Fact Check: Was Joe Biden Video Filmed in Front of a Green Screen?

Published

Speculation has erupted over Joe Biden, with a claim that the president used a green screen in an interaction with the press circulating online Wednesday.

Biden briefly met with reporters on Tuesday as he was leaving the White House for a visit to Chester, Pennsylvania, where he confirmed he does not have plans to travel to the southern border amid a surge of migration from Mexico.

Before Biden made his way toward Marine One on the South Lawn, heading out to promote his $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill, he was asked about the situation at the U.S. border with Mexico.

When one of the journalists asked, “Do you have any plans to travel to the southern border?” Biden replied, “Not at the moment.”

The president briefly addresses reporters in the clip, but his appearance has prompted many to question if video special effects were involved.

A different video from The Washington Post shows Biden’s same statement to the press from a different angle. Here the gray microphone is clearly some distance to the left of the president.

Pictures added to Getty also show a number of angles of the exchange, with nothing out of the ordinary.

In fact, the claim that a green screen was used is not compatible with how green screens work, as CGI images are added behind the individual, not in front as the first angle appears to show.

The Ruling

False.

Joe Biden was not filmed in front of a green screen.
