During the commencement speech at the University of Delaware, President Biden spoke about the January 6th protests stating:
“A mob of insurrectionists stormed the Capitol, the very citadel of democracy. Imagine what you’d be thinking today if you had heard this morning before you got here that a group of a thousand people broke down the doors of the parliament of Great Britain, killed two police officers, smashed and ransacked the office of members of the British Parliament or any other, what would you think? What would you think?”President Joe Biden
Biden continues to make the false claim about Trump supporters killing police officers. This is a falsehood and can be fact checked without problem. U.S. Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick died a day after the attack, but his death was determined to be from natural causes: two strokes at the base of his brain stem caused by a clot in an artery. Additionally, four police officers, serving either the Capitol Police or the Washington Metropolitan Police force, died by suicide in the weeks following the January 6th riots.
It is very unfortunate that Joe cannot keep his facts straight – teleprompter or not, he just doesn’t have the capacity to keep his focus on telling the truth and not making things up as he goes along. The truth is what he makes it to be apparently.
“He who permits himself to tell a lie once, finds it much easier to do it a second and third time, till at length it becomes habitual; he tells lies without attending to it, and truths without the world's believing him. This falsehood of the tongue leads to that of the heart, and in time depraves all its good dispositions.”Thomas Jefferson
