A bird appeared to have relieved itself on President Biden’s lapel Tuesday while he revealed plans to trim gas prices by roughly 10 cents a gallon as U.S. inflation strikes a 41-year high. Biden spoke about putting “rural America at the center of our efforts to build a future that’s made in America” when a white substance fell on his jacket - right above his American flag pin. The incident occurred inside what Biden jokingly referred to as a “giant barn” at a POET bioprocessing center in Menlo, Iowa.

Said another: “Move over Pence fly. It’s Biden shoulder bird poop,” referring to when a fly famously lingered on former Vice President Mike Pence’s head throughout his debate with Kamala Harris. At the address, Biden revealed a plan to extend the availability of E15, a gasoline that uses a 15 percent ethanol blend, from June 1 to September 15. The fuel, which is slightly cheaper than the E10 blend sold year-round, is banned in the summer because of its volatility in the heat and throughout peak travel months. There is also some concern that E15 contributes to smog, though renewable fuel advocates dispute this assertion.

Later in the afternoon, White House Communications Director Kate Bedingfield tweeted: “If you guys knew your way around a corn silo at all, you’d know it was corn.” The address took place at a POET bioprocessing plant in Iowa. POET LLC is a biofuel company headquartered in South Dakota that specializes in creating bioethanol. Biden announced the plant turns over 40 million bushels of local corn into 130 million gallons of ethanol each year. “It’s kind of unfortunate that the bird that just s*** on Joe Biden missed his forehead by literal inches. That would have been absolutely historic. The gold standard of memes,” one Twitter user joked. Over 98 percent of U.S. gasoline contains ethanol, typically E10, which is 10 percent ethanol and 90 percent gasoline. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, ethanol oxygenates the fuel and reduces air pollution. [tweet_embed] April 15, 2022[/tweet_embed] On Tuesday, Biden declared that the sale of E15, which contains 15 percent ethanol - will be allowed through the summer to assist and lower fuel expenses, which have reached an average of $4.10 per gallon in the U.S. “For working families—families eager to travel and visit their loved ones—that will add up to real savings,” according to a fact sheet released Tuesday morning.
