The following are some of the most popular but completely untrue stories and visuals of the week. None of these are legit, even though they were shared widely on social media. The Associated Press checked them out. Here are the facts:
False claims target Bible used for Biden’s presidential inauguration
CLAIM: President Joe Biden swore on a “Masonic/Illuminati” Bible during his inauguration last week.
THE FACTS: Following Biden’s inauguration, false social media posts spread about the Bible he used to take his oath of office.
No, Joe Biden did not instruct ICE to release all detained immigrants
Some social media users falsely suggested that the several-inches thick Bible, a Biden family heirloom, was “Masonic” or associated with an Illuminati conspiracy. Conspiracy theorists suggest the Illuminati, a purported secret society, wants world domination.
Freemasons, a fraternal organization, have been the subject of conspiracy theories since the group was founded over 300 years ago. Some founding fathers were even part of the group. “Sooo has anyone else realized this yet or???? Masonic/Illuminati Bible that Biden swore on yesterday…” wrote one Facebook user along with a photo of Biden’s hand on the Bible. The false post had 19,000 shares.
