There's pandering and then there's Democrat-level pandering. While meeting with the residents of Kenosha, Wisconsin, Joe Biden disputed the fact that American schools claim a white man invented the light bulb.

“Why in God’s name don’t we teach history in history classes?” Biden said during an event at Grace Lutheran Church. “A black man invented the light bulb. not a white guy named Edison. Okay? There’s so much. Did anybody know?”

Joe Biden Discredits Thomas Edison on His Light Bulb Invention

There is a lot of debate on whether or not Edison can take sole credit for the light bulb, he invented it in 1879 and patented it in 1880. Lewis Latimer, a black man, designed a carbon light bulb filament in 1881 and patented it in 1882.

Though Latimer did improve the bulb's durability, he did not invent the light bulb.

Even Facebook fact-checker Lead Stories rated this as not true when a meme on the subject went viral.

Here is the viral meme that Lead Stories rated as false:

The never-Trumper said, “It’s an ideology now, and it’s taken root. It’s important to understand what it is so we can do something about it. And what it is is an illiberal, autocratic ideology that bout 30 percent of the country, roughly, are enamored with. They are full-on 100 percent committed to the cult of personality that is at the core of Trumpism. A cult of personality built around Donald Trump. When you look at the convention, what you saw was breathtaking lying, utter lawlessness, and the seizure of symbols in the American republic to become partisan totems for Donald Trump’s tribe to make them symbols of authority over the rest of the country.”
