During a speech marking the 22nd anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, President Joe Biden inaccurately stated that he visited Ground Zero on September 12, 2001.
“Ground Zero, New York. I remember standing there the next day and looking at the building,” Biden said, adding, “I felt like I was looking through the gates of hell; it looked so devastated because of…where you could stand.
However, records show that he was actually in the U.S. Senate on that date, delivering a speech.
His earliest documented visit to Ground Zero was on September 20, 2001, accompanied by other senators. In his Senate address, Biden underscored the significance of upholding American values during challenging times and endorsed a resolution denouncing the attacks.
Biden claims to have been at Ground Zero on 9/12 but the record shows he was giving a speech in the Senate that day. Joe just makes up crap constantly and the left gives him a pass. pic.twitter.com/H92JV0BWo9

Interestingly, Biden marked the 9/11 anniversary in Alaska, a decision that stood out, given that it was not directly impacted by the events of 9/11. Such inaccuracies have ignited concerns about his memory of crucial historical events and the appropriateness of his choice for the anniversary’s location.
