With his fiancé Tim Malone portraying President Joe Biden, the pair intended to give a lighthearted nod to the current White House occupants. However, the response they received was anything but uniform.
The image, showcased on Lemon’s Instagram, was nothing if not attention-grabbing. Lemon, a 57-year-old man, donned a tailored blue suit, a pearl necklace, and the hairstyle of the Vice President.
The caption, “We did it, Tim!!! Happy Halloween,” mirrored the post-election phone call between the two political leaders in 2020.
But the visual of Lemon as Harris dominated conversations. Many were quick to jump on the post.
If I had to see this, so do you.
