Monday marked the 22nd anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks, and while President Joe Biden did not attend ceremonies at Ground Zero in Manhattan, he commemorated the horrific event while making his way back from a trip to India and Vietnam.

During his speech at a military base in Anchorage, Alaska, Biden claimed to have been in downtown Manhattan on September 12, 2001, however, it has since been revealed via Congressional records that he was, in fact, hundreds of miles away in Washington, DC that day.



"Ground Zero, New York," Biden said. "I remember standing there the next day and looking at the building. I felt like I was looking at the gates of hell; it looked so devastating."



It didn't take long before Biden's claims were fact-checked. Footage from CSPAN showed the then-Senator standing on the Senate floor at 1:45 pm on September 12, delivering a speech in which he expressed his condolences to those whose lives were taken by the terrorists.

Since Biden was not able to make it to New York on Monday, Vice President Kamala Harris went in his place. His absence was slammed by some, including Fox & Friends host Ainsley Earhardt, who called it a "huge break from tradition."

This is a breaking story and will be updated.
