Former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, who competes for the right to become a candidate from the Democratic Party in the presidential election, is forced to conduct political activities in the basement of his house in Delaware. This is what The Washington Post writes about.
The basement, originally used by Biden as a recreation room, has been equipped with a studio for recording television interviews and video messages. The content produced there was not of high quality: the background on which his speech was recorded was poorly covered, and therefore even some supporters of the politician compared this video to the videos of terrorists and hostages, the newspaper notes.
Biden also tried out the format of the video conference, but the media considered the experience unsuccessful, because the broadcast, which was held on March 13, was accompanied by technical problems and lasted only four minutes on Facebook Live. The broadcast also had a few mishaps: the politician asked someone if they were on the air and in the end just got out of the frame, writes the New York Post.
The former vice president, who will turn 78 in November, for several weeks now has to comply with the home regime due to the spread of coronavirus infection in the U.S., which makes it difficult to conduct his presidential campaign. From the night of March 17 to March 23, Biden did not appear in public or on TV at all, while the future Republican candidate, U.S. President Donald Trump, on the contrary, conducts daily briefings and gives interviews.
