Former Vice President Joe Biden tried to have a conversation with a pre-recorded video during a Thursday night appearance on MSNBC.
Appearing for the entire hour of “The Last Word With Lawrence O’Donnell,” Biden was given a pre-recorded question from a “voter in California” after MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell switched to the “townhall component” of the interview.
“Let’s listen to this,” said O’Donnell.
“Hi Vice President Biden. My name is Navid,” said the questioner, introducing himself in the video.
“Hi,” Biden responded, apparently confusing the recording for a live interaction.
“Thank you for the opportunity to participate in this town hall with you,” the questioner said, to which Biden replied, “Thank you for participating.”
The interview included a question from O’Donnell about Biden’s “involvement in the investigation of Michael Flynn and the FBI investigation of Michael Flynn.” (RELATED: ‘Doubling Down On Authoritarianism’: Tucker Carlson Rips Lockdown Proponents For Refusing To Learn From Georgia)
“I was never a part or had any knowledge of any criminal investigation into Flynn while I was in office, period. Not one single time,” Biden told the MSNBC host.
