Nothing escapes the eagle eye of netizens who are glued to the internet in this modern age, especially now when so many are either in lockdown or just prefer to stay at home using modern technology to keep in touch.
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden posted on Instagram a photo of his running mate Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and himself, but there appeared to be one small issue.
The post was headlined “Day One Ready,” and pictured Harris front and center, with Biden holding her hand high as he blends into the background, reported Breitbart News.
“Come January; there won’t be any time to waste repairing the damage of the last four years and beginning the work of building back better,” Biden said. “@KamalaHarris and I are ready to get to work on day one,” was Biden’s message, but Harris’s image dominated the photo, reported Breitbart News.
Biden used similar language last week, when he informed his Twitter followers, Harris is “ready to lead on day one.”
If @KamalaHarris and I are elected, we’re going to inherit multiple crises, a nation divided, and a world in disarray. We won’t have a minute to waste.
That’s exactly why I picked her: She’s ready to lead on day one.

There has been mounting concern that Biden may be suffering from cognitive dysfunction, and his rhetoric is doing nothing to dispel those fears. He has avoided the limelight over the past few months, using the spread of the CCP Virus as a reason to work from his basement.
A Rasmussen poll released in early August indicated that a large percentage of the 1,000 polled voters—59 percent—think that Biden won’t last the full first term if he is elected, and his running mate will take over the top job.
Almost half of Democrats polled felt the same way. Around 73 percent of Republicans, and 57 percent of independent voters, feel the same way.
Last week, Biden’s wife, Dr. Jill Biden, defended her husband against any talk that he may not be up for the job.
Addressing the concerns about Biden’s mental acuity with the host of NBC’s “Today,” Jill Biden said, “It’s ridiculous. I mean, Joe’s on the phone every single minute of the day talking to governors who are calling him and Nancy Pelosi. He’s on the Zoom. He’s doing fundraisers. He’s doing briefings. I mean, he doesn’t stop from 9:00 in the morning until 11:00 at night. So that, you know, that’s ridiculous.”
When Biden announced on the internet last week that his running mate was Harris, keen eyes were watching and picked out some irregularities on the screen.
Benny Johnson, the chief creative officer at Turning Point USA, the conservative student organization, posted on Twitter shortly after Biden’s announcement and pointed out a note tucked under the laptop that was tough to read but he was convinced it was a “script.”
3 VERY IMPORTANT THINGS about this photo of Joe Biden calling Kamala to offer her VP spot:
1. Biden has to read from a script that is clearly visible
2. Biden does not know how to hold an iPhone (it’s upside down)
3. The cartoon on Biden’s desk is a man screaming “WHY ME?!” pic.twitter.com/UJt4lruf40

The Trump campaign was quick to pick up on it and said in an email that Biden needed the paper to “understand why his handlers chose” Harris, reported Fox News.
