‘Am I On?’: Glitchy Biden Rally Turns Into Major Mess

OPINION | This article contains commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden hosted his first virtual rally on Thursday where he attempted to reach out to voters in the swing state of Florida.

The incident, however, was plagued with technical issues and turned into an embarrassing mess.

From the start, Biden did not yet know if he had been introduced and literally asked on air if he had.

“Did they introduce me? Am I on?” Biden started his remarks via the Washington Examiner.

The rest of his introduction was laggy and indecipherable.

Check it out:

The lag continued throughout the speech, often showing a pixelated Biden that could only barely be understood.

Biden was not the only one facing technical issues as the Washington Examiner reports a pair of speakers were unknowingly introduced and were broadcasted. They did not say a word and the broadcast team quickly cut away.

Here’s an example:

The Washington Examiner adds:

The rally, an attempt to emulate traditional campaigning despite the virus putting a pause on large, in-person events, also included a short set from “Funkman Productions” DJ Jack Henriquez, who provided a musical interlude after the Pledge of Allegiance and a speech from Biden regional organizer Larry Bowden.

Biden’s effort to ramp up his online game comes after Obama campaign alumni David Axelrod and David Plouffe warned his team they faced an uphill battle against President Trump in the fall if he didn’t. As an incumbent, Trump has had four years to amass a loyal following and iron out any kinks, opting to pretape events to minimize snafus.
