Senile Joe Biden is back and he’s been caught telling stories that aren’t true.
During the dust up with the press during his meeting with the UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson Biden started making up stories about his career.
Biden noted that Johnson had traveled from New York City to DC on Amtrak and wanted to tell him a story that “has nothing to do with anything.”
The president then recalled, “the Secret Service didn’t like me traveling on Amtrak because there were too many options for people to cause trouble along the way. But I insisted I do it.”
“One day,” Biden continued, “they put in the newspaper: ‘Biden travels 1 million …’ — and I think — don’t hold me to the exact number — I think it was — ‘ … 350,000 miles on Air Force Two.’”
The president then claimed, “One day,” Biden continued, “they put in the newspaper: ‘Biden travels 1 million …’ — and I think — don’t hold me to the exact number — I think it was — ‘ … 350,000 miles on Air Force Two.’”
“He said, ‘Joey, big deal. 1.3 million miles on Amtrak’ — I mean, on Air Force Two,” the president continued. “‘Do you know how many miles you traveled on Amtrak?’ And I said, ‘No.’ He said, ‘Well, at the retirement dinner, we worked it out.’ He said, ’36 years in the Senate; X number of years as …’ — at that point — ‘ … as vice president; average 131 days a year, 257 miles a day. Joey, you traveled over 2 million miles. Big deal.’”
The New York Post pointed out that Biden’s story has been debunked several times:
Biden did not say he had crossed the 1.3 million-miles-traveled mark as vice president until September 2016. That was more than two years after Negri’s death at the age of 83 in May 2014, 21 years after he had retired from Amtrak as a conductor.
Second, Biden said in the May speech that Negri told him he had traveled 1.5 million miles on Amtrak, not the 2 million miles he claimed on Tuesday.
It’s not clear how often Negri and Biden saw each other after the former’s retirement. The White House told The Post in May that Negri could have attended two events as Biden’s guest while he was VP: the rededication of the Amtrak station in Wilmington, Del., as the Joseph R. Biden Jr. Railroad Station in 2011 and an event promoting the Obama-era stimulus in 2009 or 2010. In either case, the event would have taken place long before Biden achieved the 1.3 million-mile milestone.
Senile Joe is back!
