Politifact Rates Claim that ‘Joe Biden Is a Pedophile’ as ‘Pants on Fire’

'If the media doesn’t want people mocking & making jokes about how creepy Joe is, then maybe he should stop the unwanted touching...'

Politifact decided to investigate whether Joe Biden is a pedophile and the so-called expert fact-checking website issued a “pants on fire” ruling—no pun intended.

Facebook then used Politifact’s conclusion to censor posts that showed Biden engaging in inappropriate physical contact with minors, denouncing the claims as false in spite of the visual evidence to the contrary.

Biden, the Democrat Party’s presumptive presidential nominee, has a long, visible history of touching women and children in ways that appear inappropriate and perhaps deeply disturbing.

But Politifact, a project of the liberal Poynter Institute, declared any such concerns illegitimate because the issue’s assigned fact-checker found no smoking gun to validate the claims.

“There is no credible evidence that supports this claim,” Politifact reported.

“In Joe Biden’s more than 40 years of public life, we could find no news reports, formal accusations, complaints, arrests or investigations that implicate him in any sort of sex crimes involving kids,” it said.

The fact-checker arbitrarily cited random social media posts and “QAnon” in her analysis, rather than give credence to photographic and video evidence of Biden’s behavior.

She further explained that Politifact partners with Facebook to remove “false news and misinformation” from the global social media platform.

In one instance, Politifact linked to a collage of incriminating photos but characterized the post as a conspiracy theory.

In another, the fact-checker accused Donald Trump Jr. of perpetuating the Biden conspiracy for posting a humorous Instagram image that said, “See you later, alligator” next to a picture of an alligator saying, “In a while, pedophile.”

A post shared by Donald Trump Jr. (@donaldjtrumpjr) on

The news media and the Biden campaign attacked Trump Jr. for the social media joke and accused him of attempting to deflect attention from President Donald Trump’s failures.

For his part, President Donald Trump has dubbed Biden with the nickname “Creepy Joe.”

Trump Jr. cleverly apologized while using the opportunity to show images of Biden’s “unwanted touching” at past White House events.

Politifact, however, conceded that Biden has been credibly accused by “some adult women of unwanted touching,” and that a former Senate staffer, Tara Reade, has accused him of sexual assault.

Biden and the University of Delaware are blocking any attempts to access Biden’s Senate records housed at his home state flagship university.

The records purportedly contain evidence of Reade’s sexual victimization—a fact that the esteemed fact-checking website failed to mention.
