Video of the Day: Lyin’ Joe Biden Lies About Number of Military Covid Deaths — Claims Over 6,000 Have Died, Actual Number is Seven

During a speech in Warren, Michigan on Wednesday, lying Joe Biden, the Democrat nominee for the White House, told yet another lie, falsely claiming that over 6,000 members of the U.S, military have died from the coronavirus.

“Every one of these lives matter. Every one of these lives left somebody behind, grieving. You can’t ever forget them,” he said of military casualties in Iraq and Afghanistan.

He went on to reference the number of military COVID deaths and confirmed cases, but overstated them drastically.

“Military COVID infected: 118,984,” he said, appearing to struggle with the list. “Military COVID deaths: 6,114.”

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

But, according to numbers posted by the Department of Defense, approximately 40,000 military members have been infected with COVID-19 and seven have died from the virus as of September 9.  On top of that, there have only been just over 58,000 cases throughout the Department of Defense, and 90 deaths — far lower than what Biden claimed:

DOD COVID-19 Cumulative Totals

Cases Hospitalized Recovered Deaths
Military 40,026 592 24,913 7
Civilian 8,882 357 5,394 55
Dependent 5,339 124 3,439 7
Contractor 3,811 170 2,334 21
Total 58,058 1,243 36,080 90

Here’s video of his blatant lie:

Biden, by the way, never cited the source of his claim, and we suspect no one in the lying liberal media will ever ask.

Personally, I don’t know what’s worse — Biden’s lies themselves, or the fact that he deliberately and blatantly lies about things so easily fact-checked, knowing his stenographers, i.e., the lying propagandists in the lying liberal media, will never hold him accountable.

Let’s face it, Biden just can’t help himself.
