Fox’s McEnany to Biden campaign: 'You're the one doing cheap fakes'

[

Fox News’ Kayleigh McEnany attacked President Biden’s campaign for “doing cheap fakes” after the White House addressed a string of edited videos depicting the president looking confused or wandering off.

McEnany and the other co-hosts of Fox News’ “Outnumbered” on Tuesday discussed White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre’s comments about a number of videos of Biden that circulated online in recent days. Jean-Pierre had referenced a Washington Post report that described some of the videos as “cheap fakes.”

McEnany suggested that it was the Biden campaign spreading “cheap fakes,” by showing screenshots of three separate posts on social media platform X from the Biden-Harris HQ account. She posted a clip of her own comments on X, telling users to “check out all of the misquoting or mischaracterizing of Trump coming from the Biden campaign.”

“These are cheap fakes. So, Karine Jean-Pierre. You want to talk about bad faith? Look in the mirror, go march down to Delaware. Talk to your campaign. You’re the one doing cheap fakes,” she said, referring to the posts from the Biden-Harris HQ account.

Jean-Pierre was responding to videos of Biden that stemmed from his trip to France earlier this month, his visit to Italy last week and his appearance at a fundraiser Saturday. She said Monday that the videos that appear to show the president confused were done in “bad faith.”

“It tells you everything that we need to know about how desperate Republicans are here,” she said.

“And instead of talking about the president’s performance in office, and what I mean by that is his legislative wins, what he’s been able to do for the American people across the country, we’re seeing these deepfakes, these manipulated videos,” she continued. “And it is, again, done in bad faith.”

The New York Post shared a video last week that showed Biden with other Group of Seven (G7) leaders in Italy watching a skydiving demonstration. In the video shared by The New York Post, it looked like Biden was walking away from the skydivers once they landed. A community note below the post states that the video was cropped.

The New York Post also reported on Biden attending the event in Los Angeles over the weekend under the headline “Biden appears to freeze up, has to be led off stage by Obama at mega-bucks LA fundraiser.” White House and aides for former President Obama pushed back on this characterization of Biden.

The Hill has reached out to the White House and the Biden campaign for comment.
