Donald Trump famously called out Joe Biden for lying about his educational accomplishments, exposing the cognitively deficient president for his lackluster record in law school.
Well, Joe Biden is at it again and is telling more lies about his early days in politics.
Dopey Joe claimed during a recent speech that he entered the U.S. Naval Academy in 1965 — which does not line up with historical data.
Biden delivered a commencement speech Friday, sharing the story of an appointment from former Sen. J. Caleb Boggs.

The Naval Academy does not offer graduate degrees, and Biden attended Syracuse University for law school after finishing at the University of Delaware. Biden was a star football player in high school and did play on Delaware’s freshman team in 1961. When asked about the claim on Tuesday, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said she “did not hear that part of the speech.”
Q: "Joe Biden was born in 1942, graduated from Delaware in 1965. In his address, he said he was appointed to the Naval Academy in 1965. Was he?"

Biden has a history of making claims about his background that turn out to be embellished, such as stories about driving an 18-wheeler and getting arrested during a civil rights protest.
The president has made the Naval Academy claim before too — at the same institution and also during a graduation speech. In 2010, Biden told a similar story, only citing 1960 rather than 1965.
“In 1960, I was a pretty good football player at the University of Delaware, and I was one of the guys that applied to come to this great academy,” he said 12 years ago.
“And a fellow named J. Caleb Boggs considered me, and I thought I was going to be a pretty good ballplayer. And then I found out you had two guys in the backfield back in those days admiral, and I realized I wasn’t going to get a chance to play at all. You had a guy named Staubach, and a guy named Bellino, so I went to the University of Delaware.”
Biden graduated from high school in 1961. After making the claim on Friday, Biden began his next statement with “all kidding aside,” though it’s not clear exactly what part the president was kidding about.
The claim was panned by some conservatives, who pointed to Biden’s medical deferment from serving in the military in Vietnam.
Additionally, everyone seems to have forgotten the scandal Biden created when he was caught plagiarizing in law school, forcing him to bow out of a political race.
Joe Biden’s political career should have ended in this moment of 1988.
