‘How Long Until Joe Biden Claims He Was Black When He Grew Up?’ Comedian Tim Young Asks

“I went to the Black church,” President Joe Biden said Sunday – a claim that conservatives, like comedian Tim Young, are mocking as just one more of Biden’s tall tales.

This isn’t the first time Biden has made the “questionable claim,” Fox News reports:

“In his remarks celebrating the birthday of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., President Joe Biden repeated the questionable claim that he frequented a Black church during the civil rights movement.

“Biden gave a speech at King’s historic Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta Sunday on what would have been the slain civil rights icon’s 94th birthday. The president opened his remarks by repeating a claim – connecting himself to the civil rights movement – that has been disputed repeatedly in the past.”

“Let’s lay one thing to rest. I may be a practicing Catholic, but I used to go to 7:30 Mass every morning in high school and then in college before I went to the Black church,” Biden said.

“Not a joke, Andy knows that,” Biden added, addressing former U.N. ambassador and former Southern Christian Leadership Conference executive director Andrew Young.

“Has corporate media ever fact checked Biden on his lie about attending a black church?” Comedian Tim Young wondered in a Twitter post.


“How long until Joe Biden claims he was black when he grew up?” Young asked in a separate post.

If Biden ever did make such a claim, he’d be following in the footsteps of Comedian Steve Martin’s character in the 1979 movie “The Jerk”:

“I was born a poor black child.”
