- Boris Johnson's tweet which was screengrabbed and shared by @haveigotnews revealed that Johnson needs a new PA
- The tweet was an obvious draft which needed editing, only no editing took place and it was sent out "undercooked"
- Social media trolls leapt on the occasion to poke fun at the British PM and the fact the Pfizer was involved only egged on the trolls
Boris Johnson had egg on his face earlier this week when a tweet went out that clearly was half-baked.
In fact, it was so raw, Gordon Ramsay would have sent it back to the kitchen. The tweet in question was clearly a draft with instructions to edit.
What makes it worse, it wasn't a simple tweet it was a massive announcement on the progress of a Covid-19 vaccine.
The tweet, now deleted, read as follows:
"We finally have a vaccine! Huge congratulations to Pfizer/GlaxoSmithKline/Sanofi/Novartis. (Karen - please delete as appropriate, thanks)."
Luckily for us, @haveigotnews grabbed a screenshot and uploaded it with the following caption:
"Boris Johnson strongly urged to hire a new social media manager:"
Talk about awkward and whenever Pfizer can be squeezed into a joke people always go in one direction and the Twitter trolls took full advantage.
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that Former US president Barack Obama has been mentioned as the next possible UK ambassador when Joe Biden takes power in America.
This could be embarrassing for Boris Johnson who had accused Obama of being anti-British due to his Kenyan heritage. Boris was hauled over the coals, accused of racism in 2012 when he made the comment according to The New European.
He wrote: “Some said it was a snub to Britain. Some said it was a symbol of the part-Kenyan president’s ancestral dislike of the British empire – of which Churchill had been such a fervent defender".
In other news, the former US president, Barack Obama, congratulated US president-elect, Joe Biden, and his vice president-elect, Kamala Harris on their election win.
In a statement shared online, Obama wrote:
"I could not be prouder to congratulate our next President, Joe Biden, and our next First Lady, Jill Biden.
"I also couldn’t be prouder to congratulate Kamala Harris and Doug Emhoff for Kamala’s groundbreaking election as our next Vice President.
"In this election, under circumstances never experienced, Americans turned out in numbers never seen. And once every vote is counted, President-Elect Biden and Vice President-Elect Harris will have won a historic and decisive victory.
"We’re fortunate that Joe’s got what it takes to be President and already carries himself that way. Because when he walks into the White House in January, he’ll face a series of extraordinary challenges no incoming President ever has – a raging pandemic, an unequal economy and justice system, a democracy at risk, and a climate in peril.
