Former Vice-President Joe Biden has finally made it official. He announced that he is running for the highest office in the land joining 20 other Democratic candidates hoping to win the nomination. And he is already playing dirty. The 76-year-old kicked off his campaign by spreading a huge racist lie about President Donald Trump, and immediately it backfired, big time. You’ll love this.
Joe Biden has been running for president since 1987. That’s right, the former vice-president has run unsuccessfully for the Democratic nomination every four years since the late 1980s. This is his last chance, and he decided to play dirty coming right out of the starting gate.
In a three-and-a-half minute YouTube video, Biden cited the August 2017 riots as his primary motivation for running against Trump, presenting a version of events that even a CNN contributor has declared to be fraudulent.
It’s really important for Trump supporters to understand the truth behind this Charlottesville hoax. It is what the leftists always point to when supporting their claim Trump is one big racist.
After referring to the town’s historic role, including Thomas Jefferson, a slave owner, he added, “Charlottesville is also home to a defining moment for this nation in the last few years,” followed by footage of a neo-Nazi procession. But that’s not all.
Biden noted that the neo-Nazis in Charlottesville were “chanting the same antisemitic bile heard in the ’30s.” He then added that they were “met by a courageous group of Americans, and a violent clash ensued.”
It should be noted here among those “courageous group of Americans” were left-wing Antifa extremists who specifically came to Charlottesville to cause violence, and whom even Nancy Pelosi later condemned after they caused another riot.
Biden then cited the debunked “very fine people” claim:
And that’s when we heard the words of the President of the United States that stunned the world and shocked the conscience of this nation. He said there were, quote, some “very fine people on both sides.” Very fine people on both sides? With those words, the President of the United States assigned a moral equivalence between those spreading hate, and those with the courage to stand against it. And in that moment, I knew that the threat to this nation was unlike any I had every seen in my lifetime.
“What Biden said is completely untrue, as the transcript of Trump’s press conference about Charlottesville shows,” Breitbart reports. “Trump was referring to protesters against the removal of a statue of Confederate general Robert E. Lee, as well as to non-violent left-wing protesters against racism, and specifically excluded the neo-Nazis from ‘very fine people.”‘
The mainstream media selectively edited Trump’s impromptu press conference so they could sell this notion that the president had called neo-Nazis “very fine people.” Here’s the official transcript of the portion Biden lied about— as Trump addresses the Charlottesville protest:
REPORTER: The neo-Nazis started this thing. They showed up in Charlottesville.
TRUMP: Excuse me, they didn’t put themselves down as neo-Nazis, and you had some very bad people in that group. But you also had people that were very fine people on both sides. You had people in that group – excuse me, excuse me. I saw the same pictures as you did. You had people in that group that were there to protest the taking down, of to them, a very, very important statue and the renaming of a park from Robert E. Lee to another name.
Minutes later in the same interview Trump makes it crystal clear, saying: “It’s fine, you’re changing history, you’re changing culture, and you had people – and I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists, because they should be condemned totally – but you had many people in that group other than neo-Nazis and white nationalists, okay? And the press has treated them absolutely unfairly. Now, in the other group also, you had some fine people, but you also had troublemakers and you see them come with the black outfits and with the helmets and with the baseball bats – you had a lot of bad people in the other group too.”
So how in the hell can Biden launch his campaign on a total lie? It’s disgraceful. And Americans are weighing in telling Creepy Uncle Joe this isn’t going to fly. “Joe comes out the gate pushing a known lie that further divides our country. He then pretends to stand strongly against something that never happened… FRAUD,” tweeted “JJ Truth.”

“Those who cannot understand what Trump said [about Charlottesville] are either stupid or deliberately trying to deceive. With Biden I would lean towards stupid, but deceiving also possible,” tweeted “Stop Thr Half Staff Madness.”

Joe Biden knows he can’t win the Democratic nomination by playing fair. The former Veep has sold his soul to the radical leftists by propagating this horrendous lie about President Trump. He knowingly chose to make an entire video based on untruths, and then he expects Americans to trust him?
Make sure all your family and friends get this information so they can spread the truth about this heinous lie Joe Biden is trying to sell to become president. When the majority of Americans learn Biden is hoping to stoke racial tension based on a lie, that’s how we help President Trump get re-elected.
