White House Rejects Authenticity Of Videos Showing Biden’s Missteps

The White House has dismissed recent videos showing President Joe Biden in awkward public moments as “cheap fakes” created in bad faith. During a press conference, press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre addressed concerns about Biden’s behavior, emphasizing that the videos were manipulated to deceive the public.

The videos in question included one where former President Barack Obama was seen guiding Biden offstage, and another where Biden appeared disoriented in Europe before being redirected by Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni. Jean-Pierre defended Biden, highlighting the close relationship between him and Obama, and criticized the portrayal of these moments as misleading.

Jean-Pierre argued that the media’s focus on these videos detracts from discussions about Biden’s accomplishments in office. She urged reporters to concentrate on Biden’s legislative successes and policy impacts rather than being distracted by manipulated footage.

Biden’s health has been a topic of public concern, with his physician, Kevin O’Connor, noting conditions such as atrial fibrillation and peripheral neuropathy. These health issues, along with his age, have led to adaptations in his public appearances, including walking with aides and using shorter steps to board Air Force One.

Polling indicates widespread concern about Biden’s fitness for office. A Harvard/Harris survey found that one-third of Democrats question his mental fitness, while a Quinnipiac poll revealed that only a third of voters believe he is fit for a second term. These concerns are compounded by Biden’s visible adaptations to his physical limitations.

As the 2024 election approaches, the White House is keen to emphasize Biden’s legislative achievements and downplay the impact of what they claim are fabricated videos. The administration remains focused on proving Biden’s capability and dedication despite the public’s concerns and the ongoing scrutiny of his health.
