Verdict: False

The video is edited.

Fact Check:

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy visited President Joe Biden at the White House recently, according to NBC News. Biden warned of further aggression from Russia if they are victorious in Ukraine, but Republicans want “tougher border policies” before agreeing to send more aid to Ukraine.

The Instagram post purports White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was interrupted while on “The View.” The video appears to show a clip from the show in which Jean-Pierre is engaged in an argument with an individual while on the ABC talk show.

The caption reads, “Enjoyed having a little talk with Biden’s press secretary, but I don’t think she enjoyed it.”

The claim is inaccurate. The video was edited to include this guest’s argument with the White House Press secretary. The original clip shows Karine Jean-Pierre on a Dec. 5 appearance on the show without the individual.

The other individual is social media user Damon Imani. Imani edited the original clip to include himself in the interview. Imani has edited himself into several interviews with government officials and talk show hosts. (RELATED: Video Of Pakistani Air Force Is Old)

This is not the first time Imani’s videos have been shared online as authentic. Check Your Fact debunked a claim that Imani shouted expletives at Jake Tapper on CNN.
