A 22-second video of US President Joe Biden and Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett at a press conference in the White House has been shared thousands of times on Facebook alongside claims that it shows Biden nodding off. But the claim is misleading: the actual footage is 13 minutes long and shows the two leaders discussing political issues. In the full video, Biden can be seen moving his fingers and responding to Bennett immediately after where the clip claims he fell asleep.
