A viral video is making the rounds online after Joe Biden’s face was perfectly timed on the screen as an Action News TV correspondent reported on a 71-year-old man who inappropriately touched a 12-year-old girl at the Walmart in West Mifflin on Sunday.
WTAE Channel 4 news team accidentally showed Joe Biden’s face while reporting for an alleged child predator.
The news team immediately switched the camera to another anchor who looked totally shocked and baffled.
Washington Examiner reported:
A viral clip showed a poorly timed graphic of President Joe Biden appearing at the same time a Pittsburgh-area news anchor began reporting about an elderly man accused of inappropriately touching a 12-year-old girl.
The mishap happened in a flash, as the WTAE Channel 4 news team transitioned from a story about a robbery at a Giant store in Eagle Squirrel Hill.
As the camera shot shifted from b-roll at the grocery store to a desk anchor, a graphic appeared in the top-left corner advertising Biden’s State of the Union address set to take place Tuesday evening. But what the anchor reported was not about the president.
“A 71-year-old man was accused of inappropriately touching a 12-year-old girl at the Walmart in West Mifflin Sunday afternoon,” she said. Toward the end of those remarks, a split-second camera angle change showed what appeared to be a troubled-looking colleague before it returned to the anchor sans the Biden graphic.
A clip was posted to social media, which led to a round of jests and mockery at Biden’s expense.
This is nothing new for those paying attention.
