Joe Biden seems to dole out a new lie every week about his personal past, and he’s done it again with the lie that he awarded his uncle with the purple heart for his service in WWII.

Speaking to veterans in Delaware on Friday, Biden, who was elected as Obama’s vice president in 2008, went off script again with yet another fake story about his life, according to the New York Post.

“My dad, when I got elected vice president, he said, ‘Joey, Uncle Frank fought in the Battle of the Bulge.’ He was not feeling very well now — not because of the Battle of the Bulge, but he said, ‘and he won the Purple Heart and he never received it. He never got it. Do you think you could help him get it? We will surprise him,'” Biden said.

“So I got him the Purple Heart. He had won it in the Battle of the Bulge. And I remember he came over the house and I came out and [my father] said, ‘Present it to him, okay?’ We had the family there,” Biden continued.

“I said, ‘Uncle Frank, you’ve won this and I wanted to —’ and he said, ‘I don’t want the damn thing.’ No, I’m serious, he said, ‘I don’t want it.’ I said, ‘What’s the matter, Uncle Frank? You earned it.’ He said, ‘Yeah, but the others died. The others died. I lived. I don’t want it,'” Biden said.

But there is just one tiny problem. Biden’s dad died more than six years before Joe was elected vice-president. Well… two tiny problems. Joe’s uncle Frank died in 1999.

Meanwhile, aside from the Post, the media is ignoring it.

The paper looked into some records. Frank’s obituary did not mention that he earned a Purple Heart. A registry of known Purple Heart awardees did not mention Frank. And an archive of Biden’s past comments does show he ever delivered this particular lie. So, the whole thing is a brand new lie.

But, Biden has issued lies that parallel this uncle Frank tall tale. In 2019 he delivered a tale about a supposed Navy captain who refused to accept his Silver Star for heroism in Afghanistan. That story was also a lie.

Biden lies over and over again, at nearly every one of these events where he speaks off the cuff.

And the media never calls him on it.
