NOT REAL NEWS: Debunking fake stories about coronavirus, Joe Biden, Kim Jong Un and more

Photo shows Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden kissing a young girl's cheek.

The photo is being misrepresented. The man in the photo is Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador. Posts circulating on social media are using an image of López Obrador kissing a young girl in an effort to cast Biden in a negative light. "Ladies and Gentlemen Let me introduce the Democratic Leader for the Presidency of the United States of America!!! Joe Biden!!!," one Facebook post falsely claimed. The miscaptioned photo had over 9,000 shares. "Hey Liberals, is this normal behavior? @joebiden #sundayvibes #SundayThoughts," was the comment on a tweet. The image was taken from a video López Obrador tweeted on March 14. At the time, the Mexican president ignored social distancing rules and continued to engage in affectionate physical greetings. According to AP reporting, López Obrador met with crowds, where he shook hands with people and kissed cheeks. He was criticized for holding large rallies while dozens of coronavirus cases were confirmed in Mexico. In recent months, Biden has received scrutiny over his interactions with women. Over the years, Biden was shown on camera hugging or whispering to women at high-profile events. He's defended his actions, saying he doesn't believe he's acted inappropriately with women.
