Biden Campaign Selling 'Would You Shut Up, Man' T-Shirts Following First Debate | 22 Words

Following the disastrous presidential debate on Tuesday, the Biden Campaign team has decided to make the best out of a bad situation...

By cashing in on Biden's now-infamous "shut up, man" slogan, of course.

After being constantly interrupted throughout the first debate, Biden finally snapped and told President Trump to "shut up", much to the delight and horror of transfixed viewers.

The internet quickly descended into a frenzy...

And, ever since, Biden's unexpected comeback is all anyone has been able to talk about.

So, of course...

The Biden campaign team has wasted no time in using it very much to their advantage.

Now, as we very well expected, the first presidential debate of the year was quick to turn ugly.

Trump V Biden was never going to be a civilized affair, but the scenes that unfolded on Tuesday evening were nothing short of brutal.

Tensions between the candidates have been bubbling for some time now...

And it seems that their mutual feelings of resentment have finally reached a boiling point.

There were many eye-opening moments from the ninety-minute debate.

For example...

The President was grilled on the newly surfaced allegations regarding his income tax.

Asked if it was true that he paid just $750 in income tax in 2016, as reported by The New York Times last week, Trump said, without hesitation: "I paid millions of dollars in taxes, of income tax." Biden used this opportunity to ask for evidence of these tax payments, adding that Trump "takes advantage of the tax code."

Trump was also asked to condemn white supremacist groups...

But instead chose to focus on the left. He said: "Sure I'm willing to do that, but almost everything I see is from the left-wing. I'm willing to do anything. I want to see peace." And, when asked to give this group of people a name, he responded with "Proud Boys." Proud Boys, a neo-Nazi organization, appeared to use Trump's "stand back, stand by" call in a new logo posted on Telegram shortly after the debate.

The President did provide some good news with regards to a coronavirus vaccine, however.

When Biden pointed out that 200,000 Americans have died during the pandemic as a result of the President's "lack of plan", Trump retaliated by insisting that "millions would have died if Biden was in charge." He then added that the US is "weeks away" from a vaccine, and his administration had done a "great job."

Biden's son, Hunter, was then dragged back into the firing line.

The President brought up Biden's son, claiming the mayor of Moscow's wife gave him millions of dollars and raising questions over his links with Ukraine. He also mentioned Hunter's drug problems.

Clearly, his words about Hunter hit a nerve with Biden.

"His family we can talk about all night," Biden clapped back, adding that "it's hard to get any word in with this clown - excuse me, this person". The pair also clashed over Biden's now-deceased son, Beau, and his military service.

The insults continued to flow.

"Everything he's saying here is simply a lie, everybody knows he's a liar," Biden said during an exchange about healthcare. He also called Trump "the worst president this country has ever had."

And, of course, President Trump didn't take them quietly.

Not to be outdone, Trump got in plenty of digs as well, firing at his opponent: "There's nothing smart about you Joe. Forty-seven years, you've done nothing."

But, out of their many valiant attempts to slander one another...

via: Getty

There was one moment that stood out amongst the rest.

Because, as you may have already heard...

via: Getty

Biden actually told the president to "shut up."

Yep, it's something many dream of doing one day.

The moment came during the first segment of the debate on the topic of the Supreme Court.

The pair continued to talk over each other as Wallace tried - unsuccessfully - to keep them in line.

Wallace asked Biden if he was willing to tell the American people whether he supported either ending the Senate filibuster or adding more justices to the bench. Biden responded by saying he would not take a position on the issue and instead urged people to go out and vote.

But, as Biden was talking...

Trump repeatedly asked him, "Are you going to pack the court?" "He doesn't want to answer the question," Trump said. "I'm not going to answer the question," Biden responded. "Why won't he answer the question?" Trump said as he continued to talk over his opponent.

Biden, unable to complete his answer, then shut his eyes and said exasperatedly, "Would you shut up, man?"

He then followed up with, "This is so unpresidential," after which Wallace ended the segment.

Now, not everyone was too impressed with the Democrat's response...

With many finding the moment to be "unprofessional" on Biden's part.

However, for the most part...

People have found a whole new level of respect for Biden, and have even called his words the "highlight" of the evening.

So it would only be right that he use the whole situation to his advantage, right?

The Biden campaign team has managed to get actual "shut up, man" merchandise rustled up just in time for the upcoming elections.

Yep, you can now buy a T-shirt emblazoned with President Trump's face...

Accompanied by Biden's iconic "shut up, man" slogan. And, to make this situation even more ridiculous, The Hill reported that the merch had been listed online before the debate had even ended.

Here's a sneak peek.

It's quite something, isn't it?

This tee is also up for grabs...
