Joe Biden visited a Mack Truck facility in Pennsylvania this week and in the course of his remarks claimed that he once drove an 18-wheeler.
Biden has been working in politics in Washington, DC for almost 50 years.
When do you suppose he worked as a trucker?
FOX News reports:
Biden raises eyebrows with claim he ‘used to drive’ 18-wheeler truck
Forty-eight-year political veteran President Biden raised eyebrows on Wednesday when he claimed to have driven an 18-wheeler truck — a claim the White House struggled to defend.
Biden was visiting a Mack Truck facility in Pennsylvania when he made the claim to have driven the massive trucks before, which require a special kind of license.
“I used to drive an 18-wheeler, man,” Biden said on Wednesday in a video posted to Twitter. “I got to.”
There is scant evidence that Biden has ever driven an 18-wheeler truck.
When asked if the president had ever driven such a truck, a White House spokesperson pointed to a December 1973 article from the Wilmington Evening Journal that showed Biden rode in an 18-wheeler on a 536-mile haul to Ohio.
Fox News pressed the spokesperson about the president’s claim – noting that riding in a truck is not the same as driving one – at which point the president’s spokesperson pointed to a United Federation of Teachers post that touched on Biden driving a school bus in the past as a summer job.

This reminds me of the time Joe said he was arrested in South Africa as he tried to meet Nelson Mandela.😆
