Another day, another Joe Biden gaffe that the mainstream media will hide from. During a round of interviews with Hispanic and African American journalists, the presumptive Democratic nominee on Tuesday essentially said that all Blacks are alike.
Uhh… did Joe Biden just say that Black people are all the same? pic.twitter.com/iUgkk2uSJo

The Washington Post’s Chief Fact Checker, Glenn Kessler tweets much less than he retweets on Twitter.
He retweets a lot of liberal-media themes. Sometimes his tweets are mangling the facts.
So no one was shocked to see Glenn Kessler running to the defense of Joe Biden and start mangling the facts.
If you listen to the clip, he didn’t actually say this. https://t.co/sU7XeCuHim

Glenn Kessler, Oops!
Unfortunately for Glenn Kessler, his attempt to cover for Joe Biden’s latest ‘Day that ends in a Y’ gaffe backfired after Joe Biden tweeted his mea culpa:
Earlier today, I made some comments about diversity in the African American and Latino communities that I want to clarify. In no way did I mean to suggest the African American community is a monolith—not by identity, not on issues, not at all.

Twitter users, not holding their breath for WaPo’s Chief fact checker to apologize anytime soon, decided it was best to call out Kessler for his egregious Joe Biden bias.

And to think Joe Biden just pulled the rug under Glenn Kessler, his Rapid Response guy in the media, like that:https://t.co/jDG0Omb1Om

I was reliably informed by WaPo esteemed fact checker that he did not in anyway make the comments he’s admitting he made.
I’m so confused. Glenn Kessler himself told me the opposite.

Glenn Kessler calls himself Washington Post’s “fact checker”. What a fact checker. He clearly lies about Biden’s video. Listen yourself. Biden said the Black community lacks the diversityof Latinos. The Marxist playbook is to lie. They truly think they can get by with it.

Glenn Kessler of the WP made the same misuse of “flatten the curve” in describing NY in late June.
Critics pounced and he backpedaled.https://t.co/is2aqPXmeC

TFW you read @factchecknet‘s Code of Principles and wonder how Politifact and Glenn Kessler maintain their verification despite stealth edits, deleted tweets and vanishing of articles from the web and then you see who sits on @factchecknet‘s board… pic.twitter.com/e1DBPwDpaa
