Now that Joe Biden’s polling numbers have started to dwindle, he has decided to start lying to Americans more directly. The man is nothing if not an experienced gaslighter. He loves to tell Americans one thing and then tell them that he actually said another. When it comes to the topic of police reform, he loves to engage in this highly questionable tactic.
On Monday, he pulled out his biggest whopper yet. He told the world that President Trump is the one who is all about stripping the police of their funding, not him. A reporter confronted him on the matter and instead of being truthful, he decided to pull out yet another lie. “The only person calling to defund the police is Donald Trump,” said Sleepy Joe.

He even referred to the president as a “pathological” liar. Those are harsh words coming from someone who is caught in a lie every time they open their mouth. “I’m the one calling for $300M more for local police, for community policing … The only person calling to defund the police is Donald Trump. Look at his budget. He calls for cutting police funding for local — state and local help by $400 million. Once again, he’s pathological,” Biden claimed.
Biden is only trying to change his story now because the heat is on. The anti police sentiment simply isn’t as popular as it was a few weeks ago. People are beyond tired of seeing riots every time they turn on their television sets. The same Biden who claimed to be ready to strip the police of their funding recently is now singing an entirely different tune.
His campaign has even run ads that attack the police more directly but still, he persists. No one can remember a single time that the current president attacked the police in such a way. This is a clear attempt at muddying the waters by painting the law and order candidate as a scofflaw. Biden’s latest ads are claiming that he will “condition federal funds” and create a national system of reform.
Democrats spent weeks denying their unhinged party wants to abolish the police.

That sounds an awful lot like redirecting funding away from the police to us but what do we know? We just have functional eyes and ears. The Democratic delegates who spoke during the party’s convention also said that they were in favor of defunding the police. “We’re talking about abolishing the police, we’re talking about abolishing ICE, and we’re talking about abolishing prisons,” these are the exact words that they spoke.
Kamala Harris and Biden have both been vocal about their support for the Black Lives Matter movement as well. How can someone voice their support for this movement and then claim to be in favor of more funding for the police in the same breath? That’s classic Joe Biden. He simply says whatever he thinks will get people on his side in that particular moment and lets the rest take care of itself at a later date. If people call him out, he just lies about what he said.
Joe Biden: "Why in this nation do Black Americans wake up knowing that they could lose their life in the course of just living their life?"

It’s a pretty foolproof system, if you happen to be a fool yourself. The flip flopping is at an all time high and we still have a couple months to go. Now that polls show that Americans are nervous about turning over their nation’s policing to social workers, Biden has decided that he is a friend of the police again. He has less than zero shame and we are going to see how that works out for him come election time.
The police union is going to be standing with Trump. This has to sting Biden just a bit. He’s got a fragile ego and we knew this as soon as we saw him yelling at his own supporters. Anyone who questions him on anything might as well vote for Trump, or at least that’s what he tells them. He is about to find out the hard way that there are more than a few people ready to take him up on that.
