Biden’s speech lasted roughly one hour and two minutes, but before he concluded his speech, the satire news show’s Twitter account seemed to indicate he was losing steam, sharing an image of a drained iPhone battery.
“Biden [right now],” read the tweet.
The tweet sparked backlash from the left, fueling accusations of ageism. The tweet was quickly deleted.
“The Daily Show” did, however, keep other tweets gently mocking Biden as well as other lawmakers who attended the State of the Union address, including Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., for his viral premature applause and Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., and Lauren Boebert, R-Colo., who were seen shouting together in the middle of Biden’s speech.
Liberals were largely complimentary of Biden. CNN anchor Jake Tapper called his performance “fairly solid” while CNN commentator Van Jones declared “Uncle Joe is back” and that it was him “at his best.”
Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin said Biden “delivered,” claiming his speech was “more bipartisan than one could have imagined.”
“Late Show” host Stephen Colbert described the State of the Union address as a “rollercoaster ride of rip-roaring reasonableness.”
