Boris Johnson Accused Of Pretending To Go For A Jog In Resurfaced Footage

Boris Johnson Accused Of Pretending To Go For A Jog In Resurfaced Footage

People are going in on Boris Johnson for allegedly staging it to look like he'd been on a quick run.

People are going in on Boris Johnson for allegedly staging it to look like he'd been on a quick run in a resurfaced viral video. Catch the clip here:

The Prime Minister has previously come under fire for throwing parties in lockdown, but now it seems as if he can't even go on a jog without getting roasted online.

However, whether what he actually went on could be classified as a jog has been put up for debate.

Either way, Johnson has become the subject of online ridicule yet again after a Twitter user posted a resurfaced clip showing the PM dressed in trainers and sports gear.

However, his attire may not be all it seems.

The footage appears to show Johnson getting a cheeky lift to a few metres away from his hotel - The Midland in Manchester - before proceeding to get out the car and jog the last few seconds into the doorway, waving to reporters as he goes.

The user, @LouisHenwood, has accused Johnson's 'jog' of being fake, with him writing: "Is there anything he does that is not a great fat deception or lie. Jog on Boris Johnson."

The user later alleged in the comments that 'Boris Johnson does not like actual jogging'.

"It's like being seen in a hard hat, it's simply an image that he knows creates a media impression that he just like 'one of us'," Louis continued.

The video has amassed over one million views, 7,000 likes and hundreds of comments, with fellow Twitter users having rained in a mixture of amusement but also outrage over the Prime Minister's supposed jog.

"Is this the world's shortest ever run?," one questioned.

"So he can't run but he can hide," another user said while another wrote: "This is just madness now, the man is just all smoke and mirrors, we can’t be lead by this."

"Just when you think you couldn't hate him anymore," a fourth commented.

Another said: "Does anyone know if the photos got published? And what slogan was on his sweat drenched T shirt?"

Louis replied: "His shirt wasn't sweat-drenched and had the slogan Build back better."

"He could at least have circled the car," a final joked.

To be fair to the Prime Minister, who actually likes running? Particularly in rainy Manchester, where the clip is reported as having been filmed.

However, Louis later resolved: "It's from October 2021, but it is not as if he has changed since then."
