Media Finally Notices -- Barely -- That Biden Sure Tells a Lot of "Unverifiable or Implausible" Stories

They refuse to say "lies" -- those are the things Republicans tell! -- so instead they say he tells "unverifiable and implausible tales."

And he only does so to connect with audiences and to "comfort" them! You see! His lies, unlike Trump's, are healing lies! They're helping lies!

But before getting to that, let's set the table: He just told the story about his house almost burning down again, despite the heat he took from telling Maui residents that oh boy, Joe Biden sure does know wildfires, why there was one in his kitchen.

Burned down three whole states, seventy-hundred people were killed. One of the tires of my beautiful Corvette got a little warped from the heat.

My word as a Biden.

Biden started off by saying that he didn't think anyone could "deny the impact of the climate crisis," immediately seeming to ignore the facts in the case in Maui, which at this point seem to indicate the fire being started by downed powerlines, although there has not been a formal declaration as to "cause" yet. Maui County, though, did sue Hawaiian Electric,, so that's a pretty good idea about what they think.

But then he went on to talk again about the fire at his house in 2004, which the local fire company described as a small kitchen fire that was put out within 20 minutes. Again, Biden seems obsessed with exaggerating the nature of the fire, and he was at it again, while talking about Americans who had suffered true loss.

If this seems familiar -- yes, he just told that same story in Maui, where 1,100 people are still missing and most of those are probably dead.

He was roundly criticized for trivializing true tragedy, and, as Megyn Kelly says, he was almost certainly told by his staff "Don't say that!"

So why would he trot out the same story again, in the same context?

Because, she says: He doesn't remember his staff warning him not to tell that story again, even though they just told him that last week.

With Biden's many Fake Tales of Tragedy and Woe becoming a more salient issue, given not just a rising appreciation of his dishonesty and corruption but also given the nation's growing understanding that this man is senile and no more capable of running the country than a housecat, the Washington Post decided to forthrightly confront the issue, and by "forthrightly confront the issue," I mean they put Nazi-scion Glenn Kessler on the case to minimize the extent of Joe Biden's dishonesty and mental disrepair and claim that stories which are provably false are merely "unverifiable."

The article is exactly what you'd expect. It's a pathetic attempt to get on record that "we covered it" while completely glossing over Biden's falsehoods. In fact, Kessler only uses the word "lie" a single time, and that's only to describe accusations from others.
Speaking to survivors of the devastating Maui fire on Aug. 21, Biden recalled how lightning had once struck a pond outside his home, sparking a fire. "To make a long story short, I almost lost my wife, my '67 Corvette and my cat," he said, adding, "all kidding aside."

But throughout his career -- most famously in his first presidential campaign, in the 1988 election cycle -- Biden's propensity to exaggerate or embellish tales about his life led to doubts about his truthfulness. Contemporary news reports on the house fire do not match his telling of it, fanning criticism that he had lied to a vulnerable audience.

"Joe Biden shared his life -- or his version of it -- continuously," wrote Richard Ben Cramer in his 1992 book, "What It Takes," about the 1988 campaign. "He confided it, displayed it, spread it profligately, even expanded it to connect it with your life. He would settle for nothing less."

Kessler's choice to include that ridiculous quote from a Biden sycophant, essentially claiming that Bidne's lies are somehow a positive is your first clue. How many of his Trump fact-checks included quotes from the former president's most ardent supporters explaining how lying is good actually? I would suspect the answer is none.

The whole piece is worth a read. If you can take it, of course.
