( –President Biden recently claimed he was the “first” in his family to attend college during a speech in Wisconsin, despite previous statements that contradict this assertion. This is part of a long-standing pattern where Biden has made several embellished or false claims about his personal and professional life.

Over the years, Biden has been caught making up stories, such as being arrested in apartheid-era South Africa, being in a helicopter brought down by al Qaeda in Afghanistan, and recounting anecdotes involving people who had passed away before the incidents could have occurred.

This habit was evident again when he discussed his student loan debt relief plan in Wisconsin, claiming, “I, like an awful lot of people in this audience, was the first in my family to go to college.” This statement conflicts with a previous one he made in Pennsylvania, where he mentioned a grandfather who played college football.

When asked about these discrepancies, White House Deputy Press Secretary Andrew Bates emphasized Biden’s commitment to restoring honesty and integrity in the Oval Office and reiterated Biden’s pride in being his family’s first college graduate.

Further confusion surrounds Biden’s claim of having taught “political theory” at the University of Pennsylvania. According to a fact check, while he held a nominal position there, he did not teach full courses as suggested.

Biden’s embellishments are not new. During his 1987 presidential campaign, he exaggerated his academic credentials and later had to correct the record. These exaggerations have often been highlighted by mainstream media, including The Washington Post, where fact-checker Glenn Kessler has criticized Biden for his recurring storytelling.

Moreover, Biden has been noted for making unlikely claims about personal interactions, such as his connection with Somali cab drivers in Wilmington, Delaware, and a dramatized account of a house fire that was, in reality, a minor incident.

These instances reflect a recurring theme in Biden’s rhetoric, where his narratives often enhance or distort the truth, leading to public and media scrutiny.
