Joe Biden on Monday promoted his “Build Back Better” agenda at the NJ Transit Meadowlands Maintenance Complex in Newark, New Jersey.
Biden once again told the debunked story about the Amtrak worker Angelo Negri who used to grab his cheek and shout, “Joey Babbbyyyyy!”
This is one of Biden’s favorite lies.
Biden claims he used to take the train to see his dying mother during his “fourth or fifth year as Vice President” when the Amtrak conductor pointed out that Biden had traveled 1.3 million miles on AF2 and 1.5 million miles on that train.
Joe Biden’s mom died in 2010 and the Amtrak conductor, Angelo retired in 1993 – 22 years before Joe Biden hit 1 million miles on AF2.
This is the fifth time Joe Biden has told this thoroughly debunked story.
Biden also falsely claimed his $5.5 trillion spending spree “doesn’t increase the deficit one cent.”
Joe Biden once again tells the false story of Amtrak worker Angelo Negri who he says congratulated him while he was VP on traveled "2,200,000 miles" on the train.
