Joe Biden’s “Will You Shut Up, Man” debate line gives birth to Meme

0

A highlight of the first presidential debate between President Donald Trump and Democratic candidate Joe Biden, which got everyone talking last night, was Biden’s retort to Trump’s interruptions: “Do you want to shut up, man?”

Biden’s response came as Trump continued to interrupt him when discussing the Supreme Court. When moderator Chris Wallace stepped in, Biden said, “It’s so un-presidential,” later told Trump, “Keep barking, man.”

During the debate, Biden also called Trump a “clown” and was clearly exasperated at trying to compete for his voice during his speaking time.

Trump continuously interrupted Biden throughout the debate, so it’s no surprise that the “Shut Up” line became a hit with Biden supporters, quickly becoming a meme and even an item of clothing.

Tom Watson said, “Honestly, ‘Are you going to shut up, man?’ went down in the history of the presidential debate with Nixon’s beard. Iconic. “

Biden supporters and Trump critics took to Twitter to say how relevant the line was. Many viewers were frustrated by Trump’s interruptions, and Wallace was criticized for failing to keep control of the debate.

Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci said: “‘Are you going to shut up, man?’ could not have been said better. “

While Twitter user ObamaMama16 wanted to rally his followers to show their support by saying, “Let’s get some t-shirts that say, ‘Are you gonna shut up man?'”

The Biden team didn’t disappoint, and within hours, they had adopted the meme and a “Are you gonna shut up, man?” The t-shirt was for sale on the official website.

While some Twitter users are disappointed that the t-shirt features the image of Trump, many independent artists come up with their own versions of “Do you want to shut up, man?” quote.

Although the line arrived early in the first presidential debate, its relativity sparked a meme that Biden supporters will certainly continue to use for the remainder of the election.
