Biden seems to be making gaffes left and right. You have to wonder how any Dem can get behind him when he can’t seem to get his facts or was it truth straight… The Dem Presidential Candidate this time swore that a military story he was telling was “God’s Truth.” But it was found to be a lie.
“The controversy surrounds a moving military story — which the former VP claimed to be the “God’s truth” — that Biden told at a campaign stop in New Hampshire earlier this month.
The only problem was that the story was not true, according to The Washington Post.
Biden’s allegedly tall tale was an emotional account of his decision to travel to Afghanistan, despite concerns about visiting a war-torn area, in order to honor a Navy captain for retrieving the body of his dead comrade during battle.
According to Biden, he brushed off concerns about the risk of him traveling to the deadly area. “We can lose a vice president,” he said, recounting his words to a crowd during an event on Friday. “We can’t lose many more of these kids. Not a joke.” His story involved the captain dramatically telling Biden he didn’t want the medal because his comrade ended up dying.
But after speaking with more than a dozen military and campaign sources, the Post determined the event “never happened” and that “almost every detail in the story appears to be incorrect.
“It appears as though the former vice president has jumbled elements of at least three actual events into one story,” the Post’s Matt Viser and Greg Jaffe wrote.
They added that Biden rattled off a slew of inaccurate facts in the span of just a few minutes.
“In the space of three minutes, Biden got the time period, the location, the heroic act, the type of medal, the military branch and the rank of the recipient wrong, as well as his own role in the ceremony,” Viser and Jaffe wrote.”
“The former vice president’s story, however, wasn’t entirely wrong. Army Staff Sgt. Chad Workman reportedly received a medal from Biden after attempting to retrieve a dead soldier from a burning vehicle.”
So maybe it was based on a true story?
Despite his abundance of gaffes Biden’s Brain surgeon claims he is still with it as far as he can tell.
“He is every bit as sharp as he was 31 years ago. I haven’t seen any change,” Kassell said. “I can tell you with absolute certainty that he had no brain damage, either from the hemorrhage or from the operations that he had. There was no damage whatsoever.”
But he sure doesn’t seem with it and in a race where the Dems are thinking of going up against Trump, I don’t see how they think he will stand a chance.
