Meta Platforms, Inc., formerly known as Facebook, is rejecting advertisements for ugly Christmas sweaters that poke fun at President Joe Biden.
“Attention: Your ad was rejected,” Facebook wrote in a statement to Jordan of Young Conservatives LLC, which is selling the sweater. Here’s a look at the advertisement that is banned:

“Something’s seriously wrong with Biden,” Dr. Jackson said. “And it’s only going to get worse. It’s past the point of embarrassment.”
“He’s lost. He’s confused. He can barely put a coherent sentence together,” Dr. Jackson said. “He must have a cognitive exam and release the results.”
