Does Joe Biden suffer from auditory hallucinations or is he merely a habitual liar? While the media obsess over an inconsequential story of a football player’s imaginary girlfriend, the VP largely gets a free pass when he claims he was within an earshot of the 2006 Amish school shooting even though, in reality, he could not have been anywhere near that place. Nice touch, Mr. Vice President!
Mr. Biden told a meeting of mayors in Washington Thursday that he was about a quarter-mile away from an Amish schoolhouse on Oct. 2, 2006, when a gunman shot and killed five students and wounded five others.
“I happened to be literally — probably, it turned out, to be a quarter of a mile [away] at an outing when I heard gunshots in the woods,” Mr. Biden recounted. “We didn’t know … we thought they were hunters.”
But a search of maps of the area in Lancaster County, Pa., shows the nearest golf course to the site of the shooting, Moccasin Run Golf Club, is about five miles away. Rodney King, the golf pro at Moccasin Run, said Friday he was working at the course on the day of the shooting and never saw Mr. Biden, who was then a U.S. senator.
