President Joe Biden has been mocked after he told workers at a Mack Truck facility in Pennsylvania: “I used to drive an 18-wheeler, man.”
“I employed to travel an 18-wheeler, person,” the 78-yr-outdated commander-in-chief instructed staff members. But when challenged by Fox News to demonstrate proof, a White Home spokesperson could only issue to a December 1973 article from the Wilmington Evening Journal — that showed Biden rode in an 18-wheeler, not that he drove one particular. “There is zero proof that Biden ‘used to drive an 18-wheeler,’” tweeted the Republican Nationwide Committee’s Zach Parkinson, alongside with visuals of the Wilmington paper’s story about Biden’s 536-mile experience.
“The extent of Biden’s trucking experience is that he **rode in** a truck once, for one night in 1973,” Parkinson wrote. “Truck driver, coal miner, it’s all just nonsense Biden makes up because he thinks reporters won’t call him on it,” Parkinson claimed. Fox News again pressed the White House that riding in a truck is not the same as being behind the wheel.
A spokesperson pointed to a United Federation of Teachers post that said Biden drove a school bus in the past as a summer job, the outlet said. Most school buses have at most six wheels, , Fox noted (schoolbusfleet.com). The White House did not respond further in regards to this query.
