He could say he was the first man to land on the moon and the enemedia would rewrite the history books.
So not funny.

Biden mocked for claiming he ‘used to drive’ an 18-wheeler truck
By Lee Brown, NY post, July 29, 2021 |
“I used to drive an 18-wheeler, man,” President Biden said while visiting a Mack Truck facility.
Career politician President Biden is being mocked for claiming he used to drive an 18-wheeler truck — with the White House only able to show he was once a passenger in one.
The 48-year political veteran made the claim while visiting a Mack Truck facility in Pennsylvania on Wednesday.
“I used to drive an 18-wheeler, man,” the 78-year-old commander-in-chief told staff, video of the exchange shows — with him clarifying that he “got to” drive one.
But challenged by Fox News to produce evidence, a White House spokesperson could only point to a December 1973 article from the Wilmington Evening Journal that showed Biden rode in an 18-wheeler, not that he drove one.
“There is zero evidence that Biden ‘used to drive an 18 wheeler,’” tweeted the Republican National Committee’s Zach Parkinson, along with images of the Wilmington paper’s story about Biden’s 536-mile ride.
“The extent of Biden’s trucking experience is that he **rode in** a truck once, for one night in 1973,” Parkinson wrote.

“(He made sure to return home by plane though),” he added, highlighting that part of the story.
“Truck driver, coal miner, it’s all just nonsense Biden makes up because he thinks reporters won’t call him on it,” Parkinson claimed.
When Fox News again pressed the White House that riding in a truck is not the same as being behind the wheel, a spokesperson pointed to a United Federation of Teachers post that said Biden drove a school bus in the past as a summer job, the outlet said.

But most school buses have at most six wheels — a third of the president’s claim, Fox noted.
Asked again about the clear difference, the White House did not respond, Fox said.
Biden was mocked online for the claim, with some joking that he may have been referring to his favorite toys as a kid.

When challenged, a White House spokesperson could only point to a December 1973 article from the Wilmington Evening Journal that showed President Biden rode in an 18-wheeler.
“Maybe he did drive them. Every little boy back in the day had either big daddy 18 wheelers or Tonka dump trucks,” one person joked.
Biden has been accused of other flubs over his past, including that he “got started out of a HBCU, Delaware State” — which the historically black college denied.
