Donald Trump vs Joe Biden Meanings

Donald Trump:

It's the DJT, gettin' it on!

(Trump was known to constantly interrupt his opponents during the elections, so he does the same to the announcer before he could finish his line. The specific reference in this case is when Trump constantly interrupted Biden during the first debate of the 2020 election, so much that the moderator, Chris Wallace, had to intervene. Trump often included his middle initial (J.) in his full name, so the initials DJT are recognizable in referring to him. This also works as a play on words in which Trump calls himself a DJ, or Disc Jockey, which is commonly associated with rap skill.)

The Teflon Don on the White House lawn!

(Teflon is the brand name of a chemical coating known as polytetrafluoroethylene, or PTFE. It creates a non-stick surface and is best known for its use in cookware. A don is a name for the leader of a mafia gang. "Teflon Don" was the nickname of American gangster, John Gotti, which he acquired after three high-profile trials in the 1980s resulted in his acquittal. The American media dubbed him "The Teflon Don" because none of the charges levied against him "stuck." A "don" refers to the leader of a mafia gang, and also a shortening of Trump’s first name. Due to his own ability to withstand scandal, political or otherwise, Donald Trump has also been referred to as "Teflon Don," thus making him the Teflon Don of the White House, where the President resides. Trump also often preferred to answer questions by reporters on the lawn of the White House.)

Against wimps like you, I'll win a third term.

(Trump says he would win against Joe Biden, who was considered by many Republicans to not have enough energy or support to beat Trump. On many occasions, Trump spoke about remaining in office beyond the two-term limit for presidents (which had only been accomplished once prior, by Franklin D. Roosevelt), often suggesting that he would try to run for a third term had he won for re-election. During a rally, he also said, "If you want to really drive them crazy, you say 12 more years," a reference to the common refrain of "four more years" for popular sitting presidents and extending it more to anger Democrats. This could also be a reference on this being Trump's third battle in ERB.)

Your campaign's like your family: crash and burn!

(Biden's first wife Neilia Hunter and their daughter Naomi were killed in a car accident in 1972, after Biden was just elected to the U.S. Senate. Trump has been known to make many personal attacks on his rival's family, so he states that Biden's presidential campaign will crash and burn just like his family did.)

Think looting and violence will keep the MAGA movement quiet?

(While most of the protests during the height of the Black Lives Matter movement in 2020 were peaceful, a few protests turned into large riots and the looting of small businesses in cities such as Minneapolis, Minnesota, where a black man, George Floyd, was suffocated and murdered by a police officer. Trump claims these politically-motivated violent actions are an attempt to silence his own movement, characterized by his campaign slogan "Make America Great Again," or MAGA, objecting that the violence will not intimidate them into remaining quiet.)

Ha! Resist me? That's a riot.

(Anti-Trump activists have often been referred as "the Resistance" as a political movement against his administration and ideology. They often use the word "Resist" as one of their many slogans on posters, demonstration signs and even as a hashtag on social media, as well as "Resist Trump." Trump laughs at this and calls it a "riot," which is a double meaning since a riot is something hilarious, often in a diminishing way, and Trump accused any protests or resistance against him as rioting.)

Why don't you step behind the gym? I'll be standing by.

(During a campaign rally in Pennsylvania for Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden said that he wishes he and Trump were in high school so he could take Trump behind the gym, a reference to where students stereotypically fight to resolve their differences. Trump challenges him to do the same to pick a fight as he believes he could beat Biden for being a frail old man now. "Standing by" could also be a reference to Trump's words in the first 2020 presidential debate, during which he told the far-right organization the Proud Boys to "stand back, and stand by," which drew heavy criticism for seeming to be military orders rather than a condemnation.)

We'll see how tough you are against the 45! (Uh!)

(Trump is the 45th President. The .45 caliber pistol is often referred to just by its caliber, thus making both Trump and the pistol "the 45." In reply to his last line, Trump challenges Biden to see how tough he claims to be in a physical altercation against him.)

I'll shoot a hole through your whole party,

(Carrying over the gun wordplay from the previous line, Trump plans to defeat Biden and the entire Democratic Party in the 2020 election by blasting them like he has bullets.)

