In his speech today — and on Twitter — President Joe Biden reminded his audience that the January 6 riots happened because his predecessor had been trying to cast doubt on the legitimacy of the 2020 election.

Donald Trump was absolutely wrong to have pushed a stolen-election narrative.

And you know what? So was Joe Biden. It’s entirely possible that Joe Biden in his senility has already forgotten what he’s said in the past. It’s also possible that he’s content to lie to the American public, because he does that all the time.

In either case, it’s incumbent upon us to not let him off the hook for violating his own purported principles:

After jokingly (we think) suggesting that the woman become his vice president, Joe Biden affirm that he absolutely — his word, not ours — agrees with her. Maybe he’s saying it just to make her and the rest of the audience happy. Maybe he’s saying it because he actually believes that Donald Trump did not legitimately win the 2016 election.

At this point, it almost doesn’t matter. Because once again, Joe Biden engaged in the very sort of behavior that he decried in his speech today.

Them’s the rules Democrats want to play by, right?

Get PolitiFact and Glenn Kessler on this, too.

Sure did. But:

Funny how that works.
