Late-night host Stephen Colbert jabbed former Vice President Joe Biden Tuesday night for botching an opportunity to best President Trump’s MAGA campaign slogan.
Appearing on “Good Morning America” on Tuesday, anchor Robin Roberts asked Biden how he plans to compete with President Trump’s iconic “Make America Great Again” slogan that catapulted him to success in 2016. “The president has a motto: ‘Make America Great Again.’ Do you have one?” Robin Roberts asked Biden.
The vice president did not exactly give a catchy answer and threw out a litany of potential campaign slogans that would not really work as an acronym like MAGA. “Make America Moral Again,” he told Robin Roberts. “Make America return to the essence of who we are, the dignity of the country, the dignity of people and treating our people with dignity and this God-awful deliberate division that’s being taken in order to separate people to aggrandize his own power.”

After playing a clip of Biden’s jumbled reply, Colbert quipped, “Move over, MAGA,” and then attempted to create an acronym out of his answer.
“MAGA’s over because Biden’s coming at you with: MAMAMARTTEOWWATDOTC…” Colbert continued, in a moment noted by Fox News. “A little awkward to say, I’ll admit, but it’s going to look fantastic on his hat.” (Read more from “Talk Show Host Mocks Biden’s Botched Campaign Slogan” HERE)
