A member of the GOP’s rapid response team had to delete a tweet about Joe Biden after it managed to make the presumptive Democratic presidential candidate look good.

On Monday, Steve Guest, the Republican Party’s rapid response director, attempted to use the news that Washington, D.C.’s NFL team is changing its racist team name to tar the former vice president.

Guest did so using a frankly adorable photo of the former vice president with one of his sons.

Presumably, the tweeted photo was intended to make Biden look like a supporter of the NFL team’s racist name.

However, things didn’t turn out that way based on the reactions on social media.

Guest eventually deleted the tweet.

Oh no, a picture of Joe Biden as a caring and loving father, something there is zero photographic evidence of when it comes to Donald Trump.How will the Biden campaign ever recover?!

The Republican party rapid response director is now tweeting photos of Joe Biden being a doting dad in order to somehow reelect Donald Trump. As someone once said, they're not sending their best. https://t.co/2ZZCgUYYHw

Posting an old picture of Biden being a caring father to his young kids—one of whom died of cancer not long ago—to mock him, huh?On brand for you sick sociopaths.

The disconnect between the cute photo and the negative message it was apparently attempting to send was so big that it inspired at least one conspiracy theory.

im pretty convinced the gop rapid response director is a biden mole. that's the only explanation possible for their horrific content. https://t.co/nGcilJ18Kp

Others jokingly predicted this just might be the thing to sink the Biden campaign for good.

Biden loves his son. Don't know how his campaign survives this. https://t.co/H0nhcJcyIY
