Twitter is censoring another meme mocking Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden, just a day after it blocked a satirical video about the candidate posted by President Donald Trump.

The new meme is a mock campaign ad featuring Biden, with the slogan “His brain? No. His heart.”

The meme is a subtle swipe at Biden’s increasing propensity for gaffes and confused statements. These “Biden brain freezes” have been covered extensively by Breitbart News, and continue to accumulate.

Yesterday, Twitter began locking prominent users who tweeted the meme out of their accounts, making them delete the meme before restoring access. Affected accounts include Nevada GOP congressional primary candidate Mindy Robinson, columnist Anna Slatz, Newsmax host John Cardillo, and the pro-Bernie YouTuber “shoe0nhead.”

Liberal tech publication the Verge, which notified Twitter of the meme, received a response from a company spokesperson who confirmed that the satirical image violated its policies.

“Our enforcement team determined that this Tweet violates our Election Integrity Policy. They’re taking appropriate steps to enforce our policy across the service,” the spokesperson told The Verge.

Twitter’s latest intervention on behalf of Biden comes within 48 hours of the company removing a satirical video about the Democratic candidate posted by President Trump. Despite maintaining a policy that world leaders will not be censored, Twitter responded to a copyright complaint about the video, which consisted of an old Allstate advert edited to include one of Biden’s many gaffes.

A Twitter spokesman, attempting to explain the censorship of the president, told Breitbart News “Per our copyright policy, we respond to valid copyright complaints sent to us by a rights holder or their authorized representatives.”
