Comedy legend Tim Allen caused the Left to melt down this week after he posted a “dad joke” mocking Democrat President Joe Biden on Twitter that quickly went viral.
Allen was responding to Biden’s Sunday interview with CBS’s “60 Minutes.”
During the interview, Biden made multiple statements that were later walked back later by unnamed White House staff.
Aside from raising further concerns about who is really in charge, the issue provoked widespread mockery of Biden on social media.
But it was Allen who won the game with his simple “dad joke.”
“Biden was on 60 minutes,” Allen tweeted.
“I heard he asked how long the show was.”

After the joke went viral, the Left expressed outrage.
However, Allen silenced his critics with the perfect comeback:
“I started my 35 year stand up career because of genius’s like the man who said: ‘I never met anybody who said when they were a kid, I wanna grow up to be a critic.’ – Richard Pryor.”

It wasn’t just Allen who sounded the alarm about Biden’s interview.
CBS News anchor Norah O’Donnell and senior White House correspondent Ed O’Keefe were also confused by the flubs.
Both O’Donnell and O’Keefe seemed stunned that so many of Biden’s statements needed to be corrected and walked back by staff after it aired.
Fox News star Jesse Watters also raised questions about whether Biden is “really the president.”
“Is it me or do you guys get the feeling that Joe Biden is not really the president?” Watters said.
“Who is this unnamed ‘U.S. official’? Is he the president?
“Joe Biden is the commander-in-chief.
“He’s supposed to set foreign policy, but when he goes out there and sets it, there’s someone else behind the curtain saying, ‘No, no, no, no, no, no. That’s not really what our policy is.’ What?
“That answer tells me it’s not even up to Biden whether he runs again.
“Someone’s going to tell Joe if he’s running or not running, and he’s just going to do whatever they tell him.
“Remember, Jill Biden doesn’t even know if Joe is running and they sleep together.”
