  • Joe Biden and the case of the Phantom Ice Cream Truck





    Not sure if any of you have heard about this but last September, while "Dr." Jill was delivering a speech before some Middle School about the pandemic, old Joe just turned around and beat a hasty retreat. Very little was said about it at the time because the MSM was still dutifully protecting him as much as they could.

    But then someone edited the clip by adding the sound of an ice cream truck moments before old Joe turns around and scoots off (as much as a nearly 80 year old can be expected to scoot off).

    Basically, in real life, Biden mysteriously walked away from his wife's speech and in this video of it an ice cream truck driving by is used to "explain" his actions.

    While that got a fair number of views it got far more views after Reuters fact checked it nearly a year later.

    Yup. They fact checked a clearly edited video of old Joe getting distracted by an ice cream truck.

    The left is back to fact checking obvious spoofs again.

    You would think they would have learned after Snopes kept "fact checking" the Babylon Bee[1] and were rightfully mocked for doing so.







    Reuters can now proudly say that they got a fact check correct. The obviously altered video had indeed been "digitally edited."

    Can't get anything by Reuters.

    And while Reuters getting ridiculed for their digging up a video like that to "fact check" what is getting overlooked is how the only time Reuters ever seems interested in doing fact-checks regarding old Joe is when they are rushing to his defense.

    Media Research Center went back through Reuters fact checks and noticed the trend of ones defending Biden as compared to few if any checking statements by him or his team. For the last month was apparently typical

    -- July 29: The Atlantic did not not publish a headline on ‘the quiet courage’ of Biden’s economy

    -- July 28: Biden did not sign a “Drag Queen Initiative” that would outlaw “publicly criticizing pedophiles.”

    -- July 25: Image purporting to show Trump statement mocking Biden’s COVID-19 diagnosis is fabricated

    -- July 14: Derogatory "F ​ Joe Biden" chanting digitally added to video of Biden at news conference.

    -- July 11: The Atlantic never published a piece titled "Leave Hunter Alone."

    -- July 11: Sylvester Stallone was not photographed wearing an "FU 46" T-shirt.

    -- July 8: Biden didn't put a Medal of Honor backwards on a Vietnam War veteran at the White House.


    Here is the altered video which appears to have had its image scrambled, or at least I can't see it



    And another posted by someone else


    A screen capture if they don't work

    Notice the realistic ice cream truck that warranted being fact checked



    Further, the actual unedited version is considerably worse than the spoof.





    Joe still shows he still can't leave his paws off of people after being told how many times that just is NOT cool. And in spite of wearing a mask, you can tell that the person pawed by the duffer was quite entertained by the duffers impromptu sudden exit.

    Why I say it is worse is that folks would understand if he was hungry and went off to stop the ice cream truck (it sounded like his wife was winding down the speech anyways), compared to wondering what possibly could have got him to turn around and wander off like grandpa who everyone has to keep an eye on or he'll end up lost.

    And finally, the ice cream truck wasn't the only spoof so Reuters still has some work to do









    1. IIRC, it was the WaPo that got raked over the coals for "fact-checking" Saturday Night Live for a skit. The finally got up the nerve to tease the Obamessiah and the WaPo acted like a pissed off Greta Thunberg: "How Dare You!"

    Reuters "fact checked" a cartoon ice cream truck driving behind Biden on a sidewalk? Wow. Amazing investigative journalism.

      Were you able to see any of those videos of the spoof?

        Saw both of them. I didn't see the still images you posted, though.

        Why DID Joe wander away? I didn't see him pawing anybody?

            Okay, this from Sky News Australia has the spoof starting 24 seconds in so if, like me, you get a scrambled image (I checked two other YouTube channels with it and they too weren't watchable)

              I don't believe it was ever explained. It appeared to me that someone off-camera said something to him, and he went to hear what was being said.

              To walk out on someone's speech when you're in the audience is considered rude (unless you can sneakily do it). But to do it to your own wife - ON STAGE - is laughable. What a freaking zombie!

                Not in the spoof video, but the unedited one

                  And it seems like she was reaching the end so was it really something that couldn't wait?

                      I think she was just getting started. She took off her mask and began thanking people for the invitation.

                      In the longer video, Zombie Joe returns to the stage after about 10 seconds. It would have been great if they put a digital ice cream in his hand!

                        My understanding was the original check was on a video that merely added in the sound. Still pretty obvious, but at least that has a chance to fool someone as opposed to obvious cartoon truck

                          And then somehow edited in the scene where he's holding the ice cream with his mask removed. That would have been comic genius.

                            Yeah, that's the version I saw on Gutfeld! last week.

                            It's almost... I don't know if "funnier" is the word... to see the *real* video, of him just wandering off for no reason.
