Joe Biden repeated one lie that will have Donald Trump seeing red

Joe Biden capped off a hate filled and angry Democrat convention with a boring acceptance speech.

It was memorable for all the wrong reasons.

And that’s because Joe Biden repeated one lie that will have Donald Trump seeing red.

Biden framed his acceptable speech around the theme of good versus evil, claiming the President and the 63 million Americans who voted for him represented the forces of darkness.

The centerpiece of this argument – and the reason Biden claimed he decided to run for President – was in 2017, when Biden falsely claimed President Trump called neo Nazis at Charlottesville, Virginia “very fine people.”

“Remember seeing those neo-Nazis and white supremacists, coming out of fields spewing the same antisemitic bile heard across Europe in the ’30s. Remember the violent clash that ensued between those spreading hate and those with the courage to stand against it. And remember what the president said when asked? He said there were, quote, very fine people on both sides. That was a wake up call for us as a country and for me a call to action,” Biden stated.

This is a flat out lie.

President Trump never said any such thing.

The President explicitly condemned neo Nazis and white supremacists in remarks at Trump Tower in August 2017, and reserved his “very fine people” comment for regular Americans who showed up to protest the removal of a Robert E. Lee statue.

“I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists, because they should be condemned totally – but you had many people in that group other than neo-Nazis and white nationalists, okay? And the press has treated them absolutely unfairly. Now, in the other group also, you had some fine people, but you also had troublemakers and you see them come with the black outfits and with the helmets and with the baseball bats – you had a lot of bad people in the other group too,” President Trump told the press at the time.

This lie lives on because the Fake News Media is invested in the false notion that President Trump is a racist so they let Democrats like Joe Biden repeat this falsehood without holding them accountable.
