Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, May 19, 2020

Former Vice President Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, was met with repeated interruptions during his virtual campaign speech on Monday even as he delivered it from the comforts of his own Delaware residence. While delivering remarks during his campaign event outside on Monday afternoon, Biden was interrupted multiple times by repeated honking from Canada geese at a pond located on the other side of his residence.

At one point, Biden even took a moment to address the honking during the virtual event. "You're going to hear, there's a pond on the other side of my property here. A lot of Canadian geese. If you hear them honking away, they're cheering, that's what they're about," Biden said.

The distraction by the geese did not go unnoticed by Twitter.

Seems like Biden got a good jab in there mocking Trump and the trucker's blasting their horns.

So this is the worst we can report on Biden. It's looking pretty good.

The point here Bruce is not that the speech was interrupted but that its not the first time that this has happened and Biden's Campaign can't figure out how to get him airtime without being interrupted by trucks and geese.

If these kind of problems continue then the heckling will only get worse, which will only detract from the message.

Biden's team has to get better at this soon, but in the meantime, why not play up the everyman aspect of these common occurrences? Honking geese, beeping horns, barking dogs, screaming kids--schitt happens when you are working and zooming from home.

Biden's still alive?

Good to hear.

Nice of him to check in every so often.

Glad he's not too overly worried about winning the election in November.

Unless he did a Q&A after the speech, this content could have been pre-recorded and released and it would have felt "live."

Trump won by running against politicians.

Biden can win by running against lying traitorous adderall junkies with a great media team.

I guess they do do his talks in front of a Sikorsky VH-3D Sea King helicopter... that would drown out the geese. You know, like the "pros" do.

How could the DNC go from media savvy Obama to Biden who is publicly struggling, where did the previous crew go? The longer it goes on, the more surprising it is to see the disconnect from the media team.

Bill and Obama had style and charisma.

People liked them

The DNC didn't need to do much.

Same with BushJr and Regan.

Trump is anger and hatred, seems to be why people like him.

People seem to like Biden because he's not Trump and he was Obama's VP, hope that's enough to help him win.

O.M.G.

You have got to be ---- kidding me! Honking geese?

Clearly Trump is superior to Biden and deserves all 600 million votes in the US. Bigly.

I see we're back to Tansuitgate level stuff again from the right?

Aren't you one of the posters who regularly tells us what Trump actually means when he says stupid stuff?

50 geese. That's record turnout for a Biden event.

He has risen.
Definitely had you marked as someone who got stuck in a Uighur retention camp.

Hilarious watching the right shart themselves over a big fat nothing, when their boy is a lunatic wannabe dictator.

Not yet Noles, and nobody's tried to harvest my organs either. I thought I would check in to see whether the Wuhan Flu"which is still what it's called here"has ravaged the limp-wristed geriatric Left. I'm relieved to see that the best antidote for obese Boomer lefties against COVID is to lock themselves home, order carry out munchies, and meditate to Communist Party propaganda. Same as what works here, in other words.

Still hasn't fixed the buggy code that replaces a double dash with a quotation mark.

I wonder if Trump is going to sniff his way through this year's debates? I'll take honking geese over a Trump sniff-a-thon any day of the week.

You can't even refer to it as the Wuhan Flue here.

It's beyond ironic that Trump wasn't able to grab the virus by the Gyna.

It's the one thing he was supposed to be good at!

"Wuhan Flue"

The China Chimney.

The Sino-Smokestack.

The Great Waft Upward.
