President Joe Biden included a touching story during his Amtrak speech this week.
Too bad it wasn’t true.
Angelo Negri the guy he claims he talked to, retired in 1993. His mother died in 2010.
Yet Biden claimed he talked with Negri while traveling to see his mother while he was vice president. Neither event event could possibly have happened in his fourth or fifth year as VP.
What’s going on?
Biden claimed, “I literally every day in the United States Senate caught the 728 and because the 732 and/or go home–if I got lucky got the metro that left the last one left at six o’clock and got to know everybody.”
He added, “We had a Christmas party for Amtrak employees at my home and it got so big we had a summer because family and retirees kept coming back.”
This may be a case of Biden “misremembering.” If so, how does this misremembering take place while using a teleprompter?
And if this is the case, what else is Biden misremembering when he addresses Americans?
Biden’s gaffes have long concerned viewers. No need to pick on someone who forgets a detail along the way, but it does concern Americans when the nation’s commander-in-chief tells tall tales.
This isn’t story time with the grand kids. This is the future of our country.
The point of the story was how many miles Biden had put on Amtrak trains as part of his support for infrastructure. Fair enough.
Manipulating people through fictitious personal stories? Not so good.
The media needs to take this as seriously as they did with Trump’s remarks as president. Where’s the fact checking?
The fact is that the media is largely playing softball with the new president. He may tell a tall tale or two, but the left will never tell you it’s an issue.
