Joe Biden vehemently expressed anger on Saturday night during a speech in South Carolina, resurrecting a debunked Trump conspiracy theory to criticize the leading candidate for the presidency.
Biden succumbed to unrestrained rage, exhibiting impaired speech as he reiterated the discredited defamation about an ideological adversary.
“Donald Trump, when he was Commander-in-Chief, refused to visit a cemetery, US cemetery, outside of Paris for fallen American soldiers,” Biden yelled angrily. “And he referred to those heroes, and I quote, as ‘suckers and losers.’ He actually said that. He said that. How dare he say that? How dare you talk about my son and all of us just like that.”
Biden says that at the 40-second mark in this video.
Kayleigh McEnany, who was Trump’s White House Press Secretary at the time, strongly criticized Jeffrey Goldberg from The Atlantic for his article on the alleged “suckers and losers” fraud which took place in In September of 2020.
“Ten sources went on the record debunking these lies, eight with first-hand knowledge, stating on the record one common truth: That this story is false. It never happened,” McEnany stated during the news briefing.
She subsequently cited two individuals from Trump’s staff who contradicted the Atlantic’s assertions: Derek Lyons, who was a Counselor to Trump, and former Deputy Chief of Staff Dan Walsh who is also a retired military officer.
“I can attest to the fact that there was a bad weather call in France and that the helicopters were unable to safely make the flight,” McEnany declared, reading Walsh’s words. “Overall, the president’s support and respect for our American troops past and present is unquestionable.”
Look at this guy who just broke into the country and immediately has a problem with authority. This isn't going to end well… for us. I filmed tens of thousands just like him coming through in Arizona during my 7 weeks camped in Lukeville. pic.twitter.com/JCvVx0dDZB

McEnany commended Trump’s unwavering dedication to veterans and those serving.
“Why would a publication abandon all journalistic integrity and publish this story?” McEnany questioned, adding, “It’s because the liberal activists at the Atlantic are uninterested in the truth and only interested in pedaling conspiracy-laden propaganda. Because here is the one truth. No one, and I mean no one, loves and cares for our servicemen and women as much as President Donald J. Trump.”
The Atlantic account was extensively contradicted by witnesses, as observed by Mollie Hemingway of The Federalist.
“This made-up story linked below was debunked and refuted by DOZENS of on-the-record sources and contemporaneous documents. Makes everything published by Atlantic suspect.”

Professor Max Abrahms, an expert on global security, strongly criticized the preposterous journalism.
“So many anonymous sources in this article,” he exclaimed. “It’s just one after another. Reminds me of journalism leading up to the Iraq war.”

Biden made a deceptive implication in the declaration that his son Beau Biden’s death was a result of his service in the armed forces.
The rant unambiguously categorizes Beau Biden as a “fallen American soldier.”
Biden has in the past also talked of his son “dying in Iraq.” Beau Biden succumbed to brain cancer in 2015, several years after he got back from military duty. Joe Biden asserts that the cancer can be linked to the burn pits in Iraq that troops used to dispose of waste.
