President Joe Biden Taps Throwback Thirst Traps, Teen Superstar Olivia Rodrigo, To Get Us Out Of This Mess
As the Delta variant of Covid-19 spreads throughout the nation, it seems President Joe Biden is willing to do just about anything to persuade America's youth to receive a coronavirus vaccine – even posting a Presidential thirst trap.
Yep, on Tuesday, 46 boldly cut any remaining trace of mullarkey when it came to begging zoomers to get a Covid-19 jab, sharing a steamy snap of him in his youth alongside a pointed public health message for young people. “I know this young person would've gotten vaccinated, but we've got to get other young people protected as well,” wrote the President. "Who's willing to help?"
Yet instead of commenting on his important sentiments, it seems some of Biden's nearly 18 million Instagram followers had several thoughts on his post – namely, the fact that good 'ol Joe was pretty damn hot back in the day.
“POTUS pulling out the thirst trap, it must be serious,” wrote one commenter. “Are your DMs open, Joe?” inquired another in a not-so-subtle bid to replace Jill Biden as FSOTUS (First Spouse of the United States).
However, posting a steamy old pic is far from Biden's only attempt at sharing important information regarding Covid-19 safety measures to teens. For those too jaded and/or too politically aware to actually enjoy ogling a sexy Biden (sorry, mom!), the President has tapped the embodiment of zoomer angst to speak out on the importance of vaccination, none other than the Sour prom queen herself, Olivia Rodrigo. On Wednesday, the teen superstar took a break from her busy schedule likely consisting of promoting her incredible new album, Sour, appearing on Disney+'s High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, and inadvertently pissing off Courtney Love to meet with the president as well as Covid-19 medical adviser, Dr. Anthony Fauci, and share a few words of wisdom with her peers.
"I am beyond honored and humbled to be here today to help spread the message about the importance of youth vaccination," Rodrigo said during a White House press briefing. "I'm in awe of the work President Biden and Dr. Fauci have done and was happy to help lend my support to this important initiative. It's important to have conversations with friends and family members encouraging all communities to get vaccinated, and actually get to a vaccination site, which you can do more easily than ever before, given how many sites we have and how easy it is to find them at vaccines.gov."
Aside from addressing the press, Rodrigo also spent her time in D.C. creating several videos reiterating the points made in her speech, discussing “the importance of young people getting vaccinated” as well as "answering important questions young people have about getting vaccinated," according to a White House official. These clips will be posted to both the White House's and Rodrigo's respective social media pages, per CNN.
So folks, take it from Rodrigo, it may be brutal out here, but at least we can all get our Covid-19 vaccines to help stop the spread of the Delta variant – please, before Biden posts yet another thirst trap.
