Joe Biden Trolls Donald Trump By Using One Of His Favorite Things Against Him

The president mocked his campaign rival for doing the one thing he claimed he wouldn’t have time for.

President Joe Biden turned one of Donald Trump’s favorite activities against him in a new ad posted on social media mocking the former president for golfing instead of campaigning.

The spot juxtaposes news reports of Biden traveling around the country to meet voters against footage of Trump golfing.

The audio also lays out some of Biden’s legislative priorities, such as border security, reproductive rights, healthcare, housing and more. That’s put up against one of Trump’s priorities: bragging that he won two golf trophies at his own club.

Trump once famously claimed he wouldn’t golf much as president.

“I would rarely leave the White House because there’s so much work to be done,” Trump told The Hill in 2015. In 2016, he declared he would “stay in the White House and work my ass off.”

Once in office, Trump golfed endlessly, playing nearly 300 rounds over four years, costing taxpayers more than $150 million in travel and security costs.

The Biden campaign’s rapid response team also posted the video on X, and turned an old Trump insult against Biden around and aimed it right back at Trump.

“President Biden has been criss-crossing the country, visiting every major battleground state in just 18 days,” the team wrote. “Donald Trump is sitting in his golf cart and hiding in his basement.”

That’s a reference to the 2020 campaign, when Trump accused Biden of “hiding in his basement” for campaigning via video at a time when the COVID-19 pandemic made travel and group events unsafe.
