Biden Repeats False Claim That Son Beau Died in Iraq
(ConservativeSense.com) – President Joe Biden has a long and storied history as a gaffe machine stretching back to his time as a member of Congress. But recently, it’s not just outbursts or forgotten details tripping the POTUS up. Instead, it seems to be purposeful revisions of history. One glaring example is his repetition twice in the last month of the false claim that his son, Beau Biden, died in Iraq.
Twice within a month, the president has referred to his son’s death in Iraq. The first time was on October 12 at Camp Hale near Vail, Colorado, during its establishment as a new national monument.

The second time was on November 1 at Hallandale Beach, Florida, during a speech about protecting Social Security and Medicare benefits and lower prescription drug costs.
Joe Biden keeps saying his son died in Iraq. His son died six years after he returned from Iraq. This is not a small lie. And he keeps repeating it: pic.twitter.com/Kpx3xUrsMV

The truth of the matter remains: President Biden’s oldest son, Joseph Robinette Biden III, better known as Beau, died at the age of 46 at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, on May 30, 2015, of aggressive brain cancer. He returned from a nearly year-long deployment in Iraq more than five-and-a-half years before his death and served as the Delaware Attorney General from 2007 until five months before dying. The president, his father, believes his exposure to burn pits in Iraq might have caused Beau’s cancer, but admits he has no proof.
Apologists might argue that grief rewires memories over time. Still, revising history has become a pattern with Joe Biden, like his recent claim that gasoline was more than $5 per gallon when he took office, or when he said he sort of grew up with Puerto Ricans, politically, or his imaginary civil rights arrest record.
When does a gaffe become… something else?
