Joe Biden Shredded for Blunder-Filled Virtual Rally: 'How Can a National Campaign Allow This To Happen?

Path 27

What was billed as a virtual rally for presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on Thursday was skewered as a technological disaster.

The glitch-filled event aimed at rallying support for Biden among Florida voters featured speakers whose words were well out of sync with the images on the video, extensive comments from the technical staff trying to get everyone to speak at the right time, and a roughly six-minute void of silence.

The website Vice summarily lampooned the event as “so plagued by technical problems it looked like it was being run by local seniors attempting Zoom for the first time.”

“When the basic tech wasn’t failing Biden, a rather loud, angry-sounding chirping bird drowned out Biden’s remarks better than any MAGA protester could have,” it added.

Vice also noted that the event was more than just another chapter in the series of technology mishaps plaguing many Americans in this time of coronavirus-induced lockdowns, but rather played into the narrative of President Donald Trump’s campaign “to paint Biden as a doddering old man.”

“If Biden and his team can’t figure out how to up their digital game, that attack may cut deep,” Vice opined.

Others also said the event was a disaster.

“The candidate’s own audio was going in and out and all glitchy. How can a national campaign allow this to happen? Do they not have Zoom?” WTVT’s Evan Axelbank tweeted.

The event included roughly 10 minutes of music playing over a series of images of Biden that started and ended with several minutes of nothing on the screen but a man identified as DJ Jack Henriquez playing the music while lights flashed on the screen.



When the music ended, the glitches returned. Democratic Rep. Charlie Crist of Florida extolled Biden’s virtues with the audio out of sync and badly garbled until the video of him suddenly disappeared, which improved the quality of the final minutes of his remarks.

Is Joe Biden fit to be president?

Biden’s appearance at the end of the video began with him apparently unaware he was live.

“Did they introduce me? Am I on?” Biden asked as he moved closer to the camera, taking off a pair of sunglasses.

When he started talking, Biden’s remarks were garbled, giving him the sound of speaking while under water as he criticized Trump’s response to the coronavirus.
