Former Vice President Joe Biden distorted the facts in two interviews in the wake of the Nevada caucuses, claiming Sen. Bernie Sanders “was opposed to Obamacare” (Sanders voted for it) and that Biden never labeled South Carolina as his campaign’s “firewall” (he did).
Biden, who is on record calling South Carolina his firewall, now says he’s never said that.
He’s had a few cases now where he‘s made a false claim by reflexively denying a questioner’s accurate premise. https://t.co/Whn98ZBdmc

On CBS' @FaceTheNation, Biden falsely claimed that he had never labeled South Carolina as his campaign’s “firewall,” in case he didn’t perform well in Iowa, New Hampshire and Nevada. https://t.co/Y2YijesBob
