Truth : Joe Biden Did Not Fall Asleep While Meeting Maui Fire Victims!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS about Joe Biden, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Joe Biden Was At Lahaina Community Engagement Event

First, let me start by giving you some context on what’s going on.

In early August 2023, a number of wildfires broke out on the island of Maui, in the US state of Hawaii. That culminated in a massive wildfire that devastated the town of Lahaina on August 8, 2023.

The entire town of Lahaina was destroyed, with the damage estimated at $6 billion. Even worse – at least 114 people were confirmed killed in and around Lahaina, as of August 22.

On August 21, President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden arrived at Kahului Airport to visit the disaster sites. One of the stops was the Lahaina Civic Center, where President Biden met residents and gave a speech.

Fact #2 : Joe Biden Was Not Asleep

The viral video shows President Joe Biden sitting down, and nodding off, during that community engagement event at the Lahaina Civic Center.

The truth is – Joe Biden wasn’t nodding off. He was bowing his head, possibly in prayer. The viral video was edited to show him “nodding off”, and posted in low-resolution, so you can’t see that he actually had his eyes open.

In the higher resolution video posted by C-SPAN, you can see Joe Biden looking at the speaker, and cough, before bowing his head, and then nodding in agreement with the speaker. You can also see that his eyes were open even though his head remained bowed.

Joe Biden then looked up when the speaker spoke about the homes of his son, his daughter, and his parents, burning down. He then clapped with everyone else when the speaker said that “Lahaina is a town not for sale”.

Fact #3 : White House Confirmed It’s Fake News

When the Biden Administration was asked about the viral video, White House spokesperson Andrew Bates replied:

It’s unfortunate they feel the need to lie. Instead, they should join him in supporting the people of Maui.

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

This is just ultimately just another example of political fake news to smear Joe Biden, and here are other examples:
