Foreign. Once again US President Joe Biden has claimed to have met a politician long after his death. The 81-year-old politician now has a solid history of claiming to have spoken to the dead.
At two separate events in New York on Wednesday told Biden about how during a meeting in Great Britain in 2021 he met German Chancellor Helmut Kohl.
Kohl – who was German leader from 1982-1998 – died in 2017, reports NBC News.
The new frog comes just days after Joe Biden talked about his meeting in 2021 with former French president Francois Mitterrand – who died in 1996.

New bizarre frog.
Claimed having had a conversation with Mitterrand – who died in 1996 – in 2021. https://t.co/kAkqzyMwpu

Biden, 81, has a history of claiming to have spoken with the dead. For example, in 2022, the president told a rally in Florida that he had spoken with the man who “invented” insulin. Frederick Banting and John Macleod, who discovered insulin, were both dead in 1942 when Joe Biden was born.
Shortly before the incident in Florida, Biden spoke at a White House hunger conference and then asked about Congresswoman Jackie Walorski – who died in a high-profile car accident in August of that year.
– Jackie, are you here? Where is Jackie? muttered a visibly confused Biden as he delivered his opening speech at the conference.
"Jackie, are you there?" Here's Biden calling for dead woman https://t.co/MX2ZMZryfD

Joe Biden also told a group of donors during his 2019 presidential campaign that former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, who died in 2013, was worried about the United States during Trump. When he had the mistake pointed out to him, Biden described the whole thing as a “Freudian fallacy” and explained that he meant to say British Prime Minister Theresa May.
