Attacking US President Joe Biden, Donald Trump called the White House a “senior residence” where “residents feel like presidents”.
On his Instagram account on Thursday (local time), Trump, who is leading the 2024 GOP presidential race, shared a 30-second clip, featuring nasty photos of Biden, with a soft voiceover in the style of television commercials for retirement residences. In the video, the US President can be seen enjoying pizza, ice cream and outdoor activities.
“Our vibrant facility offers enjoyable activities and outings, 24-hour professional care, and delicious home-cooked meals,” the narrator explains.
“A senior living community at the White House, where residents feel like presidents,” he concludes.
The video posted by Trump on his Instagram page garnered 207,407 likes and is now also circulating on X (formerly Twitter).
This is how the Internet reacts
Several X users called the video “absolutely hysterical,” adding that “Joe Biden can’t go to the Aldi grocery store alone but luckily he lives at White House Senior Living.”
“It’s time to end White House Senior Living,” another user said.
“MAISON BLANCHE Residence for the elderly. Our residents feel good within the walls of the White House nursing home! Life is in full swing, lots of different activities, trips into nature. 24-hour professional care and exclusive home cooking. “White House Nursing Home – feel like a president!” another user X wrote.
Trump mocks Biden for being lost and confused on stage
Last year, Trump mocked Biden’s frequent mistakes and mishaps on stage during a speech at the California Republican Party convention.
The former US president questioned the 80-year-old’s mental and physical ability to serve another term as president. He said Biden often seemed lost and confused in public, failing to leave the stage after giving speeches.
Trump even mimicked Biden’s awkward stage exits by pretending to be disoriented and unable to locate the stairs behind the podium. He turned in a circle, approached the wall and raised his hands in despair, while the crowd laughed and applauded.
“Where the hell am I?” » exclaimed Trump.
“I’ve never seen this stupid scene before.” I never saw it. But if I walk to the left, there is a staircase and if I walk to the right, there is a staircase,” he added.
