Picture from meme about Biden family foreign dealings in Ukraine posted to Instagram by Sebastian Gorka gets Fact-Checked: After America First radio host Sebastian Gorka posted a picture to Instagram of Joe Biden and his son Hunter, which originated from a widely circulated meme about the Biden family foreign dealings in Ukraine, it garnered a fact-check from Facebook's trusty fact-checkers. The picture contained none of the text from the meme, which reads: "Did you know that Donald Trump Jr. was named a director to Ukraine's largest private gas producer following a Ukrainian visit by President Trump? Trump later threatened to withhold $1 BILLION in US aid to Ukraine if they didn't fire a prosecutor looking into Don Jr's company. JUST KIDDING! THAT WAS JOE BIDEN WHEN HE WAS VP, AND HIS SON HUNTER BIDEN." According to PolitiFact's fact-check, "We found no evidence to support the idea that Joe Biden advocated with his son's interests in mind, as the message suggests. It's not even clear that the company was actively under investigation or that a change in prosecutors benefited it." Fact-checked content is automatically deranked, suppressing its exposure on social media platforms.
