Weeks after his cringeworthy reading of Cardi B's and Megan Thee Stallion's "WAP," conservative commentator Ben Shapiro is once again generating mockery on the internet.

His latest bomb was in reaction to President Donald Trump's dramatic return to the White House after three days of treatment for the virus that's killed over 200 thousand Americans.

Upon ascending the White House balcony, Trump defiantly removed his mask, despite still being infected with the virus, before entering the White House.

Shapiro tweeted that Trump's antibodies could hypothetically be what cures the virus—a la the Will Smith apocalypse film I Am Legend—and that Trump would go on to win all 50 states.

Spoiler alert:

I Am Legend concludes with Will Smith's character sacrificing his own life to protect the cure for the virus that's brought humankind to the brink of extinction.

The mockery was swift.






The next day, Shapiro returned to say the joke had gone over his followers' heads.

But unlike the cure in I Am Legend, the addendum did little to stop the burns.






Shapiro later followed up with critical tweets of Trump's campaign strategy so far.


Though some of Trump's supporters act as though the President has already recovered from the virus, others are emphasizing that he's been prescribed multiple steroids and is still in treatment.
