Biden’s ‘May The 4th Be With You’ Video Mocked Online


Pres. Biden & Hamill

United States President Joe Biden’s video clip that featured Luke Skywalker actor Mark Hamill was criticized by social media as “lame.” The video featured Biden staring into the camera and saying, “May the fourth be with you,” and Hamill followed through with the word “Always.”

The Biden Star Wars Day video on X (formerly Twitter) garnered 4.8 million views just hours after being posted for Star Wars Day 2024. However, the ‘Biden, Mark Hamill’ video quickly drew flak from users, with one saying, “The national embarrassment continues.” The duo shot the clip following Hamill’s surprise visit to the White House.

The actor has been a vocal supporter of Biden and Israel despite the ongoing protests and riots on college campuses over Biden’s support of Israel’s invasion of Gaza. Many believe that the Biden ‘May the 4th be with you’ clip is a stark opposite of today’s current events.

Campus Protests Continue

Meanwhile, this weekend, commencement ceremonies kicked off at colleges and universities nationwide amidst ongoing protests on campus. Demonstrators are predominantly calling for divestment from entities alleged to support or benefit from Israel’s actions in Gaza.

At the University of Southern California, police dispersed a pro-Palestinian protest encampment without arrests, marking the second dismantling of such a site. USC President Carol Folt condemned the action as unlawful, reiterating a zero-tolerance stance.

DePaul University witnessed a large demonstration requiring police presence, though no violence or vandalism occurred. Meanwhile, UCLA Chancellor Gene D. Block addressed safety concerns following recent protests, announcing operational changes.

At the Art Institute of Chicago, 68 individuals, including students, were arrested after protesters allegedly obstructed museum operations and stole security keys.

At the University of Michigan, pro-Palestinian demonstrators briefly interrupted the main commencement ceremony, resulting in removal but no arrests. Similar disruptions occurred at a smaller ceremony the previous day.

In Charlottesville, police disbanded pro-Palestinian protesters, arresting 25 for trespassing after clearing tents near the University of Virginia campus center.
