President Donald Trump's MAGA era is coming to an end after his loss to President-Elect Joe Biden. And Joe jokingly marked his administration's new era with a new hat—one that Twitter and TikTok are seeing as a clever troll of the last four years of MAGA hats flooding the market and country.
His wife, Dr. Jill Biden, posted a photo of her and Joe after his victory was announced on Saturday. And while the sign she's holding, where she covers the word "vice" so it says "Dr. and President Biden Live Here," was meant to be the primary source of attention, Joe's hat also warranted a close look. The hat reads "We Just Did" and "46" seemingly a response to Trump's "Make America Great Again." (Trump is the 45th U.S. president, while Joe will be the 46th.) The biggest shocker in all of this? The Joe Biden campaign store is not selling the hat as merch yet. But hey, it's probably only a matter of time.

Twitter was impressed by the move—and many people expressed how badly they wanted a hat of their own. Here, the best reactions to Joe's sartorial statement.

And of course, hat jokes aside, Joe has run a campaign rooted in the idea of unifying the country. In his first speech as president-elect, Joe emphasized that message, saying, "I pledge to be a president who seeks not to divide but unify, who doesn’t see red states or blue states, only sees the United States. I’ll work with all my heart, with the confidence of the whole people, to win the confidence of all of you, and for that is what America, I believe, is about. "
He added later, "For all those of you who voted for President Trump, I understand the disappointment tonight. I’ve lost a couple times myself. But now, let’s give each other a chance. It’s time to put away the harsh rhetoric, lower the temperature, see each other again, listen to each other again, and to make progress. We have to stop treating our opponents as our enemies. They are not our enemies; they are Americans. They are Americans. The Bible tells us to everything there is a season: A time to build, a time to reap and a time to sow, and a time to heal. This is a time to heal in America. Now this campaign is over."
