Joe Biden defended the heartfelt war story he told a New Hampshire crowd last week as having gotten its 'essence' correct after an analysis showed it was nearly entirely fabricated, or a combination of unrelated memories.
The former vice president brushed aside a Washington Post report showing he got numerous details wrong when he talked about awarding a Navy war hero the Silver Star.
'The assertion I made was there was a young man that I attempted to pin a medal on at the request of the commander and he said "I dont want it. He died. He died." It turns out thats true. The young man did say that,' Biden told The Washington Post of his tale of awarding a medal to a soldier who told Biden he didn't want it because the colleague he was trying to save died.
'They went back, Im told I didnt see the story but, yeah, its exactly true. Thats what I was talking about. There was a separate incident that occurred in a different time and a different circumstance. But what I was talking about was a young man. I mean, what is the gaffe when I said there is a young man I tried to pin a medal on and he said "I dont want it sir. He died. He died. He died,"' Biden said.

Ode de bullshit
So whenever Trump says that Puerto Rico got $92 billion in hurricane aid when only about $40 billion was appropriate and only $14 billion actually spent will the media stop giving him grief because “he got the essence right”?
Pick a subject, and Ol Chains has made a story up about it.
They almost always involve dead people that cant say, WTH are you talking about.
Slow Joe is like those places where signs say, Antiques made Daily, except Joey doesnt have the Integrity to say he makes up stories for Political benefit.
I guarantee you his camp doesnt see he Career-long habit of lying as the problem, but rather, having it reported in the Paper.
Gifts to Press, calls to Management, etc. is the plan.
MY WORD AS A BIDEN
That statement alone shows Slow Joe should be institutionalized.
The Bidens are a bunch of crooks.
BUMP. Federal pen institution.
What is really pathetic is Biden telling the story at all, as if ‘good character’ by association means Biden is a good guy.
There he was ‘soldiers’ fallen to the right & left of him.
Down to his last shot!
So he drank it and left!
Well, unlike a certain General Ripper, he sounds like he is willing to share his essense with women.
Keep this insane and dangerous man away for being our president!
“I had to check to make sure this wasnt from the Babylon Bee or The Onion.”
The Babylon Bee and The Onion have higher standards and would not allow this bs to be broadcast under their names.
It turns out thats true. The young man did say that,' Biden told The Washington Post of his tale of awarding a medal to a soldier who told Biden he didn't want it because the colleague he was trying to save died.
'They went back, Im told I didnt see the story but, yeah, its exactly true. Thats what I was talking about.

He’s taken this response right from AOC’s playbook “I think that there’s a lot of people more concerned about being precisely, factually and semantically correct than about being morally right.” — AOC

FR THREAD POSTED——Three CNN staffers have resigned following the publication and subsequent retraction of a story linking a Trump transition team member to the Russia-related investigations.
The piece, published late last week, cited an anonymous source saying the Senate Intelligence Committee was looking into the chief executive of a $10-billion Russian investment fund who met with financier Anthony Scaramucci before the inauguration. The report also said that two Democratic senators wanted to know whether Scaramucci had indicated in the meeting whether sanctions against Russia would be lifted, a decision that could impact the investment fund.
Out are: The reporter, Pulitzer-Prize nominee Thomas Frank; assistant managing editor Eric Lichtblau (who recently joined from the New York Times and is a Pulitzer winner himself); and Lex Haris, the executive editor in charge of investigations.
“In the aftermath of the retraction of a story published on CNN.com, CNN has accepted the resignations of the employees involved in the story’s publication,” CNN said in a statement.
Stop the hammering for a second, ODonnell. You stepped on a rake. This was avoidable.
The facts were wrong, but the narrative was right.
So essentially he’s just like every other Democrat.
He can make up all the stories he wants with all the right essence....
.. still doesn’t have a policy or a background of being any good for America
