During a speech at a wildfire-focused event in Idaho on September 13th, Joe Biden decided to tell another one of his bogus “working-class Joe” stories.
Joe Biden has a well-documented history of stealing speeches and stories from other politicians and important figures, along with outright lying about his past. These deliberate lies have been told throughout his 47 year political career. One major example occurred in 1987, when Biden claimed publicly that he marched during the civil rights movement. The lie was so brazen that he later had to admit that he was “not an activist” and he was “not out marching.”
Now, as questions swirl surrounding Biden’s mental state, it is unclear whether his recent lies were purposeful or just due to the fact that Biden has never been a genuine person, and therefore has no idea what is true or false anymore.
The most recent lie Biden told was during an event discussing wildfires in Idaho, where the former vice president claimed that his first job offer came from a lumber company in Idaho. Instead of keeping the lie somewhat plausible by not specifying the company, Biden was caught because he gave too many details.
“I used to tell Frank Church this, I got a — my first job offer, where I wanted — my wife, deceased wife and I wanted to move to Idaho because we — not a joke — it’s such a beautiful, beautiful state. And I interviewed for a job at Boise Cascade,” Biden said, referring to the late Democrat Senator Frank Church.
Of course, his statements were immediately refuted by the company.
In a statement to the New York Post, Boise Cascade spokeswoman Lisa Tschampl said: “We have no record of President Biden’s application or of him having worked for the company. “
“We checked our system internally and nothing has turned up,” she added.
The New York Post also delved into Biden’s history of lies, writing:
“Biden has a record of inaccurate or embellished claims. He dropped out of his first presidential campaign in 1988 due to a scandal involving plagiarism of speeches and a law school paper and controversy about claims he made about his academic record.
But as the nation’s oldest-ever president, Biden’s mental acuity also is a frequent matter of public debate.
Biden this month falsely claimed that he remembered ‘spending time at’ and ‘going to’ the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh after the October 2018 mass murder of 11 people. After the synagogue said he did not visit, the White House said he misspoke and was referring to a 2019 phone call with the congregation’s rabbi.”
The fact is, this is just another example of Biden’s inability to tell the truth. If he’s lying about something so trivial as an interview for a job at a lumber company, who can trust a single word he says on the important things?
