The New York Times ran an article entitled, “Biden Verbally Fumbles, Twice, During Campaign Trip in Florida,” on Tuesday. It was subtitled, “The president confused the American war in Iraq with the Russian war in Ukraine and then misstated how his son Beau died.”
NYT actually quoted one of Biden’s gaffes. It reported that Biden said, “Inflation is a worldwide problem right now because of a war in Iraq and the impact on oil and what Russia is doing.”
NYT then quoted Biden correcting himself and saying that he thought of Iraq because his son died in Iraq. The Times reported “Beau Biden, a military lawyer in the Delaware Army National Guard, served for a year in Iraq. He returned home in 2009 and died of brain cancer in the United States in 2015.”
The Times finished the article with a not-so-subtle look at the 2024 election. NYT pointed out, “while Mr. Biden has said he intends to run for a second term, his age ranked at the top of the list for Democratic voters who told pollsters that they want the party to find an alternative.”
Then, on Friday, NYT ran another story actually fact-checking Biden. This article bore the subtitle, “The president’s recent comments on Social Security, the deficit and economic growth claim credit where it is not always due.” NYT then lambasts Biden for three or four lies he has committed on the campaign trail.
Zerohedge reported that even CNN highlighted Biden’s lies on the “national debt and the deficit, the unemployment rate, his student debt cancellation scheme, gas prices, Chinese President Xi Jinping, and the Trump tax cuts.”
Massie continued, “Perhaps blaming him and his gaffs for the midterm results is the beginning of the left’s effort to replace him with a different nominee in 2024.”
