Joe Biden is a legend in his own mind.
Joe Biden on Friday traveled to Boulder County, Colorado to survey damage caused by wildfires last week.
100 mph winds whipped up wildfires and damaged more than 1,000 homes in Boulder County and the surrounding area.
Biden delivered remarks after surveying the Marshall fire damage and told a fake, made up story about how a lightning bolt almost destroyed his home.
“Jill and I have not gone through what you’ve gone through but we have had lighting strike our home and almost lose our home, and uh, we uh, only lost about 25% of it but we were able to rebuild,” Biden said to the wildfire victims.
This might be one of Joe Biden’s more insane lies.
Biden told a version of this lie in November during a stop in Woodstock, New Hampshire.
“And I know, having had a house burn down with my wife in it, she got out safely, God willing, but having a significant portion of it burn, I could tell 10 minutes makes a hell of a difference. It makes a big difference,” Biden said in November.
It turns out the house didn’t burn down.
In 2004 lightning struck Biden’s home, starting a small kitchen fire (who hasn’t had a small kitchen fire?) – Jill reported the small fire and it was under control in 20 minutes.
Biden today: We "had a house burn down with my wife in it. She got out safely."
2004 AP news report: "A small fire that was contained to the kitchen….Jill reported the fire…The fire was under control in 20 minutes.'' https://t.co/2VcAebg9r5
