President Joe Biden caught some serious blowback for what many criticized as a tone-deaf play on a meme from the Tina Fey comedy “Mean Girls.”

The joke stems from a scene in the film in which the titular “mean girls,” played by Rachel McAdams and Lacey Chabert, pull up next to the unsuspecting new girl — played by Lindsay Lohan. The tagline McAdams shouts? “Get in, loser, we’re going shopping!”

On Monday, October 3 — which also happened to be “Mean Girls Day” — President Biden posted a photo of himself in his 1967 Corvette convertible — and included the caption, “Get in, folks. We’re building a better America.”

But critics weren’t impressed, and immediately took to Twitter to voice their displeasure.

“Anytime a politician uses the word ‘folks’ I pat my back pocket to make sure I still have my wallet,” @RotNScoundrel tweeted in response.

“Is that electric?” John Jackson asked, referencing the Biden administration’s repeated pushes to get more Americans into electric vehicles.

“We can’t afford groceries, gas & goods and you post a picture of yourself in an expensive, gas powered vehicle claiming you are doing a good job. You are completely out of touch with Americans. You are a hypocritical ass,” @RetiredNikitaM made it clear that she was not a fan.

Even a few who claimed to lean Left voiced their complaints — like @Bidentracking (“Tracking Biden from the left”), who tweeted: “Hasn’t increased the minimum wage, hasn’t legalized marijuana, hasn’t introduced a public option, held the largest oil and gas sale in US history. What better America?”

Former Hillary Clinton aide Peter Daou also took a swing at Biden, adding, “Kids are still in cages. Hundreds of thousands are homeless. Millions lack health care. Tens of millions live paycheck to paycheck. Entire cities don’t have clean water. The climate emergency threatens our existence. But hey …”

“14 miles per gallon. The elite make their own rules,” Breitbart’s Joel Pollak remarked.

Another account posted a checklist of things that did not indicate a “better America,” including everything from “high gas prices” and “inflation/recession” to the shortage of baby formula and rapidly rising violent crime.

“Yes, everyone get into your expensive, antique and oh by the way GAS POWERED convertibles! And don’t let anyone tell you you’re oblivious to the financial pain average Americans are feeling. I mean, we all love $6-$7 gas right?” California State Senator Melissa Melendez (R) added.
