Reports that President Joe Biden’s allegedly used pseudonym called Robert L Peters back in his vice presidential days has sparked a ton of memes online.
It was reported that Biden used the pseudonym back in the day for various communications including for sending emails to his son Hunter Biden’s foreign business associates as well as scheduling secret calls with the president of Ukraine.
People on social media have turned the newly discovered information about the president into a meme fest, most popular being an imagined friendship between Robert L Peters and Pierre Delecto, the name used by former Utah Senator Mitt Romney to create a fake Twitter account.
Here are some of the reactions:
Romney clarified in a 2019 interview with USA Today that he was the owner of an anonymous Twitter account, which was created by his son in 2011. It was used mainly to browse what was being discussed and read news articles.
Twitter account with the name Pierre Delecto was ousted as being used by Romney after then-GOP presidential candidate mentioned using a private account to follow what was happening on X, formerly known as Twitter. Slate reporter Ashley Feinberg was the one who discovered Delecto was in fact Romney.
“I think I had eight people who were following me, so it’s not like I was shaping public opinion,” Romney said in the interview. When it comes to choosing the name Pierre Delecto for the account, he said that he didn’t put a ton of thought behind it.
“You know, like with passwords, you think OK, what’s my password gonna be,” he said. “It’s like whatever comes to your mind. Pierre, OK. Delecto means delightful.”
On Wednesday, House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer asked the National Archives to hand over any unredacted records including those which use Biden’s other known pseudonyms — “Robin Ware” and “JRB Ware.” Requests were also made to hand over certain other documents, such as drafts of Biden’s December 2015 speech to Ukraine’s parliament.
