President Biden is again being accused of exaggerating his past, this time for saying that his Delaware home once burned down with the first lady inside — while local officials have said it was just a small kitchen fire.
The commander-in-chief raised the 2004 blaze last week during remarks at a rusty New Hampshire bridge promoting his just-enacted infrastructure plan.
“What happens if the bridge collapses and there’s a fire on the other side?” said Biden, raising the specter of emergency response delays. “It’s going to takes 10 miles longer to get to the fire. People can die. I mean, this is real. This is real stuff.”
Later in his remarks, the president added: “And I know, having had a house burn down with my wife in it — she got out safely, God willing — that having a significant portion of it burn, I can tell: 10 minutes makes a hell of a difference.”
The line about “having a significant portion of it burn” matches what Biden said in a 2013 speech in which he thanked firefighters and EMTs who “got my wife out” from the fire sparked by lightning. (Read more from “Biden Claims Small Kitchen Fire Nearly Burnt House Down ‘With My Wife in It’” HERE)
