Former Vice President Joe Biden found himself at the center of yet another controversy on Thursday, after it was discovered he had stitched together several stories to construct an emotional tale of pinning a medal on a serviceman in Afghanistan. If President Trump got as many details wrong about a story, the liberal media would declare that he was intentionally trying to “gaslight” the country. Instead, ABC and NBC helped him rationalize it, albeit in different ways.

According to Biden’s version of the serviceman’s deeds and the medal ceremony (click “expand”):

One of his buddies got shot, fell down a ravine about 60 feet. [Transition] This guy climbed down a ravine, carried his guy up on his back under fire and the general wanted me to pin the Silver Star on him.


It's the god's truth, my word as a Biden. He stood at attention, I went to pin him, he said, "Sir, I don't want the damn thing. Do not pin it on me, sir, please, sir. Do not do that. He died. He died."

But The Washington Post did some investigative work on a Democrat for a change and uncovered that, “In the space of three minutes, Biden got the time period, the location, the heroic act, the type of medal, the military branch and the rank of the recipient wrong, as well as his own role in the ceremony.
