FALSEHOOD #45: Biden falsely claimed that Delaware has more chickens than any other state.
Biden said, “We have more chickens than anybody in the nation in Delaware, but we don’t have turkeys.”
Biden made this false claim on November, 21, 2022, during a ceremony on the South Lawn of the White House.
EXPLANATION: This is false. According to data from Statista, Delaware isn’t even on the top 10 states with the highest chicken population.
