In 2018, an active shooter entered the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh. 11 people were killed and 6 more were wounded in the attack. This is something that should be taken with the utmost seriousness. Within three days of the shooting, President Trump visited the synagogue. He and the First Lady were sure to pay their proper respects to the victims.
From there, Trump went to the hospital, where several police officers were recovering from their wounds. Pittsburgh’s mayor and the Governor of Pennsylvania were not willing to meet with Trump. People even protested the visit. That’s what this man gets for trying to be a stand-up guy.
If he hadn’t visited at all, that would have been a problem, too. There was simply no winning for Trump during his presidency. He was public enemy number one and to be fair, he spent a lot of time relishing that role. That does not mean that he was a heartless monster. He just had a certain way of doing things, rubbing some the wrong way.
So what does any of this have to do with Biden? Biden is the one who has decided to tell yet another lie that goes against everything Trump stood for. Give Sleepy Joe another week and he will be claiming that he was there when the Great Chicago Fire was set. Biden does not want to be left in the dust, that much we know.
He’s so desperate to be included that he is now claiming that he’s been to the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, too. It’s hilarious when he makes these claims because they are so easy to disprove. It makes you wonder if he is running any of them by the rest of his staff first. They would probably love to save him from these gaffes, if he would allow them to do so.
“I remember spending time at the, you know, going to the, you know, Tree of Life synagogue, speaking with them,” he said. You know that the mainstream media is starting to lose patience because they are starting to transcribe his quotes with all of the um’s and ah’s still adding. At first, we thought he might have been telling the truth. Alas, the director of this synagogue remembers things differently:
“Barb Feige, executive director of the Tree of Life, said that Biden did not visit the synagogue in the nearly three years since the anti-Semitic attack.
In a phone interview, Feige, executive director since July 2019, said firmly that “no” Biden didn’t visit, even before taking office when he had a lower public profile as a former vice president and then-Democratic presidential candidate.” His campaign did issue a statement on the attack, though:
“Two years ago, a white supremacist entered Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life Synagogue and perpetrated the deadliest anti-Semitic attack in American history. Eleven innocent lives were taken that Shabbat morning, ripped away from their families by a lone gunman taking longtime forces of bigotry and prejudice to their violent conclusion. This act of terror was not only an assault against the Jewish community of Pittsburgh — it was a strike against the soul of our nation and the values for which America stands…
On behalf of Jill, Kamala, Doug, and our families, we stand with the people of Squirrel Hill, the entire Pittsburgh community, and all Jewish Americans on this solemn anniversary. May the memories of the victims forever be a blessing.”
At least Biden commented on the shooting but why did he have to lie like this? His dementia is really getting to him at this point. The White House was asked to provide further comment and they were not willing to reply. They must know that Joe lied, too. If you would like to watch him stutter and stammer away, there’s also a video that provides further context into his words. It’s quite the watch.
