On January 20th, President Joe Biden was officially sworn in as the 46th President of the United States after a chaotic 2020 campaign and deadly lame duck period.

Biden immediately began undoing some of the policies implemented by former President Donald Trump, signing dozens of executive orders in his first week to rejoin the Paris Climate Accord, suspend the Justice Department's renewal of private prison contracts, and a slew of other initiatives.

Trump's allies in Congress immediately accused Biden of trying to rule through executive orders.

Among those allies was Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), who tweeted that Biden couldn't "govern with a pen and phone."

Never mind that Blackburn made the case for a second Trump term during the 2020 campaign by criticizing Biden for supposed inaction throughout his career, but the Senator's criticism of Biden's executive orders is at odds with her support for the former President.

Trump issued 220 executive orders throughout his four years in office, more than half of those issued by his modern predecessors who served two terms and more than any other one-term President since Carter.

Blackburn's claim that Biden couldn't govern with "a pen and a phone" led Trump's critics to remind her how the 45th President governed.

They quickly brought attention to Blackburn's own record.

Blackburn isn't expected to criticize Trump's use of executive orders any time soon.
