Biden Says He’s Done Talking About The Debate

With the leaders of NATO coming to Washington, D.C. at the end of the week, the president intends to show he still has command by holding what’s been dubbed a “big boy” press conference on Thursday.

“I guess a big boy press conference, we’re calling it, and take some questions from you all,” White House national security spokesman John Kirby called it while discussing Biden’s schedule.

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre also oddly used the term, saying Biden will “hold a press conference – a big boy press conference,” during questions about the president’s health and cognition earlier in the week.

“The White House frequently uses the term ‘press conference’ even for events where Biden stands side-by-side with a world leader and takes two questions from each side, usually calling from a pre-determined list, explained The Daily Mail.

One thing that has become clear, however, is that Joe Biden and his team are done talking about the CNN debate.

CNN writes that while the whirlwind spawned from the debate swirls around the White House, the president and his team have announced that they’re finished talking about it.

Nearly two weeks after President Joe Biden’s stunningly halting debate performance, many of his fellow Democrats are still fretting about it – and anxiously wondering whether Biden is really the party’s best bet to defeat Donald Trump in November.

But the president and his team are done talking about it.

Aides to the president told CNN that not only are they no longer interested in discussing Biden’s on-stage fiasco last month, and there are simply no outstanding questions about the president’s political future to debate. Biden is staying in the race, they say, and there is nothing that could change that.

It doesn’t matter how many more Democratic lawmakers might call on Biden to drop out; it doesn’t matter what news outlet releases a new editorial calling on the president to abandon his campaign for a second term; it doesn’t matter how Biden’s upcoming public appearances and interviews go.

“We’re done talking about the debate and focused on a singular mission: Defeating Donald Trump in November,” one Biden aide told CNN.

One Democrat who’s not done discussing Biden’s future, however, is former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, reported Semafor.

“This isn’t over.

That was the message Nancy Pelosi delivered subtly, but also loud and clear, in an appearance on Biden’s favorite news show on Wednesday. Refusing to directly endorse Biden’s continued candidacy, she instead pressed him to make a decision on his path that he publicly has already made. And she suggested he and Democrats hold off on considering the question until after this week’s NATO summit, which the White House has hoped will be a turning point for Democratic support.

‘It’s up to the president to decide if he is going to run,’ she said in a ‘Morning Joe’ interview on MSNBC. ‘We’re all encouraging him to make that decision because time is running short.’

‘Morning Joe is the President’s favorite show,’ one senior Democratic aide said. ‘She knows he’s watching. She’s not an idiot. She chose those words carefully.'”

During a CNN segment, David Axelrod asserted that Pelosi’s comments were in response to Biden’s letter to congressional Democrats earlier in the week.

“And what she’s saying, delicately and respectfully, is, ‘No, really the conversation isn’t over, and we still need to have this discussion,’” Axelrod claimed.

Obama’s former adviser mentioned that Congress members are evaluating their choices carefully. They are not just concerned about the possibility of former President Trump winning a second term; they are also worried about the potential loss of House and Senate seats if President Biden remains in office.
