President Biden's Post-Debate Drama: A Democratic Rift Unfolds

After his CNN debate performance, President Joe Biden retaliated against a fellow Democrat who was enlisting legislators to oppose his reelection. The president asserted in an interview with ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos that, despite being eighty-one years old, he is fully physically and intellectually capable of serving another four years. The Washington Post revealed just before the interview, which was initially scheduled to air on Sunday, that Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) was enlisting Democrats to challenge Biden for the Democratic Party's candidacy. The Post reports that "people familiar with private conversations who spoke on the condition of anonymity to speak freely" claim that Warner is advising Democratic senators that Biden can not win the election after his wobbly debate performance. Warner has expressed to others his extreme worry that Biden would not be able to lead a campaign that defeats outgoing President Donald Trump." "Mark is a decent guy. Without giving a time frame, Biden said, "He also attempted to obtain the nomination." "Mark and I see things differently. He has my respect. Democratic leaders, according to Biden, have all urged him to "stay in the race." When asked whether he had seen the debate again, Biden did not immediately respond, instead blaming his performance in the debate on a "bad night." "Have you ever watched the post-debate?" Philippopoulos enquired. Biden said, "I do not think I did, no."
