Joe Biden just told a massive lie on camera. He claimed during a campaign event that there were no lies or scandals in the Obama administration. That’s just laughable.
Joe clearly thinks the media is going to cover for him like they did for Obama. He’s so wrong.
Breitbart has details:
Joe Biden: ‘Wasn’t One Single Hint of a Scandal or a Lie’ in Obama Years
Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed Wednesday that there were no scandals or lies in the Obama-Biden administration.
“Know what I was most proud of?” he asked voters in Iowa. “For eight years, there wasn’t one single hint of a scandal or a lie.”
Video of his remark was captured by The Hill.

Joe knows this isn’t true. He’s just counting on not getting challenged about it.
Here’s a reminder from The Federalist:
Hey Joe Biden, Here Are Some Scandals You Forgot
“Know what I was most proud of?” presidential candidate Joe Biden told a crowd on Wednesday. “For eight years, there wasn’t one single hint of a scandal or a lie.”
In an era where every presidential tweet is an existential threat to democracy, there are probably plenty of people who believe this myth. Off the bat, though, it should be mentioned that even liberal factchecking outfit PolitiFact once awarded Barack Obama the “Lie of Year” for misleading the American people about his technocratic health-care plan….
“If you like your health care plan, you can keep it” was only one of an array of demonstrably false statements fed to the public to give (now-extinct) moderate Democrats cover. You might remember one of Obamacare’s architects, Jonathan Gruber, explaining how this “lack of transparency” compounded by “the stupidity of the American voter” was a huge political advantage for the administration. Or maybe you don’t.
How many Americans knew, for instance, that “Operation Fast and Furious” put around 2,000 weapons into the hands of narco-traffickers (and an Islamic terrorist), leading to the murder of hundreds of Mexican citizens, and at least one American, a border agent named Brian Terry? Not enough.
And that’s just a sample.
Who does Joe think he’s fooling here?
