On several occasions, the Biden campaign has faced criticism during the 2020 presidential election.
The former vice president’s various verbal gaffes haven’t done him any favors; Biden’s decision to also steer clear of in-person campaigning is hurting him, as well, especially as President Trump travels the nation and hosts giant, enthusiastic rallies.
On Tuesday, Biden’s campaign faced criticism for odd behavior that happened on Instagram stories.
Washington Examiner reports that this week’s episode marks yet another instance of the Biden campaign dodging questions from Americans whose votes they want.
A Closer Look at the Biden Campaign’s Instagram Slip-up
Earlier this week, Biden attempted to use Instagram stories as a means of communicating with his supporters.
As such, the former vice president updated his story by promising to answer submitted questions and encouraging supporters to inquire about “anything.” Taking Biden at his word, several Americans submitted various questions…all to no avail.

After hours upon hours passed, Biden’s campaign updated the page, yet never got around to answering the numerous inquiries submitted by various individuals.
The lack of answered questions quickly prompted the former vice president’s critics to troll his Instagram story. Some Americans sarcastically asked if Biden would “use a teleprompter” to respond to questions submitted via Instagram; meanwhile, others roasted the Biden campaign for failing to acknowledge inquiries altogether.
To date, it’s unclear why the Biden campaign chose not to answer the questions submitted to them via Instagram stories.
More on the Biden Campaign
On Wednesday, the former vice president traveled to Warren, Michigan in order to keep campaigning for president of the United States. During this time, Biden spoke without a live audience, yet appeared to stumble through reading the words written on a provided teleprompter.

Yesterday’s episode in Warren only contributes to growing speculations about the former vice president’s unfitness to seek the presidency, let alone lead the nation. Thus far, the Biden campaign has not issued any public statements regarding the awkwardness during the former vice president’s remarks.
Instead, Biden continues to attack President Trump by running with rumors about the latter’s prior knowledge of COVID-19. Trump, on the other hand, is set to visit Michigan later today and host a rally for supporters to join.
