Stephanopoulos sandbags Biden
Stephanopoulos: how will you feel in January if you lose to Trump? Biden: I would feel fine if I gave it my all.

The ABC interview is now over, and it is clear that it had a purpose. That purpose was to either convince Biden to quit, or based on the answers destroy his candidacy. It was the left-wing media that put Biden and the democrat party in this mess, and it was the top backstabber who delivered the knife.

The media lied about Biden's condition until they could lie no more. Senator Warner is leading a serious effort to get Biden off the ticket. The concern has always been about holding power and holding off the American people.

At this point I doubt Biden can go on.

The media will now prepare for a new narrative:

KEY FACTS




When asked if the debate was an episode or the result of his current condition—a question previously asked by former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi—Biden said he had a “bad episode.”

Biden and his campaign has said that his extensive training before the debate left him exhausted, but when ABC’s George Stephanopoulos asked why the week spent at Camp David before the debate wasn’t enough time to rest, Biden said he was really sick, saying he was tested to see whether he had an infection or a virus, and doubling down on his claim his poor performance was the result of a “really bad cold.”




Stephanopoulos also asked Biden if he watched the CNN debate with former President Donald Trump after it aired, to which Biden said: “I don’t think I did, no.”




When Stephanopoulos asked if Biden’s three-plus years in the Oval Office cost him anything physically or emotionally, Biden said it cost him a “really bad night,” claiming he’s “still in good shape,” though he said he would not take an independent neurological and cognitive test, arguing: “every day I have that test.”



Biden, who spoke in a soft, raspy voice during the interview, also claimed he “wasn’t in control” at the event, saying he was distracted at times when Trump seemed to be shouting—a new excuse offered for his performance—even though Biden said CNN turned off Trump’s microphone.



When asked if Biden is the “same man today” as he was when he took office in 2021, Biden said “in terms of successes, yes,” reiterating his argument that he should be evaluated based on his track record in the White House rather than his performance in the debate.



Biden boasted the addition of over 200,000 new jobs in the month of June,  according to  the Bureau of Labor Statistics, arguing he is still able to produce for the economy—though that BLS report also found job growth decreased from 218,000 in May, while the unemployment rate surpassed 4% for the first time in nearly three years.

The pandemic was quite the experience and it was informative about the MAGA movement's stream of consciousness and Donald's insistence on letting even MAGAs needlessly and heedless now. And, Donald has not confess a tittle of remorse, not even over and against the Covid-19 loss of "Mr. 999=tax plan" businessman Herman Cain (1945-2020). Our country needs a leader who can feel for the people. . . s/he serves and not the other way around.

Herman Cain, ex-presidential candidate who refused to wear mask, dies after COVID-19 diagnosis

Herman Cain, ex-presidential candidate who refused to wear mask, dies after COVID-19 diagnosis

(Reuters) - Herman Cain, a former Republican presidential candidate and supporter of President Donald Trump who pointedly refused to wear a mask during the coronavirus pandemic, has died after contracting COVID-19, his website said on Thursday.

Cain, 74, learned of his diagnosis on June 29, nine days after attending a Trump rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where he and many others crowded together without wearing face masks aimed at preventing the spread of the novel coronavirus.

He spent most of July in an Atlanta-area hospital.

"Herman had an incredible career and was adored by everyone that ever met him, especially me. He was a very special man, an American Patriot, and great friend," Trump wrote on Twitter.

Many Trump supporters have rejected the advice of public health experts and refused to wear masks, which can prevent the spread of the virus, making their defiance a type of political statement.

Just before announcing his diagnosis on July 2, Cain posted support for not mandating masks at a July 4 event at Mount Rushmore in South Dakota that Trump was planning to attend.

"Masks will not be mandatory for the event, which will be attended by President Trump. PEOPLE ARE FED UP!" he tweeted.

"Not to keep forcing the critically wounded racehorse to run more."

In the last while I've watched two movies about racehorses.  In the movie Dreamer the horse recovered from a broken leg to win the Breeder's Cup, and in the movie Seabiscuit the horse recovered from becoming lame to beat the most celebrated fastest horse in America by many lengths.  

But don't take my comment as an endorsement of Biden.  I personally don't think you have any possible candidate that would be acceptable to enough voters to become the best PotUS.  The person I think would be the right one was not acceptable by her own constituents because she chose personal integrity over party loyalty.  American voters don't deserve the best one.

Terry: So Bryan spoke first and then Trump after that. What did they actually say?

Specht: Bryan said that his team had done some experiments that found that sun exposure and disinfectants, cleaning agents like bleach, could kill COVID-19 on surfaces and in the air. He eventually steps aside and says, you know, this concludes my research, we have some good stuff to go on.

Then, Trump takes the mic and sort of riffs. He's looking back and forth at reporters, and then Bryan, who's sitting off to the side. And Trump says, speaking to reporters, you know, a question that a lot of you are probably thinking is, what if we hit the body — this is his words — with a tremendous ultraviolet or very powerful light — and I'm sort of paraphrasing here for the sake of clarity.

