How many times does Joe Biden have to lie about his past before mainstream media nail him for it?
In 1988 he expropriated part of British MP Neil Kinnock’s past, when he plagiarized Kinnock’s speech – an action so egregious it pretty much knocked him out of that year’s presidential race (yes, he has been running for President that long).
Since then, he has told us he was the first in his family to go to college (he wasn’t), and graduated in the top half of his law class (he graduated 76th out of 85).
And there were others as well.
But how about now? How about this campaign? Has Joe Biden finally stopped lying about his past?
In a word, no.
From Valerie Richardson’s article for the Washington Times:
Joseph R. Biden declared last year on the campaign trail that he began his academic career at Delaware State University, a historically Black college, a claim that the school refutes.
Carlos Holmes, director of news service for Delaware State, said that Mr. Biden was never a student, although he has made appearances twice on campus for commencement speeches at the public university in Dover, one of the nation’s historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs).
Asking again: how many times does Joe Biden have to lie about his past before mainstream media nail him for it? Since we haven’t found the outer limit yet, we can’t say for sure.
Maybe if Biden claims that he went from Delaware State straight to Oxford and got his PhD from the University of Atlantis…
