Twitter Is Loving This Joe Biden Moment At A Virginia Rally

President Joe Biden may be the oldest president in American history, but he certainly isn't above indulging in a bit of 21st century fun. At an Arlington, Virginia, rally for Terry McAuliffe, who is running for state governor (where he actually was governor from 2014 to 2018), Biden excused himself in mid-sentence to take a sip of water. But it was the sip seen 'round the country because the way Biden did it seemed to throw shade at his predecessor Donald Trump.

The president picked up a glass from under the podium and lifted it up to take a drink with one hand, drawing loud cheers from the crowd. As lawyer George Conway (and husband to former Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway) tweeted: "ONE HAND OMG"

One eyewitness came forward to tell the Twitterverse what he had seen: "I was there and can vouch for it. It took me a minute to figure out why everyone went crazy when he took a drink". Another social media user said, "How does he do it all! What's next ....walking down a ramp without help ?" A third helpfully tweeted, "He also speaks in full sentences. Is there anything Biden can't do?"

But not everyone was impressed; one social media user asked, "Who's footing the audience bill?" in response to the video which featured a cheering crowd. Another said, "Too bad @potus's cognitive decline was on full display in his ratings bomb of a @cnn town hall @donlemon."

Donald Trump has been seen struggling with a water glass

Donald Trump's problems with drinking water became social media fodder in 2020 when he was seen in public several times struggling to lift a glass with one hand and taking it to his lips. At that time, one of the videos (which hit 6.9 million views) showed Trump at one point lifting a glass with one hand and supporting it with another (via Twitter), leading social media users at the time to speculate about Trump's well-being. It even triggered the hashtag #TrumpIsNotWell on social media (via Raw Story).  

As for Joe Biden, he's not the only expert at throwing shade at the White House. When asked to comment about Trump's reaction to a change of name by the "Cleveland Indians" to "Guardians," White House press secretary Jen Psaki brushed the non-issue aside, saying, "We certainly support their change of name. We may be on the other side of the president ... former president on that front, I would guess. I haven't seen his tweet, or however he's communicating these days," she said with a wave of her hand (via Twitter).
