Yesterday, Joe Biden, who, charitably, is not at the peak of his mental powers right now (see Joe Biden Tells Supporters Poor Kids Are As Bright And Talented As White Kids and Joe Biden’s Hypocrisy About His Own Troubling History of White Supremacy Resurfaces) was on the hustings at the Iowa State Fair.
At some point, while accusing President Trump of riling up white supremacists, Joe Biden repeated a calumny that has become a staple his campaign. He claimed that President Trump, in the aftermath of Charlottesville, said the white supremacists marching were “fine people.” Joel Pollak, host of “Breitbart News Tonight” on Sirius XM radio, confronted Biden and accused him of misquoting Trump. Biden blew out his hairplugs

BTW, my lord, Biden looks ancient and decrepit.
And many of the sunflower left (a close friend of mine uses “sunflower” to describe people who barely have enough brainpower to move their heads in the direction of the sun) thought this was great.
Biden shuts up Breitbart lackey Joel Pollack….more pls https://t.co/PZdAaH9NZw

Joel Pollack from Breitbart tries to ambush Biden with a accusatory lie, and finds himself getting schooled by Biden. https://t.co/YDlZ6Ucu1x

The assclown whose sad duty it is to tell lies to cover Biden’s mental deficiencies, some guy named Bill Russo, responded to the allegation that Biden was lying with, you guessed it, a lie. He sent a doctored transcript.
"You also had people that were very fine people, on both sides."

Think about this. He sent a doctored transcript, in writing, to a news organization to prove his point.
The whole story of what Trump said has been covered over and over and over. And much like the Russian collusion hoax can’t be snuffed out by facts, neither can this lie. This is the actual transcript:
TRUMP: Excuse me, excuse me. (inaudible) themselves (inaudible) and you have some very bad people in that group. But you also had people that were very fine people, on both sides. You had people in that group — excuse me, excuse me — I saw the same pictures as you did. You had people in that group that were there to protest the taking down of, to them, a very, very important statue and the renaming of a park from Robert E. Lee to another name.
QUESTION: George Washington and Robert E. Lee are not the same (inaudible)…
TRUMP: George Washington was a slave owner. Was George Washington a slave owner? So, will George Washington now lose his status? Are we going to take down — excuse me — are we going to take down — are we going to take down statues to George Washington?
TRUMP: How about Thomas Jefferson? What do you think of Thomas Jefferson? You like him?
TRUMP: OK. Good. Are we going to take down the statue? Because he was a major slave owner. Now, are we going to take down his statue? So you know what? It’s fine. You’re changing history. You’re changing culture. And you had people, and I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists, because they should be condemned totally. But you had many people in that group other than neo-Nazis and white nationalists. OK? And the press has treated them absolutely unfairly. Now, in the other group also, you had some fine people, but you also had troublemakers and you see them come with the black outfits and with the helmets and with the baseball bats. You’ve got — you had a lot of bad — you had a lot of bad people in the other group…
The claim made by Joe Biden is a lie. It is understandable because Biden has always been a fabulist an now he’s not firing on all four cylinders. The guy is obviously well past his “use by” date. So the polite thing to do is to nod and keep a straight face as he spins his yarns.
His campaign manager is simply an egregious liar. He went to the trouble of either doctoring a transcript or having a staffer doctor one and then he thought he was so smart that no one else would bother to actually read it. That they’d just look at his claim on Twitter and say, “oh, you’re right.”
The fortunate thing for the country is that Biden and this clown will never get anywhere near the White House. The unfortunate thing is that Biden will not be around in the general election to get beaten like a rented mule.
