Biden tells a lie a minute during CNN interview

The White House rarely allows President Biden to sit down for interviews, and Wednesday’s chat with CNN’s Erin Burnett shows why.

In a brief 17 minutes, Biden told 15 lies — nearly a lie a minute.

From whoppers about the economy to prevarications on Israel, Biden spun a fantasyland of a presidency that v**ers know is false.

President Biden’s interview with Erin Burnett on CNN was full of lies.
Here’s a rundown:


LIE 1: “I’ve created over 15 million jobs since I’ve been president.”

He took office at the tail end of a p******c that blew a hole in the economy, when lockdown policies wholeheartedly endorsed by Democrats took people out of the office and onto C***D stimulus checks.

He “created” nothing — after the introduction of the v*****e, people returned to the workforce.

If anything, Biden’s policies slowed the recovery — it took until July 2022 for the US economy to regain all the jobs lost due to the p******c.



LIE 2: “Other than Herbert Hoover, [Donald Trump] is the only president who has lost more jobs than he created.”

The corollary lie.

Trump didn’t “lose” jobs; he was president during a global p******c.

And liberals were thrilled to put people on government checks and shut down the world during C***D.

They cannot argue that the job market would have been any different in 2020 under a Democrat.



LIE 3: “Look at what he says he’s going to do if he gets elected. Says he’s going to do away with what I’ve done on Medicare, reducing the price of Medicare.”

There’s no basis for this, as Trump has said he “will never do anything that will hurt or jeopardize Social Security or Medicare.”

Further, Trump pursued the exact same executive orders to lower prescription drug prices as did Biden.



LIE 4: “You know we have 1,000 billionaires in America. Know what their average federal tax is? 8.3%.”

Factcheck.org notes, “The top 0.1% of earners, with more than $4.4 million in expanded cash income, pay an average rate of 25.1% in federal income and payroll taxes.”



LIE 5: “We’ve already turned it around [on the economy].”

Burnett quoted some tough figures on the economy, noting that the cost of buying a home had doubled, and “Real income when you account for inflation is actually down since you took office.”

Biden’s response?

Denial.



LIE 6: “The polling data has been wrong all along.”

Trump leads Biden in all seven swing states, according to an Emerson College poll released Tuesday.

Every survey that says people are upset about the economy?

Every poll that puts Biden’s approval rating at historic lows?

They are all of them, from dozens of different sources, wrong?



LIE 7: “There’s corporate greed going out there. And it’s got to be dealt with.”

Labor costs increased 4.2% between 2023 and 2024.

They increased 5.1% from 2021 to 2022.

The costs of everything, from supplies to shipping, rent and taxes, have gone up.

Why?

Because of the huge amount of government money injected into the system, minimum-wage increases by California and other states, and pent-up demand by consumers.

How is Biden going to “deal with it”?

Tell companies they can’t raise prices to avoid losing money?



LIE 8: “[Inflation] was 9% when I came to office.”

This is the lie of the night.

Biden continues to pretend that the US was in terrible shape when he took office, when it was already on the rebound — thanks to Trump’s Warp Speed project that v******ted people quickly against C***D.

Inflation was a measly 1.4% in January 2021.

Then Biden went on a first-year drunken-sailor spending spree, and inflation skyrocketed.



LIE 9: “They have the money to spend. It angers them and angers me that they have to spend more.”

They have the money to spend?

According to Bankrate, 76% of adults making less than $50,000 a year are living from paycheck to paycheck, an increase from 71% the year before that.

Biden need only watch the nightly news to see people cutting back on groceries, gas — even trips to McDonald’s — because their spending power has decreased.



LIE 10: “Civilians have been k**led in Gaza as a consequence of those bombs, and other ways in which they go after population centers.”

It’s libel to suggest that Israel is deliberating targeting population centers.

Hamas embeds itself among the civilian population, creating bases inside hospitals and digging tunnels under residential apartments.

Israel has been warning the people of Rafah for more than a week to move to a safe zone outside the city.

They do not “go after” population centers, they work hard to minimize deaths while stopping the terrorists who kidnapped, raped and murdered Israeli civilians.



LIE 11: “We’re not walking away from Israel’s security. We’re walking away from Israel’s ability to wage war in those areas.”

But defeating Hamas is integral to Israel’s security.

How does Biden suggest Israel win the war if it leaves the last stronghold of the terrorist group untouched?




