This past Friday, President Joe Biden made the claim someone from his family was issued a Purple Heart for their actions made during a very famous battle from World War II — despite his statements, there has reportedly been absolutely zero evidence to prove the claims from Biden while a number of key details given seem to make the entire story almost impossible to be true.
Being well known for just making stories up, forgetting important yet basic details of what he is doing, and making a large number of very embarrassing mistakes in the public eye– Old Uncle Joe issued these insane comments this past Friday while speaking at a Delaware Veterans Summit and PACT Act Town Hall.
The story Biden wove this time centered around his uncle Frank, who he stated fought in the Battle of the Bulge, the final major offensive campaign for Nazi Germany during the way in which the Nazis failed to push through the battle lines of allied forces, marking the turning point for the allies winning the war.
You know, I — my dad, when I got elected vice president, he said, “Joey, Uncle Frank fought in the Battle of the Bulge.” He was not feeling very well now — not because of the Battle of the Bulge. But he said, “And he won the Purple Heart. And he never received it. He never — he never got it. Do you think you could help him get it? We’ll surprise him.”
So we got him the Purple Heart. He had won it in the Battle of the Bulge. And I remember he came over to the house, and I came out, and he said, “Present it to him, okay?” We had the family there.
I said, “Uncle Frank, you won this. And I want to…” He said, “I don’t want the damn thing.” (Laughter.) No, I’m serious. He said, “I don’t want it.” I said, “What’s the matter, Uncle Frank? You earned it.” He said, “Yeah, but the others died. The others died. I lived. I don’t want it.”
Despite the story, Joseph R. Biden Sr., Biden’s father, passed away in September of 2002, well over six years prior to Biden becoming the vice president of the Obama administration, expressed the New York Post.
Frank Biden died at an even earlier point, in 199, well over nine years prior to Biden becoming vice president.
The report also highlighted that extensive search of multiple record databases had been carried out but failed to find any evidence whatsoever that Frank Biden had been issued a Purple Heart.
