President Joe Biden continues to spew lie after lie and the media fails to call him out on it.
Last Thursday, Biden claimed that he visited the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh after a white supremacist terrorist attack that killed 11 people in 2018.
“I remember spending time at the, you know, uh, going to, uh, the, uh, you know, the Tree of Life synagogue, speaking with them,” Biden said during remarks while speaking with Jewish leaders, later clarifying that he was talking about the attacks in Pittsburgh at the site of the synagogue.
The comment was a blatant lie.
“Barb Feige, executive director of the Tree of Life, said that Biden did not visit the synagogue in the nearly three years since the anti-Semitic attack,” the New York Post reported. “In a phone interview, Feige, executive director since July 2019, said firmly that ‘no’ Biden didn’t visit, even before taking office when he had a lower public profile as a former vice president and then-Democratic presidential candidate.”

Biden immediately got called out online.
“Discrepancy? You mean Joe Biden flat out lied about visiting Tree of Life synagogue,” the Republican Jewish Coalition tweeted. “The ultimate irony: the person who actually did visit in 2018 with members of the Jewish community? His predecessor.”

“Wow. Biden lies about visiting Tree of Life synagogue in the aftermath of the tragedy in call with Jewish leaders,” RJC Executive Director Matt Brooks tweeted. “That is not normal or ok.”
