Joe Biden Told A Lie A Minute In CNN Interview With Erin Burnett

The White House rarely allows President Biden to sit down for interviews, and Wednesday’s chat with CNN’s Erin Burnett shows why.

In a brief 17 minutes, Biden told 15 lies — nearly a lie a minute.

From whoppers about the economy to prevarications on Israel, Biden spun a fantasyland of a presidency that voters know is false.

Here’s a rundown:

LIE 1: “I’ve created over 15 million jobs since I’ve been president.”

Biden’s favorite falsehood told over and over and over again no matter how many fact-checks call him out.

He took office at the tail end of a pandemic that blew a hole in the economy when lockdown policies wholeheartedly endorsed by Democrats took people out of the office and onto COVID stimulus checks.

He “created” nothing — after the introduction of the vaccine, people returned to the workforce.

If anything, Biden’s policies slowed the recovery — it took until July 2022 for the U.S. economy to regain all the jobs lost due to the pandemic.

LIE 2: “Other than Herbert Hoover, [Donald Trump] is the only president who has lost more jobs than he created.”

The corollary lie.

Trump was president during a global pandemic and didn’t “lose” jobs.

And liberals were thrilled to put people on government checks and shut down the world during COVID.

They cannot argue that the job market would have been any different in 2020 under a Democrat.

LIE 3: “Look at what he says he’s going to do if he gets elected. Says he’s going to do away with what I’ve done on Medicare, reducing the price of Medicare.”

There’s no basis for this, as Trump has said he “will never do anything that will hurt or jeopardize Social Security or Medicare.”

Further, Trump pursued the same executive orders to lower prescription drug prices as Biden did.

LIE 4: “You know we have 1,000 billionaires in America. Know what their average federal tax is? 8.3%.” notes, “The top 0.1% of earners, with more than $4.4 million in expanded cash income, pay an average rate of 25.1% in federal income and payroll taxes.”

LIE 5: “We’ve already turned it around [on the economy].”

Burnett quoted some tough figures on the economy, noting that the cost of buying a home had doubled and “Real income when you account for inflation is actually down since you took office.”

Biden’s response?


LIE 6: “The polling data has been wrong all along.”

According to an Emerson College poll released Tuesday, Trump leads Biden in all seven swing states. Emerson College Polling

Every survey that says people are upset about the economy?

Every poll that puts Biden’s approval rating at historic lows?

They are all of them, from dozens of different sources, wrong?

LIE 7: “There’s corporate greed going out there. And it’s got to be dealt with.”

Labor costs increased by 4.2% between 2023 and 2024.

They increased 5.1% from 2021 to 2022.

The costs of everything, from supplies to shipping, rent, and taxes, have gone up.


Because of the huge amount of government money injected into the system, minimum wage increases by California and other states and pent-up demand by consumers.

How is Biden going to “deal with it”?

Tell companies they can’t raise prices to avoid losing money?

LIE 8: “[Inflation] was 9% when I came to office.”

This is the lie of the night.

Then Biden went on a first-year drunken-sailor spending spree, and inflation skyrocketed.

LIE 9: “They have the money to spend. It angers them and angers me that they have to spend more.”

They have the money to spend?

According to Bankrate, 76% of adults making less than $50,000 a year are living from paycheck to paycheck, an increase from 71% the year before that.

Biden need only watch the nightly news to see people cutting back on groceries, gas — even trips to McDonald’s — because their spending power has decreased.

LIE 10: “Civilians have been killed in Gaza as a consequence of those bombs, and other ways in which they go after population centers.”

It’s libel to suggest that Israel is deliberating targeting population centers.

Hamas embeds itself among the civilian population, creating bases inside hospitals and digging tunnels under residential apartments.

Israel has been warning the people of Rafah for more than a week to move to a safe zone outside the city.

They do not “go after” population centers, they work hard to minimize deaths while stopping the terrorists who kidnapped, raped and murdered Israeli civilians.

LIE 11: “We’re not walking away from Israel’s security. We’re walking away from Israel’s ability to wage war in those areas.”

But defeating Hamas is integral to Israel’s security.

How does Biden suggest Israel win the war if it leaves the last stronghold of the terrorist group untouched?

LIE 12: “It made no sense in my view to engage in thinking in Iraq they have a nuclear weapon.”

Biden brought this up, saying he warned Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu not to “make the mistakes” we made in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Except Biden voted in favor of invading Iraq.

So Biden may regret that decision today, but it made sense to him back them.

LIE 13: “You can’t only love your country when you win.”

Someone had better tell all the celebrities and elites in the Democratic Party who claim they are going to move if Trump is re-elected or say they “don’t know their country anymore,” or who burn American flags as they rally for Hamas.

Biden’s chiding of Trump with this line would carry more weight if he said it to his own voters.

LIE 14: “I travel around the world, other world leaders, know what they all say, 80% of them, ‘You gotta win. My democracy is at stake.’ ”

Maybe we can’t say this is absolutely a lie, but it sure sounds like one of those statements the press loves to attack Trump for.

Are other world leaders really pulling Biden aside after his nap and saying “democracy is at stake” if he loses? Give us a break.

LIE 15: “Then [Trump] is going to put in a 10% tax that’s going to increase average Americans’ cost by $1,500 a year.”

Trump has proposed no such tax. Perhaps Biden means Trump’s plan for a 10% tariff on imported goods, which may or may not cost Americans more money.

Do you know who else is considering imposing tariffs? Biden. Just this week, under the headline “Biden Looks to Thwart Surge of Chinese Imports,” the New York Times notes that China is using unfair business practices, and Biden wants to counter it.
