BIDEN RAISES EYEBROWS WITH CLAIM HE ‘USED TO DRIVE’ 18-WHEELER TRUCK

I used to drive a tractor-trailer,” Biden dijo. “I know a little bit about big trucks.

Biden’s claim was debunked earlier this year after the president said at a Mack Truck facility in Pennsylvania that heused to drive an 18-wheeler.

When asked at the time if the president had ever driven such a truck, a casa Blanca spokesperson pointed to a December 1973 artículo from the Wilmington Evening Journal that showed Biden rode in an 18-wheeler on a 536-mile haul to Ohio.

Fox News pressed the spokesperson at the time about the president’s claim – noting that riding in a truck is not the same as driving one – at which point the president’s spokesperson pointed to a United Federation of Teachers correo that touched on Biden once driving a school bus for a summer job.

The majority of school buses, de media, “have two axles, with the bigger models having two wheels on the front axle and four wheels on the dual axle, for a total of six wheels,” de acuerdo a SchoolBusFleet.com.

The truck story is just one of many tales Biden has embellished over the years. El mes pasado, he said his house burned down with his wife Jill Biden inside before he tried to correct himself to say asignificant portionof the home burned.

A 2004 report from The Associated Press, sin embargo, said it was a “pequeño” fire caused by a lightning strike that was contained to only the kitchen.
