Senator rips Biden as deceitful after Joe claimed his uncle was eaten (2024)

A senior GOP senator ripped Joe Biden as untrustworthy after he repeatedly peddled a strange story about his uncle getting consumed by cannibals in South East Asia.

The tall tale, which the president has told repeatedly, has been directly refuted by a Pentagon report.

Biden claims his uncle, Ambrose Finnegan - known to the family as 'Uncle Bosie' - was in a plane that was shot down over Papa New Guinea during his service in WWII - and that his dear relative was later eaten by local cannibals.

And at the conclusion of a Republican press event bashing Biden's new asylum executive order, Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, got caught on a hot mic poking fun of Biden's strange cannibal story.

She told Senator John Kennedy: 'Bottom line, never trust a man whose uncle was eaten by cannibals.'

Ernst seemingly did not realize her remarks were caught on a hot mic in a room filled with reporters.

The jab at joe was caught as the Republican was walking off stage in a media room on CapitolHill on a microphone she likely did not know was still on.

The rebuke of the president came after a nearly 45 minute tirade from Republican senators against Biden's immigration plan - and a month and a half after his Uncle Brosie story.

Biden claimed his uncle 'got shot down in New Guinea, and they never found the body because there used to be — there were a lot of cannibals, for real, in that part of New Guinea.'

'He got shot down in an area where there were a lot of cannibals in New Guinea at the time,' Biden said at an event in Pennsylvania recently. 'They never recovered his body.'

The loss of Ambrose Finnegan is detailed in a 'missing aircraft' report made on March 17, 1944 and kept at the National Archives.

Despite not being at the podium the microphones still picked up her bashing Biden

Marked 'Secret' the War Department report shows he was not flying the plane and was a passenger. There were three 'crew' and one 'passenger' on board. Finnegan was listed as a 2nd Lieutenant who was a 'courier.'

According to the report the weather was 'good' when the plane went down and there was 'nil' evidence to suggest whether or not those on board had survived.

While Biden said the plane was shot down, a separate Pentagon report suggested it ditched in the ocean after engine failure.

The report by the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency said there was a crew of three and one passenger, and the plane departed Momote Airfield, Los Negros Island, for a courier flight to Nadzab Airfield, New Guinea on May 14, 1944.

'For unknown reasons, this plane was forced to ditch in the ocean off the north coast of New Guinea,' the report said. 'Both engines failed at low altitude, and the aircraft's nose hit the water hard.'

'Three men failed to emerge from the sinking wreck and were lost in the crash.'

'One crew member survived and was rescued by a passing barge. An aerial search the next day found no trace of the missing aircraft or the lost crew members.'

It said Second Lieutenant Ambrose J. Finnegan was 'the passenger on this Havoc when it was lost.'

On Tuesday at the GOP press event, Republicans painted Biden asdeceitful about his border policies.

'On day one of his presidency, Joe Biden rolled into the White House. He got into the Oval, and he dismantled everything that President Trump had in place that kept a lid on these illegal border crossings,' Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, said.

'So now here we are years later, and it has taken 10 million illegal border crossings for President Biden to step up and acknowledge that there is a crisis at the border and you know what, folks? It's his own making,' Ernst continued.

Sen. Roger Marshall, R-Kan., claimed that Biden's executive action is a bate-and-switch, saying the president wants to look tough on immigration in an election year.

'Our borders have been left vulnerable and the safety of our citizens compromised. And here we stand just five months before this critical election with Joe Biden and the Democrats grasping for a political lifeline,' he said.

'Joe Biden's decisions are basically rubber stamping the presence of cartel and criminal enterprises at our borders and really throughout the entire nation. Now, this is not a policy, this is a betrayal of the American people by the White House.'

Ernst slammed Biden's executive action as being an election year ploy

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, emphatically picked up a poster to demonstrate how many migrants have crossed into the U.S. unlawfully under President Joe Biden

'President Biden isn't addressing the crisis,' Sen. Pete Ricketts, R-Neb., said. 'He's maintaining a catastrophe.'

'Since he's been in office, he has allowed all the Trump era policies that work so successfully, to either go away not enforced or he's repealed them.'

'In his first 100 days of office he issued 94 executive orders. President Trump built 500 miles of wall. President Biden stopped that with his executive orders.'

'This President is not serious,' Ricketts continued. 'He has opened our southern border and now because it's election year. He's trying to show the American people that he's taking steps, but we're not going to believe it.'

Sen. Blackburn, R-Tenn., expressed the same sentiments at the event.

'Human trafficking, the sex trafficking, the numbers are adding up and here you go with an election year political gimmick to try to push this issue aside so that [Biden] can go to a debate and say, 'Well, I did something.''

An energized Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas., said at the presser that Biden and Democrat lawmakers have presided over 'a criminal invasion of the United States' by allowing over 10 million migrants to enter the U.S. since the president took office.

He alleged that Biden 'deliberately broke the system' and now in an election year the president is trying to fix it.
