White House Has to Walk Back Another Biden Lie
Joe Biden can’t seem to stop making things up, even when it comes to something as potentially significant as being tested for COVID when he has cold symptoms.
Biden was asked by Fox’s Peter Doocy what was wrong when it was clear that Biden was sick because of the hoarse nature of his voice.
Biden claimed on Friday, “I have a test every day to see — a COVID test. They check me for all the strains.”
Q: “Your voice sounds a little different. Are you okay?”
BIDEN: “I’m okay. I have a test every day, a COVID test…What I have is a 1-&-a-half-year-old grandson who had a cold who likes to kiss his pop. And he’d been kissing my—anyway—it’s just a cold.”pic.twitter.com/nfVJaNMl6L

He claimed that he caught a cold from kissing his grandson, repeatedly coughing during his remarks at the podium.
But then the White House had to walk back what Biden said, saying he wasn’t tested daily for COVID, saying he’d only been tested three times this week – after he started having COVID-like symptoms.
Biden’s physician, Kevin C. O’Connor, said in a memo to reporters after the president spoke noting that the president was suffering from “increased nasal congestion.”
“This can be heard in his voice and he is feeling the colloquially well-known ‘frog in ones throat,’” he wrote.
Biden’s physician released a memo Friday afternoon noting the president was tested with a “comprehensive respiratory panel” which included “19 common respiratory pathogens” including COVID-19, other coronaviruses, influenza, and streptococcus but that it “came back negative.”
JUST IN: White House releases a letter from @POTUS Biden’s doctor, clarifying that the baritone he’s sporting this week is merely a “frog in one’s throat.” The letter adds that the president has been tested 3x this week for #COVID19. pic.twitter.com/oHJWqwt5Kk

Psaki said Biden would not be tested daily and took some cold medication for the symptoms.
Meanwhile, Biden went out to a restaurant that evening, when he still had whatever he was sick with and was seen in a restaurant without a mask on. He was supposedly dropping in on a family dinner.
So, at what point do Americans say enough is enough with Biden just making things up without regard to truth or reality? He does it from being tested every day to making imaginary conversations with people like Angelo Negri, the retired Amtrak train conductor.
This is something that goes beyond his cognitive decline because he’s been making up things all his political career. It’s why he was never taken seriously until they needed to recast him as a “comfortable moderate” because they were desperate to beat Trump. But now, they’re stuck with the situation they created.
Because Biden lies so much, how do we even know what he’s saying is true now? Do we have to hope that the doctor is telling the truth? That’s the problem with someone who lies so much — you don’t know that you can ever trust them. That’s not someone who we should have occupying the White House.

Notes from the Editor
When I was younger, I remember my father telling me, after lying about something to him, “You lie so much that you can’t even tell what the truth is any longer!” Later, as a father, I had to tell my son the same thing; I am beginning to wonder, did Biden ever have anyone tell him this, and if not, maybe I should send my father over there to explain this to him.
Don’t get me wrong, over time, memories change, not that this is on purpose. I remember reading that after a mind takes memory and reviews it time after time, changing it a little each time, over the years, the memory does change to the point that there is little that is the actual memory and much is the revised one. This is why when you hear stories about the same event from multiple people, years later, each person has a much different memory of the event.
But this is not what Biden is doing, and he has made claims that have nothing to do with reality or tainted memories; they never happened. He makes it up as he goes. This is pathological lying.
This creates a problem; one does not know if Biden should believe anything. Don’t get me wrong; all politicians lie. They do it as easily as they breathe. But this is more for political means, most don’t lie their heads off about everyday events, about past events, but Biden and many of the Democrats seem to. It seems the Democrat party is the party of duplicity and perfidious politicians; maybe we should change their name to the Two-Face Party.