Bigger than the one I blew through Qasem Soleimani, (Ugh!)

(On January 3, 2020, Iranian general and powerful figure Qasem Soleimani was assassinated by a US drone strike authorized by Donald Trump. He claimed that Soleimani was plotting "imminent and sinister attacks" on Americans. These actions were widely condemned by the Democratic Party and resulted in protests against the further heightening of tensions in the Middle East. Trump bragged about killing Soleimani like he does here, and he claims the hole being left on the Democratic Party will be bigger than the bullet hole on Soleimani.)

Then I go and bone on Melania! (Ugh!)

(Trump says that following his defeat of Biden, he will go have sex with his wife, Melania Trump.)

I'm gonna smash you, Joe, like China!

(During his presidency, Trump had major conflicts with China and its president (and Communist Party general secretary), Xi Jinping. In addition to setting tariffs on the trade of goods from China, this includes the US-China Trade War since 2018, which resulted into the signing of a first-phase trade agreement, with which the Trump administration claims victory over China. The Trump administration also sanctioned Chinese companies and political individuals for numerous reasons. This could also likely refer to porcelain or fine china being ceramic material that can easily be smashed. Trump also has a unique way of pronouncing China, sounding similar to 'gina', as in the word 'vagina', and 'smash' is a slang word that means to have sex. Thus, Trump makes a pun when he says he's going to smash Biden like China after saying he would smash his wife. Trump has also frequently claimed that Joe Biden is an asset working on behalf of the Chinese government, occasionally referring to him as 'China Joe'.)

I've got all the best cognition, with all the top grammar.

(During the 2020 election cycle, Biden was accused of exhibiting symptoms of dementia, a claim which has been championed by his detractors and refuted by his supporters. Trump has a tendency to boast about himself and his attributes such as in a Fox News interview where he boasted on how well he did on the Montreal Cognitive Assessment Test. Trump brags here by saying his mental acuity and grammar is superior to Biden's, who was known for making gaffes during the election.)

I'm not a little girl's shoulders, so you can't touch this, MC Stammer!

(Biden has come under scrutiny for his manner around children, including physical contact with them such as stroking their faces or hair and placing his hands on their shoulders for prolonged periods of time. These incidents have led some to accuse Biden of being a pedophile. Trump says that unlike these children, Biden won't be able to touch his presidential seat. He also references the song "U Can't Touch This" and its artist, MC Hammer, by calling Biden "MC Stammer," in reference to Biden's noted stutter.)

You're a disaster, inciting hysteria!

(Trump claims that Biden is disastrous and stirs up uncontrollable outbursts of emotion or fear.)

You say I'm selling hate in America; you're selling hatin' America!

(Trump says that although Biden claims Trump stirred up hate during his presidency, Biden's criticism of Trump and his administration is seen as hating America as a whole. Some Republicans often label their opponents as "Anti-American.")

Like with Hillary, the people aren't swayed!

(Trump says that just like when Hillary Clinton tried to take him down in 2016, the American people are not moved by Biden and will still vote Trump. What is ironic with the statement was that Donald Trump had actually lost the popular vote in 2016.)

You're just Barack's shadow, and I don't really like the shade!

(Prior to becoming the 2020 Democratic nominee for president, Joe Biden was most famous as the former Vice President of Barack Obama, Trump's immediate predecessor. Trump claims that Biden is not as widely renowned as Obama, and that his campaign is merely a weak imitation, or "shadow," of Obama's own. The second half of the line can be considered a reference to Trump's frequently mocked tan, which would suggest he does not spend much time in the shade. Trump is well-known for being the recipient of large amounts of backlash, or being "thrown shade"; he does not like to be disrespected, especially by those from Obama's campaign. Alternatively, Trump, who is often accused of racism, is indirectly commenting on Obama's race, referring to his shade of skin.)

Joe Biden:

The pain of losing loved ones is something I have seen,

(As mentioned above, Biden's first wife and daughter were killed in a car crash in 1972, while his eldest son, Beau, passed away due to brain cancer in 2015. Biden says he knows the pain of these experiences on the campaign trail and in debates to empathize with those with health care issues, and more recently, the loss of lives due to COVID-19.)

So I know how you must have felt when they killed Jeffrey Epstein!

