No, a ‘nasty photo’ of first lady Jill Biden wasn’t leaked

If Your Time is short

  • No such photo was leaked of first lady Jill Biden. This claim alludes to images taken of Biden at a recent public event.

A recent Facebook post suggests an inappropriate image of first lady Jill Biden is circulating online, calling her the "worst first lady ever."

"Nasty photo of Jill Biden LEAKS," the March 9 post says. 

It was flagged as part of Meta’s efforts to combat false news and misinformation on its News Feed. (Read more about our partnership with Meta, which owns Facebook and Instagram.)

A link in the post’s comments leads to a Jan. 21 blog post describing what it calls a viral photo of Biden. But there is no mention of a "leaked" and "nasty" photo of the first lady.

Rather, the blog post describes recent photos and video taken of Biden at a public event at Hunter High School in West Valley City, Utah, where she spoke Jan. 16.

Fox News was among the news outlets to report on "the rather unfortunate placement of ‘Hunter High’ signs during her remarks, which called to mind her son Hunter Biden’s struggle with drug addiction." 

Claims that a supposed nasty photo of Biden was leaked are False.
