Joe Biden received more votes for president than any other candidate in United States history, which means a lot of voters (real or imaginary) liked him. But, how many people who like Joe actually KNOW just how accomplished he really is?

Discover how well you know Joe by selecting which of his claimed accomplishments are actually true and which are exaggerations, fabrications, or outright lies. And you can take this pop quiz without breaking a sweat because it won't be graded, just like Biden's performanceor high school kids in Oregon: Think of it as an exercise in "self-enlightenment".
