Ex-Obama Aides Meltdown Over Biden’s Debate Disaster (VIDEO)

In a shocking display of frustration, the co-hosts of the liberal podcast “Pod Save America” expressed their dismay over President Joe Biden’s disastrous performance during Thursday night’s debate. Former Obama aides Jon Favreau, Tommy Vietor, Dan Pfeiffer, and Jon Lovett did not hold back their harsh criticism, reflecting the growing panic among Democrats regarding Biden’s ability to serve another term.

Jon Favreau, who once served as head speechwriter for former President Barack Obama, described the debate as the worst he had ever seen. “You don’t listen to us to sugarcoat anything, I think it was a fucking disaster,” Favreau lamented. He highlighted Biden’s inability to complete sentences and his raspy voice, calling it a failure on every level.

Tommy Vietor pointed to Biden’s performance as exacerbating concerns about his age and mental capacity. “And I believe that tonight’s performance is not a reflection on the type of president that he is. But it is a very concerning piece of evidence about the kind of candidate he will be in this race,” Vietor explained.

Dan Pfeiffer, another co-host, stressed the importance of Biden’s role in beating Trump, suggesting the president failed to change the dynamic in his favor during the debate. Jon Lovett went further, suggesting it might be time for an open conversation about whether Biden should step aside. “For the same sense of decency, and empathy and patriotism that led Joe Biden to run, I believe this is a moment to at least have a big, open conversation about the best thing he can do for America is to end his presidency as the success it deserves to be,” Lovett said.

The debate performance has intensified worries among Democratic voters regarding Biden’s mental acuity. According to a CBS News/YouGov poll, only 26% believe Biden has the “mental and cognitive health” to serve a second term, compared to 43% for Trump. Similarly, a WSJ poll found only 36% of registered voters believe Biden is “mentally up for the job,” while 49% said the same about Trump. An ABC News poll found that a staggering 86% of voters believe Biden is “too old” to run again.
