Biden Jokes About Trump’s Mugshot, Calling Him a ‘Handsome Guy’
President Joe Biden on Friday quipped about former President Donald Trump’s mugshot, calling him a “handsome guy” after he was booked in Fulton County, Georgia.
When asked about the mugshot by reporters, Biden said, “I did see it on television. Handsome guy.”
Trump on Thursday evening surrendered to Georgia authorities after being charged on 13 counts related to seeking to overturn the state’s 2020 election. He took a mug shot, making him the first former president in history to do so.
“They insisted on a mug shot, and I agreed to do that,” Trump told Fox Digital after the fact. “This is the only time I’ve ever taken a mug shot.”
Biden’s joke about Trump’s mugshot was met with mixed reactions. Some people found it to be funny, while others thought it was inappropriate.
Regardless of how people felt about the joke, it is clear that Biden is not taking Trump’s legal troubles lightly. The president has repeatedly said that he believes Trump should be held accountable for his actions.
The charges against Trump are serious, and they could have a significant impact on his political future. If convicted, Trump could face up to 10 years in prison.
The case against Trump is still in its early stages, and it is not yet clear how it will play out. However, the charges are a major development in the ongoing investigation into Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election.
The case is also likely to have a significant impact on American politics. It is a test of whether former presidents are above the law, and it could have implications for future elections.
