Top 5 Joe Biden Lies

Here’s the top 5 most egregious lies told by Joe Biden. Throughout Joe Biden’s career he has told many falsehoods. Here are his best ones.

LIE #1: Joe Biden said he was arrested on his way to see Nelson Mandela.

Joe Biden said, “I had the great honor of being arrested with our U.N. ambassador on the streets of Soweto trying to get to see (Nelson Mandela) on Robbens Island.”

He was never arrested. The only thing that happened is that he was temporarily stopped while he was traveling. Biden has repeatedly changed his story through the years. Even leftwing fact-checkers, like Politifact and the New York Times, identified this as a lie. This inspired SNL to do a pretty funny skit about the whole incident.

LIE #2: Biden lied about his involvement in the Civil Rights movement.

“When I was 17, I participated in sit-ins to desegregate restaurants and movie houses. And my stomach turned upon hearing the voices of Faubus and Wallace. My soul raged on seeing Bull Connor and his dogs.” (Joe Biden 1983)

“When, I started as a kid, a young man in high school [was], uh, dealing with the issue. I got involved — I wasn’t any great shakes — but got involved in the civil rights movement. Desegregating restaurants, that kind of thing,” (Joe Biden, June 10th, 2020)

Joe Biden, on several separate occasions, has claimed that he was involved in the civil rights movement. He claimed that while he was in high school, he was working to desegregate restaurants. This was a lie.

Here’s an article going over 31 lies Joe Biden said about his work in the Civil Rights Movement. (Click Link)


LIE #3: THREE LIES IN ONE. Biden said he went to law school on a full academic scholarship. He also claimed that he graduated top of his class with three degrees.

“I went to law school on a full academic scholarship, the only one in my class to have a full academic scholarship…… And then decided I wanted to stay, went back to law school and, in fact, ended up in the top half of my class.” Biden further claimed he “graduated with three degrees from undergraduate school” during his time at the Syracuse University College of Law.

Biden only got a half scholarship. Biden did not graduate top of his class, he graduated from law school 76th in a class of 85 students. Biden also did not graduate with three degrees, he only graduated with one.

The Media Research Center put together a compilation video of the multiple plagiarism scandals Biden was involved in during 1987-1988. (Click the link to watch the video)

LIE #4: Biden claimed he was a professor.

Biden said, “rather than taking a Wall Street job, I became a teacher, I became a professor”

Joe Biden claimed he became an Ivy League professor after he was vice president, despite never teaching a class.

LIE #5: Biden claimed that his family was coal miners.

This lie was fact-checked by the left-wing Washington Post and Vice.

Biden first told this lie because it was part of a speech he plagiarized in 1988. The speech Biden stole was from Neil Kinnock, the leader of the British Labor Party. Neil Kinnock was the son of a Welsh coal miner.

Joe Biden routinely told this lie throughout his career. This lie might not seem like a big deal, but Biden told this lie to win the hearts of hard-working Americans.
