When it comes to telling lies, there’s no one better than President Biden. He’s told some whoppers — from battles with the gang member known as Corn Pop to make-believe friendships he had with an Amtrak train conductor.
But his latest fib is a doozy.
President Biden told an interviewer that he had an epiphany on gay marriage more than 60 years ago. Watch the full interview below.
“I can remember exactly where my epiphany was,” Biden told Kal Penn.
Hadn’t thought much about it to tell you the truth and I was a senior in high school and my dad was dropping me off, and I remember about to get out of the car and I look to my right and two well-dressed men in suits kissed each other. I mean like gave each other a kiss. And then one went, looked like he was heading into the Dupont building, one looked like he was headed to the Hercules corporation building. And I’ll never forget it, I turned and looked at my dad and he said ‘Joey, it’s simple. They love each other.’ It’s simple. No, I’m not joking. It’s simple, they love each other. And it’s never been, it’s never been, it’s just that simple, it doesn’t matter whether it’s same-sex or a heterosexual couple, you should be able to be married. So what is the problem?Joe Biden/Mediaite
And apparently that’s when he decided to affirm same-sex marriage.
But that’s simply not true. It’s revisionist history.
In 1973 Biden opposed gays in the military and said they were security risks in the government. In the 1990s, he voted for the Defense of Marriage Act. And in 2008 he opposed redefining marriage.
Mediaite reports Biden also supported a measure to defund schools that presented homosexuality as “a positive lifestyle alternative.”
Using the vernacular of the far-left, Biden’s voting record could be defined as anti-gay and homophobic. Definitely intolerant — for a Democrat.
So Biden is either confused about his past record or he’s intentionally lying about it. Either way — it’s not a good look.
