After climbing his way out of his basement, Democrat White House nominee Joe Biden actually spoke to reporters on Wednesday, and suggested that Aaron “Jay” Danielson, the Trump supporter who was gunned down in cold blood by a left-wing thug in Portland, brought the violence on himself.
At the same time, he told a blatant lie about Danielson’s murder, which was caught on video.
“I might add, by the way, I think what happened in Portland, where a — one of the Trump guys riding along in vans, inciting responses, shooting rubber bullets, I guess, or paintballs, apparently there was someone shot by someone in the crowd, with a bullet. Killed. I think that person should meet the legal requirements, whatever that calls for, be investigated, and it should follow through on what needs to be done. Let the judicial system work. Let’s make sure justice is done,” he said.
Here’s video of Biden’s statement:

After saying it was possible that Danielson might have been firing paintballs at some point in the day, Breitbart noted:
The victim, Aaron “Jay” Danielson, was killed after the pro-Trump caravan was over, as he was walking down the street. The reported suspect, Michael Forest Reinoehl, is a supporter of Black Lives Matter and Antifa, according to the Oregonian.
The confrontation with left-wing activists involving paintballs happened earlier, as part of the pro-Trump caravan drove through downtown Portland.

The New York Times described the shooting, based on the video:
The man in white and another man dressed in black can be seen crossing the street, apparently to confront Mr. Danielson and Mr. Pappas.
There is shouting that is hard to hear on Mr. Dunlap’s livestream, but in a second video filmed by Nathan Millsap, a Portland videographer, the audio is clearer.
A man, who Mr. Pappas later contends is the gunman, shouts: “Hey, we got some right here. We got a couple right here.”
Another man says, “He’s macing you, he’s pulling it out.”
The sound of spraying is audible, followed immediately by two gunshots.
Mr. Dunlap captures the shooting on his livestream. Mr. Danielson can be seen raising his arm and beginning to spray a pepper spray-like substance, followed almost immediately by the gunshots. The man in white backs away with his arm raised and then runs, along with the man dressed in black.
As we and others reported, a friend of Danielson described what happened, saying they were actually hunted down by the mob.
Biden, apparently, couldn’t be bothered to get his facts straight. This isn’t the first lie Biden has told, and we doubt that it will be the last.
A post at the conservative blog Weasel Zippers was more direct in its criticism of Biden: “F**k this guy.”
