Biden claims Boilermakers Union endorsed him but they say he blatantly lied!
WASHINGTON (PNN) - October 19, 2020 - Boasting a fictitious endorsement was among Joe Biden’s most recent gaffes of the day.
During last week’s dueling town hall events, Biden claimed to have the support of the Boilmakers Union. That came after host George Stephanopoulos brought up Biden’s new claim that he doesn’t want to ban fracking, while quoting a Boilermakers Local 154 member who said that this is inconsistent with Biden’s goal of ending the use of fossil fuels. Biden responded, “The Boilermakers overwhelmingly endorse me, OK? So the Boilermakers Union has endorsed me because I sat down with them, went into great detail with leadership, exactly what I would do, No. 1.”
Perhaps Biden sat down with them, and perhaps he went into great detail with the union’s leadership. But they did not endorse him.
