Biden’s Interview Implodes with 3 Huge Blunders – Here’s the Fallout of Joe’s Failed Rescue Attempt

Biden’s campaign is like a sinking ship, and the recent interview just blew another massive hole in the hull. After his dreadful debate performance, concerns about his mental health have finally become apparent to Democrats. Biden’s team tried to spin it as an “off night,” but Americans aren’t buying it.

Biden’s age and mental fitness are now under intense scrutiny. A growing number of Democrats are openly questioning his ability to lead. The liberal establishment is desperately trying to hold the line, but cracks are forming.

Trivia Question: Which famous Civil War battle was fought in July 1863 and is considered a turning point in the war? (Answer at the end of the article.)

Biden’s disastrous debate performance just over a week ago led to a precipitous drop in the polls. Many in his party are now privately and publicly calling for him to step aside. The White House is in full damage control mode. They hoped a friendly interview with George Stephanopoulos would help. Spoiler alert: Mission Failure.

From the New York Post:
President Biden failed Friday to stem growing pessimism about his political future in a rambling 22-minute interview with ABC anchor George Stephanopoulos — during which many of the same issues that marred the Democrat’s debate performance last week resurfaced.

Biden, 81, gave multiple excuses for his shocking performance at the first presidential showdown against Donald Trump, saying that he was “exhausted” and “sick” with a “bad cold” before whining that he let Trump’s remarks “distract me” — and forgetting whether he had watched footage of his meltdown.

Biden’s Incoherent Defense

Biden’s excuses for his poor debate performance were laughable. He blamed exhaustion and a bad cold for his incoherence. Joe even claimed he let Trump’s “shouting” distract him.

Anyone who saw the debate knows this isn’t true, as Trump was respectful, and the mics were cut. In fact, it seems likely Biden confused last week’s debate with their more contentious debates from 2020, pointing once again to problems with mental cognition.

And even if Trump was combative, if Biden can’t handle a debate, how does he expect to run the country? He basically refused an independent medical neurological test multiple times when asked by Stephanopoulos, saying the job itself is his mental test. Really, Joe?

Even worse, Biden entered this interview knowing his debate performance was the main topic. But when asked if he had reviewed his performance, his answer was a stunning, “I don’t think so—no.” I totally understand not wanting to watch yourself on camera, but his career is on the line and he not only didn’t rewatch it, he can’t even give a straight yes or no, as if he can’t remember?

We haven’t even covered the falsehoods Biden tried to spin. He claimed he’s the guy who shut Putin down. Really? And Joe claimed that no one draws crowds like he did that day in Wisconsin. Even Stephanopoulos pushed back on that one, noting Trump’s crowd-drawing abilities.

The White House is clearly panicking. Biden’s handlers are trying to shield him from further scrutiny. Scheduling a friendly interview with Stephanopoulos was supposed to be an easy win. Instead, it turned into another PR disaster. The American people deserve a leader who can stand up to tough questions.

Growing Dissent Among Democrats

The calls for Biden to step aside are growing louder. Many Democrats are expressing concerns about his ability to lead. They know running Biden in 2024 could be a disaster. If he can’t handle a debate or interview, how can he be expected to lead the country?

And this may have been the Democrats’ worst news from the interview: Biden’s not backing down, and won’t listen to his party leadership. Here’s how adamant he is that he’s staying in the race:

“If the Lord Almighty came down and said, ‘Joe, get out of the race’, I’d get out of the race,” he said. “But the Lord Almighty’s not coming down.”

He then went on to say that there was no way top party leaders would encourage him to leave. He refuses to believe his plummeting polls, and appears deaf to his own party’s concerns for his health. It looks like Joe’s the last one to realize what’s going on, and that’s sad. Some have called it elder abuse by Jill Biden and the many people who covered this up.

The growing dissent has led to speculation about replacements, but all this means nothing if Biden refuses to concede. Vice President Kamala Harris is an obvious choice, but her poll numbers aren’t much better than Biden’s. Some insiders are floating the idea of drafting a dark horse candidate.

Looking Ahead to November

The road to November looks almost impossible for Biden. His disastrous debate performance and interview have raised serious questions about his ability to campaign. Nate Silver at 538 is comparing it to a guy who’s supposed to show up to the movies but now has a broken leg. Democrats are in disarray, and pressure on Biden to step aside is growing. If he refuses, the party could face a bitter primary battle.

Biden’s campaign is floundering. His excuses and rambling responses during the Stephanopoulos interview deepened concerns about his fitness for office. With growing dissent among Democrats and speculation about replacements, the road to next week, much less November. Americans deserve a leader who can handle the job, not just for the next 4 years, but for today. It’s now clear to many Americans that Biden is not up to the task.

Key Takeaways:

  • Biden’s interview was as disastrous as his debate performance, raising serious concerns about his fitness for office.
  • Growing dissent among Democrats is leading to increased calls for Biden to step aside in the 2024 race.
  • The White House is in panic mode as Biden’s poll numbers continue to plummet and speculation about potential replacements intensifies.
