Erdoğan ally: Joe Biden is actually Kurdish


A bizarre theory has come forward from a party ally of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan that claims U.S. President Joe Biden is actually Kurdish and not of Irish, English and French ancestry, Ahval reported in citing Cumhuriyet.

Former Iraqi Kurdish leader Massud Barzani (R) talks to then US Vice President Joe Biden on April 28, 2016.

The former deputy of the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP), in which Erdoğan belongs to, Orhan Miroğlu, also sits on the party’s Central Decision Executive Board (MKYK) and made the ludicrous claim on Friday.

Miroğlu said "A Kurdish friend I spoke to recently said that, although it is hard to believe that it is serious, it is not difficult to guess what the purpose is, someone said that Biden's real name was Cımoyê Bahattîn Ağa! He's from the Biruki tribe!”

Twitter users were quick to mock the claim made by Miroğlu, with Professor Özgür Demirtaş simply replying with the facepalm emoji.
