The real video features Justin Bieber’s remix of “Despacito.”

The originator of the term “fake news” is yet again spreading misinformation. On Wednesday, Donald Trump reposted an edited video that shows Joe Biden playing N.W.A.’s 1988 hit “Fuck tha Police.”

“What is this all about?” Trump wrote on Twitter. The tweet has been retweeted over 45,000 times. The edited video–which Twitter has now labeled “manipulated media,”–was posted by an account called The United Spot, which claims to be shadow-banned on Twitter. The site’s YouTube channel posts political parody/satire videos, and has garnered nearly 40 million total views.


“This country needs to laugh more and smile often,” the channel’s About section reads. “Our main goal is to make you laugh, we just want to bring a smile to your face. Don’t take life so seriously, sometimes we just need to take a moment and laugh instead of being so serious all the time. Life is so short and we only get one try.”

The original video is comical enough as is. In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, Biden stopped in Kissimmee, Florida for a campaign event. He invited Eva Longoria, Ricky Martin, and Luis Fonsi. After Fonsi introduced Biden, the Democratic nominee held his phone to the microphone and played Fonsi’s 2017 hit “Despacito.”


“I’ll tell you what,” Biden said, “if I had the talent of any one of these people, I’d be elected president by acclamation.”

“Does Joe Biden realize that Despacito means “slowly”?” Donald Trump campaign senior adviser Mercedes Schlapp.”Fits well with Slow Joe.”
