Wednesday News Roundup: The Democrat Activists at the WaPo Give Biden Four Pinnochios

If China Joe Biden were a Republican, this would be the only video clip of him that our corrupt news media would ever air – and they would air it as their lead story every night of the week:

Biden is such a habitual and reprehensible liar, however, that even the corrupt Democrat toadies who run the Washington Post felt they needed to call him out for it yesterday.

Here’s an excerpt from the story at Breitbart News:

President Joe Biden advanced a false narrative about Georgia’s new election integrity law, claiming that it reduces voting hours, thereby compromising the ability of working-class Americans to go out and vote. This is a clear falsehood, as the law does not change Election Day hours and actually expands access for early voting, as the establishment media outlet, the Washington Post, pointed out in a fact-check, giving the commander-in-chief Four Pinocchios.

Biden has spoken sharply against Georgia’s election law, which Gov. Brian Kemp (R) signed last week, repeating many of the talking points touted by far-left members of Congress, even referring to state election integrity efforts as “un-American” and “sick,” making “Jim Crow look like Jim Eagle.”

“What I’m worried about is how un-American this whole initiative is. It’s sick. It’s sick … deciding that you’re going to end voting at five o’clock when working people are just getting off work,” he said during last week’s news conference. The following day, Biden claimed the law ended voting hours early “so working people can’t cast their vote after their shift is over.”

However, Biden’s assertions are not accurate. Election Day hours in Georgia, which are 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., have not changed. Those in line by 7 p.m. are permitted to cast their vote.

“Nothing in the new law changes those rules,” the Washington Post reported.

Georgia’s law did, however, make changes to early voting, but the Post explained that experts said the “net effect was to expand the opportunities to vote for most Georgians, not limit them”:

“One of the biggest changes in the bill would expand early voting access for most counties, adding an additional mandatory Saturday and formally codifying Sunday voting hours as optional,” Stephen Fowler of Georgia Public Broadcasting said in an excellent and comprehensive report on the impact of the new law. “Counties can have early voting open as long as 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., or 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at minimum. If you live in a larger metropolitan county, you might not notice a change. For most other counties, you will have an extra weekend day, and your weekday early voting hours will likely be longer.”

Charles Stewart III, an election expert at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, said: “I had also heard this generally reported as expanding early voting, so I’m surprised by the characterization.” He studied the precise language changes at our request and said it indicated an expansion of hours, especially in rural counties.

The law used to say early “voting shall be conducted during normal business hours.” Experts said that generally means 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The new law makes it specific — “beginning at 9:00 AM and ending at 5:00 PM.” A Georgia election official said the change was made in part because some rural county election offices only worked part time during the week, not a full eight-hour day, so the shift to more specific times makes it clear they must be open every weekday for at least eight hours.

Ultimately, the Post issued Four Pinocchios to Biden’s claim, emphasizing Election Day hours were not changed and the early voting changes actually expand access, as Heritage Action pointed out amid the left’s steam of false characterizations last week:

So basically, the Sock Puppet-in-Chief accused Georgia Republicans of being racists based on nothing but lies that his handlers fed to him like they feed him his morning tapioca pudding. And the lies were so egregious that even the WaPo felt it could not just ignore them like it normally does for Democrat liars.

That’s some serious lying right there, folks. But hey, it’s Joe Biden, and that’s just how he rolls. In fact, it’s how he has always rolled.

Think about it: Even if you’re a Democrat voter, what has this man told you the truth about? That $15 minimum wage he was going to immediately implement, presumably using fairy dust? A lie.

Those $2,000 checks to everyone he was going to cut on his first day in office? An abject lie.

That $3 trillion “COVID Relief” bill? A massive lie that was 91% pork.

His taking credit for the vaccines that Donald Trump created via his own sheer will? Despicable lies.

His refusal to admit that he has intentionally created the crisis at the border with Mexico? All lies, provably so.

This is the very essence of Joe Biden, your national Sock Puppet-in-Chief. It is not just what he does, it is in fact who he is.

Thanks, Democrats.

 

That is all.
