Joe Biden's Virtual Rally In Tampa, Florida Marred By Technical Difficulties: "Am I On?"

(UPDATE 5/8/20: The Biden campaign deleted the original video and replaced it. See below.)

Evan Axelbank at FOX 13 News in Tampa tweeted presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden played right into Trump's hands with a virtual rally held on YouTube that was hampered with technical glitches. Biden fell victim to image and audio glitches, screens going dark, participants appearing and disappearing, and viewers leaving in droves.

"Did they introduce me? Am I on?" Joe Biden asked at the top of the rally after viewers clearly heard an introduction.



Axelbank tweeted the event reinforced the Trump campaign narrative that Biden's operation is not up to snuff and left him open for questions like: "If he can't run a livestream, how can we expect him to run our country?"

Axelbank wrote the virtual event was a "disaster" and worse than if he hadn't done one at all.

"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?" the reporter asked on Twitter.
