Biden Caught In Another Speech Forgetting Basic Facts About Himself…

President Joe Biden delivered a gaffe-filled speech on Labor Day in Philadelphia when he not only gave the incorrect date for his own inauguration but also appeared to forget which state first elected him to the U.S. Senate.

“I wouldn’t have been elected to the United States Senate in the first place were it not for Philadelphia,” Biden claimed, adding, “That’s not a joke.”

The main flaw in Biden’s assertion is that, although claiming Scranton as his hometown, he never represented Pennsylvania. He was 29 when he was elected to the United States Senate from nearby Delaware, and he has never represented any other state.

Biden went on to thank the audience for helping him get to the White House — but he messed up on the date he actually arrived, missing the mark by a whole year.

“… since you got me sworn in in January of 2020!” he said 

Although Biden won the 2020 election, his inauguration did not take place until January 0f 2021.


Biden continued to tout his economics policies — despite the rampant inflation and gas prices that are still causing pain to American families — and claim as he has before that “Bidenomics … is working.”

Saying that “everyone on Wall Street” was calling his agenda “Bidenomics” as well, the president added, “And guess what? It’s working!”

As the Republican National Committee pointed out, “Since Biden took office, overall inflation is up almost 16% while grocery prices are up nearly 20%.”

Biden once again brought out his oft-repeated claim that he “cut the deficit $1.7 trillion” — after which he appeared to correct himself and then claim he’d “cut the debt $1.7 trillion.”

However, the national debt has climbed by just about $2.5 trillion since Biden assumed office, not decreased. Any deficit reduction has been attributed to the expiration of COVID-relief funding, and the actual deficit reduction under Biden has been substantially less than the Congressional Budget Office expected. CNN fact-checker Daniel Dale remarked in May 2022 that the difference was a direct outcome of the Biden administration’s economic policies.

But hey, no mean tweets, amirite?
