I don't believe it: WaPo actually fact-checked this outright lie by Joe Biden (with actual facts!)

Mar 31st

They say a broken clock is right at least twice a day:

In the article, WaPo gives Biden its highest rating of "Four Pinnochios," equivalent to "liar liar pants on fire."

Here's what Biden claimed about a new voting law in Georgia:

  • "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."
  • "Among the outrageous parts of this new state law, it ends voting hours early so working people can't cast their vote after their shift is over."

And here's what WaPo said:

"Many listeners might assume [Biden] was talking about voting on Election Day, not early voting. But Election Day hours were not changed. As for early voting, the law made a modest change, replacing a vague 'normal business hours' — presumed to be 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. — to a more specific 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. time period. But that's the minimum. Under the new law, counties have the option to extend the voting hours so voters can start casting ballots as early as 7 a.m. and as late as 7 p.m. — the same as Election Day in Georgia. Moreover, an additional mandatory day of early voting on Saturday was added and two days of early voting on Sunday were codified as an option for counties."

Look at that! Actual facts! From WaPo!

But it gets better:

"One could understand a flub in a news conference. But then this same claim popped up in an official presidential statement. Not a single expert we consulted who has studied the law understood why Biden made this claim, as this was the section of law that expanded early voting for many Georgians.

Somehow Biden managed to turn that expansion into a restriction aimed at working people, calling it 'among the outrageous parts' of the law. There's no evidence that is the case. The president earns Four Pinocchios."

This might be one of the only times a leftist politician has been issued such a scathing abuse by our unelected-but-all-powerful fact-checkers.

To be fair, this was a blatant lie of epic proportions. There's no way WaPo could print anything but facts without publishing prejudiced misinformation.

It's also not something that affects most of the nation – you know, like the rest of Biden's woke policies that want to strangle the Constitution and take it out behind the shed for good measure.

But credit where credit is due. Good job, WaPo! Doesn't this foray into real news feel good??
