Joe Biden Falsely Claims Lightning Strike Destroyed Most of His Home During Remarks to Hurricane Ian Victims (VIDEO)
Joe and his handler Dr. Jill traveled to Fort Myers, Florida on Wednesday to survey the damage from Hurricane Ian.
Hurricane Ian decimated Fort Myers after it made landfall as a category 4 storm last week.
Dr. Jill upstaged her invalid husband, walked in front of him and was the first to greet officials as Joe lagged behind.
Biden immediately brought up climate change during his remarks on Wednesday.
As if people who just lost everything to flooding from a hurricane want to hear about non-existent climate change.
Biden also talked about himself.
Of course he did.
And it was all a lie.
Joe Biden falsely claimed a lightning bolt destroyed most of his home once.
“We didn’t lose our whole home, but lightning struck and we lost an awful lot of it,” Biden said.
Joe Biden claimed today that he lost “an awful lot” of his home in a fire from a lightning strike 15 years ago.

This is one of Joe Biden’s favorite lies (he has many).
He told this same lie to Colorado wildfire victims earlier this year.
Biden also told a version of this lie last November during a stop in Woodstock, New Hampshire.
“And I know, having had a house burn down with my wife in it, she got out safely, God willing, but having a significant portion of it burn, I could tell 10 minutes makes a hell of a difference. It makes a big difference,” Biden said last November.
It turns out the house didn’t burn down.
In 2004 lightning struck Biden’s home, starting a small kitchen fire (who hasn’t had a small kitchen fire?) – Jill reported the small fire and it was under control in 20 minutes.
Even WaPo’s ‘fact-checker’ Glenn Kessler called Biden out for this outrageous lie last year.
Biden today: We “had a house burn down with my wife in it. She got out safely.”
2004 AP news report: “A small fire that was contained to the kitchen….Jill reported the fire…The fire was under control in 20 minutes.” https://t.co/2VcAebg9r5
