PATHOLOGICAL: Biden Lies About Going To Ground Zero The Day After 9/11

President Joe Biden commemorated the 22nd anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks Monday at a military base in Anchorage, Alaska, during which he recalled “looking at the building” as he stood at Ground Zero the next day. The problem? He was in Washington, D.C. on 9/12/01, not New York City.

“I join you on this solemn day to renew our sacred vow, ‘never forget,” Biden said.

“I remember standing [at Ground Zero] the next day and looking at the building. I felt like I was looking through the gates of hell.”

The Senate was in session on 9/12/01, and Joe Biden voted at 1:45 pm on a resolution condemning the attacks after speaking on the floor. He wasn’t in New York; just tack this statement on his growing mountain of lies.

Separately, but also notable, is the fact that Joe Biden is now the first US president not to attend a memorial at one of the attack sites on a 9/11 anniversary.

  1. Biden along with a bunch of other Democratic and Republican Senators visited the Pentagon version of Ground Zero a day or two after 9/11. He did not visit the WTC but by now, its routine for him to misstate simple facts.
    As you recall, his predecessor also had some challenges recounting his 9/11 experiences. Trump claimed he helped remove the rubble from the WTC site. While he did visit the site, there is ZERO evidence that he got down to help clear rubble (which would certainly would have been remembered or recorded for posterity). He also claimed to have watched real time out of his condo window and saw the planes crash into the towers and people jumping out of the windows. Trump Tower is four miles from the WTC site and it is physically impossible to have seen people jump from the buildings during the attacks. Trump also claimed that he “lost hundreds of friends” at the WTC though when journalists inquired about their identities, he was unable to produce even a single name of a friend lost on 9/11.

    Why do these stupid political hacks have to lie about something where their lies are so easily detected

  2. Or he meant the next week not the next day as he first went on 9/20 with a group of senators.
    I doubt he was intentionally lying, he likely got confused or misspoke.

  3. You can’t have it both ways. If you claim he is senile, and easily confused, and scrambling memories of events that happened a long time ago – you can also claim he is pathological liar. It’s one or the other.

  4. @chareidi amiti it’s nice to be able to post whatever you want online factual or not.

    There is actual video of Trump there and being interviewed at the site on how he has a few hundred of his own people there helping dig through the rubble looking for survivors….

  5. This is not the first time he’s used that bizarre “lyin’ dog-faced pony soldier” line, and to this day nobody knows where he got it from. There is no John Wayne movie with that line.
