Joe Biden Says He Worked On 2016 Paris Accords With a Chinese Leader...Who Died in 1997

Oh, Joe Biden. Someone, please remind that man what year he’s in. 

And what year he got elected.

And what year the Obama administration passed laws.

Because it seems that yet again, Joe is forgetting what happened when, this time claiming that he worked on the Obama administration’s signature 2016 climate agreement with a world leader…who died in 1997.

“One of the things I’m proudest of is getting passed, getting moved, getting in control of the Paris Climate Accord,” Biden said during a campaign stop in South Carolina earlier this year, referencing the pricey 2016 international agreement later nixed by President Trump.

“I’m the guy who came back after meeting with Deng Xiaoping and making the case that I believe China will join if we put pressure on them. We got almost 200 nations to join,” he said.
 


Except that Xiaoping…well, he's dead. Has been for over 20 years, in fact.

Unfortunately for Biden, this will get tossed on the already massive pile of gaffes, blunders and memory lapses that have marred his campaign thus far. Earlier this year, Biden claimed he’d been arrested with South African leader Nelson Mandela back in the ‘70s (he hadn’t), claimed he’d been a professor at the University of Pennsylvania after leaving the office of vice president in 2017 (he wasn’t) and at one point, even seemed to forget former President Barack Obama’s name, despite having served with the man for eight years.
