Democrats Squabble Over Joe Biden’s Poor Debate Performance

After last night’s poor debate performance by Joe Biden, many were concerned for the well-being of the president. However, Kamala Harris and Gavin Newsom took to Biden’s defense.

“What we saw tonight is the president making a very clear contrast with Donald Trump on all the issues that matter to the American people,” Harris told CNN’s Anderson Cooper. “Yes, there was a slow start, but it was a strong finish. And what became very clear through the course of the night is that Joe Biden is fighting on behalf of the American people, on substance, on policy, on performance.”

CNN’s Anderson Cooper pointed out to Harris that even amongst democrats, polls showed that Biden’s debate performance was a “train wreck.”

However, Harris, said that while Biden’s style was different from Trump’s, she still considers him to the candidate of “substance.”

Harris, however, isn’t the only one from the Left who came to the president’s defense.

In an interview with MSNBC, California Gov. Gavin Newsom also said that this is not the moment for democrats to turn their backs on Biden.

“We’ve got to go in, we’ve got to keep our heads high,” Newsom said. “You don’t turn your back because of one performance. What kind of party does that?”

“This president has delivered. We need to deliver for him at this moment,” Newsom continued.

However, despite support from Harris and Newsom, Biden himself admitted that his debate skills were lacking.

“Folks, I don’t walk as easy as I used to. I don’t speak as smoothly as I used to. I don’t debate as well as I used to. But I know what I do know. I know how to tell the truth,” Biden said during a rally on Friday.
