This development did not elude the attention of Fox News host Tucker Carlson who proclaimed that "the orange man is back".
As US President Joe Biden finds himself in hot water over the United States military’s – and rather inglorious – withdrawal from Afghanistan amid the triumphant march of the Taliban*, the POTUS has been mocked online for....his skin tone.
A number of Twitter users shared images from a recent TV interview with Biden, pointing out that the president’s skin appears to have taken on an orange hue.
Some called him “orange man,” likely referring to how Biden’s predecessor, the 45th US President Donald Trump, was often mocked for his luminous skin tone.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson also took note of this development, saying that “the orange man is back."
Others jokes that Biden is turning "more orange the less popular he becomes."
*The Taliban is a terrorist organisation banned in Russia and many other countries.
