Examining the Truth: Debunking Biden’s False Narratives with Limited Success

In the world of politics, truth often takes a backseat to storytelling.

This is particularly true in the case of President Biden, whose penchant for spinning yarns has been a subject of much debate. However, the recent attempt by The Washington Post to fact-check Biden’s wild stories leaves much to be desired.

Biden’s tales are as numerous as they are grandiose. One such story involves a towering inferno in Delaware that almost claimed his wife, his Corvette, and his cat.

In reality, it was a minor kitchen fire extinguished within 20 minutes. Despite the abundance of such exaggerated narratives, the mainstream media, including the so-called “fact-checkers,” largely turned a blind eye to Biden’s fabrications.

The recent article by Glenn Kessler and The Washington Post is a classic example of this selective scrutiny. The piece, which purports to fact-check some of Biden’s unverified or implausible stories, is nothing more than a half-hearted attempt to cover their tracks.

It glosses over Biden’s falsehoods, with Kessler using the term “lie” only once, and that too to describe accusations from others.

One of the most glaring examples of Biden’s embellishments is his account of a house fire. Speaking to survivors of the devastating Maui fire, Biden recalled how lightning once struck a pond outside his home, sparking a fire that almost cost him his wife, his ’67 Corvette, and his cat.

However, contemporary news reports contradict his version of events, leading to criticism that he had lied to a vulnerable audience.

Another instance of Biden’s tall tales is the oft-repeated Amtrak story. According to Biden, he had a conversation with a friend, Negri, after crossing the 1.2 million-mile mark on Amtrak.

However, Negri retired from Amtrak in 1993, long before Biden became vice president, and passed away two years before Biden claims they had this conversation. Kessler, in his article, avoids calling out this blatant lie, instead suggesting Biden may have confused Negri with someone else.

Kessler’s approach to fact-checking Biden’s stories is disappointingly lenient. He describes Biden’s narratives as “evolving” or not “adding up,” rather than labeling them as “false” or “lies.”

This soft-pedaling of Biden’s falsehoods is a stark contrast to the rigorous scrutiny applied to every statement made by former President Trump.

Moreover, Kessler conveniently omits his usual “Pinocchio” grading system, which assigns between one and four “Pinocchios” based on the severity of a lie.

This omission is just another indication of the biased treatment accorded to Biden’s fabrications.

The recent fact-checking effort by The Washington Post is a feeble attempt at best. It fails to hold Biden accountable for his falsehoods, instead choosing to downplay his lies and exaggerations.
