Conservatives are questioning why a video address from President Joe Biden looked like a home movie filmed by a teenager.
An 11-minute video published online Monday by the White House features jerkiness, changes in perspective and disorienting changes in focal point. Some critics wonder if the president was so ill from COVID-19 that he made repeated errors, which forced multiple do-overs in his address.
Also, some viewers noted that President Biden rarely blinked and his voice sounded hoarse. It sounded hoarser the longer he talked.
“Here’s 20 seconds of a pre-recorded speech Joe Biden gave yesterday,” RNC researcher Kyle Martinsen commented in a Tuesday Twitter post. “Take a look at how much the White House edited it.” Martinsen added he did not perform any editing on the video excerpt he posted.
Ben Shapiro retweeted Martinsen’s post, adding the comment, “More jump-cuts than an Edgar Wright film.”
“White House: If you don’t blink for the whole video we’ll give you ice cream,” began a Daily Wire caption above a different excerpt from Biden’s video, adding, “White House:” The video below the caption shows Biden saying former President Donald Trump lacked courage during the Capitol riot.
The publication was noting the unnatural lack of Biden blinking, which others commented on as well.
“He doesn’t blink a single time in this entire video,” said Daily Wire’s Michael Knowles.
The president’s prerecorded remarks to the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives Conference were delivered virtually as Biden was observing isolation protocols after contracting COVID.
Biden discussed his administration’s efforts to support police officers and ban assault weapons.
“To me, it’s simple,” he remarked. “If you can’t support banning weapons of war on American streets, you’re not on the side of police.”
The president trumpeted his 2021 American Rescue Plan in his address to the NOBLE, which he claimed provides nearly $350 billion to cities and states suffering economically from combatting the coronavirus pandemic.
Over $10 billion of that money, of that funding, is being used to keep cops on the job, build new training facilities, enhance gun investigations and prosecutions and violence intervention programs,” Biden said.
