Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) took to the floor to attack President Joe Biden for signing executive orders to undo many of the 220 executive orders that former President Donald Trump signed in his four years in office.
While Republicans continue to block legislation from passing using the filibuster, McConnell went on the attack using a fake quote that Biden never said.
"As recently as October, now-President Biden said you can't legislate by executive action unless you are a dictator. Well, in one week, he signed more than 30 unilateral actions," said McConnell in a video quoted by Forbes.
Washington Post fact-checker Glenn Kessler and CNN fact-checker Daniel Dale both explained that Biden never said that. McConnell never disputed any of Trump's 220 executive orders. Forbes hasn't deleted the video with the false quote.
