If you watched the final presidential debate on Thursday evening, then you saw that President Donald Trump wanted to talk about anything but how he’s mishandled the coronavirus pandemic, which has claimed the lives of 225,000 Americans on his watch.
At one point, Joe Biden turned to Trump and made it clear he holds the president responsible for every single American who has died from COVID-19, telling the incumbent:
“Anyone responsible for that many deaths should not remain as the president of United States of America.”
Trump, in contrast, tried to suggest that the entire topic of the virus had been featured too prominently in the debate and urged Americans to move on from the horrific death toll:
“We are rounding the corner. It’s going away.
“There are some spikes and surges in other places. They will soon be gone.”
However, the president presented no new ideas or plans for how to deal with COVID, claiming that increased testing was responsible for a rise in cases across the nation.
Now, however, the Biden campaign has expertly demolished Trump and his failure to control the virus with a tweet that is simultaneously brilliant and utterly devastating:
After eight months of this pandemic, we finally found President Trump’s plan to beat COVID-19. https://t.co/KO4g328Uvr

When you click on the link, you’re redirected to a page which lays out the Trump COVID-19 plan and reads:
“The Trump plan to defeat the Coronavirus and reopen safely does not exist.”
Now that’s what you call savage.
Twitter users loved the masterful trolling job Biden had just pulled off:

This is spectacular. The level of burn and shade combined through truth alone is awe inspiring. Impressed.

I am going to bookmark this tweet for my children and subsequent generations to see.
This is the Shade of the Century.

Memo to Joe Biden: Whatever you’re paying your digital campaign team, it’s not nearly enough. They’re freaking killing it.