And then he turns to Bryan and says, I think you said that hasn't been checked, but you're going to test it, which you can do either through the skin or some other way, and I think you said you're gonna test that. Sounds interesting, right?

And he goes on, he says, and I see the disinfectant where it knocks it out in one minute. Is there a way we could do something like that by injection inside or almost a cleaning because you can see, it gets in the lungs — he's referring to the virus now — it does a tremendous number on the lungs, and I think it'd be interesting to check that. So he’s sort of rambling here and these comments created confusion.

Almost immediately after that, a reporter, who was sitting in this press briefing room asked him, did you just say you’re testing injections? And Bryan came back to the microphone and said no, no, that's not what we tested in our lab. And Trump also clarified, he said well, that's not what I meant, it wouldn't be through injections, it would be cleaning and sterilization of an area.

And so it appeared that they shut it down and clarified what they meant just moments later, but the press had already taken off with these comments that Trump made.

Terry: This whole conversation takes place in the larger context of Republicans being accused of minimizing the virus or turning to unscientific means to deal with it, right? It's not in a vacuum.

Specht: Right. And I don't remember the timing off the top of my head, but there were moments where some people appeared to downplay it and then offer alternative medicines. We saw that with hydroxychloroquine, a lot of Republicans speculated that that was a potential cure and studies showed that wasn't the case. We saw a lot of misinformation about what could and could not affect the coronavirus.

Terry: So how did you rate this claim by President Biden?

Specht: Mostly false.Trump did mention bringing UV rays and disinfectants into the body, but let's remember what Biden said. He said his predecessor, quote, "told Americans all they had to do was inject bleach in themselves, just take a shot of UV light." That is not what Trump said.

To be fair, I will give credit where credit is due. Many of us are alive today, because of the decision by President Trump to cut through the bureaucratic time-allotted period facing each and every new vaccine prospect. To be clear, the vaccine compounds to be studied, deployed, and eventually injected into people had already over twenty years of research "in the can" to support their basis. 

For a good deed done expeditiously, I can and do give even 'the devil' -himself- Donald, Thanks. Now for the other bulls—s, missteps, misinformations, disinformations, that makes lliving worse for half the country culturally and societally, and for the sum total and continuing to this day after his presidency  dishonesty of daily lying to me, you, the nation, the world, and 'beyond'. . .

Donald did sign it and for that he is to be commended. Because he could have tied it up in knots the same way the mask debacle went afterwards. I stand by my point (having taken 6 vaccines to date because of it). Fast-tracking the vaccines . . . saved lives. And thank you I had forgotten the proper wording: fast-tracking.

That said, you are free to disagree with me and vent your frustration with Donald on the point. :)

Nobody could make him put his signature on the document. He did it without being under 'force of arms.' In the future, if the 'imperial president' decides to not sign an essential document as an official duty. . . what 'force' in the country is going to MAKE him/her do it? Tell me, please.

And if we are going to credit/discredit any president for the good or harm s/he does in the past, present, or future . . . let's be consistent. Whether or not it s/he is 'vile' over all.

As the saying goes: 'Even a broken clock is right twice a day.' 

Call me 'foolish' if you like. . . I am grateful for the fast-tracking of the vaccines. . . I had elderly love-ones. . .with 'grands' sneezing, wheezing, around them constantly due to their 'ignorant' parents insistences. . .the vaccines in 2021 gave me some mental peace. . .as I was/am a 'caretaker.'

That was sad to watch. How selfish and delusional can Biden be to possibly believe he's qualified to run the country? 

Annie, Ashley and Anthony, the aides who apparently run the country and treat Biden like the guys did the corpse in Weekend at Bernies, have to be feeling their time as President is running out.

Democrats can't really have any serious discussions about replacing Biden until after the NATO summit next week.  (Biden has boxed in the 'bedwetters'.)  That buys time for Biden but, let's face it, Biden is only going to be a week older.

Dems could begin a beauty pageant for prospective anti-Trump surrogates.  Elevating Kamala Harris might be the conventional wisdom but we are living in unconventional times.  Don't be surprised if a number of contestants try sucking the air out of the news cycle.  If Biden's pomp and pageant of Putin fear doesn't compete with the wannabes then Jill Biden can expect some frank discussion before the RNC convention.  (Trump's choice of a running mate could upend the election again.  Will we see political pundits start wearing neck braces?)

It still looks like Biden lost reelection on a not-that-late Thursday night.  Apparently Biden isn't aware that the debate was split screen - and - we could see that Trump wasn't trying to distract Biden or talk over Biden.  Poor old, old, old Joe has exhausted all his excuses.  And now he can't hide in the basement.

This may be the first election in Biden's long political career when he's had to run on his record.  It's turning into a train wreck.

Yup, that's one way to put it.  Being the weird curmudgeon I am, I suspect Biden's handlers weren't expecting Trump to just stand there in his happy place while Biden was on live mic.  Biden's handlers may have even slipped Joe a downer so wouldn't wouldn't get too excited.  My suspicion is Biden's handlers prepped for the optics of Trump viciously abusing a sympathetic, elderly man with a poor memory.

