Did you guys see this painfully cringe moment in Florida yesterday, when after being introduced by Luis Fonsi (of Despacito fame), Joe Biden did this?

SO MUCH CRINGE AND AWKWARD OMG.
Listen, I get it. Leftists will try to spin this as hard as they can as some sort of homage to Luis Fonsi because it was his song, but to play Despacito (which hilariously translates to “slowly” – which is PERFECT considering Trump mocks Biden’s slowness a LOT), is just the height of pandering. These are essentially the tightest pander pants Joe Biden has ever worn.
So what did Trump do? He retweeted a manipulated version of the video clip, so it looks like Joe played NWA’s F*ck The Police instead. The end result?
Well, just take a look.
What is this all about? https://t.co/AAmBGgHhyR
