Joe Biden and Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg on Monday delivered remarks on trucking and the supply chain crisis.
Biden claimed he used to be a truck driver: “I used to drive a truck. It’s a long story – anyway… and I thought I was gonna get to drive one of these suckers today,” Biden said pointing to one of the trucks behind him.

Then Biden told a bizarre story about a truck driver named “Big Mama” and talked about the good old days when he drove an 18-wheeler.
This is one of Joe Biden’s favorite lies.
Joe Biden has never driven an 18-wheeler.
Biden told a story about his days driving an 18-wheeler and radioing to a female truck driver named “Big Mama.”
Joe Biden last July claimed he drove an 18-wheeler.
Biden lied to the truck manufacturer in Allentown, Pennsylvania and falsely claimed he used to drive an 18 wheeler.
Not only did Biden claim he used to drive an 18 wheeler, implied he had to in order to put food on the table.
“And, anyway, I used to drive an 18 wheeler, man! I had to!” Biden said.
The closest Joe Biden ever got to driving an 18 wheeler was riding in a truck in 1973.
There is zero evidence that Biden “used to drive an 18 wheeler”

The White House actually told Fox News that Joe Biden riding in a truck in 1973 is the same thing as driving an 18-wheeler.
When pressed about Biden’s claim and noting that riding in a truck is not the same as driving one, the White House said that Biden used to drive a school bus as a summer job.
