A White House video of President Joe Biden appearing to surprise Vice President Kamala Harris on her birthday has been mocked by skeptics.
In the 30-second clip, which Biden tweeted Wednesday, Harris’ 57th birthday, the president is seen arriving at his deputy’s office in the Naval Observatory with flowers and a framed photo.
They are so authentic and real! pic.twitter.com/rMZxu4qrDR

Harris, who was sitting at her desk, stood up as though surprised, donned a face mask to match Biden’s and exclaimed, “Really? Oh, Joe!”
- But critics suspected they were watching yet another stage-managed White House production.
- “This isn’t staged or anything,” quipped conservative activist Brigitte Gabriel.
Also Wednesday, Harris was seen shouting, “Surprise!” at her own birthday celebration.
