Following the manufactured crisis of the leaked audio between President Trump and Bob Woodward, Joe Biden’s social media team had to take a swipe. However, the intern that is running the account decided to blast out some truly mockable posts. If you have been sentient for more than a decade, you may laugh out loud:
You deserve a president who tells you the truth.

We certainly do. The reader must assume that the implication is that Joe Biden is as honest as Abe and will never tell a lie. Once you make that connection, you should collapse into hysterical laughter. The aging septuagenarian has a long history of whoppers. In fact, one cost him the nomination previously.

One has to wonder how many people have or will have to suffer because of Biden’s lies. Here is a quick list of some of the more egregious examples of Biden’s casual relationship with the truth.
1. Biden’s College Years
During a campaign stop in April of 1987, a member of the audience asked him about his academic record. Here is the press coverage from the time:
Note the final comment after Biden had to concede that the account he gave was not correct. He said his memory had failed him. This event was thirty-three years ago, and shortly before he underwent the first of two brain surgeries for a ruptured aneurysm.
2. Biden’s Plagiarism Problem
Biden was forced to drop out of the 1988 race following accusations of plagiarism. Under scrutiny, he had to admit he had a history of using other people’s work. From The Washington Post:
The collapse had begun 11 days earlier, with news that Biden had lifted phrases and mannerisms from a British Labour Party politician while making closing remarks at a debate. Examples soon surfaced of Biden using material from other politicians without attribution, and he acknowledged he had been accused of plagiarism in law school. To make matters worse, a video emerged of Biden exaggerating his academic record while speaking angrily to a voter in New Hampshire.
“I made some mistakes,” Biden, then a U.S. senator, told the press as he announced the end of his candidacy, in a speech that was by turns regretful and defiant. “But now, the exaggerated shadow of those mistakes has begun to obscure the essence of my candidacy and the essence of Joe Biden.”
Notice, it was other people exaggerating his lying and using the work of others that was the problem. Not the fact that he made things up out of whole cloth. Joe Biden dropped out of his last presidential race because he was a liar. But now he’ll be the president who doesn’t lie. M’kay.
In this campaign, his team has lifted a slogan and climate plan directly from the United Nations, and much his latest economic and COVID policies sound eerily like President Trump’s.
3. The Bidens’ Love Story
Joe and his wife, Jill, are fond of telling the story of their romance. However, the information has varied over time. In one, Biden’s brother, Frank, fixes them up after Joe sees Jill’s picture in an ad at the airport. In another, they are fixed up on a blind date, and Joe had no idea who he was meeting until he picked her up.
Jill’s ex-husband tells a very different story. Bill Stevenson alleges he and Jill worked on Biden’s first campaign for the Senate in 1972 before Biden’s wife died in a car crash. He says he considered Biden a friend.
Stevenson owned the Steel Balloon, which hosted high-profile rock bands. He first became suspicious when Jill had the opportunity to meet Bruce Springsteen and declined because she was going to take care of Biden’s young sons, Beau and Hunter, after their mother’s death.
He believes Biden and Jill began an affair at some point after Neilia Biden’s death, which was confirmed to him in October of 1974 when Biden and Jill were allegedly in a fender-bender in Jill’s car. At that point, Stevenson asked Jill to leave, and she did.
Stevenson was listed as one of the top 50 most influential men in the last 50 years in Delaware, along with Biden on a 2012 list. He is an entrepreneur and businessman who recently sold a product to Scotts Miracle-Gro. It doesn’t seem like he’s telling tales for a payday, and the Biden’s have not commented.
4. Biden’s Tragic Loss
Joe Biden’s wife Neilia and one-year-old daughter Naomi were killed in an auto accident after Biden won his Senate seat, but before he was sworn in. This loss in and of itself was tragic. Indeed, a story that needed no embellishment. But Biden can’t resist.
