This past Thursday, Democrat President Joe Biden made the claim that he had paid a visit to the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, which had been the target of a white supremacist terror attack that ended in 11 casualties back in 2018.
“I remember spending time at the, you know, uh, going to, uh, the, uh, you know, the Tree of Life synagogue, speaking with them,” said Biden during his statements with Jewish leaders, later going on to note that he was specifically referencing the attacking in Pittsburgh, which is the location of the synagogue in question.
“Barb Feige, executive director of the Tree of Life, said that Biden did not visit the synagogue in the nearly three years since the anti-Semitic attack,” stated the New York Post. “In a phone interview, Feige, executive director since July 2019, said firmly that ‘no’ Biden didn’t visit, even before taking office when he had a lower public profile as a former vice president and then-Democratic presidential candidate.”

The Republican Jewish Coalition stated, in response, to Biden’s comments by saying that Old Uncle Joe had “flat out lied about visiting” the Tree of Life synagogue.
RJC went on to add that “[t]he ultimate irony: the person who actually did visit in 2018 with members of the Jewish community? His predecessor.”
Discrepancy? You mean Joe Biden flat out lied about visiting Tree of Life synagogue.

“Wow. Biden lies about visiting Tree of Life synagogue in the aftermath of the tragedy in call with Jewish leaders,” tweeted Matt Brooks, the RJC Executive Director. “That is not normal or ok.”
