Joe Biden Falsely Claims 6,114 Military Dead from Coronavirus; Real Number Is 7

BY:  Joel Pollak

 

CLAIM: There have been 6,114 U.S. military deaths from coronavirus.

 

VERDICT: FALSE. There have been seven.

 

Former Vice President Joe Biden has been attacking President Donald Trump for remarks that The Atlantic claimed he made about dead soldiers in war (and which over twenty witnesses have publicly refuted). On Wednesday, Biden commented on soldiers who had died during the coronavirus pandemic — and overstated the number by a factor of nearly one thousand.

 

Biden was speaking to members of the United Auto Workers in Michigan. After fumbling about for a card listing U.S. military deaths in Afghanistan and Iraq, which he said he always kept with him — but which he had given to his staff — Biden read the casualty numbers for those wars, along with those for the coronavirus. Struggling to read the numbers, he said:

 

U.S. COVID-infected military — excuse me, U.S. COVID-infected in America: six thousand, three hundred forty-four thousand, seven hundred [sic]. U.S. COVID deaths: one thousand, one hundred eighty-nine thousand, five hundred six [sic]. Military COVID-infected: one hundred and eighteen thousand, nine hundred and eighty-four. Military COVID deaths: six thousand, one hundred and fourteen. Folks: every one of these lives matter. Every one of these lives left somebody behind, grieving.

However, the actual number of coronavirus deaths in the military is seven, according to the Pentagon.

 

Biden also grossly overestimated the number of military cases: the number is 40,026 rather than 118,984.

 

It is not clear how he came up with 6,114. The number of veterans who have died from coronavirus is over 2,500, but that number is still far different from the one Biden recited.

 

For someone who says he cares deeply about America’s soldiers, Biden seemed to know very little about how many have actually been infected by coronavirus, or died.

It looks like he did make a mistake. Unlike the Cult, I'm glad when mistakes are caught and corrected. This is from Fox.

Actually, it's Trump who "sniffs" drugs before his debates. That's why he continually "snorts" while talking in the debates!

Over 20,000 lies by Trump, and still counting, clearly indicates that Trump holds those records!

Remember folks,

 

This bit of "journalism" comes from BRIETBART NEWS.

 

In other words, it's pure horse manure.

 

As Biff Howard Tannen and his great-grandfather, Buford "Mad Dog" Tannen said in Back To The Future....... "I HATE MANURE".

NO! IT'S CONSERVATIVES THAT ARE NUTTIER THAN SQUIRREL POOP!
