Remember when President Joe Biden declared in a voting rights speech that he had been “arrested” while participating in a civil rights movement? Even the fact that he only SUGGESTED that this happened more than once makes this a classic Biden false claim: it’s nothing but an anecdote about his own past.

The President is known to have made lots of false claims about important policy matters, like those three subjects that occupied a lot of his time: the US withdrawal from Afghanistan, the economy, and the Covid-19 pandemic.
