Lyin’ Joe is at it again. After claiming in an October 2019 campaign speech in South Carolina that he began his higher education at a HBCU (Historically Black Colleges and Universities), the truth has caught up with him.
The Washington Times is noting;
Carlos Holmes, director of news service for Delaware State, said that Mr. Biden was never a student, although he has made appearances twice on campus for commencement speeches at the public university in Dover, one of the nation’s historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs).
“Vice President Biden did not attend DSU,” said Mr. Holmes in a Thursday email. “However he was the Commencement keynote speaker in 2003 and , and during the former he was awarded an honorary doctoral degree.”
Mr. Biden made the claim ahead of the South Carolina Democratic primary during a town hall held Oct. 26, 2019, at historic Wilson High School in Florence, which was founded in 1866 by the Freedmen’s Bureau for Black children seeking an education.
“I got started out of an HBCU, Delaware State — now, I don’t want to hear anything negative about Delaware State,” Mr. Biden told the audience, drawing laughter, as shown on video. “They’re my folks.”
Not the first time Biden has been caught flat-out lying to the people. In a video compiled by Brad Parscale, some of Biden’s whoppers;
- “I went to law school on a full academic scholarship…[and] ended up in the top half of my class.” (In reality, Biden had only a partial scholarship, and he graduated 76th of 85 students in his law school class.)
“[I] graduated with three degrees from undergraduate school. (He didn’t.)
- “[I was the] outstanding student in the political science department.” (Biden did not win top honors in his undergraduate discipline.)
More recently, Biden has also claimed;
- The Obama administration “didn’t lock people up in cages.” (Actually, the photos were taken in 2014.)
- “Immediately, the moment [the Iraq War] started, I came out against it.” (Biden voted in favor of the war.)
