Biden Angrily Defends Pushing Charlottesville Lie

Joe Biden got into a verbal altercation with a reporter who pointed out that the former vice president was pushing an easily debunked hoax about comments made by Donald Trump in the aftermath of Charlottesville.

Joel Pollak, host of ‘Breitbart News Tonight’ on Sirius XM radio, confronted Biden about the narrative at the Iowa State Fair.

Biden and the Democrats have repeatedly lambasted Trump for saying “there were some very fine people on both sides” following a rally in 2017 which led to the death of Heather Heyer.

When Pollak noted that simply isn’t the case, that the media took statements out of context to portray Trump as a defender of neo-Nazis, Biden nearly blew a gasket.

“Mr. Vice President, are you aware that you’re misquoting Donald Trump in Charlottesville, he never called neo-Nazis ‘very fine people’?” Pollak asked.

“He said specifically that he was condemning them,” Pollak added.

“He did not,” Biden said, denying the very clear and indisputable fact that the President actually condemned the hate groups. “Let’s get this straight. He said there were very fine people in both groups. They were chanting anti-Semitic slogans, carrying flags.”

Biden, of course, is flat-out lying.

Let’s Get This Straight

Since Biden wants to get facts straight, let’s go ahead and do that by all means.

In the very same press conference, within seconds of making the ‘fine people’ comment referring to the peaceful protestors in Charlottesville, the President specifically called out the bigots at the rally.

“I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists,” Trump said, “because they should be condemned totally.”

Additionally, Trump again clarified that there were fine people on both sides of the protest but insisted this did not include the hateful neo-Nazis and nationalists.

“There were people in that rally … protesting very quietly … I’m sure in that group there were some bad ones,” he explained. “The following day, it looked like they had some rough, bad people, neo-Nazis, white nationalists, whatever you want to call ‘em.”

The line between who was good and who was bad at that rally was very clearly defined by President Trump. The media, Biden, and the rest of the fringe candidates in the Democrat party have all decided to lie in concert to the American people.
