Half robot. Half phone. All automated.
Over the weekend a certain robocall made an appearance in a humourous way, reaching thousands, though Democrats aren’t laughing.
It mimicked Biden’s voice and told people to not vote in the presidential primary for him. Doing so would “Only enable the Republicans in their quest to elect Donald Trump again.”
Libs are losing their minds when you check out
Fake Joe Biden trends saying this is a Republican stunt…it isn't!
USING COMMON SENSE…is this Joe Biden telling DEMOCRATS FOR TRUMP voters to NOT VOTE this Tuesday (1/23/2024) in NH?

CNN reports on the story:
A robocall that appears to be an AI voice resembling President Joe Biden is reaching out to New Hampshire residents, advising them against voting in Tuesday’s presidential primary and saving their vote for the November general election.
Audio of the call was reviewed by CNN from the anti-robocall application Nomorobo. Their tracking data suggests a large volume of calls. It’s unclear who is behind the call.
“Republicans have been trying to push nonpartisan and Democratic voters to participate in their primary. What a bunch of malarkey,” says the digitally altered Biden voice. “We know the value of voting Democratic when our votes count. It’s important that you save your vote for the November election. We’ll need your help in electing Democrats up and down the ticket. Voting this Tuesday only enables the Republicans in their quest to elect Donald Trump again.”
The application rates the number of calls, which were first reported by NBC News, as “severe,” among its highest rating for calls.
Nomorobo CEO Aaron Foss told CNN their data showed that 76% of the robocalls targeted New Hampshire, with 12% directed at Boston and the remaining 12% covering other areas. They estimated the number of these fraudulent calls ranged from 5,000 to 25,000.
And here’s an ironic twist…
Biden’s name will not appear on the ballot in the upcoming New Hampshire primary on Tuesday over a dispute between the state and the Democratic National Committee, which voted to move the New Hampshire primary out of its traditional first-in-the nation position. As a result, there is an organized effort to write-in Biden’s name.
His name won’t be on the ballot? That sounds a lot like reaping what you’ve sown. Haha!
I have to agree with Andrew Torba, the CEO of Gab. AI is going to make this election year very wild.
Very wild, indeed.
