On February 11th, 2021, Deputy White House Press Secretary TJ Ducklo made a major gaffe when he accidentally posted a tweet that read “Joe Biden showered with his daughter”. The tweet was quickly deleted, but not before it was screenshotted and shared widely on social media.
The tweet was posted in response to a tweet from conservative political commentator Stephen Miller, who had criticized President Biden for his handling of the coronavirus pandemic. Ducklo responded with the now-infamous tweet, which was quickly deleted.
After the tweet was deleted, Ducklo issued an apology, saying that he had meant to post a different tweet, but had accidentally posted the wrong one. He added that he had “deep regret” for his mistake.
The White House also issued a statement, saying that they had taken action to ensure that such an incident would not happen again. They also said that Ducklo had been reprimanded for his mistake.
The incident caused a stir on social media, with many people expressing outrage at Ducklo’s mistake. Others defended Ducklo, saying that he had made a mistake and deserved a second chance.
Regardless of the public’s opinion, the incident serves as a reminder of the importance of being careful when using social media, especially when it comes to topics involving the President of the United States. Social media can be a powerful tool, but it can also be a dangerous one if used carelessly.
