Claim : Irish Parliament Shut Its Doors In Joe Biden’s Face!

Truth : Irish Parliament Did Not Deny Entry To Joe Biden!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by right wing activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Viral TikTok Video Was Edited

The viral TikTok video was edited from the original footage, in order to make Joe Biden look confused as the two doormen closed the doors in his face.

The TikTok video is only 10 seconds, while the original footage is several minutes long. Crucially, the TikTok video crops out critical parts of the frame, to convey a different narrative.

Fact #2 : Joe Biden Was With Irish Parliament Speakers

The original footage shows President Joe Biden arriving at Leinster House in Dublin, where the Irish Parliament seats. He is met by Seán Ó Fearghaíl, speaker of Irish parliament’s lower chamber, and Jerry Buttimer, speaker of Irish parliament’s upper chamber.

If the Irish Parliament did not want Joe Biden to come, they would not have waited for him to arrive, never mind escort him in!

Fact #3 : Joe Biden Was Not “Confused”

In the original footage, the three men walked up the stairs, stopping for photo opportunities along the way.

Joe Biden can be seen chatting and laughing with them. He appeared to be engaged with both men, and not “confused” as many are claiming.

Fact #4 : The Doors Were Temporarily Closed For A Photoshoot

At around 30 seconds of our comparison video above, you can see a lady on the left gesturing to the doormen to shut the door.

The viral TikTok video crucially edited out that lady, making it look like the doormen closed the doors in Joe Biden’s face to deny him entry.

Then the TikTok video ends the video, just as the same lady gestures to the three men to arrange themselves for another photoshoot.

After letting photographers take their shots, the doormen reopened the doors. President Joe Biden is then seen shaking the hands of both speakers of the Irish Parliament, before they head inside.

Fact #4 : This Is Just Fake News About Joe Biden

This is just another example of political fake news created to smear Joe Biden, and here are other examples you may have seen on social media:
