Frantic NY Times Says Biden Is 'Now The Problem,' Needs To 'Step Aside'

The editorial board of the New York Times has issued another opinion piece calling for Democrats to publicly denounce President Biden’s 2024 bid after he failed to ease worries about his mental fitness last week.

The outlet first called on the embattled 81-year-old president to suspend his campaign the day after his disastrous debate against Donald Trump in Atlanta, where he showed signs of confusion and froze up on stage.

The Times has added in a scathing follow-up that since the June 27 debate, Biden has “offered little comfort” to Democrats who want him to abandon his likely party nomination and step aside for another candidate.

Biden “has maintained a scripted and controlled schedule of public appearances. He has largely avoided taking questions from voters or journalists — the kinds of interactions that reveal his limitations and caused him so much trouble on the debate stage,” the Times’ editorial board wrote.

“And when he has cast aside his teleprompter, most notably during a 22-minute interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos on Friday, he has continued to appear as a man in decline.”
