President Joe Biden followed up his week of tall-tales about his biography by telling radio host Howard Stern about his life-saving feats, being “arrested” as a kid, and more — none of which was factually accurate.

Speaking on Friday on “The Howard Stern Show,” Biden told the host he had “saved” a “half dozen” kids from drowning back when he was a lifeguard. When Stern followed up and asked him if he had saved any other lives and if he was still lifeguarding when he was “in law school,” the president said, “Yeah, people just need help sometime.” These are lies, as noted on X by one journalist, who included clips of Biden’s comments from the show.

Biden claimed that as a Delaware Senator in the 70s — after he lost his family and before meeting his wife Jill Biden — he received “salacious pictures” from women, but reportedly gave them to the Secret Service.

“I got put in that 10 Most Eligible Bachelors list,” Biden said. “And a lot of lovely women … would send very salacious pictures and I just give them to the Secret Service. And I thought somebody would think I was … (the president trailed off)”

However, Senators didn’t have secret service protection and Biden didn’t get that until 2008.

At one point, the president claimed to have been “arrested” as a teenager while “standing on the porch with a black family” at their home as people “were protesting” desegregation, calling it a “true story,” but that is also a lie.

As The New York Times put it, Biden once again stretched the truth about the Delaware arrest. “There is no evidence that he was ever arrested at a civil-rights protest,” the Times noted.


During the same interview, Biden told another lie, claiming that he was a “runner-up” in “state scoring” in football, when the radio host asked the president about playing football in high school.

The fable-filled Stern interview comes after Biden was slammed on Thursday for telling yet another lie — and it’s one he’s repeated several times after claiming that he used to “drive an 18-wheeler” truck.

At a speech in Florida at Hillsborough Community College in Tampa Bay, Biden made the false claim about his biography, telling the crowd, “I used to drive an 18-wheeler.”

CNN ended up fact checking the claim and admitted it is fictional, despite the repeated times the president has used the debunked tale.

“Biden’s claim remains untrue. There is no evidence he ever drove an 18-wheeler,” the outlet reported.

Last week, Biden claimed that his uncle Ambrose Finnegan — “Uncle Bosie” — “flew those single-engine planes as reconnaissance over war zones, and he got shot down in [Papua] New Guinea. They never found the body because there used to be, there were a lot of cannibals, for real, in that part of New Guinea.”

Megyn Kelly, the host of “The Megyn Kelly Show” podcast, reacted to Biden’s “Uncle Bosie” tale and said, “He can’t go two seconds with telling another familial lie, something about his background, his son…”

“There were no cannibals,” she added, recalling what the survivor of the crash had said, “and went on to tell us what happened.”
