Joe Biden is finally behind held accountable for some of his lies by the media, and this one is a doozy.
Biden has repeatedly claimed to have been arrested with Nelson Mandela, but the lie was so outrageous, a former ambassador was forced to come forward to deny it!
Now the mainstream media is calling him out for it.
Caught Lying Again Joe
Biden likes to embellish stories because he knows, or at least he thought he knew, nobody would ever call him out on it.
Up until now, he has been right.
However, former staffers of Joe’s are pushing back on a story Biden told about being arrested in South Africa during the 1970s when he met with Nelson Mandela.
As it turns out, it wasn’t an arrest at all, but rather a hold until the airport personnel were better able to accommodate his request.
The comment happened last week in South Carolina, but it is far from the only time Biden has told this story.
He stated, “This day, 30 years ago, Nelson Mandela walked out of prison and entered into discussions about apartheid.
“I had the great honor of meeting him. I had the great honor of being arrested with our U.N. ambassador on the streets of Soweto trying to get to see him on Robbens Island.”
The claim was first contested by Andrew Young, a former Ambassador that stated, “No, I was never arrested and I don’t think he was, either.”
Then, Joe Biden’s campaign tried to clear it up as well.
So, when Joe was specifically asked about it, here was his response…
Joe Biden acknowledged that he wasn’t arrested in South Africa during a visit to the country in the 1970s despite recently claiming that he had been.
“I wasn’t arrested, I was stopped. I was not able to move where I wanted to go,” he told @JohnBerman.https://t.co/zDFjiJ8oli pic.twitter.com/D5pPLLCpgx

So, to be clear, they made him wait while they cleared baggage claim and a restaurant so the entire party could continue to travel together.
Biden loves to embellish and has done so regularly on this campaign.
Hillary tried to pull the same nonsense back in 2016 during her election, and she was also proven to be a liar and untrustworthy.
So, keep telling those great little stories Joe, because you are doing more harm to your own campaign that we could ever do!
