WASHINGTON, D.C.—President Joe Biden has again repeated the false claim that he once flew an A-Wing into a Super Star Destroyer.
While speaking at an event to tout plans to improve America’s flailing supply chain, Biden claimed to have been a truck driver, a mild-mannered reporter for a major Metropolis newspaper, and—surprisingly—a former Rebel pilot who crashed into the bridge of an Imperial Super Star Destroyer during the Battle of Endor.
“Look, folks! We’ve got a lot of work to do to build this supply chain back better,” said Biden in his opening address. “If I’ve learned anything as a rebel pilot it’s that you need to overwhelm any problem you have with pure numbers. So I’m talking more trucks, more trains, and more fighters. You know, I used to pilot an A-Wing some thirty years ago, there was this man—his name was Captain Antilles—and he told me I had to take down an imperial cruiser all on my own! No joke.”
“Also completed the Kessel Run in 4, 5 parsecs,” he added. “Why are you laughing?”
Politifact has rated Biden’s claim to have killed himself in a galactic space battle as “Mostly True.”