LIE 12: “It made no sense in my view to engage in thinking in Iraq they have a nuclear weapon.”

Biden brought this up, saying he warned Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu not to “make the mistakes” we made in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Except Biden v**ed in favor of invading Iraq.

So Biden may regret that decision today, but it made sense to him back them.



LIE 13: “You can’t only love your country when you win.”

Someone had better tell all the celebrities and elites in the Democratic Party who claim they are going to move if Trump is re-elected, or say they “don’t know their country anymore,” or who burn American f**gs as they rally for Hamas.

Biden’s chiding of Trump with this line would carry more weight if he said it to his own v**ers.



LIE 14: “I travel around the world, other world leaders, know what they all say, 80% of them, ‘You gotta win. My democracy is at stake.’ ”

Maybe we can’t say this is absolutely a lie, but it sure sounds like one of those statements for which the press loves to go after Trump.

Are other world leaders really pulling Biden aside after his nap and saying “democracy is at stake” if he loses? Give us a break.

Many were concerned with the future of American democracy when Trump supporters stormed the US Capitol over the 2020 p**********l e******n results.



LIE 15: “Then [Trump] is going to put in a 10% tax that’s going to increase average Americans’ cost $1,500 a year.”

Trump has proposed no such tax. Perhaps Biden means Trump’s plan for a 10% tariff on imported goods, which may or may not cost Americans more money.

You know who else is considering imposing tariffs? Biden. Just this week, under the headline “Biden Looks to Thwart Surge of Chinese Imports,” the New York Times notes that China is using unfair business practices and Biden wants to counter it.

Why are you talking about Biden when Trump is on trial for felonies? Keep an eye on the facts, and shy away from the propaganda.

I'm sorry you don't understand - Trump allegedly paid hush money to a woman that he had sex with to keep her mouth shut - the money was paid through a proxy as a business expense - last time I checked that's not a legit expense - that's a misdemeanor. He allegedly did it so as not to cast him in a poor light in the course of an e******n - that makes it a felony. It was done multiple times - multiple felonies.

BTW From a moral standpoint, it is more than a little hypocritical on the part of the right after being critical of Bill Clinton for getting a bj from a chubby intern - to not find it objectionable to Trump playing hide the salami with a porn star and a Playboy Bunny while his wife was pregnant with his son Baron. So much for Republican Family Values.

Psst: I'll tell you a secret - all politician stretch the t***h - nope, they all pretty much lie.

The t***h will set them free; they won't get elected.

Trump has turned lying into an art form. His denying the e******n of 2020 was kosher will haunt the American e*****rate for the foreseeable future. Its really scary that Al Gore who had a much better case to question the Bush e******n had the integrity to not push the e******n once the courts ruled. PS before you rant about me being a Gore fan; I v**ed for Bush II both times.

And, once again, the Bidophile cult joins in to turn this discussion about Biden's lies into a display of their out of control TDS.

I know if you h**e Trump, you love Biden. Unfortunately not so. Most of us down in the trenches don't want either, or worm brain (Kennedy) either.

As far as being delusional - I think that falls straight into your camp. Trump's history includes a f**e charity, a f**e university, stiffing a lot of investors and contractors in Atlantic city, blowing the C***D response (one day its just going to go away - it hasn't), calling our sacred war dead losers and suckers and broadcasting the f**e dialogue that the 2020 e******n was s****n. He has changed philosophies per "On the Issues:"


"Moderate populist" (2003)
"Liberal-leaning populist" (2003–2011)
"Moderate populist conservative" (2011–2012)
"Libertarian-leaning conservative" (2012–2013)
"Moderate conservative" (2013–2014)
"Libertarian-leaning conservative" (2014–2015)
"Hard-core conservative" (2015)
"Libertarian-leaning conservative" (2015–2016)
"Moderate conservative" (2016–2017)
"Hard-core conservative" (2017–present)

He has consistently been inconsistent and now you Trumpers think he's the alpha and omega of conservative thought? You are wrong - Trump is neither Democrat or Republican, he is strictly for himself.

He leaves wreckage wherever he goes; he should never be given the chance to be President again.

Not all conservatives like Trump. Between Trump and Biden, well I was better off four years ago than now.
My food is up over 20%. Gasoline up 50%. Utilities up 8%+. Medical supplies are Up 30%.
My income is up only 4%.
My disposable income is down over 10% because of Biden.

I can't afford 4 more years of Biden.

You are expressing the sentiments of a lot of conservatives and independents.
