President Biden on Thursday told Jewish leaders that he spent time at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh after the October 2018 mass murder of 11 people there — but the synagogue told The Post he never visited.
“I remember spending time at the, you know, going to the, you know, the Tree of Life synagogue, speaking with them,” Biden said in a 16-minute virtual address ahead of the Jewish holidays Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
.@JoeBiden is a lifelong liar.

Barb Feige, executive director of the Tree of Life, said that Biden did not visit the synagogue in the nearly three years since the anti-Semitic attack.
In a phone interview, Feige, executive director since July 2019, said firmly that “no” Biden didn’t visit, even before taking office when he had a lower public profile as a former vice president and then-Democratic presidential candidate.
But like those lies weren’t enough, maybe for the first and last time, Biden decided to appear in public and speak without a teleprompter.
The result was catastrophic!

Biden appeared to have a moment of brain freeze also, when telling an anecdote about his daughter’s wedding, and forgot the name of a song that was played.
His comments came during a virtual event to celebrate the start of the Jewish High Holidays, which focused on recent anti-Semitic attacks, Afghanistan, and the hope for renewed collaboration between people of different faiths.
Biden, a Roman Catholic, ended his remarks by calling on more religious collaboration, and spoke about his daughter Ashley’s wedding to her Jewish doctor Howard Krein in 2012.
