President Barack Obama’s face said it all as he appeared alongside Joe Biden for a virtual fundraiser on Tuesday.
“I think we have a question coming up,” Biden said, unsure of what was happening next.
“Is that true?” he wondered aloud as the question began.
“Am I correct about that?” he continued as it played and appeared to be prerecorded.
Why is Joe Biden asking a video recording a question?

“Hi,” he said as the woman said her name.
“You’re an ICU nurse, aren’t you?” Biden said as Obama shook his head affirmatively.
“Is that what I was told?” Biden continued, but the woman was gone because her prerecorded question was over.
Obama shifted, with a mix of amusement and confusion on his face.
It’s not the first time Biden seemed to try to interact with a prerecorded video. Here is an appearance on MSNBC:

Another time, Biden seemed to get lost in what he was discussing:
Joe Biden, ladies and gentlemen:
“Stop…stop the…cold…war future that we're talking about, we're talking about a peaceful cold war, what are we talking about”
Watch for Biden’s nonsense.

“Stop— stop the— cold— war future that we’re talking about, we’re talking about a peaceful cold war, what are we talking about?” he said as Obama looked on pensively.
As the event drew to a close, Obama seemed to cut it off rather abruptly:

Obama jumped in on Biden’s statement, “That’s why we need to, as president, Joe Biden.
“That’s why, I want everybody who’s on, let’s get to work. It’s been great being with you,” Obama said as they said they loved each other and the event ended.
