Joe Biden may have finally said the first truthful thing he has uttered since taking office.
Ironically, it was to admit a lie.
Oddly enough, even his admission was not 100 percent truthful.
For years, Biden has told a story of how he was arrested trying to see Nelson Mandela.
The story has been debunked repeatedly, but that never stops Joe.
Just ask him about his Amtrak story, and he will tell a lie he has probably told hundreds of times.
Biden’s big reveal came when South African President Cyril Ramaphosa visited the White House.
Biden stated, “One of the great moments of my career was when — the first time Nelson Mandela came to the United States [in 1990]. And we were in — I was a senator at the time, and we met in the Senate Foreign Relations executive committee room.
“We all stood there and said hello to him and the like and afterward, he asked if he could come by my office and he came by to say thank you because he heard I had been stopped trying to get to visit him, to see him in prison.
“And I said once — I said I got arrested. I wasn’t arrested, I got stopped, prevented from moving. But he was extremely gracious.”
To the lying point, Biden has told that story at least three times that the cameras have seen, and it has probably been many more in private.
The claim had been previously fact-checked by the Washington Post, and it was given a “ridiculous” rating.
Biden lies, that is what he does now and what he has done his entire career.
The case could probably be made that every “story” Joe tells crowds on the campaign has been embellished, if not completely made up.
Trump rounds up a number in a speech, the media loses its mind; Biden tells outright lie after outright lie, and we always hear the same thing… That’s just Joe.
