The Claim

Following the press conference about the recent aerial objects seen over the U.S, President Joe Biden was overheard saying “they’ll buy anything.” 

Emerging story

A 20-second video went viral claiming it shows Joe Biden after the press conference about the recent aerial objects spotted over the U.S. According to the users, Biden was “caught on a hot mic” after commenting on 3 UFOs shot down and said: “They’ll buy anything.”

The Video of Biden Was Edited

Misbar’s team examined the original press conference version, and there was no such conversation. It turned out that the circulating video was digitally manipulated to combine clips from the original White House video adding the altered audio of the alleged conversation.

The United States’ Response to UFOs

On February 16, President Joe Biden held a press conference to deliver remarks about the United States’ response to the recent unidentified aerial objects spotted over the country’s airspace.

According to Biden, the American administration was studying a series of “unidentified flying objects” shot down in recent days but that intelligence officials increasingly believe “they were benign balloons used for research or commercial purposes” and were not connected to the massive Chinese surveillance balloon that was shot down on February 4.

For the president, the U.S. could not identify the nature of the three objects, and nothing suggests that they were related to China’s spy balloon program or that they were surveillance vehicles from any other country.

Chaos at the Press Conference About UFOs

After the press conference, a group of reporters hurled questions at the president. One of the reporters could be clearly heard asking Biden if his dealings with China were compromised by his family's business relationships. Biden looked at the reporter, laughed, and said: “Give me a break, man.”

After another reporter asked Biden to respond to criticism that he overreacted to the balloon, the president commented: “You can come to my office and ask a question where we have more polite people.” 

Biden slowly walked away, stopped with his back still turned to listen to a question, then left. No other conversation could be heard at the end of the conference.
