Fox News Contributor Says Biden Using Family Issues for Political Gain

Joey Jones, a contributor to Fox News and a former member of the United States Marine Corps, said that President Biden keeps making the same errors in his efforts to win over people. The fact that he was ready to take the tragedies that occurred inside his own family to gain some political ground with certain demographics was something that irritated him.

At the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery in France, the President spoke again about his grandfather, Ambrose Finnegan, and related the narrative of his grandpa’s life. He said that whenever he visits a military cemetery where soldiers are laid to rest, it brings back memories of his grandpa and his mother discussing his death in the South Pacific. He claimed that this is something that he does every time he visits a military cemetery.

The military narrative of Biden’s grandpa succumbing as a victim of cannibalism in New Guinea attracted the interest of The New York Times. Times writer Linda Qiu decided to investigate the validity of the President’s statements during the war. According to Qiu’s writing, Biden’s assertion that Finnegan’s aircraft was shot down before he was eaten by cannibals in New Guinea is not substantiated by military documents or by anthropologists.

The second lieutenant was a rider on an aircraft that fell into the ocean on the north shore of New Guinea in May of 1944 due to the failure of its engines, as stated by the Pentagon. It resulted in the deaths of three persons, one of which was Biden’s uncle, while a fourth individual was miraculously saved by a boat. Finnegan was not the pilot, and there is no evidence to suggest that the jet was shot down. 

When commenting about the recent US contribution of $225 million to Ukraine, President Biden made a mistake and referred to Iraq as he was wrapping up his trip to France.

Biden’s geographical error was later rectified by a stenographer working for the White House in a transcript created after the speech. The first time President Biden confused Iraq with Ukraine was last June.
