It seems when Joe Biden isn’t plagiarizing someone’s speech somewhere, he is avoiding the truth. And it’s not about meaningful stuff either. It’s about the little stuff. My mother always told me that if you lie about the little stuff, you’ll certainly lie about the important stuff. Here’s what I mean.
It was recently reported that Joe Biden, when he was Vice President traveled some 1.3 million miles on Air Force 2 (he called it Air Force 1, but that’s only when the President is on board). Biden claimed that a conductor on Amtrak told him that he had taken over 7,000 trips from DC to Delaware back in the day, including when he was Vice President. He said something about his mother being sick and when he was VP, in his fourth and fifth year, he would jump on Amtrak against the advice of Secret Service, to visit his mother. There was a conductor that always talked to him, and said that he may have flown 1.3 million miles on Air Force 2, but he had actually traveled 1.5 million miles on Amtrak.
Well, that’s a really nice story for Amtrak isn’t it? The problem is, it’s not true.
It turns out that Biden entered his fourth year as Vice President in 2015, when he started riding the train again to visit his sick mother. But according to the conductor’s obituary, he retired from Amtrak in 1993. So, how is it that the conductor would be riding the same train as Biden, some 22 years AFTER he actually retired?
Need more? Biden’s mother, Catherine Eugenia Finnegan died in 2010. That’s was about five years prior to when Biden said he actually skipped taking Air Force Two, and at the Secret Service’s dismay, decided to ride the train to go see her. Unless she was embalmed somewhere in Delaware, that makes no sense!
There always seems to be a “second story” with Biden. There is his narrative, that is filled with exuberance, and whimsy. And then, later on, the White House communications staff has to clean up the mess by issuing a statement of what really happened. Now, I don’t believe that Biden was totally lying. He said he’d been taking the train from DC to Delaware from the time he was a Senator, and he could have been. He went to DC in 1975, four years after the service was founded. But c’mon Sleepy Joe! First of all, the conductor you cited in your story had been retired for 22 years. It’s one thing to miss a year or two in your tale, but 22 years??? That’s a bit much.
And if you don’t even remember when your own mother passed away, and are off by at least five years, that really says there is something wrong with you upstairs. That’s just not normal. My father passed away in 1995. That’s a whopping 15 years earlier than your mother died, yet I can clearly remember the date.
What we have hear is a pathological liar. There is no other way to describe this. It’s been going on for decades. Joe Biden lied his way into politics and hasn’t stopped since. And we trusted this guy more than Donald Trump with nuclear codes? My God, he can’t even protect the border of his own country from a bunch of people who’s combined net worth is that of a homeless guy in San Francisco!
I don’t care how you slice it. If you lie to me, you are dead to me. It’s always been that way, and sorry, Joe… but the same thing holds true with you. And the sad part is, you’re not lying about anything that anybody in this country gives a damn about. Sad. Truly sad.
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
