An AI-generated clip that shows former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton endorsing Florida Governor Ron DeSantis for the presidency has been shared on social media as if it is authentic. There is no evidence Clinton ever made such an endorsement.

Clinton can partly be heard saying the following in the clip (here), “You know, people might be surprised to hear me saying this, but I actually like Ron DeSantis a lot. Yeah, I know. I’d say he’s just the kind of guy this country needs, and I really mean that. If Ron DeSantis got installed as president, I’d be fine with that.”


Synthetic media. The video is AI-generated, and there is no evidence Clinton endorsed Ron DeSantis for the presidency.