(Jeffrey Epstein was a businessman who was outed as a child sex offender/trafficker. Epstein had connections with many high-profile individuals including Trump, former President Bill Clinton, and Prince Andrew. Trump and Epstein have been seen together several times, and in 2002, Trump referred to him as a "terrific guy" who "likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side," a comment that appears in a different light after Epstein's outing as a pedophile. Epstein gained international notoriety after his arrest in 2019 on federal charges of sex trafficking, and his subsequent death in prison. While officially ruled a suicide, the mysterious circumstances surrounding his guards finding him dead in his jail cell caused a great deal of public skepticism about the cause of death, which resulted in the popular phrase and Internet meme, "Epstein didn't kill himself." This conspiracy theory is acknowledged by Biden's choice of words, which also states that he was killed. Biden sarcastically sympathizes with Trump, comparing his own tragic family history to the presumed feelings of loss that Trump has about Epstein.)

(Ooh!) Rap lyrics just ain't for you!

(Biden says that rapping isn't one of Trump's strengths.)

You should stick to love letters for Kim Jong-un!

(In 2017, Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un had a feud because Trump, fearing that Kim Jong-un was testing out more missiles, stated "North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen. He has been very threatening ... and as I said they will be met with fire, fury and frankly power, the likes of which this world has never seen before." Kim then responded by calling Trump a frightened dog, exarcerbating the tension between the two. This feud lasted until 2018 when Trump met Kim in Singapore, becoming the first U.S. President to establish diplomacy with North Korea. Afterwards, their relationship improved to the point that at one rally, Trump claimed, "He wrote me beautiful letters, and they're great letters. We fell in love." Biden criticized Trump on the campaign trail for this quote. Continuing his previous line, Biden suggests to Trump that he should continue kissing up to Kim, claiming writing letters for him is better than him writing raps.)

You're a wrestling heel! Nothing 'bout you is real!

(Among his many exploits over the years, Trump famously appeared in several professional wrestling skits, which both Biden and Trump's previous opponent Hillary Clinton have commented on in ERB. In wrestling terminology, a "heel" is a wrestler who portrays a villainous character that opposes the "face," or heroic character. Thus, Biden compares the election to a wrestling matchup due to Trump's wrestling appearances, where Biden is the "face" and Trump is the "heel." He also references the scripted nature of professional wrestling, calling Trump a fraud. Biden mentioning wrestling right after mentioning Kim Jong-un might be a callback to Hulk Hogan and Macho Man vs Kim Jong-il, where Kim's father, Kim Jong-il, rapped against two professional wrestlers, Hulk Hogan and Macho Man Randy Savage.)

Bitch, you didn't even really write The Art of the Deal!

(Trump: The Art of the Deal (more commonly known as just The Art of the Deal) was a book credited to Donald Trump and journalist Tony Schwartz, which offered business advice and helped Trump become a household name in the United States. However, it was later revealed by Schwartz and the book's publisher, Howard Kaminsky, that Trump in fact had no role in writing the book, with Schwartz going as far as saying it should be "recategorized as fiction." Continuing from the last line, in which he called Trump fake, Biden points out that the very thing that led to Trump's fame was something he did not do himself.)

But you tapped into the rage of Red Mad Hatters!

(Trump supporters often wear red hats with the slogan, "Make America Great Again," for which they are also called MAGA hats. The Mad Hatter is an eccentric character that wears a big hat from the Lewis Carroll story, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Trump often stirs up his fans, so Biden says Trump works up a rage from his supporters, which he likens to the Mad Hatter because of their insane antics and red hats.)

Well, let me tell you, Trump, all lies matter!

(The phrase "All Lives Matter" has often been used as a rebuttal to the Black Lives Matter movement by its detractors, many of which are Trump supporters. Biden instead tells Trump that "all lies matter," referring to Trump's continuous lying to state his lies will cost him the election.)

(Ugh!) I don't want to defund no police! I picked a DA for my VP!

