- This is an old recording from 2012 urging Americans to vote against then-President Barack Obama.
"You f----- up now Joe!" reads the description of a video featuring actor Chuck Norris. "You done pissed Chuck Norris off!"
In the video, Norris is standing with his wife and says, "We are here to talk about a growing concern we all share. If we look at history, our great country and freedom are under attack. We are at a tipping point and quite possibly our country as we know it may be lost forever if we don’t change the course our country is headed."
He goes on to say they can no longer stand by and watch the country "go to socialism or something much worse."

That’s because it wasn’t filmed in response to President Joe Biden, as the post suggests.
Biden was Obama’s running mate at the time, but the video is now being presented in a way that suggests it was created recently in response to the current administration. That’s not accurate.
We rate claims that this a video in response to the Biden administration False.
