Social media users cheered as Democratic President Joe Biden masterfully trolled former Republican President Donald Trump's big "announcement" with a few announcements of his own.
Earlier, Trump announced he'd launched a new line of collectible digital trading cards priced at $99 each that feature images of him depicted as a muscular superhero with laser beams shooting from his eyes.
President Biden, not to be outdone, decided to post some "announcements" too, though these were of significantly more importance than the former President's foray into the NFT—or nonfungible token—market.
He noted via his official Twitter account that inflation has eased, that he just signed the Respect for Marriage Act (RMA), which requires the United States federal government and all U.S. states and territories to recognize the validity of same-sex and interracial civil marriages in the United States.
He also pointed out that his administration had just recently secured the release of basketball player Brittney Griner from a Russian penal colony, that gas prices "are lower than a year ago," and that the state of Arizona is now seeing 10,000 "new high-paying jobs."

It's safe to say that Trump''s "announcement" pales in comparison to Biden's accomplishments—all of which have been noted just these last couple of weeks.
People couldn't help but appreciate Biden's masterful and funny trolling.
Trump had posted on his troubled social media platform Truth Social that he would be making a “major announcement” without providing any details.
Some had speculated that his announcement would be related to the Speaker race currently dividing Republicans in the House of Representatives, where a faction of right-wing extremists has refused to support House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy's bid for the Speaker position once Republicans regain control of the House in January.
The cards were the subject of considerable ridicule online, including from Republicans who'd criticized Trump's rather inactive 2024 presidential campaign.
As of Friday morning, Trump was claiming the collection of trading cards had already "Sold Out."
