What’s Eating Joe?

Joe Biden has told countless whoppers, but this one is a doozie: he says his uncle was eaten by cannibals in New Guinea. Seriously:

He told the story twice in one day:

Actually, Joe’s uncle’s plane was went down, for unknown reasons, over open water. The plane sank and several crewmen went down with it. Their bodies were not found, but they weren’t eaten by cannibals.

You can see in these videos how feeble Biden is. He doesn’t make sense on even the most basic points. For example, he says that his uncles all went down to the recruiting station and volunteered the day after D-Day. Which would have been a little late. In fact, Joe’s uncle’s plane crashed a month before D-Day. No doubt Biden meant to refer to Pearl Harbor. But he can hardly get through a sentence without descending into incoherence.

In one of these speeches, Biden talked about his son Beau serving in Iraq and “coming home with” brain cancer. In fact, Beau died six years after he returned from a year’s service in Iraq as a lawyer. To my knowledge, there is no evidence of a connection between his service in Iraq and his cancer.

More seriously, in both speeches Biden repeated the lie about Donald Trump calling soldiers killed in battle “losers.” That fabrication was spread by Trump-hater Jeffrey Goldberg, and is endlessly repeated by Biden.
