Claim: Joe Biden’s tweet mocking Indian Media.

Fact: The tweet is made from the fan page (parody) account of US President-elect Joe Biden. Joe Biden hasn’t commented on Narendra Modi or Indian Media in any of his social media handles recently. Hence, the claim made in the post is FALSE.

On searching for the tweet in the post on the official Twitter account of Joe Biden, we couldn’t find any such tweet. Joe Biden hasn’t made any comments on Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Indian media in the recent past after getting the required majority to be the 46th US President. On observing carefully, it is found that the user id (@CrypticMiind) visible on the tweet shared in the post is different from the user id (@JoeBiden) of Joe Biden’s official Twitter handle. The account which posted this tweet was suspended temporarily by Twitter.

To sum it up, this tweet about Indian Media is posted from a fan page(parody) account of Joe Biden.
