Joe Biden Removing Trump's 'Diet Coke Button' From the Oval Office Prompts Wave of Jokes

President Joe Biden has removed Donald Trump's supposed "Diet Coke button" as part of the changes he has made to the Oval Office.

While in office, Trump had a red button on his desk that was said to alert a butler to bring him Diet Coke. Some Twitter users are shocked that Biden had the button removed, while others are shocked that the "Diet Coke button" may have even existed in the first place.

Trump's love for Diet Coke has been well-documented, as is the rumor that he supposedly has 12 of the drinks a day. But the rumor that the button on his desk was used to summon the soda is news for some.

In an Associated Press report about memorable moments from Trump's first year in office, reporter Julie Pace discussed how she saw the "Diet Coke button" in action. She described how when he pressed the button, a "White House butler walked in with a single glass of Diet Coke on a silver tray for the commander in chief."

Now, with Biden in office, the "Diet Coke button" is no more, as pointed out by journalist Tom Newton Dunn, who said: "President Biden has removed the Diet Coke button.

"When [Tim Shipman] and I interviewed Donald Trump in 2019, we became fascinated by what the little red button did. Eventually Trump pressed it, and a butler swiftly brought in a Diet Coke on a silver platter. It's gone now."

Twitter users were quick to joke about the "Diet Coke button", like Emmy Bengston, who imagined how the conversation telling Biden about the button would have gone: "I would've paid so much money to get to be in the room for the conversation that I imagine went like:

BIDEN: ok what's next

STAFFER: setting up the Oval. Photos are all done. Do you want to keep the Diet Coke button?

BIDEN:

STAFFER:

BIDEN: the what in god's name button"

Bengston followed up her tweet and said: "although honestly I'm surprised he didn't want to turn it into an ice cream button"

Emily Nussbaum also seemed surprised that the button was removed, saying: "I very much want a Diet Coke button, it's the only part of being President that seems appealing."

Other Twitter users were shocked to hear that Trump may have even had a "Diet Coke button" in the first place, like @shoopdahoop25 who said: "FAMILY GUY WASN'T JOKING ABOUT THE 'DIET COKE BUTTON'?"

Family Guy referenced the "Diet Coke button" in the 2019 episode "Trump Guy" which sees four butlers bring in four cans of soda while Trump is fighting Peter Griffin.
