Joe Biden reached a new low.

Biden’s deplorable conduct is some of the worst seen by a sitting President.

And Joe Biden insulted a Gold Star mom with this unthinkable lie.

Iranian proxies murdered three U.S. soldiers and wounded 40 others in a drone attack on a military base in Jordan.

A statement from the Defense Department identified “the three soldiers killed are Sgt. William Jerome Rivers of Carrollton, Georgia; Spc. Kennedy Ladon Sanders of Waycross, Georgia; and Spc. Breonna Alexsondria Moffett of Savannah, Georgia. All three were assigned to the 718th Engineer Company, 926th Engineer Battalion, 926th Engineer Brigade, Fort Moore, Georgia.”

Joe Biden made the tragedy even worse by using the occasion to repeat his oft-told lie that his son Beau Biden died in Iraq while on military deployment.

This is a lie.

Beau Biden tragically died of brain cancer five years after he returned from Iraq.

The media loves to claim Joe Biden’s “political superpower” is empathy because of his lifetime of loss.

But what Biden really does is weaponize his loss for political gain through lies.

This wasn’t just a one-off.

When Biden met the families of the 13 U.S. troops killed in a suicide bombing at the Kabul Airport during the botched withdrawal from Afghanistan, he tried to blunt the anger at his incompetence by falsely claiming that he understood because his son also came home from overseas in a flag-draped coffin.

“His words to me were, ‘My wife, Jill, and I know how you feel. We lost our son as well and brought him home in a flag-draped coffin,’” Cherly Rex – who lost her son Marine Lance Cpl. Dylan Merola in the bombing –  told Congressman Darrell Issa of her encounter with Biden. “My heart started beating faster and I started shaking, knowing that their son died from cancer and they were able to be by his side.”

Biden’s wife and daughter died in a car accident in 1972 shortly after he won his first election to the U.S. Senate.

For years, Biden lied about the other driver by falsely claiming that he was drunk at the time of the accident as a means of building more political sympathy for himself.

Joe Biden doesn’t have empathy.

Biden sees loss as a way to build his political brand by attaching himself to other people’s grief.
