Former Vice President Joe Biden, a 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful, launched a new podcast on Monday—and it seems everyone online has got a joke about it.
The podcast, which was paid for by the campaign, is pretty much exactly what you’d expect a presidential hopeful’s podcast to be like: simple, not too much flair, and some pretty straightforward questions to answer at the end.
The first episode features Biden talking with Ron Klain, the former White House Ebola Response Coordinator, about the coronavirus and the government’s response to it so far.
But, given that “launching a podcast” has become a joke online, Biden’s first episode became the center of numerous wisecracks by people on Twitter—as is the case with anything the former vice president has done recently.
The podcast is called “Here’s the Deal.”
