Biden has been pitching this obvious lie since the day he launched his presidential run. And he has no intention of walking it back.
If he’s ‘married’ to this lie, for nothing more than scoring partisan points, what OTHER things will Mr. Plagarism lie about?
Let’s look at the lie almost ALL of the 2020 Dem hopefuls are adopting.
Here’s Joe doubling down on it right here:
Breitbart's @JoelPollak confronts Joe Biden for repeatedly lying about Trump's response to Charlottesville
Trump said: "I'm not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists, because they should be condemned totally"

It’s the “very fine people on both sides” gaslighting.
In the exact conversation they pulled this quote from, not sixty seconds later, Trump tells us who he does and does NOT mean with the ‘both sides’ reference. He DOES mean the ordinary protesters on either side of the ‘should we rename the park issue’.
Not surprisingly, like EVERY other issue, the local public disagreed on what should be done.
He did NOT mean — and in fact, specifically excluded — the toxic protesters on both sides. The white supremacists on one side, and the black-clad, helmeted guys with baseball bats on the other side (these were the very same guys Biden defended).
Prager U takes a blowtorch to the lie here:

And what could possibly explain why Left and Right — looking at the same data — could come away with such different stories?
Scott Adams has a workable theory. Because of the difference in our starting assumptions, we bring different perceptions into the same situation. He uses a ‘two movie’ theory, where we both see the same events, but wind up watching two VERY different movies.
In Movie One, President Trump is absolutely, definitely a racist, and any honest person can see it in the way he talks, the people who support him, and his policy proposals. For the viewers of this movie, Trump’s alleged racism is a fact, not an opinion. Therefore, logically, all Trump supporters must be racists because they support a racist president. This view of reality is promoted by CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, Washington Post, ABC, NBC, NPR, and essentially all of the left-leaning press.
In Movie Two, President Trump promised the country he would not be politically correct if elected, and sure enough, he is not. He goes hard at all critics, with uncautious language, and that makes it easy for his political foes to cherry pick the times he criticizes women and people of color, framing those instances as some sort of pattern. Viewers of Movie Two are confused about whether the viewers of Movie One are lying, stupid, brainwashed, or mentally ill.
Those two realities are starkly different. How can any of us tell which is the true one? After all, there are millions of otherwise intelligent and sane people watching both movies. Given the stakes, we sure wouldn’t want to be wrong. My suggestion, which works for any situation in which reality seems ambiguous, is to compare how well each version of reality predicts what happens next. The reality that predicts the best is the “true” one, assuming reality has any objective qualities at all.

As for the campaign being built on a lie? Even Biden’s own team knows it. And they SHOULD — they keep getting called out on it.
You always leave this out. From that very same event, moments later. But you know that.

In fact, we here at Clashdaily don’t mind reminding you we called them on it right when they launched their campaign:
