Reporter Calls Biden Out Over History Of False Statements 

Daily Report September 14,2023

As Congress launched an impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden, one White House reporter called the president out over his history of false and misleading statements.

During a Wednesday White House press conference, Washington Times reporter Jeff Mordock asked White House National Security Council John Kirby about the president’s history of “lying” about events.

Mordock’s question comes after the president claimed to have been at Ground Zero the day after the 9/11 attacks.

“Ground Zero in New York — I remember standing there the next day and looking at the building. And I felt like I was looking through the gates of hell,” Biden told military service members in Anchorage, Alaska. “It looked so devastating because the way you could, from where you could stand.”

Reports, however, showed that Biden was in Washington giving a Senate speech on Sept. 12, 2001.

“The president has lied about being at Ground Zero the day after the September 11 attacks, falsely claimed he saw the Pittsburgh bridge collapse, claimed his grandfather died in the hospital days before his birth. What is going on with the president? Is he just believing things that didn’t happen did happen, or is he just randomly making stuff up?” Mordock asked.

Kirby, however, refused to answer the question. Instead, the retired Navy rear admiral and veteran military public affairs officer chose to respond with the president’s Monday visit to troops in Alaska.

“The president was deeply touched and honored to be able to spend 9/11 with military members there in Alaska and some families and was honored by their presence and the chance to make an important set of remarks about why we need to continue to remember that day. And he did that,” Kirby responded. “And he spoke about a visit to Ground Zero, which he did participate in about a week or so after the event, and what that looked and what that smelled and what that felt like. And it had a visceral impact on him as it did so many other Americans on that terrible day.”