So, it's still Trump's fault but this time Biden can't admit that.

It's Joe Biden or bust as the DNC continues the drive to keep Trump out of the White House.

Not long ago the message was "Biden is much more fit to be president than Trump" and now the message is ""We got throw the old guy on the scrap heap and move forward"

It's like a good thriller movie, waiting for the next shoe to drop

Vic

All the president had to answer was "Then the people of this country will have made a bad choice and will have to live with the consequences"

He was not sandbagged, if his people did not think that he would be asked that question and did not prepare him to answer it, then they and he are to blame not the interviewer.

What if Biden bows to pressure and drops out and then Trump ins, whose fault will that be?

Stephanopoulos did not say how Biden should feel if Trump wins, he asked how he would feel?

A legitimate question and by no means sandbagging

Biden was ill prepared for the debate and he was also ill prepared for the interview, he was not sandbagged - he was just Joe Biden being Joe Biden

At least some citizens think that is a problem for the country - Joe Biden being Joe Biden I mean of course.

And as for 

an aging family member who needed to confront reality.

Again many people of the country would argue that he is talked to that way by his staff and advisors on a daily basis.  Of course, there is no documented proof (testimony or videos) of that but it is how people feel going into election season.

That is the point of a good interview to force the interviewee to think outside the box, to have opinions and thoughts on the what if scenarios and to be prepared stand up and say "I don't know" or "It would be my fault" or "It would be no one's fault, the voice of the American people is to be listened and heeded and they would have spoken"

The fact that Biden was not fed softballs or given the questions before the interview to be prepared is not sandbagging it is good journalism.

Biden (and his followers) need to man up and accept that for the fact that it  is

Still kind of shocking that Joe's team would allow for an unscripted interview after the debate debacle. Reeks of desperation and did not go well. Should have only agreed to interviews where they supply the questions, like in his radio interviews they hand-fed the questions to the interviewer.

No way Bob. George Stephanopoulos has never been a journalist. He has held debates with Republicans under the guise of "interviews." It was only weeks ago that Stephanopoulos was covering for Biden. I'm sure the Biden campaign looked to him for a lifeline in this interview. The very fact that Stephanopoulos went so far from what had been his norm was striking.

I know I promised you the last word, but I must include this foot note:

ABC News anchor  George Stephanopoulos  apologized Tuesday for telling a stranger that he doesn't think President Biden can serve another four years in office.

Why it matters:  Stephanopoulos conducted a  closely watched interview  of the president last week. The primetime sit-down was a part of the White House's push to quell calls for Biden to  step aside  as the Democratic nominee following his  disastrous debate performance .

what, can you do it in 29 ...?   Cause with all that I hear from the rarely "right" is how disastrous our country is doing, yet, it is not disastrous. Our Country is far ahead of all others in recovery from a once in a century pandemic and the stock market sets records constantly. Inflation was high, but that was due to the pandemic and greed, not specific Biden policy. The border I will fault Biden for, as it could of and should have been handled much better, but it is not as disastrous as the Repubs make it out to be, for we need workers to do the jobs todays younger generations think they're above, and out of all those millions that are coming here to destroy US, there has been very scant evidence of this. Yes, there are some horrible individuals that Trump and the GOP attempt to paint all as being, but statistics do not bear this out, in fact, the opposite compared to 'citizens", so perhaps your pants are on fire, are you going to sharpen that 29 minutes up a bit ?

It's mind-numbing that "the dreamers" are likely heading towards what is it - middle-age and still do not have the certitude of their statuses as belonging to this country of their birth? The border problem is a mixture of many complex attitudes stretched across the country and those complexities exacerbated by political intrigue across many presidential/congressional paths. 

Biden is not the only president that fails on account of lack of will on this; Donald could not even get it done. . .even though his primary promise in 2016 for MAGA-sake was to built a wall that never materialized. Of course, as "Imperial president" should he win. . . that could drastically change. . . the southern border region. . . and we'll have to see how the farmers and ranchers and whomsoever feel about having their rights bulldozed into the ground by forced changes in the law of eminent domain.

Good point. It is wrong to cast millions of migrants fleeing hell-scapes in their own countries and looking to come invest their talents and skills in a better place as villains. It is wrong to forget that many millions of these people are positive people in their own homelands. . .whom simply can't take the hell and misery of home anymore. Thus, where good people end up they prosper the land around them positively. We should remember that, when the propaganda is stirred over a 'few' bad apples cast as the whole lot.

Biden, who spoke in a soft, raspy voice during the interview, also claimed he “wasn’t in control” at the event, saying he was distracted at times 

Distracted at times.  Yeah, I've heard the smell of air can do that to the dementia ridden.

When asked if Biden is the “same man today” as he was when he took office in 2021, Biden said “in terms of successes, yes,”

On that I can agree.  He was a failure in 2021, he's a failure now.
