National commentators and political media have been questioning as to the relative absence of Joe Biden from the nation conversation during the Chinese coronavirus epidemic. A statement by the former Vice President on the efforts of his team to set up a livestreaming rig in his Delaware home on March 20th seems to give some clarification on his media absence, suggesting that his team took four days to finally get the system running.
On his call w/ reporters, @JoeBiden says that "God willing by Monday" he will have a system in place where he can hold regular press conferences either remotely or in person from his Delaware home.

Biden ultimately appeared on the livestream feed on Monday, going on to provide a laundry list of embarrassing gaffes and confused statements with CNN’s Jake Tapper and other network programming.
An insignificant Twitch streamer can set up a livestream with perhaps $300 worth of camera and recording equipment that can be easily found on eBay or Best Buy, probably within a day’s work. It looks as if the presumptive Democratic nominee’s team needed far more time- four days, in total- to put together a simpler setup at his home.
Any campaign staffer or digital media professional would be quick to categorize Biden’s operation as amateurish. The man really needed four full days before he could appear live on camera during the most severe nation health pandemic since the 1918 Spanish Flu?
Also, why wouldn’t Biden simply resort to simpler telecommunication methods? He could’ve simply signed up for a Skype account. Surely the general public would understand to a degree if he resorted to using such a program, having in-person campaign events quickly cancelled as a result of the spreading pandemic.
Biden’s low-effort campaign was blasted by some of his Sanders-supporting critics on the left, who are now faced with the prospect of their party nominating a man with a tenuous grasp on 21st-century technology.

Biden’s seeming absence from the de facto digital campaign trail seems to predate his issues with the livestream setup. He appeared in public for a grand total of six minutes last week.
Kanye West Announces Presidential Campaign; 2020 Spoiler?
A shock entry to the Presidential race.
Rap artist and businessman Kanye West announced that he would be running for President in a surprise Saturday tweet; surprising some political commentators on what would be a late entry to the 2020 election. However, the Montana resident and businessman declined to specifically confirm that he would be running in the 2020 election, which is merely four months away.
We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future. I am running for president of the United States 🇺🇸! #2020VISION

West generally trends conservative and adopted pious Christian views several years ago; changing the subject matter of his music to better reflect biblical themes. He’s maintained a warm relationship with President Trump, speaking of his opposition to stifling political correctness in the entertainment industry; the rapper even stated that he planned to cast his first ever vote for President Trump in the 2020 election.
Should he run in this election, it seems more likely that West would be at least inclined to vote for himself.
However, West’s appeal to the black community could mean that he serves as a de facto spoiler taking away enough votes from Democratic nominee Joe Biden to prevent the party elder figure from securing a November victory.
West was edited into the Wikipedia article for the pending 2020 presidential election hours within his tweet, being featured as a major party candidate in the election summary of the page.
Kanye West is yet to file a declaration of candidacy with the Federal Elections Committee, and it’s too late for him to get on the ballot on many major American states, raising questions about the timing or seriousness of his supposed 2020 campaign. However, the colorful musician could be referring to a 2024 campaign.
