Twitter Labels Biden Video Retweeted by Trump as 'Manipulated,' As Though It Weren't Completely F***ing Obvious

I’ve been avoiding Trump a bit this week, mostly because what’s the point in cataloging every horrible and horrifying thing he does? Will it change any minds? All it seems to do is put us all in a terrible goddamn mood. But sometimes the Presidential Ignoramus does something so profoundly stupid that it’s worth commenting upon, if only so that we can all share a collective eye roll.

This morning, Donald Trump retweeted a video that has since been labeled as “manipulated media” by Twitter. It’s Joe Biden jamming to N.W.A.’s “F**k the Police.”

I mean, honestly: Not even Trump’s delusional supporters believe that Joe goddamn Biden would get up in front of a mic and play N.W.A. Joe Biden is not that cool. Also, why would China care? Why would China be drooling over this? Why would China be excited that Joe Biden enjoys N.W.A.?

For the record, what Biden actually played was ‘Despacito,’ and honestly, this video is embarrassing enough on its own that no one had to manipulate it.

On the other hand, I’m glad that Twitter labeled it, but it was hardly necessary. No one believes the N.W.A. video is real. Likewise, the only reason why anyone might believe that this video is real is because Twitter did not label it as manipulated. Biden may be woefully out of touch, but at least he isn’t this profoundly dumb:

I’ll take out-of-touch old guy over the old guy who is detached from reality any day.
