(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) In a commencement speech to the 2022 graduating class of the University of Delaware, President Joe Biden made the claim that Jan. 6 protesters killed police officers, which is completely untrue.
“A mob of insurrectionists stormed the Capitol, the very citadel of democracy,” Biden said, according to the Gateway Pundit.
“Imagine what you’d be thinking today if you had heard this morning before you got here that a group of a thousand people broke down the doors of the parliament of Great Britain, killed two police officers, smashed and ransacked the office of members of the British Parliament or any other, what would you think?” Biden said. “What would you think?”
The entire speech was rife with overstatements and right out lies.
At one point, Biden also claimed that people broke down doors to get into the Capitol building, when there is video evidence of Capitol Police allowing people to walk freely into the building.
The Gateway Pundit also broke the story of the Capitol’s magnetic doors being opened from the inside. As people wandered around inside the Capitol building, the police did nothing.
Brian Sicknick, a Capitol Police Officer who was on the scene passed away hours after the protest had taken place.
This is the second time in less than a month that Biden has shamelessly used a commencement address to drop lies and distortions.
Biden told U.S. Navy grads earlier this month that he had been appointed to the Naval Academy in 1965, but did not go because he wanted to play football at the University of Delaware. The problem is that the story is likely a complete fabrication.
Biden earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Delaware in 1965, where he would return decades later to spew lies.
