As the 2020 election draws near, it seems like everyone is talking about politics. But one thing that has been gaining traction lately isn’t a political issue – it’s Minecraft.
In recent weeks, memes featuring President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump playing the popular video game have been circulating on social media platforms such as Twitter and Reddit. The meme features an AI voice saying “President Joe Biden is now playing Minecraft” or “Former President Donald Trump is now playing Minecraft”. It’s unclear who created the meme, but it has become increasingly popular among gamers and non-gamers alike.
Minecraft was released in 2011 by Mojang Studios and quickly became one of the most successful video games of all time. It allows players to build virtual worlds using blocks of various shapes and sizes while also exploring their environment for resources to craft tools, weapons, armor, structures, etc. Players can also interact with each other through multiplayer servers or join forces against computer-controlled enemies called mobs.
The popularity of this meme could be attributed to its relatability; many people are familiar with both presidents’ personalities as well as their stances on certain issues which makes them easy targets for jokes related to gaming culture. Additionally, some may find comfort in seeing two powerful figures engaging in something so seemingly innocent as playing a video game together – even if they don’t agree politically – because it serves as a reminder that we’re all human at heart regardless of our differences in opinion or beliefs.
It’s no surprise then that this meme has taken off since its emergence online; not only does it provide entertainment value but also offers an opportunity for people from different backgrounds to come together over something they can relate to (i.e., gaming). Whether you’re a fan of either president or just someone looking for some lighthearted fun during these trying times – there’s no denying that this meme will continue trending until Election Day arrives!
