Former President Donald Trump could exaggerate the tiniest shred of a detail of a given story while he was president, and the fact-checkers in the mainstream media would lose their collective minds.
But when President Joe Biden tells ridiculously asinine lies about his past experiences, the same group of people hardly bat an eye.
As the Washington Examiner pointed out, Biden's stories are not only grossly exaggerated most of the time, but they're also disrespectful and wrong. And oftentimes, he'll tell stories to pander to a given audience, which has caused him a significant amount of political trouble.
The elderly, often-confused president has been on quite the tear with his stories as of late, including one of his most disrespectful false stories to date when he claimed he was at Ground Zero after the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the nation.

Biden has also pandered to various religious groups. If he's talking to Catholics, he'll quickly brag about attending Catholic Church on a regular basis. If he's talking to Black Americans regarding religion, he's the first to say he was "raised" in Black churches.
The president apparently also has deep ties (in his mind) to Judaism, telling a group of rabbis recently that he was "raised in the synagogues in my state."

"And thank you all — all the rabbis on this call for being such a source of strength and wisdom to communities across America,” Biden said during a conference call with rabbis.
He added, "I have long felt that strength and wisdom. I — you might say raised in the synagogues in my state. You think I’m kidding. I’m not."
It's not only religious groups to which he panders. Biden, depending on the crowd, seems to have a background in multiple ethnicities.
The Examiner noted:
In addition to his religious devotion, Biden later said he was “raised in the Puerto Rican community.” Then, later, Biden claimed that he was also raised in a community with a strong Eastern European presence. When elaborating, the president told an anecdote about the abundance of Polish immigrants in the area where he grew up that he wanted to a “-ski” to his last name to fit in.
Whatever it takes for a few extra votes, right?
Except it's not working. Biden is suffering in the polls, and the Democratic Party is finally coming around to admit that Biden is nowhere near strong enough to tackle a strong Republican opponent in the 2024 general election. But it probably won't stop him from lying to Americans at every turn.
It's important to share the news to spread the truth. Most people won't.
