"In March, Biden was forced to walk back his claim that he was arrested in apartheid-era South Africa three decades ago when trying to visit Nelson Mandela.

"He has lied about the circumstances of his family's fatal  car wreck that his [first wife, sons and daughter were] in. He lied about whether the person who was involved in that was responsible or whether he was drunk.

I listened to this on Carlson's show last night. What was said about Uncle Joe matches my own experience of the man. He is of a generation that often sought to impress people with a testosterone soaked projection of masculinity that walked and talked as though they were really, really manly men who had probably been lumberjacks or stevedores in early life. His obvious yearning for the trappings of military life are part of that. When his military lawyer son (Delaware National Guard) succumbed to cancer Joe rounded up all the soldiers and policemen he could find to adorn the poor man's funerary rites. Joe, of course, never served a day in his life.
Telling tall tales is part of the projection mechanism. Watch the TC segment. pl
