The official account of “The Daily Show” tweeted a meme during the State of the Union address that mocked President Joe Biden for being low energy, but deleted it soon after.
Biden went through the typical laundry list of items for his first State of the Union speech Tuesday, but the Daily Show account offered a critique that it regretted.
While it was deleted later, screenshots were circulated on social media: Hey @TheDailyShow, why did you delete this?pic.twitter.com/VlTp0rBQK5 — Jewish Patriot ud83dude9b (@Jewish Patriot ud83dude9b) 1646192332 The meme showed the graphic of an iPhone battery out of power and needing to be plugged in to recharge.
The account offered no rationale for why it deleted the tweet, but it suspiciously hearkened to the nickname that former President Donald Trump slapped Biden with during the 2020 presidential campaign: “Sleepy Joe.”
The show might have deleted the tweet based on some of the very angry responses from their followers.
“What was that deleted tweet about being ‘low battery’… how very republican rhetoric from you,” replied one user.
“WTH?? Seriously you deleted this, you must be standing with the GOP,” responded another user.
“Nice job with the battery. He actually was stronger at the end. What a jerk. I would like to see you do what he has done over the past year,” read another angry reply.”What the f***?!?! Who hacked this account?!? This is bulls***!!! @Trevornoah did you approve this?!?” read another outraged tweet , which referred to the show’s host.Others on the left were outraged at comments made by Biden during the speech where he vehemently opposed the “Defund the Police” movement and said that Democrats would help fund police while supporting criminal reform.

We Often Feel Like David Taking on Giants
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page, PayPal, or our Substack page. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
