Biden is known for eating ice cream and posing for photo ops with ice cream cones in both hands.
Afghan media reports the fighters were mocking a "weak" Biden after the Taliban took control of Afghanistan.
Can't wait for the White House "journalists" to ask Joe what flavor ice cream goes best with a Taliban takeover.
