Joe Biden has been ridiculed on social media for making a dated reference to record players during ABC’s Democratic Debate on Thursday night. 

The 76-year-old candidate – who is still the  front-runner to go up against Trump in the 2020 Presidential election – referenced the antiquated music apparatus when asked how he would bridge the gap between rich and poor school students.

‘Play the radio, make sure the television,  excuse me, make sure you have the record player on at night. Make sure that kids hear words, a kid coming from a very poor school, a very poor background will hear four million words fewer spoken by the time we get there,’ he stated. 

The bizarre answer caught the attention of Twitter users, who were quick to poke fun of the former Vice President, with many poking fun of his age and calling him ‘Grandpa Joe’.

‘Leaving the record player on. For the kids’, wrote ironically above a 2016 photo above a photo of Biden looking cool wearing aviator sunglasses as he sat in a yellow convertible.

Another appeared to poke fun of Biden’s old age and the seemingly antiquated messaging of his campaign, by posting a picture of a gramophone with words ‘Biden 2020’.

Meanwhile, another referenced the first debate in which Biden flubbed the phone number for his campaign, by writing: ‘Coming soon to a Biden campaign contest. Go to JOE 30330 for your chance to win a new record player.  

While many appeared amused by Biden's record player reference, others were appalled by his response to the serious question about education.

New Yorker writer Emily Nussbaum took to Twitter posting: ‘I truly don’t understand wtf Biden is talking about. ‘Make sure you have the record player on at night’? This is messed up. And also, not an answer to the question’.

‘Was Biden’s answer to inequality in education that he would turn the record player on?’ another asked. 

Another said his response was the final straw – tweeting ‘I’m out’. 

It’s unclear whether she was turning off the Debate or withdrawing her support for the candidate.  

Elsewhere, some eagle-eyed viewers speculated that Biden’s teeth appeared to come loose while on the stage. 

‘I was expecting one of Biden’s arms or ears or his nose to fall off during the debate. Instead it was just his false teeth that malfunctioned,’  one wrote. 

‘As a knee jerk reaction to tonight’s debate, I opened an account for Joe Biden’s teeth, only to discover that there were already several. Very disappointing,’ a second person added.

While there were several tweets referencing Biden’s alleged ‘dentures’ , the former VP has never spoken publicly about his teeth. 

However, speculation as to whether he has cosmetically enhanced his appearance has been the topic of public discussion in recent months. 

Back in April, The Sun quoted a plastic surgeon as claiming that Biden has ‘had massive amounts of cosmetic surgery to fill wrinkles, fix hairline and whiten teeth’.
