whoops.

But in any event, a school bus is not the same thing as an 18-wheeler truck.

The majority of school buses, on average, “have two axles, with the bigger models having two wheels on the front axle and four wheels on the dual axle, for a total of six wheels,” according to SchoolBusFleet.com.

Fox News pressed again about the president’s claim, pointing out that a school bus is not the same as an 18-wheeler truck, but did not receive a response by publishing time.

That’s the problem right there. Joe’s problem isn’t just that he’s incoherent, it’s that he’s a rabid liar, who constantly makes up things. Then the White House offers up some obvious nonsense. Where is all the liberal media to call him out on this and to point out what is a pretty significant issue when it comes to the alleged leader of the free world?
