This September 2021 clip of Joe Biden chasing an ice cream truck went viral over the weekend:
The shame! What a disgraceful—
As probably none of you guessed, this was apparently something called a "meme."
The original video was posted on C-SPAN (here) on Sept. 10, 2021 with the caption: "President Biden and first lady Jill Biden spoke at Washington, D.C.'s Brookland Middle School about the coronavirus pandemic and keeping children safe. The president urged parents to get their children vaccinated if they were eligible."
At around the 01:35 mark, Biden can be seen walking out of frame and returning a few seconds later, but no ice cream truck can be seen in the video nor can any music be heard.
Twitter also confirmed that this is "manipulated media."
Thank goodness the fact checkers were here to help us! We might have fallen into utter darkness if not for them!
Now we now that Joe Biden wasn't chasing an ice cream truck – he was just wandering off in the middle of his wife's very doctorly speech for no apparent reason. That's much better!
