Trump Team Advisor Mercedes Schlapp Attacks Biden by Comparing Him to Beloved Icon Mr. Rogers
Mercedes Schlapp, a senior adviser for President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign, attacked former Vice President Joe Biden by comparing him to beloved icon, Mr. Rogers, during Biden’s town hall, notes USA TODAY.
Schlapp was quickly mocked on Twitter for her “self-own” as Fred Rogers was known to be patient, inclusive, and kind.

This may be the worst self-own I’ve seen this political season, especially since the universally beloved Mr. Rogers was from Pennsylvania, where Biden was tonight. #BidenTownHall https://t.co/dHpCA5S1nA

Call me hopelessly old school, but I’m pro-Mister Rogers and anti-QAnon.

hard to believe Trump’s losing with a crack team of advisors who think a Mr Rogers comparison is a sick burn

Mr. Rogers never chased people around with a chainsaw shouting the N word, like the folks you retweet. That’s the truth.
