President Joe Biden is making waves on social media for all the wrong reasons. Many are wondering whether there is any truth to rumors that Biden had a "bathroom incident" during his meeting with the Pope at the Vatican, causing the hashtag #poopypantsbiden to trend on Twitter.

Biden met with Pope Francis on Friday, October 29, as part of the POTUS' official state visit to the Vatican since taking office. Biden, who is only the second Catholic president in US history, appeared at the Vatican’s San Damaso Stadium at 12 pm local time. He and his wife, First Lady Jill Biden, were greeted by Monseigneur Leonardo Sapienza, who runs the papal household, as well as Gentlemen of His Holiness. However, rumor has it that Biden's meeting with the Pope was unusually long because he had to use the facilities at the Vatican before he left.

"The word around Rome is that Biden’s meeting with the Pope was unusually long because Biden had a bit of a 'bathroom accident' at the Vatican & it had to be addressed prior to him leaving," conservative strategist Amy Tarkanian tweeted. "I know we joke often about this, but this is the actual rumor going around Rome now."


There is no specific image or video suggesting Biden pooped his pants and it's only speculation at this time. However, this is not the first time the leader of the free world has faced such accusations. Many believe that Biden couldn't help himself during his meeting with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on September 22, and therefore White House staff cut Johnson mid-sentence and asked the news media to leave immediately. 


Biden faced similar allegations when he called for multiple bathroom breaks during his first debate with former President Donald J Trump. Fox News reported at the time how the Democratic presidential nominee asked for breaks every 30 minutes to allow both parties to rest during the meeting, which is only scheduled to last 90 minutes and features no commercial breaks.

The POTUS has now become the subject of mockery on social media, with other hashtags such as #Bidenbathroomaccident and #Bidenshitshispants also trending on Twitter. "Remember when Biden’s dogs were blamed for pooping on the floor in the White House and then they got rid of them? Makes you think," one critic joked. "I'll take mean tweets over a senile old bas*** that craps his pants in front of the freaking Pope," another wrote.

"At the #G20RomeSummit the United States is represented by an infant that shits himself #PoopypantsBiden," a comment read. "At first the Pope thought Biden wanted to start talking about climate change but then he realized Joe was saying he wanted his diaper changed. At that point the Pope just wanted to know if his butt had been wiped," another quipped.








Is this what REALLY happened?

While Biden's critics may choose to believe the rumor mill, his supporters are pointing to reports of a "minor accident" his motorcade had on Friday, October 29, which could have been misconstrued as a "bathroom accident." The accident reportedly occurred while the presidential convoy was departing the Vatican and headed to Quirinale Palace, where Biden met with Italian leaders, including President Sergio Mattarella.

According to the White House, no serious injuries were sustained. However, passengers were evaluated by US medical personnel out of an abundance of caution. It's worth noting that the president's armored limousine, also known as "The Beast" was not involved in the accident.
