A video shared on Facebook allegedly shows President Joe Biden standing up and leaving during a live interview with MSNBC. 

Verdict: False

The video is miscaptioned. The full video shows that Biden only stands up once the interview has concluded.

Fact Check: 

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy has announced that Republican lawmakers might consider an impeachment enquiry for Biden over unproven allegations of financial misconduct, according to AP News. McCarthy explained that the investigation would differ from an impeachment vote by being an escalated formal probe and allowing Republicans to examine the president and his family, ABC News reported.

A Facebook video claims Biden got up and left mid-interview with an MSNBC host. The video shows the host and Biden shaking hands and thanking each other before Biden stands up to leave.

“Biden just gets up and leaves during a live TV interview,” the caption reads.

This video is miscaptioned, however. The full interview with MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace can be seen on YouTube, It shows that Biden gets up to leave around the 19:23 timestamp, at the end of the interview. 

A tweet shows a longer version of the video which includes the Wallace announcing a commercial break. (RELATED: No, Joe Biden Did Not Fall Asleep During A Meeting With Israeli President)
