Biden gets booster shot with fake picture of the White House behind him. When is a fake setting not a fake setting? When President Joe Biden sits in front of it.
The “independent fact-checkers”, a phrase that in itself strains credulity, leaped to defend Biden after he received a COVID booster shot in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building on Sept. 27. For political rookies, the EEOB is not the White House, but sits next to the White House.
Jokers on Facebook showed a photograph of Biden getting his booster vaccination in the South Court Auditorium in front of a set that resembled the Oval Office. One said, “Joe Biden using a fake White House backdrop is so on brand for him.” Another Facebook post said, “They created a fake set for Biden to get his booster shot. The entire Biden presidency is one giant charade.”

The Facebook post from the page “Cloyd Rivers” quoted here as “False” was simply taken down. It can no longer be found.

And: “The backdrop behind Biden as he was getting his booster shot wasn’t ‘created’ for that event — it had been used five days earlier for a global coronavirus summit.” So if the fake setting is not new, it’s not fake?
PolitiFact wasn’t alone. The website Lead Stories, heavily used to suppress Facebook content, ran an article, too. It […]
