White House criticizes ‘bad faith’ viral clips of Joe Biden

The White House has hit back at what they are calling “bad faith” viral videos that are being used to question President Joe Biden’s mental state. The most recent incident involved footage from a weekend fundraiser where Mr Biden’s opponents claimed he was confused and needed Barack Obama’s assistance. However, the White House has refuted these claims, stating that Mr Biden was simply pausing to take in the applause.

This is just one example of how selectively edited videos are being used in a deliberate misinformation campaign against the President. With the US election race heating up, both Mr Biden, 81, and his challenger, Donald Trump, 78, are under scrutiny for their mental acuity.
