Crease in Biden’s shirt sparked a conspiracy theory

Crease in Biden's shirt sparked a conspiracy theory 1

 

Prior to the first Presidential debate, a baseless conspiracy theory inundated many Americans. The Trump campaign, Fox News, and a slew of Trump-supporting Facebook pages all fueled speculation that Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden might wear a secret earpiece to assist him in his debate against President Trump.
"I thought Biden had somebody in his ear," said one Trump supporter the morning after the first presidential debate. Her belief was shored up, she said, by video she had viewed of Biden supposedly adjusting a wire during the debate.
In fact, the video does not show Biden wearing a wire; it shows a crease briefly forming on Biden's shirt after he reached into his coat to itch his shoulder. But when false evidence emerged to support the baseless earpiece claim, it took off like wildfire.
CNN's Donie O'Sullivan traveled to a Trump rally in Duluth, Minnesota, and asked some of the president's supporters what they thought about the debunked video.

  8. CNN: “crease in biden’s shirt sparked a conspiracy theory.”
    a four-year russian conspiracy theory that costed millions of dollars to investigate, sparked by nothing – not even a crease in a shirt.

    • @Sypher Fact check: he wasn’t impeached

    • costed……..

  9. There are people in the comments saying how “it also appeared in his collar” and “you couldn’t see his ear”. It’s really easy to hide a cord from one’s ear, like really easy, and you wouldn’t run it down a person’s front, and especially to their wrist collar. (As some people thought for some reason?) Unless he was trying to make it really obvious he had one by running wire in all weird parts of his clothing, I seriously doubt he had an earpiece on. Sometimes common sense isn’t very common.

  10. People get mad when you contradict their daddy 🤣

  11. I haven’t laughed so hard in a long time as when that woman said “they shouldn’t be fact checking anything, they should allow people to have a voice”

  12. “they shouldnt fact check anything they should let us have a voice” why so you can continue to live in a fantasy world?

    If it was a crease it’s funny how once it was noticed Biden magically knew and tucked it in. Also he clearly had a flesh colored plug in his right ear.

  14. Imagine if Q turned out to be a bunch of smart teenagers trolling them all. 😂😂
