Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden wrongly said during Tuesday night's debate that he didn't call members of the military "stupid [expletives]."
"He made a statement about the military. He said I said something about the military. He and his friends made it up, and then they went with it. I never said it," President Donald Trump said.
"He called the military 'stupid [expletives],'" Trump added.
"I did not say that," Biden responded.
Biden at the time was vice president.
The video showed Biden saying: “I have incredibly good judgment. One, I married Jill, and two, I appointed Johnson to the academy. And I just want you to know that. Clap for that, you stupid [expletives].”
People present were clapping when Biden made the off-color remark.
“Come on, man. Man, you are a dull bunch. Must be slow here, man. I don’t know,” Biden added.
Biden earlier in the debate criticized Trump for his alleged remarks about troops, saying: "The way you talk about the military, the way you talk about them being losers and being and just being suckers. My son was in Iraq. He spent a year there. He got the Brown Star. He got the Conspicuous Service Medal. He was not a loser. He was a patriot and the people left behind there were heroes."
The Atlantic report was also riddled with factual errors.
