President Joe Biden, a member of the Democratic Party, made inaccurate statements regarding the Baltimore Francis Scott Key Bridge during his address on the tragic incident in Maryland.

During his speech on the bridge collapse, Biden deviated from his prepared remarks to include details that were later proven to be untrue. The bridge fell into the Patapsco River in the early hours of Tuesday following a collision with a large cargo vessel.

In his press conference on Tuesday, Biden stated that he has traveled across Baltimore’s Francis Scott Key Bridge numerous times, using both a car and a train.

However, it was soon pointed out by social media users that the bridge has never been equipped with rail lines, contradicting Biden’s statement.

Biden stated:

“At about 1:30 [a.m.], a container ship struck the Francis Scott Key Bridge, which I’ve been over many, many times commuting from the state of Delaware either on a train or by car.

“I’ve been to Baltimore Harbor many times,” he added.

“And the bridge collapsed, sending several people and vehicles into the water – into the river.”

The internet was quick to call him out:

“So many lies! He lies just to lie,” one X user commented.

“Ummm…what train tracks is he referencing?” radio talk show host Alan Sanders tweeted.

“Because there are none on the Francis Scott Key bridge.”

Biden has a track record of exaggerating personal anecdotes, especially when it comes to national tragedies, which has garnered significant scrutiny.

He inaccurately asserted that he was present at Ground Zero the day following the September 11 attacks. Contrary to his claim, Biden’s own book confirms that he was actually in Washington D.C. on September 12.

Additionally, Biden has made misleading statements about “watching” a Pittsburgh bridge collapse, despite evidence showing that he only arrived at the location hours after the event.
