To quote the figurehead of our ruling oligarchy, “We choose truth over facts.” That could be why, with Biden’s handlers in power, WaPo no longer needs to fact check presidential statements, after 4 years of having politicized fact checkers denounce nearly every utterance from Trump.
The Daily Caller reports:
The Washington Post ended its false claims project for President Donald Trump on Wednesday and has no current “plans” to start a new database for President Joe Biden, the paper told the Daily Caller.
WaPo fact checkers discovered 30,573 “false or misleading claims” by Trump. Maybe they don’t want to do the same with Biden because the sheer volume of lies would bury them.
Biden is infamous for attempting to glorify himself with easily disprovable or outrageously unlikely lies. For example, lying about his performance in law school was one of the reasons his 1988 presidential bid collapsed amid gales of laughter.
The “final blow” for the campaign came when Newsweek unearthed C-SPAN footage of Biden rattling off his academic accomplishments, including saying that he graduated in the top half of his law school, when in fact, he ranked 76th out of 85.
More recently, Biden has lied repeatedly about being arrested in South Africa for attempting to visit Nelson Mandela.
Some of his tall tales are hilariously improbable, like his Corn Pop adventure:

Other Biden whoppers include:
1. Biden said his helicopter was “forced down” near Osama bin Laden’s lair in Afghanistan
2. Biden said he was a coal miner
3. Biden said he was “shot at” in Iraq
4. Biden said he called Slobodan Milošević a “damn war criminal” to his face
5. Biden said he participated in sit-ins at segregated restaurants and movie theaters
6. Biden said he criticized President George W. Bush during lengthy private meetings in the Oval Office

Occasionally Biden’s lies could be vaguely based on reality, as with his distorted and embellished story about giving a reluctant Navy captain a Silver Star in Afghanistan, which he vouched for with “my word as a Biden” and proclaimed to be “God’s truth.”
The Federalist published a list of lies Biden had told as president 2 days into his presidency. Keeping such a list current beyond a few weeks would require such massive data storage as to be infeasible, especially since Amazon Web Services would pull the plug on it.
