(TStarnes) – President Biden didn’t just lie about gas prices at a speech in New York.
The Democrat president also lied about having a “starting” position on his college football team.
Biden told supporters he left the team for his first wife, Neilia Hunter Biden, the late mother of Beu, Hunter, and Naomi.
“I married a beautiful woman from Skaneateles Lake,” Biden said. “I met her on spring break and fell head over heels in love with her and gave up a starting job on the football team in Delaware to come up … every weekend because I couldn’t stay away.”
But records from the Daily Pennsylvanian show he left because he had a 1.9 GPA, forced by his father, Joe Biden, Sr., who said his son “was never a knock-down, drag-out scholar. That’s for sure. He was primarily interested in girls and sports.”
Biden’s father just wanted him to get B’s or at least a C-plus average.
The president even wrote about this in his 2007 book: “When my first semester grades came out, my mom and dad told me I wouldn’t be playing spring football.”

“This is completely made up,” Zach Parkinson, the GOP deputy communications director, tweeted.
“Biden briefly played football at Delaware as part of the freshman team, not the varsity. He didn’t letter and never had a ‘starting’ job,” Parkinson said. “And why’d he quit? His father made him because he had terrible grades.”
This isn’t the first time Biden lied about his football career. At a 2012 campaign stop, he claimed he was on the University of Delaware team as a freshman in 1963 that beat the Ohio Bobcats.
“I just double-checked my memory, you know, you get to my age, and you’re not so sure you remember. You know, your glory days look more glorious than they really were,” Biden said at the time. “I went back on the internet, and I just want you to know that I came here on Oct. 19, 1963, and we beat you Bobcats, 29-12.”
The university told HuffPo Biden didn’t play in that game.
