DeSantis Adds Fake Military Flyover to Campaign Video

Axios reports:

The super PAC supporting Ron DeSantis’ presidential campaign altered footage to include the sound and sight of fighter jets flying over the Florida governor in its video promoting his campaign launch.

The video by Never Back Down, called “A President for the People,” includes a scene with DeSantis raising his arm to the sky in front of a U.S. flag while jets appear above him, whooshing by.

But video of DeSantis’ speech on Nov. 5, 2022, in Port St. Lucie indicates there wasn’t a military flyover or jet sounds during the event. It’s the latest instance of political ads including digitally altered videos to promote or attack candidates, making it difficult for viewers to discern what’s real.
