    Biden tells a porky

    Joe Biden told moving military story at campaign stop but it 'never happened,' report says

    Former Vice President Joe Biden's campaign has been dogged by gaffes -- but a new error could be his most damaging yet.

    The controversy surrounds a moving military story -- which the former VP claimed to be the "God's truth" -- that Biden told at a campaign stop in New Hampshire earlier this month.

    The only problem was that the story was not true, according to The Washington Post. Biden was quick to respond to the allegation on Thursday, speaking to a Washington Post's Cape Up podcast. I was making the point how courageous these people are, how incredible they are, this generation of warriors, these fallen angels weve lost, he said. I dont know what the problem is. What is it that I said wrong?

    Earlier, Biden's allegedly tall tale was an emotional account of his decision to travel to Afghanistan, despite concerns about visiting a war-torn area, in order to honor a Navy captain for retrieving the body of his dead comrade during battle.

    According to Biden, he brushed off concerns about the risk of him traveling to the deadly area. We can lose a vice president, he said, recounting his words to a crowd during an event on Friday. We cant lose many more of these kids. Not a joke. His story involved the captain dramatically telling Biden he didn't want the medal because his comrade ended up dying.

    But after speaking with more than a dozen military and campaign sources, the Post determined the event "never happened" and that "almost every detail in the story appears to be incorrect."

    "It appears as though the former vice president has jumbled elements of at least three actual events into one story," the Post's Matt Viser and Greg Jaffe wrote.

    They added that Biden rattled off a slew of inaccurate facts in the span of just a few minutes.

    "In the space of three minutes, Biden got the time period, the location, the heroic act, the type of medal, the military branch and the rank of the recipient wrong, as well as his own role in the ceremony," Viser and Jaffe wrote.

    The Post reported that the crowd of 400 people in Hanover fell "silent" and the former vice president gave his "word as a Biden" that the story was true on Friday.

    I am thinking that if Biden is the Democrat candidate and he does win the election, at least we will have a very entertaining four years. It will be like a Monty Python skit.

    It's like he thinks he shouldn't be factchecked.

    Reminds me of when Brian Williams was going around telling about being shot down in a helicopter.

    Or Hillary landing under sniper fire.

    The question is, did Biden know he was lying, or is he so addled that he is no longer able to distinguish truth from fiction?

    He gave his word as a Biden!

    Usually when a politician makes a point to mention how honest he is, you need to start checking your pockets and counting your fingers after shaking their hand.

    My favorite moment from the 2016 campaign season was when a Democrat candidate for governor said he admired Hillary for her honesty, and the audience began to laugh!
