Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Checkyourfact.com: “FACT CHECK: Is This Image Of A Blurred Presidential Seal Proof That Biden Is Not The President?”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

An image shared on Instagram claims a picture of President Joe Biden at a desk with a blurred presidential seal is proof he is not the president.

The seal was blurred due to a federal statute that states the presidential seal can not be used by non-government entities like political parties. The blurred seal does not indicate Biden is not the president.

Biden signed a $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill into law Nov. 15, according to NPR. Since then, some social media users have shared images of Biden sitting at a desk signing the bill in which the presidential seal on the desk is notably blurred out. Some of these users have alleged the blurred seal is proof that Biden is not the real president.

“Fake white house set, Fake Biden. Blurred seal….” reads the caption of one such image shared on Instagram.  (RELATED: Is Joe Biden’s Recent 39% Approval Rating Lower Than Donald Trump’s Ever Was?)

This conclusion, however, is inaccurate. The blurred seal is due to a federal statute, U.S. Code § 713, which states that anyone who displays the seal “for the purpose of conveying, or in a manner reasonably calculated to convey, a false impression of sponsorship or approval by the Government of the United States or by any department, agency, or instrumentality thereof, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than six months, or both.” In other words, the seal is only to be used for official government purposes and is not to be displayed in any materials distributed by political parties.
