Comedian Tim Allen cracked what most people would consider to be a “dad joke” about President Joe Biden’s recent “60 Minutes” interview — and all he got for his trouble was a steady stream of hate from the Left.
The “Last Man Standing” star, who has taken a lot of criticism for not toeing the woke Hollywood line, appeared to take a poke at Biden’s cognitive state in the tweet he shared on Monday afternoon.
“Biden was on 60 Minutes. I heard he asked how long the show was,” Allen tweeted.

Critics immediately swarmed Allen, attacking his personal politics and bringing up his prior drug-related conviction and jail time.
“Before his middle-aged rebrand as a fun guy, Tim Allen was a drug dealer arrested with over a pound of cocaine. He avoided prison by snitching on everyone around him. Others did Tim’s prison time,” @therealhoarse claimed.
A number referenced Allen’s time — and repeated comedic grunts — on the hit 90’s sitcom “Home Improvement.”

“You’ve really fallen off, bro. Go back to monkey noises. You nailed that,” actor Christopher Titus commented.
“Tim Allen is a Trumper seditious criminal domestic terrorist! Good to know!” added @lisarules.
“That was 59 more minutes more than it took you to narc on your drug buddies back in the day. F***’n snitch,” came from @johnnyblkshrt.
“Friendly reminder this guy trafficked cocaine for Pablo Escobar’s cartel. If a black man did what he did, that brother would still be in prison to this very day. F*** outta here old man,” @Chukwu77 tweeted.
Actor Saverio Guerra added, “I heard Tim Allen got arrested for selling 2 lbs of cocaine, and he asked how much it weighed!”
“What a shame. I loved THE SANTA CLAUSE,” @ItHasBegun2016 tweeted. “Now, I choose not to support this man or any of his projects including THE SANTA CLAUSES on @DisneyPlus. He’s showing us who he is, who he supports & what he believes. My money will not support treasonous grifters. @Disney @santaclauses.”

“Behold, the last grasp at relevancy from a washed-up hack. Poor fella is resorting to ‘conservative comedy’ now, which, lets be honest, is exactly as compelling as his cocaine fueled, 90s-esque man-grunting. Well done, Tim Allen, you’ve become even more of a dated cliche,” came from @shutupamanda.
Several conservatives responded as well, pointing out the disparity between Allen’s action and the Left’s reaction. “Tim Allen makes a dad joke at Biden’s expense and the left is losing their s*** like he just committed treason,” @whoisjanegalt tweeted.
