‘Biden was on 60 minutes….He asked how long the show was’: Toy Story Star Tim Allen Trolls President Joe Biden, Gets Blasted Online

Joe Biden and Tim Allen

Tim Allen, a conservative actor, has come under criticism for a joke he made about President Joe Biden on Monday. Some people on social media were angered by the joke, while others claimed the Home Improvement star needed to focus on his comedy material.

Allen’s joke was to the president’s appearance on the long-running CBS show 60 Minutes on Sunday, during which Biden celebrated the end of the COVID-19 pandemic and hinted that he might not run for re-election in 2024.

Tim Allen, who considers himself a member of the relatively small “conservative Hollywood” club, seems to be anticipating such an appearance. The next day, he posted a new wisecrack on Twitter.

“Biden was on 60 minutes,” Allen tweeted. “I heard he asked how long the show was.” The internet is collectively groaning. Allen’s post instantly went viral, thanks largely to his critics.

Tim Allen might have to face the consequences

Some Twitter users pointed out that Republican President Donald Trump once rushed through a 60-minute interview, with some accounts claiming he “stormed” the set. Others accused Allen of being “disrespectful” to the current president.

“And that, kids, is why Tim Allen isn’t the voice of Buzz Lightyear anymore,” someone else wrote in a tweet. “He’s completely Scott Baio. Or is it Kevin Sorbo? Meh, what’s the difference.”

Many conservatives and Allen fans were outraged in June when Captain America actor Chris Evans was cast as Buzz Lightyear in the character’s latest origin film. Everybody Loves Raymond actress Patricia Heaton applauded Light Year directors and claimed they “castrated” the role by not casting Allen.
