President Joe Biden celebrated Veterans Day Friday by falsely praising his climate envoy John Kerry as one in every of America’s most successful men.
“I need to thank one proud American veteran, a longtime public official, an expensive friend and literally some of the successful people to fight against, Climate Special Envoy John Kerry,” said Biden.

Kerry, who served in Vietnam, received a Bronze Star, a Silver Star, and three Purple Hearts, but is not even on the list of the 50 most successful veterans.

During his speech, Biden also recalled that his son Beau Biden was also a veteran.
“On this big day, and daily, I respect all those that have sacrificed themselves for our nation, like my son,” he said.
