Since the left can’t meme, the Biden campaign reportedly is seeking to hire someone to fix their inability to post quality memes online. 

According to The Washington Times, the Biden campaign posted a job ad looking for a partner to manage the campaign’s internet content.

The desired content includes memes. 

From The Washington Times:

Memes have played a big part in how presidential candidates have tried to get the word out about their campaigns.

The Biden campaign has lovingly adopted “Dark Brandon,” a meme that portrays an alter-ego of President Biden that was created after a reporter misheard chants of “F—- Joe Biden” as “Let’s Go, Brandon” as she was interviewing race winner Brandon Brown at the Talladega racetrack for the Xfinity series in 2021.

What started as a way for Biden haters to criticize the president eventually led to the Biden campaign leaning into the meme and embracing it. The profile picture for the Biden-Harris HQ page on X is the Dark Brandon picture, which shows Mr. Biden with red lasers shooting out of his eyes.

Most recently, Mr. Biden posted the Dark Brandon image after the Kansas City Chiefs won the Super Bowl. It was meant as a joke about a conspiracy theory that he would rig the contest for the Chiefs to win, which would lead to a Biden endorsement from pop star Taylor Swift, who is dating Chiefs’ player Travis Kelce.

“Just like we drew it up,” the post on X said in February.

X users reacted to Biden’s campaign searching for a meme manager:
