Did Joe Biden Play ‘F*** tha Police’ at a Campaign Event?

A viral video on Twitter shows Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden saying he has “one thing to say” before playing a song titled “F*** tha Police:”


The video was even shared twice by President Donald Trump. 


The video is, in fact, an edited clip from Biden’s Kissimmee, Florida, event, during which he played the song “Despacito,” a popular Spanish pop song, a move which prompted criticisms of pandering to Latino voters.
