(RightWing.org) – Virtually everyone is moving to the internet to continue living their lives because of the pandemic. Workers, businesses, churches, and even political campaigns are bolstering their digital operations to find a sense of normalcy in all the chaos. Joe Biden has been one of the slowest adopters of the internet when it comes to his presidential campaign, although it seems that his team is finally getting the hang of technology.
Biden’s team has set up their live streaming infrastructure, something that Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) accomplished much earlier in the race. However, there’s a stark difference between the two presidential hopefuls: Bernie has been hosting his live streams for free, while Biden is now attaching an exorbitant price tag to his.
Joe Biden is holding a fireside chat. To view the livestream will cost $2,800 per person. This will be done in the middle of a pandemic in which over 10 million Americans have lost their jobs. I am literally disgusted, even Trump wouldn't go that low. #NeverBiden

How does Biden think the average American has $2,800 to blow on watching his live stream scheduled for April, 16, a Thursday? Contrast that with Bernie, who raised $2 million for coronavirus charities in two days last month. Over the course of 48 hours, he managed to do some good while Biden has seemingly disappeared from the public eye.
Say what you will about crazy old Bernie, but at least he’s not charging thousands of dollars just to watch him speak online.
