What happened: President Joe Biden dropped an F-bomb during a conversation with Ray Murphy, mayor of Fort Myers Beach. "No one fucks with a Biden," he told the mayor following a press conference to discuss recovery efforts in the aftermath of Hurricane Ian.
Fact check: "No one fucks with a Biden."
• Verdict: This is blatantly false. A Washington Free Beacon investigation found at least nine occasions on which an individual (or inanimate object) f—d with a member of the Biden family and got away with it.
1) Kamala Harris
The only time her failed presidential campaign showed any signs of life was the time she attacked Biden for being a racist during a debate. "Well, that was some fucking bullshit," Biden reportedly vented afterward. Dr. Jill and the rest of the Biden family were similarly incensed, so much so that when Biden eventually won the nomination they lobbied him against picking Harris as a running mate. She got the job anyway and is currently one 79-year-old heartbeat away from the presidency.
2) Mohammed bin Salman
Biden vowed to punish MBS by making Saudi Arabia a "pariah." When oil prices spiked, he broke that promise and started sucking up to the crown prince in order to help Democrats in the midterms. Biden even tapped a board member of a state-owned Saudi company for a top Energy Department post. Alas, it didn't work. The kingdom and its OPEC+ allies announced a massive cut to oil production on Wednesday over the objections of the Biden administration.
3) Trek FX 1 Disc lightweight hybrid bicycle
The bike absolutely humiliated Biden in front of a large group of supporters in Delaware. Doing what comes naturally, the media rushed to the Democrat's defense. But the damage was already done. Biden will forever be known as the old guy who fell off his bicycle like a total dork.
4) The Taliban
"The Taliban is not the North Vietnamese army," Biden said weeks before the Taliban stormed into Kabul. "They're not remotely comparable in terms of capability. There's going to be no circumstance where you see people being lifted off the roof of an embassy in the—of the United States from Afghanistan." But that's exactly what happened. After 13 U.S. soldiers died in a terrorist attack at the Kabul airport, the Pentagon responded by ordering an airstrike that killed an Afghan aid worker and seven children.
5) Hunter Biden / Crack
Joe's crackhead son Hunter has been f—ing up his entire life and putting his family members through hell. He has yet to face any significant consequences for his actions. Hunter currently resides in a $30,000-per-month rental house in Malibu, where he creates works of "art" that anonymous patrons can buy for up to $500,000 a piece.
6) The crack dealer who threatened to kill Hunter
Hunter told the New Yorker about the time he bailed on plans to check into a rehab facility in Arizona by staying in Los Angeles to buy crack. He met up with a man who "took him to a nearby homeless encampment, where, in a narrow passageway between tents, someone put a gun to his head before realizing that he was a buyer." Hunter would return several times to buy more crack. This was around the time he started "consoling" his brother's widow.
7) Jackie Walorski
The late Republican congresswoman found a way to embarrass Biden from beyond the grave. During an event at the White House last week, the president attempted to locate and congratulate Rep. Jackie Walorski (R., Ind.), who died in a car crash in August. "Jackie, you here? Where's Jackie? [incomprehensible mumbling]," he said. "She must not be here." (She was not.)
8) Air Force One staircase
Biden has on multiple occasions been brought to grief while attempting to board Air Force One. These incidents are especially concerning given Biden's advanced age. (He turns 80 next month.) According to the CDC, falls are the leading cause of injury and injury death among Americans aged 65 and up. Roughly 36 million falls are reported each year among elderly Americans, resulting in more than 32,000 deaths.
