There are two reasons President Donald Trump might have shared this clip on Twitter. Either he’s been duped by a badly edited video of Joe Biden bobbing his head along to “Fuck Tha Police” by N.W.A., or he wants others to think that it’s real. The video was created by self-described satirical YouTube channel the United Spot, which makes the kind of poor-quality pro-Trump comedy skits you might have seen your uncle share on Facebook. Trump shared the post Tuesday night with the caption: “What is this all about?” Hours later, Trump shared the same video with the baffling message: “China is drooling. They can't believe this!” At least the last part is probably true—it’s unlikely China, or practically anyone else, will believe the hoax clip. Twitter later added a “manipulated media” to the footage.
Ironically, the real footage of Biden is only a bit less cringeworthy than the fake version. It came from an event in Florida on Tuesday aimed at winning over Latino voters. After being introduced by singer Luis Fonsi, Biden whipped out his phone and played “Despacito.”
