Some Twitter users did not appreciate comedian Tim Allen’s joke about President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview.
Earlier this week, Allen tweeted, “Biden was on 60 minutes. I heard he asked how long the show was.”

One tweet questioned whether someone can “lose their comedian’s license for lack of funny.”

This is one of the oldest “your mama” jokes. Next he will ask if Joe Biden asked how long Minute Rice takes to cook. https://t.co/iyWyBoRmA0

Allen previously opened up about his political views during an interview with Jimmy Kimmel.
“You’ve gotta be real careful around here,” Allen said.
He added, “You get beat up if don’t believe what everybody believes.”
The actor suggested this “is like ’30s Germany. I don’t know what happened. If you’re not part of the group, ‘you know what we believe is right,’ I go, ‘Well, I might have a problem with that.'”
Additionally, he recalled his experience attending the inauguration of former President Donald Trump.
“This government does stuff big,” Allen explained.
He continued, “I’ve never been to anything like that. Just so many people, and when they show up, you know, the ex-president gets in a helicopter and there’s jets and marines taking him this way and there’s parades, but it looks like a Cadillac parade, everything was just rows of Cadillacs. My kids were going, ‘Is this the parade?’ It’s like black Cadillac after black Cadillac and then a tractor.”