(Biden continues his verse by debunking Trump's lies. Trump accused Biden in their first debate of intending to defund the police in response to the police brutality towards African-Americans. Biden denied these accusations, stating he did not want to defund the police. Biden selected Kamala Harris to be his running mate. Harris previously worked as a San Francisco's District Attorney, which is a profession in law enforcement like the police. Biden further denies he wants to defund the police as he selected a District Attorney (DA) to be his Vice President (VP). Harris was also known to be tough on crime, further showing that Biden would not go to an extreme like defunding the police as Trump claims.)

I'm not a communist; I'm not a socialist! I'm just an old-ass man with some decency!

(Trump often accused Biden of being a communist and socialist, which are hard left-wing stances in politics. Biden, who throughout his career has most often been identified as a moderate, denies these accusations, saying that his policies are not radical, but simply basic decency, implying that Trump lacks even that. Biden calls himself an "old-ass man" because he is the oldest person to ever become the presidential nominee of a political party, at 78 years old.)

Donald Trump:

Wrong!

(Trump interrupts Biden to deny what he says. This is a reference to his conduct during the presidential debates, where he interrupted Biden numerous times.)

Joe Biden:

No matter what you try to say, global warming ain't canceled!

(Trump made many controversial statements about global warming and anthropogenic climate change, even once calling it a "hoax." Trump had an active Twitter presence prior to his accounts on social media platforms being suspended, and Twitter is well-known in meme culture for "canceling" figures. Biden says global warming should not be ignored as Trump says, indicating that it will not be canceled to be forgotten.)

You pulled out of Paris, should've pulled out of Stormy Daniels!

(Trump pulled out of the Paris Agreement for combating climate change. Stormy Daniels is a porn star that Trump had an affair with who later sued him. To "pull out" is a sexual innuendo in that Trump should have pulled his penis out of Stormy Daniels and avoided having sex with her while he was already married instead of pulling out of the Paris Agreement.)

I ain't sleepy; I'm tired

(Trump gave Biden the insulting nickname "Sleepy Joe." Biden says he is not sleepy like Trump slanders him to be and only feels weary from what he states in the next line.)

Of you, Donald Trump. You're fired!

(Biden expresses his weariness of dealing with Trump's behavior and administration, and uses his famous catchphrase from The Apprentice, "You're fired," against him.)

Donald Trump:

​​​​​The only thing getting fired on my watch is tear gas from law enforcement.

(Trump fired tear gas on the protesters from Black Lives Matter groups at the White House on June 1, 2020. This was ordered by Trump from law enforcement officials, and Trump did not feel remorse from this backlash just as it is shown in the battle. In response to the "You're fired" line, Trump says the tear gas will be the only firing being done rather than him being fired from the presidency.)

I'll keep America great! You'll unleash Antifa and keep America like Portland! Sad!

(Trump adopted the phrase "Keep America Great" as his campaign slogan in 2020. Antifa is an anti-fascist action and left-wing political movement in the United States. Trump listed Antifa as a terrorist group due to their disapproval of his presidency, and he believes Biden would allow this movement to continue to run free in the country. Trump also references riots in Portland, Oregon that began when George Floyd was killed by police in Minneapolis; at one point during the summer, protests were so far out-of-hand that Trump sent in a secret police detachment, to which city leaders and residents vehemently objected. Trump then followed up the incident with unmarked forces sent to other primarily Democratic-run cities. Trump also adds "Sad!" as an interjection, just as he did on a few tweets by ending them with it.)

Ain't nothing gonna beat me! No person, woman, man, camera, TV!

("Person, woman, man, camera, TV" is a phrase Trump used several times when describing the Montreal Cognitive Assessment test for detecting cognitive impairment in a Fox News interview with Marc Siegel on July 22, 2020. At the time Trump began accusing Biden of exhibiting dementia, Trump's own mental health was called into question, and he revealed that he took the assessment sometime in 2018. Trump has often been mocked for his repetition of the phrase and his claims about how easy the test was for him despite it being a simple test. Under the context of this line, however, it may also allude to a number of Trump's fierce squabbles, especially those against Hillary Clinton, his 2016 opponent for presidency, and various cable news networks (i.e. camera, TV news institutions). Trump uses this phrase to say no one and nothing is going to beat him.)

Meh! They impeached me. I still walked out of DC looking peachy!

