Dementia Joe on Inaugeration Day “Salute the Marine”

It's amazing that Trumpers have to go to such lengths to try to discredit our new president. We Americans didn't have to fake anything to discredit the last one.

This thread is a deliberate attempt to spread a lie based on a 4 Pinocchio falsehood tweet and mischaracterized video. About six hours after it was published, and fact checked, the tweet and the user account associated with it were removed from Twitter. The video the OP uses was tweeted on Jan. 21 and it misrepresents words spoken by President Biden in order to push discredited conspiracy theories about his mental fitness.
‘Good-looking Marines’: Video misrepresents Biden at inauguration

Quote:
As the country witnessed Biden being sworn in as the 46th U.S. president, right-wing message boards and QAnon communities started adapting their post-Trump worldview into something that could still fit their narrative — which leads us to the tweet mentioned above.

The tweet, originally posted by the now-defunct Twitter handle @EIElephantes, alleges that Biden is wearing an “earpiece” and receiving orders from an unidentified “someone” to “salute the marines” on his way inside the Capitol. The tweet goes on to allege that Biden simply “repeated the words” said to him via the earpiece, noting that the Marines flanking the Capitol entrance weren’t “saluted” after all.

The Pinocchio Test
The tweet is a clear misrepresentation of a moment captured by the live feed on Inauguration Day. It simply does not support the assertions made by the tweet — which aims to propagate an already discredited narrative.
https://www.washingtonpost.com/polit...-inauguration/

Quote:
The source for the video featured in the tweet is C-SPAN and the tweeter mislabeled the action on-screen when compared with the original video feed.
The longer, original video included in the article — which shows the same camera angle — also shows the arrival of Joe Biden at the Capitol the morning of Jan. 20. As for him saying “salute the Marines” as he passed through servicemen that flanked him, it’s just not the case.

Biden did not utter the phrase “salute the Marines.” Instead, he remarked, “Good-looking Marines” as he passed through the Capitol doors.

As for not saluting the troops? A president is commander in chief of all U.S. military forces. No regulation exists stating a president must give out or return a salute.
BTW the Marines didn't salute because it was not yet 12 noon and Biden was not yet Commander-in-Chief. Saluting by either party would have been inappropriate but facts never get in the way of Trumpism's viral tweets do they?

Much like what is going on in this thread, the smear tweet earned thousands of retweets and likes before being taken down for being false. Disgusting moronic propaganda as the video itself doesn’t come close to supporting the conspiratorial accusations.

As the OP, I’d like to clarify a few things:

—this is not a “deliberate attempt to spread a lie” or to “discredit” Joe. Is the video doctored? If not, simply showing the video iis not the same as me or other people “deliberately smearing” Joe Biden. Furthermore, I do not have a history of posting deliberately false or inaccurate information.

—everyone can listen and decide for themselves. Many people are hearing “good looking marine” but also MANY people are hearing “salute the Marine”

—this kind of thing wouldn’t get traction if it weren’t believable. Maybe you should ask yourself why it is so easy for many people to believe this is something that Joe would say or do.

—I don’t trust the Washington Post any more than you trust Breitbart, so the WaPo saying it is true or not true means squat to me

—these tweets are still up all over the place on Twitter, and it is completely accurate to say that Twitter is not exactly a fair arbitrator of accurate information one way or the other

—maybe get down from your holier than thou pedestal about people trying to discredit the new President when that’s all your side did. You are not coming from a blameless place.

Either you people are legit deaf or are being deliberately idiotic. You can clearly hear Biden say something “looking marine”. End of story. Christ.

One might think that a person who lived in the Federal Government for half
a century would know that the Commander In Chief salutes the Marines.

Where is that written? The President doesn't have to salute anyone; it isn't a requirement or regulation, and a salute in return from the President isn't expected when one is rendered to him. Civilians don't have to salute, and the President is a civilian not in uniform; Commander-in-Chief isn't a military rank, it's a job/title.

He ostensibly was wearing an earpiece telling him what to do. But because he is slipping into senility, he got confused and verbally repeated “salute the marine”. Or he got mixed up from a lot of practice and said this to himself. In either case, he did not actually salute the marine.

An incapacitated old man has been installed as a puppet President. This is a sham; it’s an open secret. Who is pulling the strings? How could DOCTOR Jill Biden allow her husband to be used this way?

Kamala is waiting in the wings, pending the invocation of the 25th amendment, which she will instigate. God help us.

Download the video before it is scrubbed. Relevant portion around 1:10 mark.
