Trump pokes fun at Biden's ‘Despacito’ stunt but gets trolled himself: ‘We need to discuss his mental decline’
Democratic presidential candidate Biden took out his iPhone and briefly danced to the tunes of 'Despacito' at an event held in Kissimmee, Florida
Donald Trump and Joe Biden are leaving no stone unturned to woo followers and clinch the presidential post as the United States gears up for elections on Tuesday, November 3, 2020. In an attempt to do so, the two often take to social media to slam each other's moves and it was no different this Tuesday, September 15, 2020.
Democratic presidential candidate Biden took out his iPhone and briefly danced to the tunes of 'Despacito' at an event held in Kissimmee, Florida, to kick off the Hispanic Heritage Month. Biden was introduced by Puerto Rican-American singer Luis Fonsi and apparently, he played the song to honor the singer's Spanish roots. Sadly, it didn't go as planned. As videos started floating on social media, it didn't take much time for the Internet to mock his moves and call out "the EXTRA levels of cringe".
Not one to let go of the golden opportunity, Trump too took to Twitter and slammed Biden saying: "What is this all about?" His tweet caught one too many eyeballs and garnered over 6,000 retweets and 22,000 likes at the time of writing.

Well, his tweet soon landed him in soup and several people on the Internet started trolling him over his Town Hall hosted by ABC News from the battleground state of Pennsylvania instead. The Lincoln Project targetted his post and shared a clip from his Town Hall on his misstatement of "herd mentality" instead of "herd immunity" and wrote: "What is this all about?" Another Twitter user posted, "Many people are saying this GIF is an accurate description of Trump’s performance at tonight’s town hall meeting." One even went on to post: "Your town hall was a train wreck."

At the town hall, Trump defended his take on how the novel coronavirus would “disappear” with or without a vaccine and said that the United States would develop what he called “herd mentality”. The US president also added, “With time it goes away,” adding, “You'll develop — you'll develop herd — like a herd mentality. It's going to be, it’s going to be herd-developed, and that's going to happen. That will all happen. But with a vaccine, I think it will go away very quickly.” Apparently, he meant herd immunity and misspoke it as herd mentality.
Many others had some strong statements to make. "Raise your hand if you think that Donald Trump needs to be removed from office immediately," one tweet read and another said, "We need to discuss Donald Trump’s mental decline." One Twitter user wrote: "Joe Biden is going to destroy you In the debates and in November." Actor Dave Bautista, a Biden supporter, even went on to say: "That’s America bonding with their next president. It’s kinda like you passing out douchey red hats to morons."
