Joe Biden has been slammed from both left and right for not fulfilling at least one campaign promise, getting #BidenLied trending, triggering his supporters to try and hijack the hashtag to distract from the criticism.
#BidenLied By the time the stimulus package arrives it'll be more like 600 bucks instead of the 2000 we were promised but don't worry, Jill Biden is going to hand out cookies later.— Bela Lou Ghostley (@BelaGhostley) January 31, 2021
After decades in politics, Biden being accused of lying to the public by critics is nothing new, but his first days as president have even some supporters questioning his honesty.
As numerous liberals called out Biden for his $1.9 trillion Covid-19 stimulus plan offering $1400 direct payments to Americans when he actually promised $2000 “immediately” after taking office, critics jumped on the bandwagon and got #BidenLied trending on Twitter.
Conservatives used the hashtag to point out other controversial positions from Biden’s past.
