White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre responded to questions about a number of recent videos showing President Joe Biden ‘freezing’ up by leveling baseless and absurd claims against Republicans. The videos show Biden appearing to be confused or looking feeble, but she suggested that they had been doctored by the GOP.

“There seems to be a sort of a rash of videos that have been exited to make the president appear officially frail or mentally confused. I’m wondering if the White House is especially worried about the fact that this appears to be a pattern,” a reporter asked her on Monday.

“Yeah, and I think you all have called this the cheap fake video, and that’s exactly what they are. They are cheap fake videos, they are done in bad faith, and some of your news organizations have been very clear and stressed that these right-wing, right-wing critics of the president have a credibility problem because the fact-checkers have repeatedly caught them pushing misinformation, disinformation,” Jean-Pierre claimed.

And so we see this and this is something coming from your part of the world, calling them cheap fakes and misinformation. And I’ll quote the Washington Post where they wrote, they wrote about this, and they said how ‘Republicans used misleading videos to attack Biden in a 24-hour period,’ and to their credit, we have a conservative Washington Examiner did call them out as well, calling out the New York Post,” she said.

“Ironically, several recent cheap fakes actually attack the president for thanking troops — for thanking troops. That is what they’re attacking the president for, both in Normandy this happened and again in Italy, and I think that it tells you everything that we need to know about how, how desperate, how desperate Republicans are here,” she said.

“And instead of talking about the president’s performance in office, and what I mean by that is his legislative wins, what he’s been able to do for the American people across the country, we’re seeing these deep fakes, these manipulated videos. And it is again done in bad faith,” the press secretary added.

Republicans say that the videos are not being doctored and, in fact, are not even being taken by them or GOP operatives, though Republicans and conservative influences on social media certainly have made comments about them.
