    "Biden’s claim that gun owners support his gun-control proposals":

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/poli...gun-owners-support-his-gun-control-proposals/

    excerpt

    The Pinocchio Test
    Numerous surveys show that a vast majority of Americans, including gun owners, support enhanced background checks. But Biden went too far in claiming that a majority of gun owners also support a ban on assault weapons. The White House could not point to a poll that supported the claim, while a recent Post poll found that a narrow majority opposed it.

    The president earns Two Pinocchios.

    Some of those tweets have earned more Pinocchios than Biden could in two terms.

    I noticed that Republicans ignored Trump's 30,500 lies.

    I think some of these would fit better into a "W(why)TF did Joe say that?" type of thread.

    But anyway, I like that he's speaking with dead fed chairs -- maybe using supernatural advisors? :eek:

    "Biden’s nonsensical claim about Alzheimer’s and hospital beds":

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/poli...ensical-claim-about-alzheimers-hospital-beds/

    excerpt

    The Pinocchio Test
    Biden wants to show that he considers combating Alzheimer’s and other diseases to be an important priority. That’s a laudable aspiration. But he shouldn’t gild the lily with figures that seem plucked from thin air — which might also explain why they change depending on the day. Contrary to his claim, our calculations show that in 2040 there would still be plenty of hospital beds even with the anticipated increase in patients with Alzheimer’s disease.

    The president earns Four Pinocchios.

    "Biden’s inaccurate jab at Manchin’s and Sinema’s voting records":

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/poli...accurate-jab-manchins-sinemas-voting-records/

    excerpt

    The Pinocchio Test
    There’s no evidence that either Manchin or Sinema vote more with Republicans. They are certainly more moderate than other Democrats and in a 50-50 Senate, they have the power to block any part of Biden’s agenda they find objectionable. So, as in the case of Tanden, a vote does not even have to take place, making it difficult to rely on a scorecard. Both senators certainly have been firm in rejecting changes in the filibuster rules, which if eliminated would make it much easier for Biden to pass his program. So we can’t completely say his claim is off base. But it’s close.

    Biden earns Three Pinocchios.
