As Twitchy reported earlier, the New York Times has a piece today called “Biden, Storyteller in Chief, Spins Yarns that Often Unravel.” In other words, he lies … but he does it in a lovable, folksy manner so no one minds.

Last November, while touting his infrastructure plan, Biden relayed how important bridges are to emergency services, recalling the time that he “had a house burn down with my wife in it”; fortunately, Jill got out safely. Even Washington Post fact-checker Glenn Kessler, who’d do anything to carry water for Biden, said all he could find was a 2004 report of “a small fire that was contained to the kitchen” and “was under control in 20 minutes.”

Biden recently repeated the story while visiting Florida in the wake of Hurricane Ian, saying that he once “lost an awful lot” of his home in a fire, so he could empathize with the storm damage.

Biden repeated the story Tuesday while talking about firefighters, and in this version, they almost lost a couple of firefighters.

That’s why the New York Times had to step in today and try to make Biden’s “yarns” seem “folksy.”
