Biden's Cognitive Decline Hits New, Embarrassing Lows As He Confabulates a Completely False Story About the Pentagon Asking Him to Deliver a Secret Purple Heart to a Family Member

Via Karen Townsend at Hot Air.

Check her link to read about Biden's previous lies regarding trip to Iraq and Afghanistan and his son Beau "dying in Iraq." He literally cannot stand in front of a military crowd without lying. He knows he's a worthless man and so he feels compelled whenever he stands in front of men of worth to start lying, confabulating, and embellishing.

Honestly the long litany of previous lies makes the new lie seem dainty by comparison.

But here's the new lie:

President Joe Biden appeared to be rewriting history on Friday afternoon as he claimed to have visited the war torn countries of Afghanistan and Iraq as many as 39 times, despite the true number being closer to 21.

He made the astonishing claims as he spoke to war veterans in Delaware and also told them a previously unheard story of how his uncle Frank Biden won a Purple Heart medal for his service during the Battle of the Bulge in 1944 during World War II.

There appeared to be some glaringly inaccurate key details in his tale - including there being no evidence of such an honor ever being awarded.

Biden went on to explain how his father urged him have his brother, Frank, be awarded the prestigious medal normally given to those wounded or killed while serving, on or after 5 April 1917, with the U.S. military.

The president claimed all of this happened when he had been elected as vice president, in 2008. However, his uncle Frank had passed away in 1999 and his own father died in 2002 making such a conversation impossible.

'My dad, when I got elected vice president in 2008, he said, "Joey, Uncle Frank fought in the Battle of the Bulge." He was not feeling very well now -- not because of the Battle of the Bulge, but he said, "and he won the Purple Heart and he never received it. He never got it. Do you think you could help him get it? We will surprise him"', the president said during his remarks on Friday.

'So I got him the Purple Heart. He had won it in the Battle of the Bulge. And I remember he came over the house and I came out and [my father] said, "Present it to him, okay?" We had the family there,' Biden continued.

'I said, "Uncle Frank, you've won this and I wanted to --" and he said, "I don't want the damn thing." No, I'm serious, he said, "I don't want it." I said, "What's the matter, Uncle Frank? You earned it." He said, "Yeah, but the others died. The others died. I lived. I don't want it."'

Apart from the simple fact of chronology proving this story to be a lie -- both men died years and years before Biden was a Vice President -- there's also no record of Frank Biden ever having been awarded a Purple Heart.

Frank's tombstone does not identify mention him as receiving a Purple Heart and neither it is mentioned in his obituary.

A registry of Purple Heart recipients also fails to name him, the New York Post reported.

Karen Townsend notes that the New York Post actually attempted journalism and called the White House and Department of Defense to check up on Pop-Pop's newest lies -- but they refused to comment.

The White House did not immediately respond to The Post's request for comment. The Defense Department referred questions to the Army -- the military branch in which Frank Biden served -- but the Army did not immediately respond.

Or since.

Biden just let the lies flow:

On Friday, Biden's remarks contained further inaccuracies as he told veterans that he had been 'in and out of Afghanistan, Iraq, and those areas 38, 39 times as vice president, only twice as president.'

Only twice?

Would you believe zero times, Jack?

Biden has traveled to Afghanistan and Iraq many times, including to visit his son who was serving in Iraq, but he has never visited either country as president. The last time he was in Iraq appears to be in 2016. For Afghanistan, it was in 2011.

He's only been president for two years.

How has he already confabulated trips to Afghanistan and Iraq?

Several times this year, Biden has incorrectly claimed his son Beau Biden died in Iraq. Beau died from brain cancer in 2015 at the age of 46.

His father has often blames his son's illness and subsequent death on the exposure to toxins from burn pits in Iraq, used by the military to remove household trash and other toxic substances.

It's a claim he has repeated in the past.

Quite a few times, in fact.
