Democrats were roundly mocked Tuesday after sharing a post that attempted to portray Joe Biden, 80, as "cool."

The official Democratic Party account posted an image on X, formerly Twitter, of Biden wearing a tuxedo and his trademark aviator sunglasses. "President @JoeBiden isn't a regular president—he's a cool president. #MeanGirlsDay," the caption read.

The post was shared on Oct. 3, popularly known as "Mean Girls Day," and referred to a line from the 2004 comedy.

"Being cool is a lot like being funny. If you have to tell people that you are, … you're not," wrote the Daily Wire's Virginia Kruta.

"I just cringed so hard my bones turned to jelly," conservative poster Noam Blum wrote.

The official GOP account responded with a GIF of Biden stumbling on Air Force One's stairs.

This is not the first time that Democrats' efforts to make Biden look cool have backfired.

Biden was widely panned for a cringeworthy Dec. 2021 TikTok video he recorded with the Jonas Brothers to promote COVID-19 vaccines.

More recently, Biden bungled the name of hip-hop legend LL Cool J, only to compound his failure by referring to the black musical artist as "boy."
