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.
Biden just LIED about 9/11
Joe said he was at Ground Zero the day after the attack.
CSPAN shows Joe on the Senate floor on 9/12/2001 talking about spending the attacks in a bunker.
Why lie about 9/11 terror attacks?
What a filthy scumbag.

“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.”
Joe Biden is a complete piece of sh*t for LYING about being at 9/11 the day after the attacks took place.
I've had ENOUGH of his lies.
You can't spell POTUS without "POS".
Screw you, Joe Biden. Seriously. Screw you. pic.twitter.com/38PNivHGKv

Reports, however, showed that Biden was in Washington giving a Senate speech on Sept. 12, 2001.
Reporter: "The president lied about being at Ground Zero the day after the 9/11 attacks."
Kirby: "He spoke about a visit to Ground Zero which he did participate in a week or so after."
Reporter: "He has had a string of saying that things happened that are easily debunked. Why… pic.twitter.com/2NVObirMfn

“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.
Joe Biden today commemorated 9/11 from an airstrip in Alaska, instead of in NYC or at the Pentagon. And the White House says it’s time to move on. It's no wonder Joe began his 9/11 speech with a joke and more lies, this time about when he visited Ground Zero.

“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.”
