They never, ever, use their favorite word: “lies”.— The Fall Of Rome (@LaCadutaDiRoma) August 31, 2023
So hard-hitting! Way to go after a pathological liar who is somehow the President of the United States!— Kyle Becker (@kylenabecker) August 31, 2023
Kessler’s article, to be fair, does go on to document plenty of the lies — albeit without ever using the word “lie,” “lies” or “lying.” (The only time it was used in the article, in fact, was that part about “fanning criticism that he had lied to a vulnerable audience.”) So there was the tale about the fire at his house. Lie: Virtually every contemporary source indicates it was a minor fire that Biden has constantly exaggerated about. There was the tale about the Amtrak conductor named Angelo Negri who told Biden he had traveled more on trains than he had on Air Force Two as vice president. Lie: While Kessler called it “heartwarming but implausible,” it’s so implausible that it beggars belief, since Negri retired from Amtrak in 1993 and had passed away by the time the story allegedly took place. Then there was the story about seeing two gay men kissing in downtown Wilmington, Delaware in the 1960s and his father telling him, “Joey, it’s simple. They love each other.” Lie: Not only would this be highly unlikely to have happened in “the strait-laced business community in downtown Wilmington,” Kessler notes that “Biden’s story has evolved over time.” Which is to say it’s been a different lie each time, but still almost certainly a lie. Biden’s arrest in apartheid South Africa? Lie. His involvement in the civil rights movement? Lie. Tales about his relatives’ heroism in the war? Lies. And these are the lies Kessler mentions. He’s omitting the ones about Joe being a truck driver, about a comment in Idaho about receiving his “first job offer” from local lumber company Boise Cascade, about his academic record, about being “raised in the black church” — you know, those sorts of things. Also curiously unmentioned: something we now know is almost certainly a lie, Joe’s claim he never talked to his son Hunter about his overseas business dealings. Not only do we know he talked about them with Hunter, according to testimony from Hunter’s former business partner, Devon Archer, he talked with the overseas business connections on roughly two dozen phone calls Archer was present for. But that’s Joe for you — “embellishing his personal tales in ways that cannot be verified or are directly refuted by contemporary accounts.” Or, in non-Kesslerian terminology, lying. This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
Biden doesn’t “lie,” according to fact checkers.He tells stories that cannot be verified or are not plausible. 🙃 https://t.co/OFbMTwl75D — Cernovich (@Cernovich) August 31, 2023
