Conspiracy theorists question validity of White House photo because of clocks

As the Taliban regain control of Afghanistan, some right-wing Twitter users have found something much less important to focus on: White House clocks.

On Sunday, the official White House Twitter account shared an image of US President Joe Biden meeting with his national security team and senior officials during a video call, discussing the current situation in Afghanistan. However, some conservative skeptics doubt the photo’s validity, specifically citing world clocks as “evidence.”

The digital clocks shown in the photo show London time at 4:29 p.m. and Moscow time at 7:29 p.m., which would indicate that there is a three-hour time difference between the two cities when the real the current difference is only two. Like clockwork (no pun intended), “Moscow” and “London” were all the rage on Twitter, as conspiracy theorists assumed the photo must be a fake.

“Ummmm either their clocks are fake (questionable) or it’s an old photo just recycled and not even from this weekend. There are currently only 2 hours between London and Moscow. What’s really going on. A Twitter user asked.

Others claim it’s actually a photo taken earlier this year.

Kyle Becker, a former Fox News producer who has appeared on Newsmax and OANN, also took to Twitter to voice his grievances with the clocks.

“Either the Camp David clocks are fake or the photos are from before March 28, when London switched to daylight saving time, but Moscow did not. Its good.*”

Charlie Spiering of Breitbart also questioned the clocks, saying the White House “does not answer questions about tits”.

Several variations on the theories disseminated on the social platform.

Others found the outrageous clock conspiracy amusing, assuming the clock incident was just a staff oversight.

However, many logically assume that the clocks are set to military time, which would explain the “imprecise” three-hour time difference. According to military time zones, Moscow is GMT (Universal Time) plus three hours.

Mystery solved. Sorry, everything.
