"BidenRiots" started trending on Twitter late Sunday, August 30, night after Donald Trump Jr tweeted the hashtag, blaming Democratic Presidential nominee Joe Biden for the violent protests happening in places like Portland and Kenosha in the last few days after African-American men became victims of police brutality in US cities. 

"Amazing that after 90 days of silence (and not one mention at the DNC) on the looting and rioting in the #BidenRiots, Biden finally says something after CNN says it’s hurting him in the polls. Weak! These kind of pathetic actions are why he is the Loch Ness monster of the swamp!" President Donald Trump's eldest son wrote. 



 

An array of Trump supporters joined in with accusations directed at Biden, popularizing the hashtag and making it one of the top trends on social media. However, the liberals soon clapped back at the Republicans, claiming that it was Trump's ploy to divert blame for his own incompetence at handling the social unrest currently gripping the nation over racial injustice. Many of them even pointed out the bizarre trend of blaming Biden for the protests as he was not the person in a position of power and hence had no control over taking appropriate measures to calm the situation. 

Here are a few of the reactions:

"#BidenRiots happening in cities across America yet Trump is currently the President?"



 

"You speak as if Biden has be president for the last 3 & a half years. THIS IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TRUMP! #TrumpRiots #BidenRiots"



 

"Trump doesn’t want to fix America so he will blame #BidenRiots"



 

"@realDonaldTrump sits in the White House watching the country fight itself like it’s sport; applauding himself. He is pathetic. A sick disgusting pig. There are NO #BidenRiots. WHOEVER CLAIMS THIS IS A LIAR straight out of hell. This is ALL #Trumpriots instagated (sic) vs. America."



 

"This whole #BidenRiots hashtag that the GOP is spreading to blame the civil unrest on those NOT in power and forget about the #TrumpRiots reminds me of something straight out of Looney Tunes. No one can decide if it's Rabbit season or Duck season!"



 

"These riots are under Trump's watch along with the complicit GOP #BidenRiots indeed - this is Trump's #AmeriKKKa."



 

"In #BidenRiots, the most violent thing that would happen is somebody getting a pie to the face or the use of squirt guns cuz actual guns would only be in the hands of responsible people who know NOT to bring guns to a protest."



 

"Ridiculous #BidenRiots is trending. Who is the current president??? Obviously it's #TrumpRiots"



 

"We could be three years into Trump’s second term and they’d still be tweeting #BidenRiots every time a far-right militiaman guns down a black family."



 

"These are #TrumpRiots, not #BidenRiots. Trump is in office right now, not Biden. Sorry MAGA, no gaslighting for you."



 

In fact, Biden came out and condemned the violent protests currently taking place in Oregon in strong terms hours before Trump Jr claimed that the Democrats had stayed mum over the topic. "The deadly violence we saw overnight in Portland is unacceptable. Shooting in the streets of a great American city is unacceptable. I condemn violence of every kind by anyone, whether on the left or the right. And I challenge Donald Trump to do the same," he wrote. 



 

In another tweet, the former vice president wrote, "We must not become a country at war with ourselves. A country that accepts the killing of fellow Americans who do not agree with you. A country that vows vengeance toward one another. But that is the America that President Trump wants us to be, the America he believes we are," adding in a separate post, "Donald Trump has been president for almost four years. The temperature in the country is higher, tensions run stronger, divisions run deeper. And all of us are less safe because he can’t do the job of the American president."