(Trump was impeached in December 2019 on charges of abuse of power and obstruction of justice for his role in an appropriations scandal involving Ukrainian officials to gain inside information on Joe Biden and his son Hunter's business dealings in Ukraine. However, on February 5th, 2020, Trump was acquitted of both charges. Trump says that despite his impeachment, he still walked out of Washington D.C. looking and feeling very satisfactory, or "peachy," as in the end, the trial was in his favor.)

You got the sloppy, Joe, but no beef!

(This is a play on words for sloppy joes, a sandwich consisting of beef/pork, onions and sauce, as Trump points out that Biden is sloppy, but he has no beef or guts to go up against Trump. Trump could also be stating that Biden does not have the capacity to actually "beef" with him, or put up a substantial fight when against him.)

The only white privilege I see are those teeth!

(White privilege is the societal privilege that benefits white people over non-white people in some societies, particularly if they are otherwise under the same social, political, or economic circumstances. Critical race theory popularized the term. Trump signed an executive order banning federal contractors from applying critical race theory in their diversity training programs. One of Biden's distinctive facial characteristics are his notably white teeth, occasionally speculated to be dental veneers. Trump, not believing in critical race theory, says Biden's only white privilege is being able to supposedly afford cosmetic dental operations.)

Maybe teach your son a thing or two about life,

(Trump says Biden should teach his son about how life really works, and Hunter Biden became a topic of attention for conservative news outlets that showed his corrupt business dealings and history of substance abuse. This could also be a play on "pro-life," a term referring to people who oppose abortion, as Trump is known for his anti-abortion views and was the first president to attend the annual March for Life, while Biden is a supporter of women's abortion rights.)

Like there's no hunting season for your dead brother's wife!

(Hunting season is a time of the year in which animals that can be hunted are more abundant to kill by hunters, and this is a play on words for Hunter's name. After the passing of Beau Biden in 2015, Hunter began dating his brother's widow Hallie Biden in 2016 until they broke up in 2018. Trump says Joe Biden allowing his son to do this after his other son passed away would be shameful.)

You and your mask and your Knight Rider shades

(Knight Rider was a famous TV show starring David Hasselhoff where he wore his iconic aviator sunglasses. On top of wearing the same types of glasses, Trump made comments about Biden wearing a mask all the time during the first debate due to COVID-19, with his supporters being critical of wearing a mask at all, being called "Anti-Maskers.")

Are getting revoked like you're Roe versus Wade!

(Roe v. Wade is a famous landmark decision of the U.S. Supreme Court protecting a pregnant woman's liberty to choose an abortion without strict government restriction. Trump publicly opposed the precedent and issued laws that have a harsher stance against abortion, intending to nominate like-minded justices to overturn the ruling in the future. Trump says Biden's aforementioned accessories are being taken from him just as Trump hopes to take away abortion rights by revoking Roe v. Wade.)

There's no Blue Wave! Forget it, not coming!

(Trump aims to win re-election for a second term, thus denying the possibility of a Democratic blue wave, a term used to refer to a widespread win for Democrats in their respective elections.)

It's like I tell criminals, Joe: stop running!

(There has been recent awareness spread around African-American criminals being killed by the police. Trump says they should stop running from the police to avoid worse actions just like Biden should stop his run for presidency.)

Joe Biden:

Was Breonna Taylor running? Hmm? You dog-whistling fool!

(Biden fires back, using Breonna Taylor as an example of police brutality, racism, and how people accused of crimes that they are completely innocent of are never safe from anyone who chooses the law over morality and emotion to cause harm. Breonna Taylor was a 26-year-old black Kentucky nurse who was fatally shot when police burst into her apartment on a "no-knock" warrant as part of an investigation into a drug-dealing operation. She was only sleeping when it happened and was stationary in her home, which is the opposite of what Donald Trump suggests they cease. Dog-whistling is the use of coded language in political messaging without being obvious about it, which Trump was accused of doing to pander to racists in America.)

I think your daddy would finally be proud of you: he was a racist asshole, too!

(Biden says that Trump's father, Fred Trump, would be proud of his son's racist attitude. Fred had a long history of discrimination towards African-Americans regarding housing, including being sued in 1973 for systematically discriminating against black people in housing rentals, and also being detained at a Ku Klux Klan rally in 1927.)

