This Joe Biden inauguration joke was made so much better by people not getting it
Over on Twitter journalist Chris Giles thought he’d make a joke about the size of the crowd at Joe Biden’s inauguration.
You’ll remember the crowd size was a bit of an issue when Trump became president four years ago but, well, over to Chris.
Looks like the crowds for Biden are smaller than they were for Trump. Period

And we mention it partly coz it’s a good joke, but mostly because of all the responses from people who just didn’t get it, and it made it so much better …
Because there’s a global pandemic 🤡

Google ‘Capitol Hill’ and you’ll see why. Amazed you missed that episode, it’s gonna blow your mind.

Because, unlike Trump, the Biden administration recognises that safety of people during a pandemic is more important.

400,000 dead from #Covid might have something to with it?
Er COVID! This apparently is a “journalist” https://t.co/ZYKliSdHFK

This makes sense because we're in a global pandemic

Clue no 1. Pandemic
Clue no 2. Security

"Looks like the crowds for Biden are smaller than they were for Trump. Period"
I should hope so, there's a pandemic raging.

Could it be because no public is allowed to attend ? COVID is a thing in the USA ….

"Intelligent" comment from an corvidiot. Period.

But that is a good thing in a pandemic….

Could be due to the virus

Last word to @jimmfelton who had this to say to @ChrisGiles_ who originally made the joke.
Genuinely impressed by your restraint in not telling everybody “that’s the joke”. I think my skull would have exploded by this point.
