It’s Time For The Press To Start Fact Checking Biden’s Lies

The American people will never know the truth.

VERDICT: MOSTLY FALSE. The total number of deaths in those conflicts, including non-combat deaths, is higher.

In his address to the nation from the White House on the one-year anniversary of the coronavirus shutdowns, President Joe Biden claimed:

I’ve told you before, I carry a card in my pocket with the number of Americans who have died from COVID to date. It’s on the back of my schedule. As of now, total deaths in America, 527,726. That’s more deaths than in World War I, World War II, the Vietnam war and 9/11 combined. They were husbands, wives, sons, and daughters, grandparents, friends, neighbors, young and old.

While the number of coronavirus deaths is to be mourned, Biden’s figures are simply incorrect.
Several mainstream media organizations debunked Biden’s claim. Newsweek, for example, noted:

As noted by the Congressional Research Service dataset, service deaths for the three wars combined—including fatalities not directly from battle—totals to 580,135. Adding 9/11 terror attack deaths brings the total to 583,112—more than COVID deaths.

  • World War I: 116,516
  • World War II: 405,399
  • Vietnam: 58,220
  • 9/11: 2,977

After fact checking the war-time statistics last month, a White House spokesperson told The Washington Post that Biden had been referring to in-combat deaths. The president did not specifically make that point during his address to the nation this week.
If battle deaths remains the methodology, it is unclear why the 9/11 terrorist attack was included in the numbers.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was asked about Biden’s false claim during Friday’s press briefing. She grew testy, telling the reporter: “I’m glad you’re focused on the important business.”

Apparently, American deaths do not qualify.

  1. Quote: “I’m glad you’re focused on the important business.” Considering that Mr. Biden promised America “the truth, accuracy and transparency” the lack of those three is indeed the important business. Where was Joe’s focus when he decided to start directly funding terrorists?

  2. The “media” will never fact check Slo Joe, they do not have enough space to print his gaffe
    and total lies. They might be able to print the truth if he ever utters it but then who cares
    we all know he needs to be in a home for the Mentality disturbed and are the criminally
    insane. He is just a figure head and even his “executive orders” are carefully scripted by those
    who have their hand up his rear telling his who, what, when, where and how to speak and
    act. His time is running out fast and they have Karmelta chomping at the bit along with
    Botox Nancy slobering over the chance to to get into the Presidency by any means necessary.
    Even the idiots who lied and cheated to vote know this is the plan and are now worried
    it might happen.