“A tractor-trailer, a guy who allegedly — and I never pursued it — drank his lunch instead of eating his lunch, broadsided my family and killed my wife instantly and killed my daughter instantly and hospitalized my two sons,” Mr. Biden said in 2007.
In a 2001 speech at the University of Delaware, he referred to an “errant driver who stopped to drink instead of drive” and “hit my children and my wife and killed them,” according to a 2008 report in NewsBusters, citing a 2001 “Inside Edition” report.
According to the investigator on the case:
Now-retired Delaware Superior Court Judge Jerome O. Herlihy, who oversaw the investigation as chief deputy attorney general, told Politico, “She had a stop sign. The truck driver did not.”
In 2008, he told the Post that rumors about alcohol playing a role in the accident were “incorrect.”
The driver’s daughter says Biden called and apologized for these statements. However, one has to wonder why he started making them thirty years after the fact.
5. Where’s Hunter?
While the scandal-ridden son did appear at the DNC, it was mostly to give a brief speech about how great his dad is and give an introduction to a memorial video for his deceased brother Beau. Neither Joe Biden nor his son has been honest about their dealings in Ukraine and China. At least Hunter was honest enough to say a lot of things have come his way because of his last name. The real question is how many things were given in exchange for those opportunities.
The graft of the Biden family is extensive enough that it takes up 44 scrupulously sourced pages in Peter Schweizer’s book Profiles in Corruption. It also takes up countless articles and podcasts from the likes of John Solomon, Sara Carter, Greg Jarrett, and Dan Bongino.
Biden says he didn’t know about his son’s business deals. This assertion is beyond parody given the number of photos and meetings that have been disclosed of Biden with Hunter’s business associates and the documented meetings and communications. The nominee is rarely asked about these issues and typically evades them.
I guess he sniffed and groped her and she was impressed.
Like Hillary (when she’s not lying about a crime she has committed), Biden seems to lie for the sake of lying, embellishing an otherwise lackluster life. And, yes, there are many, many more lies to consider.
But, at least he’s a pedophile, which his liberal supporters just love.
Funny stuff. Democrats are scolded about so-called “lies” about their life stories and fabricated malarkey from far right and unhinged conspiracy theory sites such as PJMedia while Republicans get a pass for lying about wars and viruses that ultimately kills tens of thousands of Americans, which we actually witness in real time.
@Ronald J. Ward: I guess it’s clear that no matter what Biden does, you will still support the pedophile rapist.
So did joe biden wreck a marriage and then lie about it for decades?
Why does joe biden require the use of a teleprompter in order to conduct an interview? Would it be necessary for a president joe biden to use a teleprompter when conducting affairs of state?
Did joe biden molest any girls yesterday.
Here is a biden voter doing what comes natural to biden voters.
Two Los Angeles County police officers were ambushed last night.
They are currently fighting for their lives.
No outrage from the mainstream media.
No statement from Joe Biden.
No condemnation from the NFL.
Joe biden might want to pull his application for potus. He may have been under the impression it was a part time job. You know, “jobs, a four letter word, job.”
@July 4th American: The direct result of false left wing propaganda describing ALL cops as racist killers. In fact, their “systemic” racism doesn’t exist. But, this is what Democrats support.
Imagine cheering for someone to die. Thanks joe biden.
To the protesters blocking the entrance & exit of the HOSPITAL EMERGENCY ROOM yelling “We hope they die” referring to 2 LA Sheriff’s ambushed today in #Compton: DO NOT BLOCK EMERGENCY ENTRIES & EXITS TO THE HOSPITAL. People’s lives are at stake when ambulances can’t get through.
@July 4th American: I wonder… how did the “protesters” know two wounded cops would be being brought to that hospital?
@Deplorable Me: That’s St Francis Hospital, in Lynwood, CA.
The sheriff’s office is located in Lynwood, too.
It only makes sense the ambulance would take them to that closest and also superb hospital.
