Trump shares bizarre video mocking Joe Biden after Obama endorses former vice president 1

Donald Trump shared a doctored video “starring” Barack Obama, in an edited reel that alleges the presumptive Democratic nominee for president, Joe Biden, ‘loves kids’.

Mr Trump posted the parody video, which superimposed the head of Mr Obama upon the shoulders of one of four black men watching a sports game before an ad interruption, on his Twitter feed.

With a mock Biden 2020 logo and strapline that together reads ‘Biden loves kids’, the 27-second long video appeared to have taken a comment made by Biden about his days working in a public pool and twisted it to make unsubstantiated claims about the former vice president.


“The kid used to come up and reach in the pool and rub my leg down so it was straight and watched the hair come back up again”, says Mr Biden in the video.

The comments attributed to Mr Biden on Monday appeared to be taken from a 2017 event at which the Democrat described children rubbing his hairy legs that “turned blonde in the sun” whilst he worked security at the Wilmington pool, also saying at the time that he had faced off with a local gang leader called ‘CornPop’.

Mr Biden’s comments were later derided in late 2019, when some questioned his retelling of the encounter with ‘CornPop’ who supposedly headed a Delaware gang.

The Trump campaign’s video comes as Mr Biden’s campaign has been forced to issue a denial in the past week that he sexually assaulted Tara Reade while she was employed at Mr Biden’s Senate office in 1993.

Mr Trump previously used claims against Mr Biden’s past behaviour in a parody shared on Twitter at the beginning of April. In that edited video, the Democrat says “I shake hands, I hug people, I grab men and women by the shoulders and say, ‘you can do this’.”

Democrats have publicly discussed allegations against Mr Biden in recent days, with Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar telling NPR that “all women in these cases have the right to be heard and have their claims thoroughly reviewed”.

Both the Biden 2020 campaign and Trump 2020 campaigns have been contacted for comment by The Independent.
