Biden Spokesman Doubles Down After Getting Called Out For Charlottesville Disinformation

594

On Thursday, Breitbart’s Joel Pollak asked former Vice President about a lie he’s been peddling – namely that President Trump called neo-Nazis “very fine people” during his speech in the aftermath of the Charlottesville Unite the Right rally.

Biden began his remarks at the “Political Soapbox” at the Iowa State Fair by repeating the claim that Trump had called neo-Nazis “very fine people”: “Charlottesville — that hate and that venom that we saw, and then the president saying, when asked about the groups … as well as the young woman, when she was killed, he said there were very fine people in both groups. Very fine people. No president, sitting president has ever said something like that. And the only thing that’s happened is it’s gotten worse.” –Breitbart

When asked by Pollak “Mr. Vice President, are you aware that you’re misquoting Donald Trump in Charlottesville? He never called neo-Nazis very fine people?” Biden angrily replied “No, he called all those folks who walked out of that, neo-Nazis shouting hate. Their veins bulging.”

But he specifically said he was condemning them,” replied Pollak, to which Biden erupted “No he did not. He said he walked out and he said it. He said there were very fine people in both groups. They were chanting anti-Semitic slogans and carrying flags.”

Biden then stormed away from Pollak.

Enter Biden spokesman, Bill Russo – who tweeted pure disinformation trying to prove Breitbart wrong, with a partial transcript of Trump’s Charlottesville comments.

What Russo failed to include was what Trump said shortly after – which Breitbart‘s called him out for over Twitter for omitting the part where Trump says “I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists, because they should be condemned totally.

 

After his public shaming, Russo doubled down, tweeting “Ok so exactly which of the torch-wielding, Nazi-saluting fanatics chanting “Jews will not replace us” fit your gaslighting narrative?”

 

The Twitterverse was not kind to Bill:

So not only is the the Democratic 2020 frontrunner peddling a provable lie, his spokesman just reinforced it with easily disprovable disinformation!
