A cheap attempt to insult Joe Biden as mentally unstable backfired this week after a right-wing billboard in southwest Pennsylvania misspelled the word “dementia” as “dimensia.”

The billboard is owned by Penneco Outdoor Advertising, which has a history of running right-wing ads, according to the Pittsburgh City Paper.

As of Wednesday, the company had a 1-star rating on Google Reviews.
