President Joe Biden is up to his old tricks again, this time joining the controversial and potentially dangerous TikTok platform despite his own administration warning against its use. In a desperate attempt to reach young voters, Biden and his campaign have decided to dive headfirst into the world of short videos and dance challenges.

The campaign’s first TikTok video, which was captioned with a cringeworthy “lol hey guys,” was launched during the Super Bowl, showing just how out of touch the Biden team truly is. Despite ongoing concerns surrounding the app’s security, Biden’s advisers claimed it was crucial to spread their message across every possible platform.
While the campaign boasts about incorporating a “sophisticated security protocol,” it’s hard to imagine how a platform filled with lip-syncing and viral dances could be considered secure for a presidential campaign. The fact that they believe they can reach young voters by referencing memes and conspiracy theories is both laughable and concerning.
Even when asked about a baseless conspiracy theory suggesting the Super Bowl was rigged in favor of the Chiefs to support Taylor Swift, Biden played coy and dodged the question. This just goes to show that the Biden campaign is more interested in pandering to the masses than addressing important issues facing the country.
To make matters worse, the administration has continued to express skepticism toward TikTok, with Biden even going as far as banning the app on the devices of federal employees due to security concerns. So which is it, Biden? Is TikTok a dangerous platform, or is it the key to reaching young voters? It seems like the left hand doesn’t know what the right hand is doing in the Biden administration.
