Technologically-Challenged Biden Looks To “New Thing Called Teleconferencing”

Look-out, 20-somethings! Joe Biden is coming for you! Seems as if the technologically-challenged former VP is going cutting-edge. As if this were not on the cusp of tech-savvy production:

In the desperate pits of despair to stay relevant, Slo Joe was asked why his campaign was not providing daily counter commentary to President Trump’s daily White House briefings. Joe admitted that he was technologically-challenged and that his campaign staffers are telling him about a new thing called teleconferencing!

They tell me there’s ways we can do teleconferencing via us all being in different location.”-Joe Biden

Joe, it’s a wonderful thing, the Internet! Really. You should try it sometime while you’re listening to your tunes on the record player.

Zoom Meeting. Google Hangout. Facebook. So many platforms. Biden said all of this tech stuff was clearly “above his pay grade”. Hmm. I work in the tech field. Sign me up. I would love to be at that particular technician pay grade!

The funny thing about ol’ technologically-challenged Joe is this. The media said hardly a peep about his train wreck of a performance at his last town hall. But they sure did say a lot about John McCain not knowing how to use a computer.

Washington is full of these guys, and it’s so depressing.-Mother Jones

Not a word from Mother Jones about Biden’s epic town hall failure. Only reports of victory.

And let’s harken way back to the day to of The New York Times‘ smug take on George Herbert Walker Bush’s encounter with a supermarket scanner:

As President Bush travels the country in search of re-election, he seems unable to escape a central problem: This career politician, who has lived the cloistered life of a top Washington bureaucrat for decades, is having trouble presenting himself to the electorate as a man in touch with middle-class life.

Today, for instance, he emerged from 11 years in Washington’s choicest executive mansions to confront the modern supermarket.-The New York Times, February 5, 1992

Lots of opinions in the NYT about Biden. None describe him as a technologically-challenged old coot. Biden is “no longer toast”, Biden is “resurrected”, Biden is the “Change Candidate“, Biden “wins it all”, Biden “Takes Command” and probably one of my favorites from The New York Times, “Biden Has Had Flimsy Organization, It Hasn’t Hurt Him”.

Alas, after many of years in the Dark Ages, Joe Biden is on the precipice of technological advancement in his campaign…he’s hired a bunch of “professionals” and will start conducting Coronavirus shadow-briefings to counter Donald Trump’s daily briefings as early as Monday. His house will be tricked-out with equipment that would enable him to livestream events, have interactive tele-press conferences and broadcast interviews with network television. Most of these briefings will focus on Donald Trump’s lies, he says. Where he is getting his information? Who knows!

Sounds as if the technologically-challenged Biden campaign is grasping at straws just like little kids are grasping at creepy Uncle Joe’s hairy legs in the pool. Joe is dusting off his Tandy and his brick phone right now. Get the Betamax tapes ready to record-in three, two and one!

    I truly feel sorry for Joe. He should be safe, at home. Instead, they keep trotting him out there to embarrass himself. They should be ashamed.
