Joe Biden is a pathological liar. There are countless examples of him exaggerating about his past or telling outright lies.
He has gotten sloppy about this over the years because the media hasn’t always called him out for doing it.
He recently spoke at a historically black college in South Carolina, and made bogus claims about his involvement in the civil rights movement.

RNC says Biden ‘lies’ about desegregation efforts in Delaware
The Republican National Committee pushed back Friday on President Joe Biden’s claim to have desegregated restaurants and theaters during the 1960s, quoting Biden himself.
Biden made the remark in a commencement address to a historically black college in South Carolina.
“This is all a lie, one he’s told over and over and over and over again,” RNC Deputy Rapid Response Director Kyle Martinsen said in a statement.
Martinsen pointed to comments Biden made in 1987, when the then-senator described himself as sympathetic to the cause of civil rights and having worked at an “all-black swimming pool on the east side of Wilmington, Delaware” but not as an activist.
“I was not an activist. … I was not out marching,” Biden stated. “I was not down in Selma. I was not anywhere else.”
Biden said during his speech at South Carolina State University that he had attended a black church and then went out to help desegregate public accomodations in the area.
“Biden didn’t attend a Black church. He wasn’t out marching for civil rights as a teen,” the RNC statement continued. “What he was doing, decades later, was befriending white supremacists and destroying millions of Black lives.”

Maybe he really believes this. That happens to people with dementia sometimes.
