“The Daily Show” Twitter account clearly didn’t realize their core audience would freak out when they posted a meme criticizing President Joe Biden’s energy level during his State of the Union address.
The Trevor Noah hosted show tweeted a graphic of the screen an iPhone displays when the battery is low and needs to be recharged, along with the caption: “Biden [right now].”
The show’s liberal Twitter fans reacted to the post with outrage. “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,” one user replied.
“What the f–k?!?! Who hacked this account?!? This is bulls–t!!! [Trevor Noah] did you approve this?!?” Screeched another.
The show caved to critics and has since deleted the tweet, but not before it was screen captured by tech savvy Twitter users.

“The Daily Show’s” Biden meme wasn’t the only State of the Union tweet that liberal fans found questionable.
“FAST FACT: Joe Biden’s speech marks the first time in American history that the State of The Union has been…ya know, the thing,” they posted, adding: “FAST FACT: As a consolation for having to miss the State of the Union address, the designated survivor gets to miss the State of the Union address.”
“It’s a thing because, as a nation and as a world clinging to hope, it mattered.
@POTUS delivered,” wrote one peeved replier.
“Is it just me or are the “jokes” getting stupider by the day. The show used to be funny and insightful. What happened?” Another complained.
They pissed off even more people with a final Biden meme that showed the President’s head upside down on his body. “GAFFE MACHINE: Joe Biden just showed up to the State of the Union with his face on upside down,” the account tweeted.
“Still confused by this tweet and the earlier one. Very poor taste in a time of crisis,” whined another follower.
