Biden's Virtual Town Hall Was a Complete Train Wreck

Somebody thought it was a good idea to have 77-year-old Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden host a virtual town hall event on Friday. Who would have guessed that the same candidate who told Americans to listen to their record players at a debate last year might run into some technical difficulties? 


Awkward video of people sitting in front of their computers and random audio feeds dominated the first 14 minutes of the 38-minute event. After a short introduction by Dick Durbin, Biden finally made an appearance around the 15-minute mark and began speaking – or began moving his mouth at least – because there was no audio from Mr. Biden for the first minute or so. 

When Biden's audio did come through, it was garbled and cut in and out, denying viewers the privilege of catching who knows how many gaffes. Perhaps that was by design... Anyway, the first half-hour of the 38-minute town hall was a complete waste. The problem was finally rectified around minute 31 when somebody gave the former vice president a cell phone to capture his audio.

"Am I on camera?" Biden can be heard asking at one point.

Biden then struggled to recall the date of the next presidential inauguration.

While discussing his promise to expand Obamacare, Biden said, "... But even I can't do that for another two years -- another year -- between now and November. Or actually January." 


And while the candidate was discussing the Endangered Species Act, he seemed to forget he was even on camera and started pacing around the room. His team, surely exhausted at this point, put an image up on the screen to obscure the candidate as he wandered about. 

It was a disaster. 

The campaign apologized for the problem-riddled event.
