Joe Biden is using memories of his dead son to gain favor with the American people again.
It seems as though every time Biden is struggling, he pulls this card out and plays it.
This time, he went too far, blatantly lying about how Beau Biden died.
Not How It Happened
I want to be clear... I am not taking a shot at Beau Biden.
He served this country, came home decorated, and was an honorable man by all accounts.
This is about Joe Biden constantly using his death to gain favor, and now outright lying about it.
Biden was speaking at Camp Hale in Colorado, and stated, "American soldiers of the 10th Mountain Division scaled that 1800-foot cliff, at night, caught the Germans by surprise, captured key positions, and broke through the Germans' defensive line at a pivotal point in the war.
"Just imagine — I mean it sincerely — I say this as a father of a man who won the Bronze Star, the conspicuous service medal, and lost his life in Iraq.
"Imagine the courage, the daring, and the genuine sacrifice — genuine sacrifice they all made."
Beau did not lose his life in battle in Iraq.
He died from brain cancer.
Biden believes his son got brain cancer from toxic burn pits while deployed, which may very well be the case, but it has not been proven.
Regardless, he did not die in battle or even in Iraq.
He died at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Maryland on May 30, 2015.
This lie is utterly disgusting, but I am sure the White House will be spinning it soon to tell us what Biden was "clearly referring to."
