Biden town hall prompts mockery, 'Beavis and Butthead' comparisons

President Biden is being dragged on social media after a moment in his CNN town hall performance that has users comparing him to the cartoon “Beavis and Butthead.” 

While listening to a question from CNN’s Anderson Cooper, Biden stood on the stage with his arms bent in front of him and fists closed. Dozens of netizens took to Twitter sharing an image of Biden in the position along with a picture of Beavis, who is known for the trademark jittery pose. 

“Biden is straight comedy! Uhhhh Beavis……” former Australian NBA player Andrew Bogut tweeted with a laughing face emoji. 

Social media personality and commentator Mike Cernovich tweeted a video of Biden with his arms bent and asked, “What is Biden doing?”

Dozens of Twitter users flooded Cernovich’s replies, making the comparison between the president and the cartoon character. 

“That or he’s about to transform into cornholio,” one user wrote, referencing Beavis’ hyperactive alter ego that usually makes the gesture.

Others simply tweeted a doctored image of Biden from Thursday with Beavis’ head digitally placed over his. 

“Who did it better?” another user asked, with side-by-side photos. 

Another user who shared Cernovich’s video took the comparison a step further, saying, “I’m not much of a conspiracy theorist… but has anyone ever seen Biden and Beavis in the same room? Checkmate, sheeple…”

“Beavis impression on point,” another tweeted.

One Twitter user called for a live-action film or show of “Beavis and Butthead” featuring Biden and former President Donald Trump.

“Let’s get Biden and Trump to do a live action Beavis and Butthead to heal the nation,” they wrote.
