Joe Biden has done it again, and this time it is a big one.
While speaking in Alaska to commemorate the attack on 9/11, Joe Biden claimed he was at Ground Zero the day after the attack, reported the New York Post.
It was a lie, of course, but Joe Biden actually debunked himself on this one.
Joe, Read Your Book
First, you should know that Biden is the first president since the attack not to commemorate the event at one of the cities where the attacks took place.
Instead, Biden was in Alaska pushing climate change.
Biden stated, "Ground Zero, New York. I remember standing there the next day and looking at the building. I felt like I was looking through the gates of hell; it looked so devastated because of…where you could stand.
"Shanksville, Pa., the Pentagon in Virginia — I spent many 9/11s in those hollow grounds to bear witness and remember those we lost."
Biden later added, "The plume of fire that shot up in the sky in Pentagon [sic] — I remember seeing as I got off the Amtrak train on my way to work in the United States Senate."
In Joe Biden's book, "Promises to Keep," he describes it a bit differently.
Biden, on the strike at the Pentagon, stated, "I could see a brown haze of smoke hanging in the otherwise crystal-clear sky beyond the Capitol dome."
When Biden claimed that he was at Ground Zero, he was actually on the Senate floor giving a speech.
At the time, he stated, "Some have said, yesterday and today, that all has changed for America.
"I know what they mean by that … but I pray that is not true … the one thing we cannot allow to change are the values upon which this country is built, for if that were to occur, then they would be able to declare victory."
In fact, there is no recorded trip of Biden to Ground Zero until more than a week later, when he went to Ground Zero with a senate delegation on September 20.
The first politician to arrive at Ground Zero other than local New York officials was President Bush, who went to New York two days after the attack.
Biden lies, that is what he does, and for some reason, the majority of the mainstream media accept it as business as usual.
