 Oh My God!”: Democrats Panic Over Biden’s Debate Performance, John King Insights


The red phone is ringing off the hook at the DNC. CNN’s chief national correspondent John King shared his insights on President Joe Biden’s performance during the highly anticipated debate rematch against former President Donald Trump, which many believe could determine the White House occupant in 2025.

When asked for his thoughts by Anderson Cooper, King didn’t hold back. “Anderson, this was a game-changing debate in the sense that right now, as we speak, there is a deep, a wide, and a very aggressive panic in the Democratic Party,” he said.

The panic began almost immediately. “It started minutes into the debate and it continues right now,” King explained. “It involves party strategists, it involves elected officials, it involves fundraisers —and they’re having conversations about the president’s performance, which they think was dismal, which they think will hurt other people down the ticket and they’re having conversations about what they should do about it”, reported WWLP.

He continued: “Some of those conversations include ‘Should we go to the White House and ask the president to step aside?’ The conversations are about ‘Should prominent Democrats go public with that call because they feel this debate was so terrible?'”

The 81-year-old incumbent Biden spoke in a raspy, almost drifting manner when he tried to strike points against a much more crisp and cogent Republican counterpart, 78-year-old Donald Trump. Despite prepping for weeks at Camp David, Biden’s shaky performance has Democrats in a state of alarm.

King criticized Trump for having “broken the fact check machine more than I can count tonight,” but emphasized that Biden’s showing may be unfixable. “I can tell you it started minutes in, it started with the first couple of answers and it has continued throughout the night for my ‘Oh my God! Oh my God! Oh my God!'”

“To ‘What do we do about this?’ and it involves very senior people in the Democratic Party, including elected officials, saying we have a problem.” CNN’s Abby Phillip also commented on the hysteria from the left. “I mean, the panic that I am hearing from Democrats is not like anything that I have heard in this campaign so far,” she said.

The debate has sparked frantic discussions among top Democrats, raising questions about Biden’s capability to lead the party into the 2024 election. With strategists, officials, and fundraisers deeply concerned about the impact of Biden’s performance, the Democratic Party faces a critical juncture in deciding its next steps.
