White House Accuses Critics of Spreading 'Cheapfake' Videos in Which President Biden Appears to Freeze Up

  • 27 days ago
The White House has accused opponents of President Joe Biden of spreading disinformation about his physical and mental fitness through viral videos that have reignited concerns about his age. Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said clips purporting to show Biden's decline had been deceptively edited or misrepresented, labeling the clips “cheap fake” videos. Republican social media accounts and conservative media outlets have shared videos claiming to show Biden freezing up, wandering off alone, or standing motionless. Both Biden and former President Donald Trump would be the oldest presidents ever by the end of their potential 2024 terms.
