In Brief: Biden’s Worst Lies From the Past Year

His poll numbers are great, he created millions of new jobs, there is no border crisis, and more!

“Joe Biden is a notorious liar who has turned his entire life story into a work of fiction,” says political analyst Matt Margolis. He has a long history of now-countless lies that our Mark Alexander compiled a year ago. That propensity for lying naturally bleeds into Biden’s pronouncements about the job he’s doing now. Margolis notes a few.

His poll numbers aren’t that bad

If you follow the polls, you know that things look pretty bleak for Joe Biden. His approval ratings have been underwater since his botched withdrawal from Afghanistan, and he not only loses to Donald Trump but to all Republican presidential contenders in most match-up polling. Last month, Biden was questioned about why he was losing to Trump, and he told the reporter, “You’re reading the wrong polls.” …

He is ‘healthy and vigorous’

It doesn’t take a medical professional to see that Joe Biden isn’t well. He is physically weak and mentally frail, and the White House tries its best to hide it by sending Biden off on vacation for 40% of his presidency. But his limited public appearances reveal the truth. In fact, polls show that a bipartisan majority of Americans believe Biden isn’t capable of handling the presidency. Yet last February, a couple months in advance of his official 2024 campaign announcement, White House physician Kevin O'Connor declared that Joe Biden remains a “healthy, vigorous 80-year-old male who is fit to successfully execute the duties of the presidency.” …

Those polls and health concerns are undoubtedly increasing pressure on Democrats to shove Biden’s wheelchair off the stage in 2024.

Then there’s Biden’s record as president.

He created 14 million jobs

Since the early months of his presidency, Biden has claimed to have a record of job creation that surpasses all of his predecessors for the last forty years. By his own accounting, he’s now created 14 million jobs since taking office. If this were true, his reelection campaign would be a mere formality and he’d cruise to victory in November. However, Biden’s claims of unmatched job growth have been so absurdly misleading that even CNN has called him out for his deceptions. Last year, after Biden made a similar claim during his State of the Union address, CNN fact-checked him, pointing out that he “took office in an unusual pandemic context that makes meaningful comparison to other periods very difficult.” …

There is no border crisis

Even before taking office, Joe Biden laid down the welcome mat for illegal aliens, creating a historic border crisis — not that he or his administration have ever admitted it. For the past three years, the official position of the administration has been that the border is secure. It hasn’t been until recently that the administration has made some sort of play to curb the influx of illegal immigrants, which I highly doubt is genuine in the first place. …

Inflation is going down

Perhaps no other issue is hurting Joe Biden more than inflation. Prices have gone up so much since he took office that people are hurting badly, as wages can’t keep up with the rising cost of goods and gas. Knowing that a president’s chances of reelection are so closely tied to the economy, Biden not only tried to claim that the economy is doing great but that inflation is going down — even though it is not. What’s really happening is that the rate of inflation has slowed, but prices are still significantly higher today than they were when he took office.

Margolis concludes by touching on the trouble Biden has with his family’s corruption, which is particularly galling and hypocritical after four years of hyperventilating about Trump and Russia. There’s plenty of evidence to justify the GOP’s impeachment inquiry, despite contrary protests from Biden and his media cheerleaders.

Ultimately, Margolis says, “The cacophony of his lies continues to this day as he attempts to make the case for four more years in the Oval Office, and hoo boy, have he and the White House told some whoppers to deny reality.”
