He’s trotting out the tired lie that 5 cops were killed by the events of January 6th… and now he’s trying to connect it to Putin.
One of the differences that is often highlighted between Joe Biden and Donald Trump was that of their respective communication styles.
Trump had spent a lifetime in high-stakes business and entertainment. He had spent decades endlessly promoting his next big venture. Then he translated that same energy to leverage success in the Entertainment industry. He became a shameless self-promoter, making liberal use of hyperbole, metaphor and outlandish statements. His style could make even the simplest statement of fact sound like it had been delivered by P. T. Barnum. He never merely succeeded in the cognitive test, for instance, he was a ‘stable genius’.
Joe Biden is the other end of that spectrum. He has a lifetime of effortless lying under his belt, most of which he seldom if ever gets called out on by friendly media sources. But because his endless stream of lies are told in more of an aw-shucks it’s only grand-dad telling another one of his crazy stories way, it doesn’t get the same attention. Not even when those lies are blandly sinister. You often see his ‘tell’ in the middle of those lies, when he recognizes they lack credibility and adds the phrase ‘no joke’, or in this clip the pause and reframing with the word ‘look…’. It’s his version of what Obama was up to when he said ‘let me be clear’ to announce he was in the process of obfuscating an issue.
Joe Biden has used very casual lies to sow actual destructive seeds.
He launched his Presidental campaign on an outright lie, claiming that Trump’s support of bigots was the reason he had no choice but to run against him. In his final weeks as VP, he suggested the Logan Act as a tool to destroy General Flynn AFTER an FBI investigation had already cleared him of any wrongdoing with the Russians.
He is maliciously sowing division and discord by claiming that voter id laws are somehow ‘discriminatory’ (even though most minority voters support voter id) and that Republicans are trying to prevent minorities from voting, (or worse!) from having their votes even counted. (Even though we now know Zuckerberg’s $400M support of Biden in battleground states violated established election bribery laws.) He’s doing this so that his party can unconstitutionally federalize election laws to the benefit of themselves and the detriment of Republicans.
Now he’s rewriting the history of what happened on Jan 6, 2021 to make it somehow connected to Vladimir Putin and an attempt on his part to divide America?
BIDEN: "How would you feel if you saw crowds storm and break down the doors of the British Parliament, kill five cops, injure 145, or the German Bundestag, or the Italian Parliament? I think you'd wonder. Well, that's what the rest of the world saw." pic.twitter.com/Ob3yBdFCId

…Vladimir Putin was counting on being able to split up the United States — how would you feel if you saw crowds storm and break down the doors of the British Parliament, kill five cops, injure 145, or the German Bundestag, or the Italian Parliament? I think you’d wonder. Well, that’s what the rest of the world saw. It’s not who we are. And now we’re proving under pressure that we are not that country. We’re united. And folks, that’s how I was able — we were able — to keep Europe united. And the free world united. A vote in the United Nations to condemn Putin 141 countries voted to do that. In the UN, General Assembly. Several abstained. China abstained. Didn’t vote with ’em but abstained. India abstained. Seven countries abstained, I think was the number. They’re alone. And they did what they did in my view — he did — because he thought he could split NATO, split Europe, and split the United States.
We’d like to remind Biden that the only established connections we have to Russian spies from Trump’s time in office involved paid agents of the Hillary Clinton campaign trying to destroy his presidency.
There is also the small matter of the corruption inquiry in Ukraine that Joe Biden himself used the leverage of American Aid to shut down in connection to Burisma, a company for which Hunter Biden sat on the board.
But even what he’s saying about January 6th flies in the face of known facts.
Which five cops died as a result of the events of that day, Joe? Officer Sicknick’s autopsy reported that he died of a stroke, and had no evidence of head injury, whether internal or external.
The other cops who died, who does he mean, and what was their cause of death? Go ahead and name one person who died at the hands of the crowd. He can’t. Because it didn’t happen.
But that won’t stop him using it to (ironically) spread misinformation and create division in America. Because before any other consideration, Joe Biden is a political partisan … nothing more and nothing less.
Fortunately, the country can see you for the incompetent ass you really are and has turned on you less than a year in.
