OPINION: While President Trump had millions of people watching his energetic and powerful Tulsa rally, former President Obama and Joe Biden could only capture 120,000 eyeballs for their boring, jumbled, and confusing town hall. And a huge chunk of those eyeballs were conservatives watching to see how badly Joe would mess up.
The two got together for the “virtual town hall,” on Tuesday, and it was as awkward and cringeworthy as you would expect. Obama sat stone-faced, but still had a look of “silent horror” on his face, as Biden tried to hold a conversation with a pre-recorded video question.
You can tell that Obama is ready to crawl out of his skin as this very awkward one-sided “conversation” starts to unfold.
You can watch the video below:
Why is Joe Biden asking a video recording a question?

Objective reporting for the educated American.
Honestly, there was a very good reason why Obama told Joe that he “didn’t have to do this,” when it came to running for the White House.
Poor old Joe should’ve listened.
