President Joe Biden celebrated Veterans Day on Friday by falsely praising his Climate Envoy John Kerry as one of the most decorated men to fight for America.
“I want to thank one proud American veteran, a lifelong public servant, a dear friend, and literally one of the most decorated men to fight, Special Envoy for Climate John Kerry,” Biden said.
The president spoke about veterans and John Kerry during his speech at the climate summit in Egypt.
Kerry, who served in Vietnam, was awarded a Bronze Star, a Silver Star, and three Purple Hearts, but is not even on the list of the top 50 most decorated veterans.
Kerry’s service medals were the subject of a controversy in 2004 when he ran for president against George W. Bush.
