OANN reports newly found footage from 1987 captured presidential hopeful Joe Biden repeatedly lying on camera.
One America’s Pearson Sharp has more as Biden backtracks to cover his numerous gaffes.
“I’ve done some dumb things, and I’ll do dumb things again,” Biden said after being caught red handed.
Per Fox News, the video included some damning commentary from members of the media.
“Biden’s critics say he sells himself as a man whose words and visions can inspire a new generation in politics, but if the thoughts, phrases, and visions really belong to others, it’s a form of false advertising,” one reporter said.
“These clips are devastating. He looks like a Joe Biden wind-up doll with somebody else’s words coming out,” Eleanor Clift, then a Newsweek reporter, scolded Biden. “Bye Bye Biden — he may not know it yet, but I think this is going to be very difficult for him to recover.”
“The voters are gonna have to decide whether he was dishonest or dumb,” David Gergen, now a CNN analyst, said at the time.
Fox News reports a surrogate for Sen. Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign revived the plagiarism scandal that derailed former Vice President Joe Biden’s first presidential campaign in 1988 just days before the Iowa caucuses.
Liberal activist Shaun King shared a video showing media coverage of the plagiarism charges that were leveled against the then senator as he was vying for the Democratic nomination.
Biden was accused of lifting rhetoric from then-British Labor Party leader Neil Kinnock in three separate instances at a Democratic debate at the Iowa State Fair. He later conceded that he should have said that he was “paraphrasing” Kinnock at the time he said those remarks. He was later accused of using statements from the late Robert F. Kennedy as his own in another speech. It was reported at the time that he either “quoted or paraphrased” John F. Kennedy and Hubert Humphrey “without credit.”
The 1988 hopeful also admitted to plagiarism for a paper in law school.
“I’ve done some dumb things, and I’ll do dumb things again,” Biden told the press, as seen in the video.