Russian hackers:

Что ты сделал?

(The battle is interrupted by hackers from Russia, who many news outlets and federal investigation organizations accused of being involved in helping Trump get elected in 2016 to favor their country, and it was reported that they planned the same in 2020. One of the hackers was surprised by them appearing on the screen, asking the other hacker, "What did you do?")

Joe Biden:

What's this malarkey?

(Biden has a particular fondness for using the word "malarkey," which means nonsense and is otherwise a replacement for more obscene language.)

Russian hackers:

Ох ебать!

(The hacker responded by panicking and shouting "Oh, fuck!" as they disconnect from the battle.)

Joe Biden:

Keep at it and you'll end up in jail, hoss!

(Biden responds to the Russians interfering with the battle by warning Trump that if he continues this along with his other crimes, he will end up getting arrested. Hoss is Southern slang for a big man, and Trump is the second-tallest president and known for his bulky figure.)

I'll take you down like I'm you, and you're a mailbox!

(Trump heavily criticized mail-in voting as he believed it would have a negative effect on election results, which more states were heavily recommending citizens to use due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In August 2020, he admitted to blocking federal funding to the U.S. Postal Service to discourage more mail-in ballots. The Postal Service was also removing underutilized mail drop boxes as of the date indicated, prompting public outcry and a subsequent Congressional inquiry as to whether Trump directed Postmaster General Louis DeJoy to remove the mailboxes. Though the cutbacks at USPS were already in progress, DeJoy later committed to halt the takedown of postal equipment until after the election. Biden says he will defeat Trump in the same way Trump wanted to remove mailboxes to impede mail-in ballots.)

From all your wives to the SATs,

(Trump has been married three times. The Scholastic Assessment Tests (SATs) are used to measure children's educational achievement and readiness for post-secondary schooling.)

Everything you ever did, you just had to cheat!

(Trump cheated on his wives with other women, and Biden mentions this in conjunction with the accusations that Trump cheated on his SATs. Trump's niece, Mary Trump, revealed in her book Too Much and Never Enough that Trump's sister, Maryanne Trump Barry, claimed that Donald paid someone to take his SATs for him instead. Biden says that Trump has done nothing but cheat, making it his only way of winning the election.)

'Cause you're too insecure to even look like a loser!

(Biden claims Trump's narcissistic attitude actually masks his insecurity. Trump has the mindset of always acting like a winner because he sees losing as a weakness, so Biden calls out his lack of dignity to even accepting losses.)

You're the worst damn Republican since Herbert Hoover!

(The stock market crash of 1929 and the Great Depression began during the Hoover administration, which sullied his reputation to the point where shanty towns for the homeless were named Hooverville after his failure to handle the Great Depression. Hoover's bad handling of the Great Depression caused him to lose his re-election bid to Franklin D. Roosevelt. Biden claims Trump is even worse than him and has the worst handling of the presidency from any Republican since Hoover. This is also a play on words referencing the Hoover Dam.)

But you scooped up a sycophantic, homophobe Hoosier,

(For his presidency, Trump chose former Indiana governor Mike Pence as his Vice President; people born and raised or living in Indiana like Pence are known as Hoosiers. Pence was known for being extremely loyal to Trump, but many people believed Pence decided to be VP as an easier way to become president rather than sincerely admiring Trump, making him sycophantic. Pence is known for advocating anti-LGBTQ laws such as shock therapy. Also, during this line, a fly landed on Biden's head, referencing the fly that was on Pence's head during the Vice-Presidential Debate.)

And became the Constitution's domestic abuser!

(Trump's impeachment came from him breaking laws outlined in the Constitution. A domestic abuser is someone who abuses their own family, and as a private citizen, Trump was accused of domestic abuse towards his wives, so Biden compares that to Trump abusing his power.)

200,000 deaths lying at your door!

(At the time of the election, the U.S. suffered over 200,000 deaths due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with figures still climbing, and Biden attributes this to Trump's poor management of the crisis.)

You think they're suckers like McCain and the Marine Corps!

