Biden Claims A Family Member Was ‘Eaten By Cannibals’

While Democratic lawfare continues to keep Donald Trump sidelined in court, Joe Biden and his supporters are hopeful that being the only one campaigning will help the president regain footing in his reelection campaign.

The Hill writes that “the president is spending several days this week covering crucial ground in Pennsylvania, including a visit to his hometown, while Trump sits through what’s expected to be a monotonous jury selection process.

Trump’s court battles so far have boosted him by giving him free publicity and rallying his supporters around the idea that he is a martyr facing a corrupt system.

But Democrats are optimistic that, this time, sitting in court day after day could have a different outcome for the presumptive Republican nominee.

“Trump lost the popular vote twice and has a lot of ground to make up from his 2020 loss. It’s going to be hard to move any swing voters while there’s wall-to-wall coverage of Trump campaigning from a courtroom,” Jim Messina, former President Obama’s 2012 campaign manager, told the news outlet.

While liberals may be cheering that Trump can’t campaign, they may want to hold their breath when their candidate takes the stump. A “senior moment” from Biden could happen at any moment and the one that happened earlier in the week may take the cake. 

In a meandering speech, Biden attested to the belief that cannibals ate his uncle during World War II.

Unfortunately, he wasn’t joking. The New York Post reports that he really believes it. 

President Biden twice implied Wednesday that his uncle Ambrose Finnegan was eaten by cannibals in New Guinea after his plane crashed during World War II — even though military records show that the aircraft plunged into the Pacific.

 “He got shot down in an area where there were a lot of cannibals at the time,” Biden initially told reporters after visiting a war memorial that bears his uncle’s name in Scranton, Pa.

“They never recovered his body, but the government went back when I went down there and they checked and found some parts of the plane.”

“He got shot down in New Guinea and they never found the body because there used to be — there were a lot of cannibals, for real, in that part of New Guinea,” Biden told United Steelworkers union members.

The tall tale from Biden, who is constantly making up things about his past, was mocked all over social media. 

The Pentagon has stated that Biden’s uncle was on a courier flight “that suffered engine failure and ditched in the ocean off Papua New Guinea on May 14, 1944. His uncle was a passenger rather than the pilot. 

Marked ‘Secret’ the War Department report shows he was not flying the plane and was a passenger.

There were three ‘crew’ and one ‘passenger’ on board.

According to the report the weather was ‘good’ when the plane went down and there was ‘nil’ evidence to suggest whether or not those on board had survived,” The Daily Mail reported.

Later in the day, Biden has a less funny “senior moment,” making a confused statement about the ongoing war in Israel. The president claimed that he told the Israelis “don’t move on Haifa!” before trailing off and clearly losing his train of thought. Haifa is a large city in Israel.  

One political commentator explained why the gaffe is so damaging: 

Over the past two months or so, Biden has been trying to persuade the public that he’s not a feeble old man with cognitive issues, but it doesn’t appear to be working. 

A recent poll asking who you believe would perform better at specific tasks showed that Americans believe that Trump has more brain power left than Biden. 

In every task that involved physical ability or strategy, less than a third believe Biden is capable.
