Joe Biden’s reputation for delivering nonsensical statements – well-established over the years – ratcheted up another notch on Wednesday when he claimed to have been vice president for 36 years.

“I commuted every single day for 36 years as vice president of the United States,” he claimed.

A fact-check with reality finds he was vice president for eight years, Barack Obama’s two terms in the White House.

Biden did commute on Amtrak from his home in Delaware to Washington many times over the years, but not 36 years as vice president.

Fox News detailed how Biden’s first wife, Neilia, and infant daughter Naomi died in a car crash in 1972 when he was senator-elect from Delaware. With his other children in Delaware, and his work in Washington, the now 78-year-old used Amtrak to commute many times.

He also has a long and colorful history of verbal mistakes and blunders, and Politico reported “anxiety about what Biden might say if he takes questions from the media drives some in the White House to mute him or turn off his public appearances altogether.”

The report cited a “bizarre gaffe” just weeks ago when he introduced Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and Biden claimed her lieutenant governor “covers her in every way, both in terms of physically, and mentally, and every other way.”

The Daily Mail reported Biden’s 36 years as VP claim came while he was telling a story about an encounter with an Amtrak conductor “for the fifth time – even though the man in question was already dead at the time the chat was supposed to have taken place.”

This familiar “story” is that Biden encountered Angelo Negri and they chatted about Biden’s traveling two million miles by rail.

Biden repeatedly has claimed the chat happened in 2015, even though Negri retired from Amtrak in 1993 and died in 2014.

The report said Biden earlier told the story in October 2020, in April 2021, in June 2021, and in September of last year.

He’s famous for simple verbal failures, such as forgetting to say “New” when referring to “New Mexico,” the state and promising that Americans making under $400,000 will “not pay a single penny in taxes.”

He also blundered trying to say “oceanic” and then launched “truinnerashuvaduprezure” into the American lexicon.

Eric Trump at one point confirmed that had his father, President Donald Trump, blundered and fumbled like Biden, opponents would have risen up to use the 25th Amendment for incapacitated presidents and removed him from office.
