The Republican National Committee's latest attack on President Joe Biden fell completely flat on Friday.
"Joe Biden says the length of Barack Obama's signature is shorter than his. Obama's is 3 letters longer," the RNC argued on Twitter.
Parker Malloy, who writes for The Present Age, noted a fatal flaw in the attack by the RNC's research department.
Molloy noted Obama would sign bills and executive orders "Barack Obama" (11 letters), while the current president signs his name "Joseph R. Biden, Jr." (14 letters).

Molloy wasn't the only one puzzled by the GOP attack. Here's some of what others were saying:
Do you know the difference between the number of letters in a signature and the length of a signature?

Is this supposed to be a distraction from the GOP's attempted overthrow of the duly elected government?

Today I learned that the “RNC Research" section doesn't know that Joe is short for Joseph.

Nice to see the RNC is up to its usual standards when it comes to honesty.
