Democratic President Joe Biden elicited laughter from the audience attending a Virginia Beach event after he subtly mocked Georgia Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, who heckled him during his State of the Union address in February.
But instead of verbalizing his unfiltered criticism about the far-right conspiracy theorist–who repeatedly shouted including calling him a "liar" during his SOTU speech–Biden took the high road and gestured the sign of the cross.
The crowd howled in response, to which Biden–a devout Catholic–remarked:
“I’m gonna be good."

Biden has used the signing of the cross on a number of occasions for levity.
The gesture of Christian origin can represent a blessing or protection from evil–which may or may not have applied here.
Twitter was here for Biden's alter ego "Dark Brandon" invoking divine intervention during a time of need.
During his SOTU address, Biden touched on his GOP colleagues wanting "to take the economy hostage" unless he agreed to meet their economic demands.
But when he noted that some unnamed Republicans wanted to slash and sunset Medicare instead of making the wealthy pay their fair share, it prompted jeers from the disagreeable Republicans in the room–including from MTG, who bellowed out to him, "liar, liar!"
Biden went on to explain how Social Security and Medicare served as "a lifeline for millions of seniors."
"Americans have been paying into them with every single paycheck since they started working."
"So tonight, let’s all agree to stand up for seniors. Stand up and show them we will not cut Social Security. We will not cut Medicare."
He managed to receive support from both Democrats and Republicans who rose to their feet in support of American senior citizens and in defiance of the alleged proposals to slash Social Security and Medicare.
