Washington Post: Joe Biden conflated details of several war stories into one

Washington Post: Joe Biden conflated details of several war stories into one 1


Former Vice President Joe Biden has repeatedly incorrectly recounted a war story involving a US service member who received a military honor from him and his latest telling of the story last week contained several inaccurate elements, including the time period, the heroic act, the type of medal and the location of the story, The Washington Post reported Thursday.
The Post — citing conversations with more than a dozen US troops, their commanders and officials from Biden's presidential campaign — said the 2020 hopeful recounted the story last Friday during a packed town hall in New Hampshire. The Post reported Biden mixed the details from at least three real events into one complete story that never actually took place.
The comments are the latest in a growing list of misstatements by the former vice president, who referred to himself last year as a "gaffe machine."

      @Gooey 911 Actually, according to cnn, the *reason* why you should trust cnn is *exactly* because they lie. And besides… also according to cnn… they are not investigators.

      @Trebleda Uaedirb Let’s discuss “fiction vs. facts” when you stop forcing your belief of women having dicks, men giving birth and pedophilia is a sexual orientation, onto other people.
      It does, indeed, take a special kind of stupid to be democrat

    If it was Bernie they would be doing segments infinitum about how he should drop out.

      CNN made their choice must mean the DNC made the choice too

    • @henry ortiz
      Bernie probably walks farther in 1 day, than Donald does in a week. Bernie is also used to traveling on commercial jet, buses and trains, like average people.
      No, Bernie can walk just fine. He obviously has more energy than Donald the Hutt has.

    • @LoboKhan1 LMFAOO!!! Ya right !! You don’t actually believe that Horse 💩 do you?
      Our President looks like the Terminator ! Your “Bozo Bernie” looks like He’s Near Dead !! He reminds me of the movie Grumpy Old Men ! He is even Grumpier than John McCain was . R.I.P.

  4. Joe Biden voted for the Iraq War.

    4,400+ Americans KIA.

    • @Rob Donaldson – All you have is projection. Trump is the pathological liar, con-man, with 5 bankruptcies, no integrity, no morals, draft dodger.

  5. Poor man. He needs to retire. I know, I cared for an elderly man. He needs to hang it up.

      @Josue2018 Trump has done more for this country in 3 years than most do in 2 full terms. No younger President in history has done as much. If someone is going to lead the country it cant be someone who just left mom’s basement last week. I want someone with age, knowledge, and experience, running the most powerful country in the world. Anything else would just be stupid.

      Progressing towards what?! A morally bankrupt queer and delusional society of Godless freaks who think the world owes them a free ride?! No thanks. Dems, the Left and Progressives are the greatest threat to America.

    Joe Also forgot Obama’s name at one of his rallies it’s time to go home Joe

  8. Holy crap, he is full blown demented.

  9. We can’t cover up the fact that time has caught up too Joe Biden for, he should keep some respect for himself and, retire!

    • @YouWillbe Mocked We don’t need another isolationist to follow Trump. We need to rebuild our foreign relations ties not continue to destroy them. If you like her tight tuna, perhaps she could go into modeling.

      @ruth depew Look MUFFY, TRUMP is not an ISOLATIONIST… he’s just not a PERPETUAL WAR PUPPET like BUTTCRACK OBONGO or BUSH, or CLINTON… People are TIRED of POINTLESS WARS… WARS that achieve NOTHING… we’ve been in AFGHANISTAN for almost 20 years now… and NO PROGRESS… so yeah… Thanks, but NO THANKS.

    • @YouWillbe Mocked If Trump wanted to work with our allies, they would be doable, but he wants to build a wall around the red states and keep everyone else out. Back in caveman times we learned how to get along with the all the clans within a 24 hour march of our hearth. Today there is not one square inch of earth that is as much as 24 hours from our technology. We must work to get along or we die.

      @ruth depew **** but he wants to build a wall around the red states and keep everyone else out. ****
      No MUFFY… he’s not doing that… STOP Listening to FAKE NEWS… k?

    • @YouWillbe Mocked It was the Trump campaign that put out a written statement that the USA is their (Trump’s) country not the country of AOC, the Democrats, or Never Trumpers. This came from the Tyrannical Trump campaign not one of the authentic news sites. The Trump campaign has declared war on the majority of America and Americans.

    People wake up! Biden losing the election? Who.
    cares. What about us losing the country because we elect a senile leader.

    Mentally unstable and Obama knew this about Biden. Telling him “you don’t have to do this”🧐

  16. Dude how many gaffes does this guy have to do before the media realizes that he obviously isn’t all there mentally.

      It could be from his dad having been a car salesman, that he learned the art young that facts are not important when telling a story of a true event. He suffered from an aneurysm at a young age which is generally caused by heart disease so he may simply be having more senior moments to his memory that is caused by a physical problem while enduring the stress on the campaign trail. His speech makers should be checking every story he wishes to tell from here on to prevent this from happening as it bothers him when called out about it by the press and he does not own up to having a less than perfect memory very gracefully.

  17. Factual errors? Are you kidding me CNN? He was told that he got his story wrong and he doubled down. Does that not constitute a lie?

  18. Damn, CNN really isn’t going to cover Rep. Ilhan Omar affair with a married man or the fact that she funneled $200,000 of campaign funds in to his business?
    I wonder why that is. 😒

    Why bring Trump into this Biden Slip of the tongue? If your going to talk about Biden then talk about Biden. If you talk about Trump then keep Biden out of it…makes sense?

  20. Pathological liars have this happen all the time like it’s happening to Biden now
