Earlier, we told you about deputy White House press secretary Andrew Bates’ very sad attempt to make a badass “Dark Brandon” meme happen. Here it is again:

Screenshotted, just because:
“What’s the big deal?” you might be asking yourselves. Well, look closer. Do you notice anything? Anything a little off … ensive, perhaps?

Let’s see if a tweet from an official Biden White House account gets the same treatment. https://t.co/wpjgpbalzo
