Short video, filmed at a Trump rally, on two major disinfo trends: the Joe Biden earpiece, and Q.

The "smoking gun" video - flagged false by factcheckers - "shared more than 22,000 times and viewed 800,000 times by Thursday night... one of the most widespread false narratives his team had handled this year"... another video "still live Thursday night with more than 48,000 views and no fact-check... on Twitter, one version alone had 4 million views by Thursday night."

Youtube labels searches, not videos, so videos sent by friends arrive without fact-checks.
