Lately people have been asking “where’s Joe Biden?” Well, the Democrat presidential candidate promised to hold shadow coronavirus briefings to counter those provided by President Trump and his team. Biden’s practicing some social distancing by doing the briefings from a makeshift studio in his home, and the first briefing got off to an, er, interesting start:
This is how Joe Biden started his address to the country on coronavirus…

You might have noticed that Joe didn’t exactly set a good example there:

The CDC will not approve of the message Biden sent.
Wow, he starts by wiping his nose with his hand. Nice. SMH ?♂️?♂️?♂️ https://t.co/6KW8OBS0Ri

Confused from the word "go"…then touches his face.

As he wipes his nose. And clearly has other people in the room. https://t.co/wOLygbe8gk

What is Joe Biden doing with his hand here?
It looks like Biden’s teleprompter went down during his coronavirus press briefing today, and his staff forgot to put a copy of his speech at the podium. pic.twitter.com/YVBz1QJK2R

So painful to watch.

Naturally Jennifer Rubin thought Biden nailed it:
Biden in conversational voice is the best Biden. Explaining how complicated things are reinforces how ill-quipped Trump is. Smart not to blame Trump for virus but to hit how delinquent he has been. Tops it off with stinging indictment of the "blank check" slush fund.

Maybe she watched something different.
Factually Biden is reading off a teleprompter words that someone else wrote down for him to say – even at that he struggled. https://t.co/n5EiHD18D3
