Thousands of social media users have been sharing two pictures of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, claiming they show he is a fraud as he does not wear a mask on a plane but wears one outside. However, the photo shown of Biden not wearing a mask on a plane was taken in November 2019.
The posts link to or appear to originate from a tweet by Richard Grenell, the former US ambassador to Germany.
The photo of Biden on a plane is from an article published in Vogue on Oct. 30 about Biden’s traveling national press secretary Remi Yamamoto. The caption clearly states that the photo was taken in November 2019.
