(TheProudRepublic.com) – Joe Biden has sunk to a new low. Instead of tackling the severe crises sparked by his policies, he has engaged in a bizarre conversation about mental health with an X account (formerly Twitter) in the name of Sesame Street muppet character Elmo.
Check out Biden’s tweet exchange with Elmo below.
The exchange caused the president to be widely targeted with ridicule on social media.
The discussion began with Elmo inquiring about everyone’s well-being and concluded with a commitment to continue these check-ins.
“Wow! Elmo is glad he asked! Elmo learned that it is important to ask a friend how they are doing. Elmo will check in again soon, friends! Elmo loves you.”
In response, Biden filled his message with nods to “Sesame Street,” emphasizing the significance of being there for one another.
“I know how hard it is some days to sweep the clouds away and get to sunnier days,” he stated.
“Our friend Elmo is right: We have to be there for each other, offer our help to a neighbor in need, and above all else, ask for help when we need it. Even though it’s hard, you’re never alone,” the president’s account added.
This interaction, however, was met with criticism, particularly in light of recent events where three American soldiers were killed in Jordan by Iranian proxies.
Critics argued that Biden’s focus on this lighthearted exchange was inappropriate given the circumstances.
“Biden still hasn’t punished Iran for killing three American soldiers. Instead he’s tweeting about Elmo,” one critic pointed out.
“Bro we lost three service members in a terrorist attack and the president is tweeting about sesame street,” another wrote.
Stephen Miller, a former White House senior policy advisor under President Donald Trump, added to the criticism.
“Country wrapped in another foreign broader conflict with Iran, who backed proxies murdering US troops. Current President — ‘What the puppet said,’” the former White House official wrote.
Miller further criticized Biden by comparing him unfavorably to Donald Trump.
“This is worse than anything Donald Trump ever tweeted,” he added.
Observers outside the political sphere also shared their disbelief and sarcasm regarding the situation.
“Not a parody account. Really,” commentator Joe Concha wrote, expressing astonishment at the reality of the situation.
“I feel so much better now,” reacted Andrew Klavan of The Daily Wire.
I know how hard it is some days to sweep the clouds away and get to sunnier days.
Our friend Elmo is right: We have to be there for each other, offer our help to a neighbor in need, and above all else, ask for help when we need it.
Even though it's hard, you're never alone. https://t.co/ffMJekbowo
