Joe Biden tells fake story of pinning a medal on a military hero

August 30, 2019

footinmouth A couple of weeks ago Joe Biden erroneously made the claim that he met with survivors of the Parkland shooting when he was Vice President but of course this was a lie because he was not the Vice President in 2018. His supporters and the mainstream media wrote this off as a simple misstatement. He was thinking of the Sandy Hook shooting and simply misspoke.

  Okay, even if we give him the benefit of the doubt on that one it is going to be hard for his supporters to explain how he got this next one wrong. It falls along the same lines but this time we meet Joe Biden as Vice President pinning a medal on a Navy hero. Here is how good ole Uncle Joe told the story:

“This guy climbed down a ravine, carried this guy up on his back under fire,” the former vice president said during a campaign stop in New Hampshire last week. “The general wanted me to pin the Silver Star on him. I got up there, and this is the God’s truth, my word as a Biden. He stood at attention. I went to pin it on him. He said, ‘Sir, I don’t want the damn thing. Do not pin it on me, sir. Please, sir, do not do that. He died! He died!'”

  There is just one thing…strike that, there are just seven things wrong with that story:

But according to the Washington Post, who spoke to more than a dozen military and campaign sources, “Biden got the time period, the location, the heroic act, the type of medal, the military branch and the rank of the recipient, as well as his own role in the ceremony” wrong.

  In a span of about 10 seconds Joe Biden got 7 things wrong about the story (which was the whole story) but The last one is the kicker, he even got his own role in the ceremony wrong. In other words he did not pin the medal on anybody who was shouting at him not to do it. In my opinion that alone puts this in the category of a lie and not a misspeak. You simply do not mis-remember something like that unless it is intentional.

  To be fair Joe Biden has pinned a medal on a hero before, he just apparently has no idea who it was–and that is quite disrespectful–and it was not nearly as dramatic as he would have us believe.

    Hey Joe, tell us how you pinned the tail on the donkey at a kids birthday party you never attended; MSM will cover your donkey ass.
