They spent the entirety of Trump’s Presidency charging everything he said was a lie, but will ‘assume’ Biden won’t make any false claims

The Washington Post spent four years ‘fact checking’ everything President Trump said, and claimed most of it was lies. However, according to the fact checker in chief at the Post, the paper will not even bother to check what Joe Biden says.

The Post told The Daily Caller that it does “not have plans to launch a Biden database at this time,” with the Post’s director of communications Shani George adding that “The database of Trump claims was started a month after Trump became president as a way to not overwhelm our fact-checking enterprise, where the core mission is to explain complex policy issues.”

Glenn Kessler of the Post, who was in charge of the ‘fact checking’ team, tweeted last week, claiming that the paper had found over THIRTY THOUSAND claims by Trump to be false:

In a recent appearance on CNN, Kessler explained that he won’t be leading any fact checking into Biden because “I assume the Biden presidency will be a lot like the Obama presidency, and that they will be responsive, and will be able to quickly back up what they’re saying.”

Over the weekend, Kessler claimed that when he asked the Biden administration to back up five statements in a recent speech, they came back to him immediately:

However, as Newsbusters points out, the documents Kessler received were “from liberal think tanks like the Brookings Institution, the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities, and poverty analysts at Columbia University backed by liberal foundations like the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.”

When the Trump administration previously provided Kessler with “citations from the National Federation of Independent Business for a survey of small business confidence in 2018, Kessler dismissed it as a ‘conservative group’ whose survey didn’t draw enough responses to impress him,” the report further notes.

The Federalist has already put together a list of lies Biden has told in the first few days of his Presidency, and even the New York Times notes that Biden has told bizarre stories about things he’s done in the past that have no basis in truth.

Video: Even CNN Calls Out “Patently False” Border Patrol ‘Whipping’

“Can the Border Patrol count on you and President Biden, who has said that people will pay, to come to a determination based on the facts and not based on Twitter outrage?”

After a week of the Biden administration and Democrats pushing fake news that border patrol agents whipped migrants, and even removing them from duty, even CNN’s Jake Tapper described the story as “patently false” during an interview with DHS Chief Alejandro Mayorkas.

“Some of the initial descriptions of those images were just patently false,” Tapper said, adding “There’s now video out there that provides more context.”

Tapper gave Mayorkas an opportunity to set the record straight, asking “Having seen the video are you certain that there was actually wrongdoing?”

But the DHS chief refused to admit the descriptions of the mounted agents were wrong, prompting Tapper to further note that if Biden is already saying that the agents are going to have to “pay,” how can the investigation be independent?

“Can the Border Patrol count on you and President Biden, who has said that people will pay, to come to a determination based on the facts and not based on Twitter outrage?” Tapper asked.

Watch:

In a further interview with Fox News’ Chris Wallace, Mayorkas declared that the flood of illegal migrants at the border, and the subsequent release of thousands of them into the U.S. is “one of our proudest traditions.”

Wallace then asked why the Biden administration hasn’t erected a “wall or a fence” in response to the crisis.

Mayorkas responded “It is the policy of this administration: we do not agree with the building of the wall.”

When asked exactly how many migrants have come into the U.S. from the latest wave, Mayorkas said “I think it’s about ten thousand or so, twelve thousand,” adding “It could be even higher. The number that are returned could be even higher. What we do is we follow the law as Congress has passed it.”

Wallace also noted that almost half of the migrants are never seen again, failing to appear at asylum court hearings.

“There are more than 11 million people in this country illegally. Clearly, despite your best efforts, millions of people end up in this country and don’t – just disappear,” Wallace noted.

Watch:

In related news, Axios issued an update addressing the fake ‘whipping’ news, deleting a tweet that stirred up and spread the disinformation.

Texas Governor Greg Abbot also vowed to hire any border agents who are punished by the Biden administration for their actions in protecting the border.

    Video: Pathetic Psaki Blames UK Prime Minister For Biden Not Answering Press Questions

    “He called on individuals in his press corps without alerting us to that intention in advance.”

