President Trump appeared to make fun of Joe Biden on Thursday by tweeting a tampered video of the former vice president, who was dealing with a series of allegations of misconduct against him.
The tweet arrived just hours after his son, Donald Trump Jr., retweeted a simulated 15-second excerpt from Biden, which featured an image of the former vice president lurking at the Background, finally putting his hands on his own shoulders the back of his head. The image used for the fake Biden comes from the viral photo of him placing his hands on the shoulders of Stephanie Carter, the wife of former US Secretary of Defense, Ash Carter.
Trump subtitled the tweet "WELCOME BACK JOE!"
Biden's and Carter's photographs have been found in the public eye as a result of recent statements about Biden's inappropriate behavior towards women. Carter wrote an article on Medium, defending Biden, saying the photos were "misleading."
