Anatomy of a Lie: How the Trump Campaign Edited Video of Biden to Create a Fake Gaffe

Trump wants Fox News to stop showing Obama being mean to him, and focus instead on deceptively edited clips of Biden.

DONALD TRUMP WHINED about Fox News on Tuesday, telling reporters that the channel he relies on to brainwash voters should give less air time to former President Barack Obama ridiculing him and more to misleading videos of former Vice President Joe Biden, edited to make him look old and unfit for office.

“I only saw he was on Fox,” the president replied when asked what he thought of Obama skewering him during a drive-in rally in support of Biden in Orlando. “Fox puts him on all the time,” Trump lamented. “Fox is very disappointing.”

Trump clearly watched more of the speech than he let on, because 21 minutes into Obama’s remarks — shortly after the former president told the current one, “tweeting at the TV doesn’t fix things; watching TV all day doesn’t fix things” — he tweeted his dismay that Fox was showing it.
