Fact Check: Image Does NOT Show Joe Biden In Sexually Suggestive Pictures With A Girl -- Man Pictured Is Someone Else Old Porn Video

Does footage exist that shows President Joe Biden possibly naked with a girl? No, that's not true: The image shown in the social media post is not of Biden. Instead, it is a screenshot from a video that has appeared on pornographic websites under various titles since at least 2015.

The claim appeared in a post on X, formerly Twitter, by VAL THOR on May 14, 2024, titled "Breaking News." The post's caption said:

ALERT🚨TUCKER RELEASED NEW TAPES FROM J.EP$TEIN DATABASE!

J.BIDEN IS HAVING A GOOD TIME WITH LITTLE GIRL.

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

The post

The image in the social media post is a cropped screenshot that Lead Stories found linked to a video on multiple porn sites under various titles, some of which were posted online as early as 2015. Clicking this link takes readers to a Google Lens search with explicit images and adult material. A search on TinEye, another reverse image website, produced similar results, linking the image from the post on X to porn videos.

Lead Stories stacked two images below to show where the alleged image of Biden originally came from. The first picture comes from the post on X that's the subject of this fact check. The second photo shows a screenshot from one of the videos, which includes the same scene the image was cropped from:

While the grainy images make it difficult to tell who the man is precisely, clarity comes from the video itself. Nearly 40 seconds into a video on the ThisVid website, the man in question looks at the camera, clearly showing he's not Biden. The following link (archived here) includes explicit images and adult material.
