While presumptive Democrat candidate former Vice President Joe Biden is squirreled away in his basement over COVID-19, blunders and missteps continue to follow him during his virtual campaign appearances and tv interviews.
Yesterday, Biden’s live-streamed speech near his garden was filled with interruptions, including honking geese, a walk-on appearance by a presumed Secret Service agent, and a ringing cell phone.

Seems like the geese are regulars repeatedly interrupting Biden’s web events.
Biden recently held an online event with Governors Phil Murphy (D-NJ), Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI), and Ned Lamont (D-CT) and joked about the geese making an appearance.

TV interviews are also a problem for the former vice president.
During an MSNBC interview, Biden didn’t realize a caller’s question was prerecorded as he responded to them by name.

Biden also discussed the Tara Reade sexual assault allegation on MSNBC saying, “I wouldn’t vote for me if I believed Tara Reade.”
Joe Biden’s message to Voters:
"If they believe Tara Reade, they probably shouldn't vote for me. I wouldn’t vote for me if I believed Tara Reade."

In March, Biden had an issue with the teleprompter and the mishap didn’t go unnoticed on social media.

Oh. That is the hand gesture Joe Biden is making at the 22 second mark: “Move the teleprompter along.” You would think they could do another take. pic.twitter.com/VYcJqR69ot

Earlier this month Biden held an online Florida campaign rally and was mocked over glitches and him not knowing he was live following his introduction saying, “They introduced me? Am I on?”
Biden is live at 37:00 in the following video.
Biden’s bloopers and mishaps during his virtual events and TV interviews continue to pile up which will add to concerns about his competency to be the president.
