A billboard was allegedly hacked in Wilmington, North Carolina, that ran memes mocking President Biden for his disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan and handing the country to the Taliban, stranding thousands of Americans behind enemy lines.
Two pictures were put into the rotation on the electronic display billboard. It is also a possibility the spots were bought but there was no indication of that. They were verified by multiple fact-checkers who drove to the billboard, took pictures, and videoed it.
One display shows Biden eating an ice cream waffle cone while he watches a Chinook military helicopter depart the U.S. Embassy in Kabul.
The other shows the president peeking out from between window blinds evidently showing how he hid not only from the media but from Americans in general as Afghanistan fell to the bloodthirsty Taliban.

The billboard is near the busy Market Street and Eastwood Road intersection in Wilmington, which reportedly sees more than 65,000 vehicles drive through it per day. That makes it the second busiest intersection in the city of more than 120,000 people.
The billboard display quickly went viral on social media.
One person on Twitter stated, “Someone has hacked the Wilmington billboard system!!!! These are actual photos of Wilmington billboards!”

Joe Biden won New Hanover County, where Wilmington resides, by a mere 2,400 votes. In 2016, President Trump took the county by over 4,000 votes.
The billboard is reminiscent of another one that occurred in Tennessee earlier this year. A gas station in Nashville went viral in May for displaying Tucker Carlson memes and images of Hunter Biden doing crack on a billboard while mocking skyrocketing gas prices under the Biden administration. Lewis Country Store also took shots at face masks, intimated that the 2020 election was stolen, and displayed an image of the horned Q Shaman who participated in the Capitol Hill protests on January 6.
I thought that gas station pic with Hunter was fake, but this guy RECORDED it!! 😂😂 Bless this ballsy gas station! 🇺🇸⚔ pic.twitter.com/PHfAlTxBZv

Biden has faced intense criticism for his handling of the troop pullout in Afghanistan. Thousands of Americans who are stranded there are hiding, hunkering down, and praying that they won’t be left behind by the Biden administration.
Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) told Fox News in an interview Monday that somewhere between “400 and 500 people” contacted his office during a period of between 12 and 18 hours “pleading for assistance,” after he opened his phone lines up to Americans stranded “behind Taliban lines.”
The White House is not commenting on the billboard.
While the Biden administration may not be commenting on it, social media sure is:
