Biden's defenders took to social media and said he is likely holding the phone upside down because another person was part of the conference and was on speaker phone.

Biden's defenders = anyone with sense who doesn't agree with our idiocy.

Your guy thought a pandemic in 1917 ended World War 2.

Your guy thought an Asian country was pronounced Thighland.

Your guy thought one could inject household cleaner to kill a virus.

I literally don't care if Joe Biden were in the last stages of dementia. An Alzheimer's-addled Joe Biden is still smarter than Donald Trump.

Those idiots shouldn't even be allowed to put his name in their mouths. They've shown us what they are and they can all go die for all I care.

Man, that's all he found? I just spent a couple of minutes looking over the photo and I've already found like six more things that I find outrageous:

1) There is a black Sharpie placed prominently on the desktop. Could this be an indication that Biden plans to continue Donald Trump's practice of marking/editing NOAA products, such as hurricane maps? This would be interesting since so many liberals claimed to be opposed to this behavior despite the president being motivated by wanting to ensure as many people as possible stayed safe.

2) The back corner of Biden's desk is blurry. This suggests a deliberate effort to hide what's actually there, which of courses raises one very significant question -- what is he hiding?

3) Despite his efforts to blur it, a wireless cellphone charger can be seen on the desktop. This is ironic from a candidate who claims to care about the environment, since wireless cell phone chargers lose vast amounts of energy to the air.

4) Biden's desk lamp is golden. Yet a key point of criticism for many liberal regarding Trump has been his fondness for using gold as a decorating motif. Will those same liberals voice any opposition to this?

5) Despite having a coaster clearly visible and close at hand, Biden has placed his coffee mug to the right of it, directly on the desk. This suggests a callous and wanton disregard for the well-being of his desk. And if he can't even treat his own property well, how can we expect him to treat millions of Americans who are little more than strangers to him?

6) Biden has both elbows on his desk. I would have been sent to my room without supper for doing the same. I guess not all of us were raised by respectful parents who care about common decency and manners, though.

There's probably a lot more, too. It's sickening.

Obviously it is a Photoshop. Obama did not pose for that picture with a black border or the "FAIL" caption in front of him.

Meh.  I would think our current president has demonstrated that speaking from notes is better than not.

To the untrained eye, Biden is seen sitting at a smart desk dressed in a crisp shirt chatting with Harris on a sleek Apple laptop. The décor was something you'd see in a cavernous library at an illustrious New England university.

Yes, I could not see any of that.  My eye was not trained to look at things.  Where can I get this training?

Computers are for the employees, not the boss. He wouldn't sully his fingers by touching one.

It looks like he's looping someone into the conversation via telephone and pointing the phone mic at the computer. Impeach!!!!

Did they check for Dijon mustard packets in his desk drawer?  Trump probably has some too, but they're safely hidden out of view by all the boxes of pseudophedrine.
 
2020-08-12 1:56:30 PM  
Can he pronounce Yosemite?

Does he stare into eclipses?

Does he think windmills cause cancer?

Does he think working out shortens your life span?

Does he Tweet like a 12 year old girl?

Does he call people childish names on official, national platforms?

Does he threaten to sue every state that doesn't do exactly as he says?

Does he welcome foreign interference in our elections?

Does he have a history with a global child sex trafficking tycoon?

Does he proclaim he wants to bang his daughter in public?

Has he had three wives?

Does he have a history of paying hundreds of thousands of dollars to prostitutes to shut them up?

I can keep going, but I don't think I've hit a "Yes" yet, so I think I'll stop. But thanks Fox "News", for whatever the fark crazy cult bullshiat you're peddling.

Don't forget the Revolutionary War airports.

But the entire "Biden is cognitively impaired" bullshiat is just right-wingers attacking what was a stuttering problem he's spent a lifetime overcoming.

But, attacking people for disabilities beyond their control is something they learned from their emperor daddy.

please note he has a recording app running.  so pointing the microphone at the laptop makes perfect sense, 2 the notes are under the phone.  he's not reading them directly, however he might have wanted tp get his thoughts together prior to the call so he doesn't sound like Trump riffing.

"To the untrained eye" is the kind of self-important bloviation that Barney Fife would say right before he shows Andy the latest crackpot crime-fighting "breakthrough" technique he ordered from the back of whatever comic book he was reading the previous week.

To be fair, every human's heart will ultimately beat a finite number of times so Trump is technically correct.

Nobody should be surprised that these things are scripted or at least are loosely based on some notes of topics to touch on.  But I fully endorse letting the right wing machine pick through innocuous things on Biden's desk and extrapolate bizarre things from them.

Wait, what's that in Trump's desk?  Boxes and boxes of sudafed?  What appears to be a vintage magazine, which he has opened to a picture of his ex-wife wearing a bikini?  Yeah, please proceed.  I'll take harmless framed cartoon anyday.

CSB:  A very long time ago when I was in middle school, I went on some sort of school trip to Washington DC and we got to meet with one of my GOP senators.  He was fairly well respected at the time, and this was the Reagan/Bush I era.  I remember little of that meeting except that he had a framed comic strip on his wall.

I saw Rose Twitter spouting this same lame shiat yesterday. If you are having a video chat with someone and you want a person on the phone to hear what someone on the laptop is saying, how are you supposed to hold the phone??

People want everything to be a farking scandal, I swear...
 
2020-08-12 2:04:52 PM  
Well, that's it. Don't even need to bother with the election, Biden's done. Trump is president-for-life. Upon his passing, the throne will pass on to Ivanka I, long may she reign.

This moron would freak out if he saw my desk.

I have two Misery Inc. Demotivators that I've carried with me since my first office job.  The first one says, "If attitudes are contagious, mine might kill you."  The other one says, "Consultant: Why be part of the solution, when there's good money to be made in prolonging the problem?"

My bosses never liked those, that made me smile.

I don't know if it's ever been brought up before, but the size of the type is noteworthy to me considering that I haven't seen Trump wear glasses.  His large handwriting is easy to overlook.  But the printed stuff that can be read from 20 feet away screams Mr Magoo.
