First Congressional Democrat Calls for Biden to Drop Out

LBJ Library

After Joe Biden's disastrous debate performance last week, we have seen many including many on the Left, call for the president to get out of the race.

Even the New York Times has said Biden should step down.

Now, at least one Democratic member of Congress is saying the same thing publicly.

On Tuesday, Democratic Texas Rep. Lloyd Doggett became the first congressional Democrat to say Biden should end his bid for the presidential nomination of his party.

“My decision to make these strong reservations public is not done lightly nor does it in any way diminish my respect for all that President Biden has achieved,” Doggett said in a statement. “Recognizing that, unlike Trump, President Biden’s first commitment has always been to our country, not himself, I am hopeful that he will make the painful and difficult decision to withdraw. I respectfully call on him to do so.”

Doggett claimed to have warned the White House on Friday that he was going to be taking this stance against Biden and also “made his feelings known” to House Democratic leadership.

“After the debate, the risk of a Trump presidency has grown so much that I felt forced to take this action,” Doggett said.

Don't be surprised if you see more of this from other Democrats.

Trying to excuse his poor performance at a North Carolina campaign rally on Friday, Biden told the crowd, “I know I’m not a young man. 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.”

The media is helping Biden share this talking point... but it's not true.

Biden has been caught lying many times.

This strategy of saying Biden debated terribly but always tells the truth not only is incorrect, but good luck getting voters to believe it.

Good luck with Joe Biden all around after his train wreck with Trump.

A type of luck that at least Rep. Lloyd Doggett does not want to press.
