Reads along the lines of 'Tsk, Tsk Joe, what he meant to say was...
Did the same fact check routine on Hill back in '16. They did however rate several of her claims as true, but not all. His, not so much.
Won't hurt him unless he begins to loose focus repeatedly. Now if he stops mid sentence to sniff some girls hair......

May 20, 2020
President Donald Trump erroneously tweeted that Michigan's Democratic secretary of state was "illegally" sending "absentee ballots to 7.7 million people" for this year's primary and general elections.

Biden is right about the post office.
Trump is terrified mail ballots will undermine GOP voter suppression of Democrats.

Fascists don't like free votes.

Because it criticizes Biden, you'll read a Fact-Checker.

But if its about Trump, you'll ignore it.

No one is surprised.

Biden could start telling a dozen lies a day and never come close to Trump's record by election day.

Unfortunately it's hard to fit 17,000 lies into a single article.

How many articles has Fox written fact checking the Dotard? After writing that, I realized Fox would probably agree with all the lies, report them as fact, and claim he is the most truthful president - ever - in the history of presidents..

Wow. Some real whoppers, there.

Thread gets the funny/lame flag.

I took Biden's remark to be in reference to Trump's ongoing war with Amazon and, by proxy, the Washington Post.

Mostly, The Washington Post, his most hated adversary.
