Viral video in which Biden confirms the existence of aliens is a hoax

The footage, which shows what appears to be an official address by the US President, has been doing the rounds online.
The recent spate of incidents involving unidentified objects being shot down by US fighter jets has seen a surge of interest in the UFO phenomenon and the possibility of extraterrestrial visitation over the last few weeks.

Just recently, a video of US President Joe Biden emerged which seemed to confirm that these objects were indeed extraterrestrial in nature. The clip, which showed Biden giving an official statement from a podium (presumably in the White House), quickly went on to attract a lot of attention on social media.

"I am here today to inform you that a number of unidentified flying objects have appeared over many parts of our country," he said. "Though their exact origin remains to be fully determined, the FBI has informed me that it is very likely that these are visitors of extraterrestrial nature."

As it turns out, however, the video is in fact a total forgery.
For one thing, the statement itself never came from the White House. Secondly, it appears as though the footage has been doctored - possibly using AI to manipulate the image and audio.

It's the latest in a long line of "deep fake" videos which show a real person saying or doing something that they never actually said or did in real life.

It demonstrates, once again, how easy it is for footage of politicians and other public figures to be manipulated - making it harder than ever to tell what is real and what is not.

Imagine for a moment. You're flying through the cosmos, perhaps just doing research/exploration and you find a planet thriving with life. It would be like looking down on an ant hill filled with strange creatures. Creatures so far removed from what you are. Their society so juvenile, chaotic. That perhaps it might even be like looking into the past.  If brain eating aliens are real, then president potatohead is safe.

Yeah i know not really a great example but if i look at aliens in sci fi flicks most that travel the cosmos do have a more less structured culture simular to humans now some like like the ones in abyss while far more advanced did understand humans and didnt like what they saw, but those aliens i dont believe could even leave the water. How bout this, you speculate describe to me an alien race that has the tech to get here desire to check us out but yet will have zero even vauge similarities. Humans have a vast amount of life on earth thats very different to us but we do have a basic ubderstand... [More]

Ummm since COVID appeared? Stupidity we thought wasn't possible came out of the woodwork as a result of it. Notably the rioters who couldn't accept curfew.

Lol I've watched the video live when it streamed at 2pm ( more exactly 2.15pm est) and he never said extraterrestrial.  Those superficial ppl believing again to be a conspiracy should have for once attempt to get out their inner small circle and actually make contact with real life.