    Following yesterday’s demand from the White House press pool for an explanation about why Joe Biden will not answer any questions, Press Secretary Jen Psaki attempted to blame UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson for not alerting Biden’s team that he intended to take questions during an Oval office meeting.

    Psaki’s pathetic response came after CBS reporter Ed O’Keefe confronted her on press corps members being routinely ushered away from Biden.

    O’Keefe noted that “the British Prime Minister in the American Oval Office called on British reporter, and then when American reporters tried to call on the American president, we were escorted out.”

    Psaki responded “I think our relationship with the United Kingdom and with prime minister Johnson is so strong and abiding, we’ll be able to move beyond this,” adding “But he called on individuals in his press corps without alerting us to that intention in advance.”

    Oh the horror, a sitting leader of a country daring to answer some reporters’ questions off the cuff, without a bunch of handlers herding them away.

    Watch:

    Later in the press conference, Psaki claimed that Biden had answered questions “135 times” recently, but indicated that Biden would hold a SECOND formal press conference at some point.

    Psaki said “The president knows that he was elected not just to get the pandemic under control and put people back to work, but protect our democracy and stand up for what’s right and be transparent,” adding “Certainly part of that is engaging with all of you. I would note that he answered questions 135 times leading up to September, three times last week.”

    As we have pointed out, Biden’s handlers are intent on tightly controlling his interaction with anyone outside the White House bubble, even muting his mic and aggressively yelling at reporters to get away from him.

    A week ago, Republican Senator James Risch demanded to know who is in charge of controlling when the President is allowed to be heard, noting during a Senate hearing that “This is a puppeteer act, if you would, and we need to know who’s in charge and who is making the decisions.”

    “Somebody in the White House has authority to press the button and stop the president, cut off the president’s speaking ability and sound. Who is that person?” Risch asked.

    Tweeting out the video, leftists insisted the claims were ‘bizarre,’ ‘ridiculous’ and ‘absurd’:

    White House Reporters Have Launched ‘Formal Objection’ About Biden Refusing To Answer Questions

    Pathetic scene in Oval Office as British PM takes press questions while Biden’s handlers refuse to allow him to speak

    CBS News reported Tuesday that the press pool of White House reporters have launched a formal objection over the fact that Joe Biden refuses to answer any questions, with reporters routinely being yelled down and physically pushed away by Biden’s handlers.

    The revelation came after an embarrassing scene in the Oval Office with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson answering questions, but Biden not being allowed to by aides.

    Watch:

    Johnson took the three questions from British reporters

    CBS reporter Ed O’Keefe said that “Johnson took 3 questions. White House aides shouted down U.S. attempts to ask questions. I asked Biden about southern border and we couldn’t decipher what he said.”

    CBS radio correspondent Steve Portnoy later reported that “The entire editorial component of the US pool went immediately into Jen Psaki’s office to register a formal complaint that no American reporters were recognized for questions in the president’s Oval Office.”

    Portnoy, also president of the White House Correspondents Association, added that the complaint also extended to the fact “that wranglers loudly shouted over the president as he seemed to give an answer to Ed O’Keefe’s question about the situation at the Southern Border. Biden’s answer could not be heard over the shouting.”

    “Psaki was unaware that the incident has occurred and suggested that she was not  in a position to offer an immediate solution,” Portnoy continued, adding “Your pooler requested a press conference. Psaki suggested the president takes questions several times a week.”

    In addition, National Review notes that after Biden’s UN speech yesterday, French reporter Kethevane Gorjestani “was asked by a very startled Australian reporter whether WH wranglers were always so strict about ushering the pool out without questions.”

    The pathetic display is a continuation of the way Biden’s handlers have been acting since even before he took office, shooing away reporters, giving Biden strict instructions on who he can take questions from, and even muting his mic when he goes off script.

    A week ago, Republican Senator James Risch demanded to know who is in charge of controlling when the President is allowed to be heard, noting during a Senate hearing that “This is a puppeteer act, if you would, and we need to know who’s in charge and who is making the decisions.”

    “Somebody in the White House has authority to press the button and stop the president, cut off the president’s speaking ability and sound. Who is that person?” Risch asked.
