Biden admits tale of arrest while visit Nelson Mandela was untruthful: ‘I wasn’t arrested’

At least three times during the 2020 presidential campaign, then-candidate Joe Biden made mention of getting arrested while attempting to visit Nelson Mandela when he was a senator. However, the truth was unearthed, whether he meant to or not, by the president himself.

Speaking to South African President Cyril Ramaphosa during a visit to the White House, Biden gave the latest and less exciting version of his story:

“I was a senator at the time, and we met in the Senate Foreign Relations executive committee room… and he came in, and we all stood there and said hello to him and the like. And afterwards, he asked me to come by my office. And he came by to say thank you, because he heard I had been stopped trying to get to — to visit him, to see him in prison,” Biden said.

He then admitted that he lied about being arrested, and was just stopped.

“I said once — I said I got arrested, I wasn’t arrested. I got stopped, prevented from moving,” Biden awkwardly admitted.

The president’s administration “confirmed that his claim of being arrested was not accurate and that he was separated from other congressmen at an airport during a 1976 visit to Lesotho, which borders South Africa”, reports Townhall.

Even The New York Post says that a congressman contradicted that version of the story as well, and it is not the first time Biden has been caught fabricating stories and creating confusion.

“In 2020, he claimed to be a ‘full-time’ professor after leaving the Senate, however according to the Daily Caller Biden never even taught a class” writes Townhall.
“Biden better be careful about what he wished for, he and his entire family have grounds to be arrested for real with all of the corruption they have committed.”
