Fact Check: Elon Musk Did NOT Reveal That Joe Biden Is Sick No Mention

Did a Facebook video reveal that Elon Musk leaked information that proves President Joe Biden is "mortally sick"? No, that's not true: This video has a clickbait title and does not say Musk has inside information that Biden is ill. There are also no news articles about Musk revealing information about Biden's health.

The claim appeared on Facebook on December 15, 2022, with the caption, "Elon Musk JUST LEAKED Joe Biden is Mortally Sick!" The video opened:

Elon Musk, a famous man. His company Tesla is a manufacturer of very popular electric cars, not only in the USA, but also around the world.

This is what the post looked like on Facebook at the time of writing:

The 9-minute-plus-long Facebook video does not mention what Musk knows about Biden or where and how Musk leaked said information. A Google News search of the phrase "Elon Musk leaks that Joe Biden is mortally ill" produced no results.
