President Biden Tells Embellished Amtrak Tale For The Sixth Time In Less Than A Year

For what is now the sixth time in not even a year, President Joe Biden has stood at the podium and told the famous Amtrak story that he some graciously loves. Although most people in attendance already know, it appears that President Biden’s age is getting to him as the details of his lovely tale are completely false. But although Biden has a team of handlers at his side, none of them have thought to inform the President on the truth about his past. 

Speaking in Kansas City, Missouri, President Biden said, “I remember one day as vice president, the government keeps fastidious records of how many miles you travel on government planes. And so there’s a big headline, ‘Biden travels,’ I forget what it was, ‘a million miles on Air Force Two’ and so on and so forth.” He continued, “And I was getting on the train to go home. I was going home to see my mom who was sick. And one of the conductors I’ve known for years walked up and grins, he said, ‘Joey baby,’ grabbed my cheek. Not a joke. And I thought that he was going to get shot. True story.”

Luckily, no action was taken as Biden added, “I said, ‘No, no, it’s OK. We’ve known each other.’ He says, ‘Joey. Big deal. A million miles’ — or whatever it was — ‘a million miles on Air Force Two. Come on, Joey, do you know how many miles you traveled on Amtrak?’ I said no.” He would then reveal, “36 years, 119 days a year back and forth, then as vice presidents we figure you’ve done X number of trips and that adds up to 1,200,000 miles on Amtrak.’”

Making him Amtrak Joe, the President holds this story near and dear to his heart as again, he has mentioned it six times over the past year. But here is the problem, the conductor, Negri, retired from Amtrak in 1993. Looking at Biden’s history, he wasn’t vice president at the time. And what makes the details presented by Biden even more impossible is the fact that Negri would die in May of 2014.  

Still, with the crowd laughing and playing along, the oldest-ever President casually moved on to his constant promotion of the America of tomorrow through the signing of the $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill, which would drastically help Amtrak.

This lying,egotistical,disgraceful,embarrassment,illigitimate, president needs to quit lying to the American people, he wouldn’t know the truth if it smacked in the face. It seems he has been doing it his entire career, and no one even questions his lying, when he is caught red handed,like every day.What an embarrassment, our country needs to put up with, this totally incompetent,failure is a total disgrace to America, and all our allies we once had.

Maybe he is using the Democrat playbook. Tell a lie over and over, people might believe it.

Phantasy – La-La Land, or more likely – Senile Dementia. As far as “Mr President Biden” is concerned it is all the same thing and all at the same time. I only hope Vladimir chooses to go gently on him – just as the CCP has done so far. Slo-Joe needs all the support he can get from any quarter right now – this is one sad old demented man who would normally have been put out to pasture a long time ago – but with the miraculous intervention of the Democrat Partys’ Dominion Vote Discounting machines this Old Hoss has been thrust into the White House far far away from his very own secluded cellars at “Home”. What a shame ! How very frightening ! Who holds the “Nuclear Button” right now ????

81,000,000 voters were supposedly bamboozled by this doddering, mostly senile, old sot. Maybe he can tell the big lie he tells about the drunken truck driver who supposedly ran into his first wife only the facts are totally false as told by Joe. The truck driver was not drunk, the State Police did not even suspect it and his wife ran into the truck by blowing past a stop sign. But hey, when your are at a MADD convention and looking for votes and sympathy who the hell cares if you screw up the truck driver’s life just so you tell a good story with YOU as the victim. A life long failure who lies and is corrupt as all get out. I continue to wonder whose hand is up the skirt of Joe the Sock Puppet.
