A recent letter to The Times listed gaffes of President-elect Biden.  This list has circulated for months and is nothing new.

However, the list seems trivial compared to the lies and false claims by Trump that incited a riot during a joint session of Congress in the U. S. Capitol building that resulted in the deaths of five Americans.