(Trump had a rocky relationship with U.S. Senator and former Presidential nominee John McCain, who was a close friend of Biden despite having opposing politics. When describing McCain's time as a war prisoner of the Vietnam War, Trump infamously uttered, "I like people who weren't captured." Trump also came under heavy scrutiny in September 2020 when reports came that he canceled a trip to the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery because he did not find it important to honor the dead, calling the deceased soldiers "losers" and "suckers." However, multiple individuals have disputed against said allegations, and claimed the real reason behind the cancellation was due to rain and that those allegations were allegedly plot to smear the President.[1] Biden claims that Trump downplayed the threats of the virus and how it affected the population is similar to what he supposedly said about the deceased soldiers and McCain.)

Sometimes I can't tell for which side you're rootin'!

(Biden says that sometimes he doesn't know what Trump is actually fighting for, as both Democrats and Republicans have criticized Trump, and many of Trump's actions are for his own self-benefit.)

When we go high, you go down on Putin!

(At the 2016 Democratic National Convention, former First Lady Michelle Obama's famous phrase against Trump's remarks – "When they go low, we go high" – has become something of a slogan for exercising restraint in the face of frustration. Trump consistently expressed a personal affinity for Russian president Vladimir Putin since taking office. In one particular instance, Trump said he believed Putin that Russia didn't intervene in the 2016 election while American intelligences say they did. Biden uses the phrase to say that Trump not only goes low, but he "goes down on" Putin, which means he sucks his dick.)

(Ugh!) Truth is, you're scared to lose!

(Biden claims that he thinks Trump is actually just scared of losing to him. It is also suspected that if Trump is no longer president, he would not have immunity for crimes he could have committed, which can lead to his arrest.)

You got nothing in the banks 'cept IOUs!

(For Trump, the German bank company Deutsche Bank fueled numerous risky loans and allowed him to continue expanding his business empire after a number of major bankruptcies. The New York Times also published an article based on tax-return data they received which reveals that Trump avoided paying taxes for years due to the massive amounts of debt accumulated for his company. Trump disputed this, but he still has yet to reveal his tax returns to the public despite promising to do so before he was elected president. Biden says that all Trump's money in the bank is actually made up of IOUs, an informal document acknowledging debt pronounced as "I owe you.")

Y-y-y-y-you whine about ballots like a bitch,

(Biden has often been mocked for his stammer, but here he uses it for his line. Biden mocks Trump's statements about the ballots being rigged while providing no evidence, only stating this in hopes to undermine the election in case he loses. Trump is also known for his constant whining and complaining of the matter on Twitter.)

But the only thing that's rigged is taxes for the rich!

(Trump's tax cuts helped the rich pay less than the working class for the first time. Biden intended to increase taxes for higher income citizens when he became president. It could also reference Trump's penultimate line in Donald Trump vs Hillary Clinton: "Cause this whole system's rigged, and we all know the riggers!")

Look, you're a freeloader! Change your name to Tramp!

(Biden says Trump takes advantage of people's generosity but gives nothing back in return. Biden thus makes a pun on Trump's name and calls him a tramp, a homeless person who wanders from place to place, as many are often freeloaders.)

My campaign's ramping up; you can't get down a ramp!

(Biden claims that his campaign is on the rise while referencing Trump walking slowly down a ramp off the stage addressing graduating cadets at West Point on June 13th, which resulted in many people mocking him for simply struggling to go down a ramp.)

I'm pulling away faster than your wife's hand!

(There have been filmed instances where Trump's wife, Melania Trump, pushed his hand away whenever he reached to hold her hand while they were walking together, suggesting that even Trump's own wife despises him. Biden says that in the same way Melania's hand quickly avoided her husband's, his own campaign is gaining more momentum with voters, pulling him ahead in the polls.)

For the love of democracy, will you shut up, man?

(In the midst of this election's first presidential debate, which quickly became infamous for Trump's many interruptions, Biden stopped a Trump rebuttal by saying, "Will you shut up, man?" This became an oft-quoted line in the days following, with Biden's campaign capitalizing on its success by incorporating the slogan into merchandise. Once again, Biden uses this quote against Trump to remind him that even though he is President of the United States, he has no complete authority over anything he feels like talking over, and shutting up would benefit democracy as Trump's statements would lead undermining the rights of citizens.)
