  • ‘Am I On?’ Joe Biden Just Did a Virtual Town Hall From ‘Tampa’ and It Didn't Go So Well

    “They introduce me? Am I on?” Thus began Joe Biden’s speech during a glitchy, stilted “virtual town hall” set in Tampa, Florida so plagued by technical problems that made the former vice president’s event look like it was run by local seniors attempting Zoom for the first time. The YouTube event began with a series of Florida politicians attempting to introduce Biden - when their livestreams worked. Florida Democratic Party Chair Terrie Rizzo’s speech was marred by lag and audio glitches. Rep. Charlie Crist’s (D-Fla.) video abruptly cut out as he was speaking. For a long stretch between speakers, the...

    Nearly 4 million viewers watched the Fox News virtual town hall with President Trump, which was broadcast from the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., on Sunday night.

According to Nielsen Media Research, Fox News finished first in the 7-9 p.m. time slot, averaging 3.82 million viewers. CNN was second with 1.17 million viewers, while...

    Daily Caller ^ | 04/27/2020 | Henry Rodgers
    2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden will host a virtual women’s town hall with a special guest Tuesday as new reports have surfaced backing up the claims that he sexually assaulted a female staffer when he was a senator. The Biden campaign sent out an email Monday, saying: “On Tuesday, April 28, Joe Biden and a special guest will hold a virtual town hall on the impact of COVID-19 on women.” The email added: “Tentative Start Time: 3:00 PM ET.” This comes after a 1993 transcript obtained by The Intercept showed that the mother of Biden’s accuser Tara Reade, who has...

    Democratic presidential frontrunner Joe Biden will take part in a CNN town hall focusing on the coronavirus pandemic on Friday night, according to a network announcement. The 60-minute town hall will "feature questions submitted by individuals living in some of the communities hit hardest by the coronavirus," per CNN. Biden will join the event from his home studio in Delaware. It will be moderated by "AC 360" anchor Anderson Cooper. The former vice president has been mostly sidelined in recent weeks by the coronavirus pandemic, a development sparking anxiety among some Democrats. President Trump has seen his approval numbers rise...

    Townhall ^ | March 24, 2020 | Derek Hunter
    People tend to come together in moments of crisis, most people anyway. There’s always that selfish jerk in a zombie movie interested in grabbing the wads of cash or something else they’d always wanted but couldn’t get before everything went to hell, and it usually costs them. Democrats are that selfish guy. And while it varies what the cost is in the movies – either his life or the life of someone else – in the case of coronavirus, let it be the political lives of every Democrat, because they truly are bad people.

    Washington Examiner ^ | March 14,2020 | Andrew Mark Miller
    Former Vice President Joe Biden’s presidential campaign issued an apology after his first-ever virtual town hall was interrupted multiple times by “technical difficulties" and perceived gaffes. “Tonight, you tuned in to our first ever virtual town hall. And unfortunately, we had some technical difficulties. That’s our bad,” his campaign explained. “We’re working every day to make this campaign better. And in this new era, we are experimenting with new technology. We promise to do better next time.” The campaign also posted an edited version online. The town hall, which was held online due to fears about the coronavirus, was widely...

    I don’t believe President Trump was ever worried about Joe Biden being a serious threat. Biden has a long history of gaffes and has proved himself to not be the sharpest knife in the drawer throughout his career. Throughout his decades of public service, the former Senator and current Vice President has earned a reputation for often saying the wrong thing at the wrong time Yesterday was no different. He tried to hold a virtual town hall meeting and things got pretty bad. At one moment he wandered off-camera as he was babbling about the Amazon forest burning and how...

    Did you see the Biden campaign’s virtual town hall today? If you tried to watch it on Facebook, you probably missed it as it only lasted four minutes before technical difficulties forced them to give up. If you tried to watch it anywhere else, well, let’s just say you were treated to a spectacle. What happens when you combine a candidate who doesn’t know where he is half the time with a campaign team that can’t piece together the know-how to do a Facebook livestream? You get the Biden virtual town hall. But what made it worse was when the...

    Fox News’ town hall with President Trump on Thursday was the most-watched election town hall in cable news history, according to early Nielsen media research. The event co-moderated by Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum averaged 4.2 million viewers from 6:30-7:30 p.m. ET. The record-setting town hall dominated cable news, topping MSNBC’s 1.4 million viewers and CNN’s 1 million viewers combined. Fox News also beat CNN and MSNBC combined in the key news demographic of adults age 25-54, averaging 744,000 during the town hall. Trump, speaking with Baier and MacCallum in Joe Biden's hometown of Scranton, Pa., suggested that the new...

    By any stretch of the imagination, the FOX news town hall for President Trump was a stunning success. That this comes as some sort of surprise to some is the question. Only those who have remained deliberately unaware could have been surprised. The 45th president was in his fine form for his roughly 58 minutes or so on screen. Those who thought that the team of Brett Baier and Martha MacCallum would somehow 'take the president down' were sadly mistaken. Indeed, some out there thought Martha might have a Meghan Kelly moment. First of all, that moment may have helped...
  • Why Private Speech Doesn't Tell Us About a Person's Character

    Townhall ^ | 02/11/2020 | Dennis Prager
    Very few things I have said have elicited as much negative attention as this: What people say in private tells little, if anything, about their character. Left-wing critics have had a field day mocking me (mockery is the left's substitute for argument), but even some religious conservatives have taken issue with me (without the mockery) -- don't I know that it is precisely how we act in private that most clearly reveals our character? This issue, of course, originally arose as a result of what then-reality TV host Donald Trump said in private to then-"Access Hollywood" host Billy Bush in...

    President Trump keeps bringing in the crowds. MSNBC's Katy Tur was on site for Trump's' most recent rally at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa Thursday night, and she couldn't believe what she was seeing. Just a few days out from the Iowa Caucus, and voters appear to be fired up about re-electing the president. "7,000 people inside that arena, we couldn't even get in it was so packed ... That is in stark contrast to what we're seeing from the Democrats so far in Iowa." Link to video:

    CNN canceled its upcoming town halls featuring Democrat presidential candidates slated for next week due to the ongoing Senate impeachment trial, the outlet reported on Thursday. CNN was slated to hold a two-day town hall event for the Democrat presidential candidates at Drake University on Tuesday, January 28, and Wednesday, January 29, just days before the February 3 Iowa caucuses. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Andrew Yang (D), Tom Steyer (D), Pete Buttigieg (D), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), and Joe Biden (D) were expected to attend. However, the ongoing impeachment trial in the Senate will make it...

    I just wanted to give a reminder of why one of the most powerful things a conservative can do is go out and protest. I mean, it's only listed in the constitution. But who reads that thing, right? If you don't like the fake news media? Best thing you can do is go out and protest. If you don't believe me I can prove it to you. I'll even show you where a journalist has admitted this to be true. Sure, I am going to be at the March for Life next week so I do have a vested interest....

    A Virginia Democratic congresswoman who was a reluctant supporter of the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump found herself in the middle of a tense town hall on Sunday when she explained her position on the matter. Constituents in Rep. Abigail Spanberger's moderate district -- she unseated Republican Rep. Dave Brat last year -- who both supported and opposed the impeachment effort shouted at times during the event in Spotsylvania, Virginia. She was discussing her record and instances when she voted against House Democratic leadership when a few audience members interrupted and told her to move on to impeachment. "My...
