No, this isn’t a President Joe Biden impostor

If Your Time is short

  • Claims that video footage shows a President Joe Biden impostor are unfounded.

A recent video revives the conspiracy theory that footage of President Joe Biden shows someone who isn’t President Joe Biden. 

Then Oct. 22 Instagram video  showed a split screen of the president’s Oct. 15 appearance on CBS’ "60 Minutes"and an Oct. 18 interview with CBS News while aboard Air Force One. 

"You will soon learn about the #placeholders," text above the video says. "Is this the same Joe Biden?"

The video heavily suggests that the answer is no, focusing on the way Biden’s chin appears in the CBS News clip.

Biden’s chin is more pronounced in the clip of him speaking to reporters on Air Force One, but in reviewing both videos, it’s clear it’s the same person.
