So of course it didn’t go over well and once again, just like with Hillary Clinton’s use of “deplorables,” it’s now become a tagline of many social media profiles on the right. Donald Trump even turned Biden’s calling him the “MAGA King” back on him.
Biden — in his nasty way — generally won’t even call President Donald Trump by his name when he refers to Trump. You may have picked up on this, he refers to him as “the former guy” or some other similar term. The “former guy” is the leftist term for disparaging Trump. That’s where we’re at now with Biden — it’s juvenile. He’s also reportedly been throwing tantrums that his approval numbers are lower than Trump’s at the same point– and that they’re ‘worse than Carter numbers’ now.
Biden has passed on that lack of grace to his aides, including his Deputy Press Secretary, Andrew Bates. Bates seemed to think his boss falling over is the time to deflect by attacking Trump. This is what he is doing, rather than updating us on how Biden is. This is childish.

Basic comms 101: when your boss does something embarrassing like fall off a bike, don’t make it worse by doing this. https://t.co/sFlHuDS36w

I’ve never seen Trump with $6/gal gas, 9% inflation, fumble 2 wars in a season, or call VP and First Lady President (multiple times) either… guess there’s a lot Biden can do Trump hasn’t done. https://t.co/ELBZmpsrjC

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ press secretary Christina Pushaw:
The White House has the biggest communications team & budget of any government office in the country; it’s many times bigger than ours. And… Theoretically, every Democrat comms person wants to work there, so they have their pick of the best staff in the country. The result: 🤦♀️ https://t.co/TuqUd9zlid
