President Biden is using a fake White House set for some events, such as promoting his recent Covid booster shot.
The president has been mocked for using a fake set, with social media users posting pictures of extensive shots showing the fake-White House set.
The set features featured windows that seem to be projected images of the Rose Garden – in full bloom in October – to give the truth.

Why fake White House set?
Fox News and other outlets confirm that there is a White House outside the White House. The set is actually located in the executive office building, which is used for the staff of the executive branch.
According to Fox: “Biden used the video set from the White House in the south court auditorium of the Eisenhower executive office building for video conferencing and online broadcast events.”

For the use of the fake White House, “the set, which includes a small seating area for members of the press and others present at events, also hosts virtual meetings for Biden and other members of his administration.”
Also, Biden uses the White House, the only person in his administration: “In addition to Biden, ambassadors to the United Nations Linda Thomas-Greenfield, Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen have been photographed with the President for the ceremony. ”
The question is, why?
Incredibly, Politifact did a fact-check that said the fake White House set wasn’t just made for Biden’s booster shot event-it was used before it happened.
But nowhere in the Politifact article can you find an explanation for why this set exists.
Luckily, Newsweek did some digging and gave an explanation for the set.
It’s big, and there’s room for reporters: “Martha Kumar, director of the White House Transition Project, explains that this room in the Eisenhower Executive Office building is being used more regularly because it’s more accessible.”
Another Washington insider told Newsweek that it was all about “optics”.
Josh King, the former event director at the White House, explained that the use of the new region has come down to “poliooptics”.
“Washington has an element of theater and stagecraft every week, with one or the other party working to take full advantage of visual storytelling,” King told Washington.
Newsweek is waiting for an official response from the White House.
Yet, conservatives see something strange about the whole situation.
Jack Posobiek, Senior Editor, Human Events Feedback Describing the films simply as “Truman Show Presidency”, Jim Carrey is a reference to the movie where the protagonist spends his entire life on a huge set with the actors.

The media doesn’t seem curious at all
With the exception of a Fox News article, Newsweek, and social media conservative rumors, the fake White House did not get much media coverage.
Bottom line – yes, the Biden administration has a fake White House set. No, they didn’t make it just for Biden’s booster event.
But why, though? Just fit more journalists in one room? The Oval Office, located in the actual White House, hosted numerous media events.

President Biden (OTPOTUS) October 6, 2021
Just last year, multiple mainstream outlets verified a social media fake information that accused then-President Trump of filming a video in front of a green screen.
The Washington Post, Forbes and Newsweek all verified the rumor and finally announced that he did not use the green screen.
But the reality is, they still have time to cover it.
Why don’t they check Biden at the same level?
