Silver Alert: Sundown Joe Biden, Who Has Repeatedly Claimed He Had Been "Arrested" In South Africa, Now Says He Wasn't Arrested

At 2:30 in this Tucker clip, three documented cases of Biden telling this lie.

And now?

Nah.

Sundown Joe lives in a magical world where dreams, fantasies, and simple lies are all patched together into a glorious quilt of dementia.

Former Vice President Joe Biden admitted Friday morning on CNN that he lied numerous times about being arrested in South Africa for trying to meet with then-imprisoned Nelson Mandela.

Biden has claimed on the campaign trail in recent weeks that he was arrested in the 1970s while trying to visit Mandela, the former president of South Africa. His campaign clarified the false claim Feb. 25, saying that the former vice president was referring to being "separated from a congressional delegation."

Biden confirmed that he lied Friday on "New Day With Alisyn Camerota and John Berman."

"I wasn't arrested, I was stopped," Biden admitted.

"When I said arrested, I was not able to -- I was not able to move. Cops would not let me go with them [the Congressional Black Caucus]," Biden added.

Well, you know, on a technical level, a stop where you are not free to leave is the very legal definition of an "arrest" -- an arrest does not require booking, handcuffs, or taking you to another location.

On the other hand, police simply asking you questions doesn't constitute a "stop" or an "arrest." Nor does it count as an "arrest" if cops are guarding a foreign delegation, which of course may be a target for attacks.

But none of this parsing matters, because I think the new version is a lie too.

Joe Biden's brain is 90% porridge. The parts that aren't porridge are pudding. The parts that are neither porridge nor pudding are a combination of Lie Plaque and Brain AIDS.

Well that's not fair: He was an exceedingly stupid and dishonest person when he was 30, too.
