Joe Biden’s lies are legendary (13 Jul 2020)
This video was posted to YouTube on Donald Trump’s channel. It provides a summary of problematic statements made by Biden which apparently were lifted from others and delivered as his own. The video addresses some unethical plagiarism by Biden while in school, as well as misrepresentations about his academic credentials. In 2016, a speech writer for Melania Trump used some portions of a speech by Michelle Obama. The news story was intended to be a jab at the Trump campaign and it wouldn’t be surprising if this video about Biden’s plagiarism is intended as a response.

Note: To better understand this clip it is important to know that Joe Biden referred to the AR-14 that he would be confiscating. The correct name for the rifle is AR-15. So, that blunder lost him some points with assault rifle enthusiasts.
