Social Media Mocks CBS News Over “Former President” Biden Labeling

A recent slip-up by CBS News on social media prompted a flurry of online mockery as users seized on the mistake to speculate on the public sentiment towards President Joe Biden. The incident occurred when CBS News referred to President Biden as “former president” in a post on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter.

The gaffe was quickly rectified by CBS News, who deleted the erroneous post and replaced it with a corrected version containing a link to a livestream of President Biden’s remarks at Camp David during a summit with South Korean and Japanese leaders. The revised post acknowledged the mistake and clarified that President Biden is, indeed, the current president.

However, the initial error did not escape the notice of social media users, who took the opportunity to jest at the expense of CBS News. Some speculated that the slip was a “Freudian Slip,” suggesting that it might unintentionally reveal the country’s dissatisfaction with President Biden’s leadership.

Townhall columnist Brad Slager humorously questioned whether CBS News had inadvertently employed a template meant for use in the future, while conservative author Bonnie Fontes playfully commented with a touch of irony, “Wishful thinking.”

Another conservative account, “I Want My Country Back,” cast doubt on the accidental nature of the mistake, implying that it could be a revealing subconscious action.

Bill Clinton sexual assault accuser Juanita Broaddrick even shared the original CBS post, sparking speculation with her comment, “CBS just referred to Joe as ‘Former President Biden’. Do they know something we don’t?”
