Joe Biden was called a liar on Thursday after falsely claiming MAGA Republicans want to defund the police.
Biden was rightly torched for his false claims, given that far-left Demcorats have been calling to defund police for years in the face of fierce opposition from Republicans.
During a speech at a union training center in Philadelphia, Biden said: “And so folks, look, MAGA Republicans are calling for defunding the police departments …” Fox News reported.
The statement in itself contrasts what has been happening over the last five years. As you can recall, many leftists have hell-bent on defunding the police, whereas MAGA Republicans oppose such demands.
Here is an example:
But Biden’s claims didn’t wash with people who have been paying attention, with many prominent individuals giving Biden a massive dose of facts.
“This is one of the most absurd attempts to re-write history we’ve ever seen,” Dan K. Eberhart, a CEO, author, and commentator, tweeted.
“Democrats spent two years demanding we defund police, yet now they want to say Republicans were the ones doing this? Who do they think is going to believe this garbage?”
MRCTV echoed Eberhart’s words, tweeting that Biden is “seriously trying rewrite history by falsely claiming Republicans, not Democrats, want to defund police. In reality, Democrats spent two years pushing soft-on-crime and ‘defund the police’ laws.”
Washington Examiner columnist Ian Haworth also jumped in, tweeting, “At this point, there are only two options: 1) He honestly believes these things, and therefore doesn’t have a grasp on reality. 2) He knows he’s lying through his teeth and doesn’t give a f***. Neither of these are good, y’all.”
PJ Media columnist Ryan Ledendecker followed up by tweeting, “Dementia is so sad, yet fascinating to observe in real-time.”
Twitter personality James Bradley wrote, “It’s like a bad standup routine at this point. All you can do is laugh.”
When you thought Biden’s lies could not get more ridiculous, he followed up by claiming that MAGA Republicans also want to defund the FBI.
Former House of Representatives candidate Josh Barnett took Biden out with a brutal response to his claims saying, “All he does is lie…no MAGA Republican ever said to defund police!!! But we did say defund the crooked FBI ’til they stop attacking Americans for political retaliation.”
