Some readers might think this is a relatively inconsequential flub. But we disagree. Every U.S. president has a responsibility to get American history correct, especially when heís using a supposed history lesson in service of a political objective. The presidentís push for more gun restrictions is an important part of his political platform, so he undercuts his cause when he cites faux facts.
Moreover, Biden has already been fact-checked on this claim ó and itís been deemed false. We have no idea where he conjured up this notion about a ban on cannon ownership in the early days of the Republic, but he needs to stop making this claim.
Joe has been, increasingly, lately, as time goes on, a shameless liar.
Shameless. Ridiculous. Moronic. Well, clearly not moron...certainly demented...
...to the point that even Joe's buds at the WaPo have to give in and give him FOUR PINOCCHIOS.
And, gang, this is at a time when it appears that there's an opportunity for "common sense gun regulation."
The last thing America needs right now is a Doddering Old Fool muddying up the debate.
