Former VP Joe Biden's presidential campaign hosted its first-ever virtual town hall with Illinois voters on Friday evening after he and Sen. Bernie Sanders were forced to cancel campaign events because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Unfortunately, the technology did not cooperate. Biden's voice was garbled at times, unsuspecting participants appeared on-screen randomly, and at one point Biden appeared to walk out of frame. "Am I on camera?" Biden can be heard asking at one point.
The Trump campaign picked up on the issues and declared the event a "complete disaster."

The Biden campaign released an edited version of the event with an apology for "technical difficulties."
