Although Joe Biden's "you ain't black" comment from his Friday interview with Charlemagne tha God has gone viral, it wasn't the only outlandish thing Biden said during the interview.

The former vice president pointed a recent study published in the New York Times, which claimed that fewer people would have died from the coronavirus if the U.S. had shut down one week earlier. He then claimed he himself had called for that very thing.

He said, "If (President Trump) had listened to me, and others, and acted one week earlier to deal with this virus, there’d be 36,000 fewer people dead. Dead! Dead! And you guys are wondering, what’s he doing? Come on, man! Get a life! Get a life!"

Shockingly, Biden was lying. He never called for the country to be shut down. President Trump gave an address from the Oval Office on March 11. A week before that, Biden was still traveling the country and holding campaign rallies, according to Breitbart News.
