Remember when Biden told the strange tale of how he confronted Corn Pop, the straight-razor-wielding “evil dude”?
That one gave the media a field day.
Since Biden was just a frail old white man running for President at the time.
As the Democrats see him now, he is not the king and leader of the party.
In this clip about the Corn Pop plot, Colbert destroys Biden. It’s hard to believe it’s already 2019.

Joe told another of his bizarre stories at an event commemorating Amtrak’s 50th anniversary the other day. However, only a few news outlets considered fact-checking it.
Here’s the backstory on Biden’s tale. For this one, you might want to pop some corn:

Was the story really real, despite the cringy theatrics?
According to Fox News, it had a number of serious flaws:
Last week, President Biden shared a touching tale about an Amtrak conductor congratulating him on traveling more than 1.5 million miles. But the story’s facts don’t add up.
Biden made the remarks at an event commemorating Amtrak’s 50th anniversary on Friday,
“When I became vice president, one of the Capitol Hill newspapers estimated that I had taken more than 7,000 round trips on Amtrak over my career. I think that’s an exaggeration. I’m going to rely on those two conductors … one of them was a guy named Angelo Negri.”
Watch it here: CNBC/Youtube
“There was an article, I guess my fourth or fifth year as vice president, saying Biden travels 1,300,000 miles on Air Force One [Two]. I used to – the Secret Service didn’t like it – but I used to like to take the train home. My mom was sick and I used to try to come home almost every weekend as vice president to see her. I got on the train and Angelo Negri came up and he goes, ‘Joey, baby,’ and he grabbed my cheek like he always did. I thought he was going to get shot. I’m serious. I said, ‘No, no, he’s a friend.”
“He said, ‘Joey, what’s the big deal? 1,300,000 miles on Air Force Two? Do you know how many miles you traveled on Amtrak?’ I said, ‘No, Angie, I don’t know.’ He gave me the calculation and he said you traveled 1,500,000 miles on Amtrak. The fact is, I’d probably take Angie’s word before I’d take the word of what the article said.”
So far, Biden’s remarks have gone unnoticed by the media. A few aspects of the novel, however, seemed out of place. Biden was in his fourth year as vice president around 2013, and according to Negri’s obituary, he left Amtrak in 1993, when Biden was still a senator. Biden’s mother, Catherine Eugenia Finnegan, passed away in 2010.
Let’s get one thing straight. If this is right, Joe was on his way to see his dying mother, who had been dead for three years. And the conductor with whom he was speaking had been retired for 20 years!
It’s no surprise that the Democrats want to make Math discriminatory. They’re terrible at it!
So either Joe can time travel, or he’s having discussions with the afterlife, or this is just a pants-on-fire moment, as I see it.
Here’s what people are saying on Twitter:
Looks like “Cornpop Slayer” has been making his own history for 50 years…why not lie when lies are all you have?

Joe Biden has been plagiarizing and lying his entire life. You know who plagiarizes and who lies(???)….people who DO NOT LIKE THEMSELVES…That’s who.
Joe Biden – there ain’t much to like really.
Biden’s bizarre Amtrak story doesn’t add uphttps://t.co/rvWxMFj0qn

There is no way he was confused by 20 years. What purpose does it serve to tell such a story? Lies beget lies https://t.co/96Zbba5075

It’s not the first time Biden’s colorful anecdotes have sparked debate about their veracity.
Last year, while campaigning in South Africa, Biden shared a story about being detained while attempting to visit Nelson Mandela in prison.
But why isn’t there a media frenzy over this?
Sorry for the blunder.
They simply don’t give a damn. Joe is the caller. He’s incapable of making a mistake.
According to Fox News, it appears that they have no intention of even pretending to do their job:
Glenn Kessler, a fact-checker for the Washington Post, drew fire on Monday after claiming he didn’t intend to keep a “library” of President Biden’s lies after his first 100 days in office.
“I have learned my lesson,” Kessler tweeted. “‘Learned my lesson’ means who knows what the next four years will bring.”
During former President Donald Trump’s entire term in office, The Washington Post famously held a database of his lies. It was a “crazy trip,” according to Kessler.
As a result, Joe gets away with it, once more.
But that’s fine. People are not illiterate.
Even if the media refuses to report it, we know how to recognize a lying, dog-faced pony soldier when we see one.
