Georgia Republican congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene posted a video on Twitter on Friday of US President Joe Biden giving a speech - but with a deepfake of Adolf Hitler's face.
The deepfake video also includes swastikas that were edited into the background.
What we all saw tonight from Biden.I guess when President Butterbeans is frail, weak, and dementia ridden, the Hitler imagery was their attempt to make him look “tough” while he declares war on half of America as enemies of the state.Or it’s real..pic.twitter.com/rk9vrt7ZK5— Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (@RepMTG) September 2, 2022
Anti-Defamation League Midwest Board Member Bradley Dlatt tweeted in response that Greene "should be expelled from Congress for this. Co-opting the imagery of a regime that murdered millions of Jews and other minorities is dangerous, highly offensive, ignorant, and wrong. This should be the end for MTG's career."
What did Biden say in his speech?
Biden condemned "Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans", calling their "extremism" a threat to democracy in a speech on Thursday night, which Republicans have criticized as divisive.
In response to the speech, Marjorie Taylor Greene said that "Joe Biden just declared all of us enemies of the state. Biden is a danger to us all. Joe Biden MUST BE IMPEACHED!!"
Greene followed up by tweeting that "Joe Biden is Hitler," while also writing "#NaziJoe has to go."
This is not the first time that Greene has called for Biden's impeachment on social media. Last year, she introduced a bill against Biden for "for abuse of power by enabling bribery and other high crimes and misdemeanors."
Trump supporters don't threaten US, violence does, Biden says
Asked by a reporter at the White House on Friday whether he was referring to all Trump supporters, Biden said, "I don't consider any Trump supporter to be a threat to the country."

He added "I do think anyone who calls for the use of violence, who fails to condemn violence when it's used, and refuses to acknowledge that an election has been won, insists on changing the way in which the rules, you count the votes, that is a threat to democracy."
Trump voters "weren't voting for attacking the capitol," Biden said. "They weren't voting for overruling elections."