I happened to have been born there.
It cost $26 and mom got to stay for 3 days!
Joe Biden is not much longer for this campaign.
He pulls in dozens, like 46 people a week while President Trump pulls in over 10,000 in one rally, er, make that peaceful protest.
If Biden is being heavily medicated with the only drugs that actually work to clear his thinking for a few hours, the downside is that those same drugs shorten one’s life considerably.
Biden is NOT an informed patient, someone is giving him drugs anyway. It is elder abuse and I hope whoever is signing off on the permission goes to prison after he dies.
He can’t make it thru a debate, but the right drugs’ known side effects might make a great excuse for backing out.
Did he lie about piddly things when he didn’t need to?
But far worse, he lied about the man whose truck was hit by his wife’s car when she ran the stop sign. Joe’s been slandering that man from that day to this.
His lies and covering for his family’s enrichment in Ukraine and China are also criminal.
I don’t support pedophiles or rapist on any level.
Thing is, the pedophile charges against Biden are not grounded in fact but rather a product of the QAnon conspiracy theory outlet.
This is the main differences in right wing scandals and left wing scandals. Left wing scandals are pretty much fabricated or way over hyped by the right whereas right wing scandals play out right in front of our eyes on a daily basis.
A President who tells the truth? Nice try Biden but your Democrat Party can not take the truth so that leave you out
@Nan G: Well, my point was, how did protesters know two cops were going to be shot THEN taken to that hospital to be positioned there to try and block access of the ambulance to the hospital? Seems a bit “planned”.
@Ronald J. Ward:
You are on record supporting Biden. There are DOZENS of videos of Biden groping little girls, at least 9 women making complaints he has groped them and one woman making a credible accusation that he raped her. So, you are lying.
The videos and credible accusations have NOTHING to do with Qanon. They have been going on long before Qanon even existed.
There. Fixed that right up for you.
Ted Kennedy, Bill Clinton, Weinstein, Epstein, Weiner, Gillam, Hastings, Katie Hill, Buck, Schneiderman… your Democrat Hall of Shame. Now, add Biden, the groping rapist. You not only support them but you support their vile acts.
Trump lickers say the most ridiculous things.
Please provide that record.
Or, just shut your lying trolling ass up.
You can do neither.
@Ronald J. Ward:
OK, you can resolve this with one word, Ward/AJ; do you support Joe Biden.
Yes? or No?
I do not support Joe Biden.
I do not support Donald Trump.
Obviously, there are only 2 realistic candidates on the 2020 ballot.
Obama claimed his Presidency was without a single Scandal What a load of Malarkey
@Ronald J. Ward:
Yeah, just as soon as you provide those quotes and links that support your assertions about Trump, as has been asked for numerous times in numerous comments on numerous topics. Cmon, man! You’re HERE supporting him
Right here. #14 Trying to tell people that have seen the videos and heard the women’s testimony that everything they see and hear came from QAnon. You embarrass yourself with embarrassingly weak and silly lies to protect the raping pedophile Biden. Only someone kissing his wrinkled old ass would be lying to defend him like that. Can’t just lie that stain away, AJ.
Yeah. Why are you so ashamed to admit you defend and support Genius Gropin’ Quid Pro Quo Hidin’ Biden? BUSTED.
@Ronald J. Ward:
QAnon: the new “Russia” for the failing Left.
Just like all those right-wing white supremacists out there in the street, QAnon doesn’t exist.
It’s a manufactured enemy to distract from Leftwing violence and conduct.
The old “there’s bad stuff on both sides” argument is bullshit.
It’s on the left. Violence, racism, and now conspiracy theories…all on the left’s pathetic side.
It’s rather telling you are finally admitting you don’t support Biden. NO ONE DOES! You simply hate Trump, mostly because you’ve been brainwashed.
@Nathan Blue: The NYT is more of a conspiracy promoter than QAnon… and CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC are about as bad.
