Democratic President Joe Biden recently unveiled a humorous "Dark Brandon" meme in what appeared to be a lighthearted dig at his predecessor, former Republican President Donald Trump, after Special Counsel Jack Smith indicted Trump in connection with his widespread efforts to overturn the 2020 election result.

Trump faces four felony counts, including conspiracy to defraud the United States and conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding. The indictment further accuses him of attempting to exploit the events of January 6—the day a mob of his supporters attacked the United States Capitol on the false premise the election had been stolen—to further his quest to maintain power.

The meme was shared in a video posted on Twitter, where Biden was seen enjoying a cup of coffee from a "Dark Brandon" themed cup.

In the video, Biden quips, "I like my coffee dark," as he takes a sip from the specially designed cup, which features the meme depicting a seemingly intense and laser-eyed version of himself.

Twitter users loved it.

The term "Dark Brandon" originated as a play on the conservative phrase "Let's go Brandon," which arose after a newscaster mistakenly claimed a crowd at a NASCAR race was chanting "Let's go Brandon" when they were actually chanting "F**k Joe Biden."

While the meme initially served as a way for conservatives to criticize Biden, it has since been appropriated by his supporters.

The President has long embraced the meme—his campaign even sells T-shirts.

Biden's 2024 presidential campaign is selling "Dark Brandon" T-shirts and coffee mugs featuring a popular version of the meme, with Biden depicted as having glowing red eyes. The shirts are priced from $32 for a small to $35 for a 3XL and are said to be "best worn while vanquishing malarkey," a nod to Biden's "no malarkey" slogan from the 2020 campaign.
