Fact-checkers have noted that Biden exaggerates and embellishes at times like most politicians
Sunday morning CNN talk show Reliable Sources's fact-checker Daniel Dale said US President Joe Biden isn't perfect, he lies too although small in number.
His claims are "more like a smattering" of false statements compared to "the daily avalanche" that came from former President Donald Trump, CNN reported.
As fact-checkers are entering a new era under President Joe Biden's administration, it was noted that Biden exaggerates and embellishes at times like most politicians.
Dale said Biden made at least four false statistical claims during a CNN town hall last week on issues including the minimum wage, undocumented immigrants, China's workforce and the Covid-19 vaccine.
Politifact editor Angie Holan said the absence of Trump's voice in daily media "has freed us up to fact-check other things," including the power outages in Texas.
Dale has been able to focus on other fact-checking endeavors, too. "There's still so much nonsense" and misinformation, Dale said. "I'm not going on vacation," Dale said. "There's a lot to do."
