White House spokesperson Karine Jean-Pierre defended Joe Biden’s recent claims that his uncle was eaten by cannibals in New Guinea.

During a Friday press conference Peter Doocy of Fox News asked Jean-Pierre, “Second Lieutenant Ambrose J. Finnegan was a war hero. But the Pentagon says for unknown reasons the plane was forced to ditch in the ocean. Both engines failed at low altitude. Why is President Biden saying he was shot down? There's no evidence of that. And why is he saying that his uncle was eaten by cannibals? That is a bad way to go.

Jean-Pierre said “we should not make jokes” about Biden's claims, “He takes this very seriously. His uncle, who served and protected this country, lost his life serving. And that should matter.”

Jean-Pierre avoided discussing the military reports that don’t conform with Biden’s "for real" flesh-eating tale about his uncle.

“He got shot down in New Guinea and they never found the body because there used to be, there were a lot of cannibals, for real, in that part of New Guinea,” Biden told United Steelworkers union members during a campaign stop in Pennsylvania Wednesday.
