Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden has been dinged several times by fact-checkers over claims he has made during the coronavirus crisis, including a total of 11 “Pinocchios” from the Washington Post.

Over the course of three weeks between March 13 and April 3, Biden was fact-checked five separate times for making false or misleading claims concerning the Trump administration’s handling of the pandemic.

Washington Post fact check on March 13 awarded Biden four Pinocchios, the fact-checker’s most severe rating, for two manipulated videos the Biden campaign circulated.

The Free Beacon noted that one video released by Biden’s campaign contained edited clips from President Trump’s comments at a rally on Feb. 28, in which he was referring to Democrats’ attempts to blame him for the virus. However, the Biden video made it appear as if Trump was referring to the virus itself as a hoax.

Another Biden campaign video made it appears as if Trump said the “American dream is dead,” when the quote as taken out of context and omitted the rest of Trump’s statement.
