President Joe Biden returned from his trip to Israel on Wednesday night, but his appearance and speech aboard Air Force One sparked a wave of criticism and speculation online.
According to a report by Ok Magazine on Thursday, October 19, 2023, a one-minute snippet of the video was posted on X, the former name for Twitter. Where people expressed their opinions about Biden’s mannerisms and a peculiar imprint on his chin that had them scratching their heads.
The video, which was posted by a reporter from The Associated Press, showed Biden walking around the cabin of the presidential plane, greeting and chatting with journalists.
However, his speech was slurred and mumbled, and he seemed to struggle to form coherent sentences.
At one point, he said, “I got it done on humanitarian aid to Gaza,” referring to his efforts to broker a deal with Egypt and Israel to ease the suffering of Palestinian civilians.
He then added, “And by the way, guess what? They’re not going to stop us from flying F-35s over there.”
It was unclear what he meant by that statement, or how it was related to the humanitarian aid.
Many X users also noticed a bizarre feature on Biden’s chin: a deep crease that looked like a dent or a scar.
Some wondered if it was a sign of a mask or a prosthetic falling off, while others suggested it was a result of plastic surgery or botox.
One X user wrote, “Is Biden’s mask falling off? Look at his chin!” Another shared a screenshot of the video commenting, “This clip shows what Joe Biden looks and sounds like in a setting that is not 100% controlled and produced.
Republicans and pro-Israel groups for not being more vocal in condemning Hamas’ rocket attacks on Israeli cities, which have killed many people and injured hundreds more.
Moreover, he had to cancel his planned stops in Jordan and Egypt after Hamas accused Israel of bombing a hospital in Gaza that killed hundreds of people, including many children.
Israel denied involvement in the hospital airstrike and said it was caused by a misfired rocket from “terrorists in Gaza”.
Biden is expected to address the nation about his trip to Israel and his vision for the Middle East peace process.
He will also face questions from reporters about his health and fitness for office, as well as his controversial appearance aboard Air Force One
