Lies, Lies, Lies — it’s all lies when Biden’s at the podium.
The cognitively deficient president repeated another grave mistruth this week when he appeared in New Hampshire to extol the virtues of his recently-passed trillion-dollar infrastructure bill.
Biden launched into his often-repeated story of a house fire which apparently trapped his wife.
He exaggerated the details of the 2004 event merely to gain sympathy and stress the importance of his infrastructure project.
Another sick and twisted manipulation!
Speaking on a bridge in New Hampshire, Biden said:
And I know, having had a house burn down with my wife in it — she got out safely, God willing — that having a significant portion of it burn, I can tell: ten minutes makes a hell of a difference.
According to reports, Biden’s Delaware house did not “burn down,” and a “significant portion” of his home did not burn.
In 2004, lightening struck Biden’s home, but the fire was “small,” and firefighters responded quickly to a call from his wife, “Dr.” Jill Biden. The Fire Company Chief revealed the flames were contained in the kitchen, completely refuting Biden’s claims.
Biden’s telling of the story demonstrates his repeated willingness to stretch the truth to demonstrate a point.
Previous versions of Biden’s house fire story have been more accurate, such as his retelling of the event at a wildfire center in Sacramento in September.
Biden’s remarks about the fire on Tuesday sparked a response from Glenn Kessler, a fact-checker for the Washington Post.
Biden today: We "had a house burn down with my wife in it. She got out safely."
2004 AP news report: "A small fire that was contained to the kitchen….Jill reported the fire…The fire was under control in 20 minutes.'' https://t.co/2VcAebg9r5

While Biden’s repeated lie may seem inconsequential to some, it highlights a greater point about Joe as a man and his willingness to manipulate people to meet achieve political aims.
Obviously there are other ways to stress the importance of any given piece of legislation; you don’t have to exploit a tragedy to do so.
Meanwhile, his entire political agenda has all-but burned to the ground (unlike his home) and voters are turning on the Democrats as a result.
Biden can repeat any lie he wants, but there’s one key fact he can’t escape from:
The American people are fed up.
Let’s Go Brandon!
