As he delivered his speech on inflation and the status of the American economy in Iowa on Tuesday, US President Joe Biden was greeted with an unwanted surprise: a bird appeared to poop on his suit. Mr Biden was reportedly presenting plans to lower gas prices and “placing rural America at the centre of our efforts to build a future that’s built in America” when a white material dropped on his jacket, just above his American flag pin, according to a popular video on social media.
“It’s all about being manufactured in America,” Trump declared just before the faeces episode. Take a look at this video:
The event occurred inside a “huge barn,” according to Fox News. It was later explained by a White House official that the substance was “corn,” not “bird crap.” Despite this, Twitter users mocked the suspected bird droppings in the video.
“Pence, get out of here.” One Twitter user joked, “It’s Biden shoulder bird poop,” referencing to former Vice President Mike Pence’s famous fly on his head during his debate with Kamala Harris last year. Another person added, “Biden wasn’t the only one spouting faeces today.” “Now even the birds are irritated.” A third user chimed up, “What’s Next?”
Meanwhile, it’s worth noting that Vice President Biden arrived in Des Moines on Tuesday for his “rural infrastructure tour.” In his speech, Obama addressed the nationwide increase in fuel prices that Americans are facing. He announced his intention to prolong the supply of E15 gasoline, which contains 15% ethanol, from June 1 to September 15.
The US President’s statement in Iowa came after he first mentioned the subway shootings in Brooklyn, New York, that occurred during morning rush hour.
