A recent Facebook post makes it look as if New York Attorney General Letitia James is criticizing her party’s leader: President Joe Biden.
“LETITIA JAMES: I believe this president is an embarrassment to all that we stand for,” the Oct. 30 post says.
In the post’s video, James says, “I will never be afraid to challenge this illegitimate president” and “I believe that this president is incompetent” as clips of Biden appear.
This post was flagged as part of Meta’s efforts to combat false news and misinformation on its News Feed. (Read more about our partnership with Meta, which owns Facebook and Instagram.)
The video footage of James is authentic, but she was talking about then-President Donald Trump, not Biden. The clip comes from a 2018 video James made when she was campaigning to become New York’s attorney general.
We rate claims that the video shows James criticizing Biden False.
