President Joe Biden said on Thursday at CNN‘s scripted question-and-answer session that he does not have time to travel to the southern border, despite spending almost every weekend at home in Wilmington and calling “lids” on his working days at lunch time.
Biden said the First Lady, Jill Biden, went “and looked into those places.”
In defense of not visiting the disaster at the Southern borde since becoming president, he said, “I’ve been there before, I know it well.”
Fox News contributor Joe Concha said that “Biden has never been to the border in 50 years as a politician.”
By contrast, Biden has visited his home in Wilmington, Delaware 25 times.
His schedule is always light, too. He attends a few events per day, rarely talks to the press, and oftentimes ends his day around lunch time.
Even the Washington Post described his so-called visit to the Southern border as a “drive-by.”
“We have not found any record of him visiting the border as president, vice president, senator, or even as a concerned citizen,” Fox News host Peter Doocy told White House press secretary Jen Psaki in September.
Psaki said she would “look back in my history books and check the times he’s been to the southern border.” She never updated the American people.
In addition to lying about visiting the Southern border, Biden displayed strange behavior while talking with CNN.
While Anderson Cooper asked a question, he froze with his fists clenched perpendicular to his waist for about 20 seconds.

In numerous other hard-to-watch instances, Biden exhibited weird behavior or lost his train of thought, and Cooper had to push him back on track.
