So... people are known to engage in lies and propaganda in politics. This is really just another example of who you cannot trust.
Conservatives from right-wing US media jumped on the chance to criticize the new president after the clip circulated online.
This caused the original poster of the clip to defend the president.
Timothy Burke, who captured the vision, quickly pointed out that Biden had taken his mask off briefly to sing at the memorial site.
“He wore his mask immediately prior to this and put it back on as soon as he finished his TV hit,” Burke clarified.
Likewise, it turned out that Biden’s grandkids had only briefly not worn their masks, for a photo opportunity.
“The older Biden grandkids, plus Ashley Biden in a chic tux, take pictures at the Lincoln Memorial,” a Bloomberg reporter wrote to accompany the picture of the unmasked children.
“And then Jill Biden joined them and they admired her corsage.”
By this point, they were wearing masks again.
President Joe Biden succeeds Donald Trump, who was rarely spotted wearing a mask during his presidency.
So yes... fake news does exist.
