Now even the Democrat friendly New York Times has turned on Joe Biden

The New York Times Editorial Board has called on President Joe Biden to leave the race for the White House after his disasterous debate against Republican rival Donald Trump.

They said Biden’s inadequate performance in the debate made it clear he is not the man he was four years ago.

Party donors and congressmen are said to have given the ailing President a week to ‘prove he is not dead’ after the car-crash showdown against Trump.

The Mail Online reports: Insiders described the 81-year-old’s performance as a ‘train wreck’ and a ‘dumpster fire’ – while some openly suggested he should step aside for another candidate.

Biden meandered through the 90-minute CNN spectacle, struggling to finish sentences and losing his train of thought multiple times in front of tens of millions of stunned TV viewers. 

And despite insisting he was ready to take the fight to Trump and courting LGBTQ voters in New York – including bringing Sir Elton John onstage with him – the President failed to convince key voters that ‘I’m Still Standing’.

In a blunt editorial, the broadsheet slammed him as a ‘shadow’ of his former self as they admitted the once ‘admirable’ politician ‘struggled to make it to the end of a sentence’.

In an article titled ‘To Serve His Country, President Biden Should Leave the Race’, they blasted his continued attempts to run as a ‘reckless gamble’ with the country’s future.

They said that the country needed ‘a stronger opponent’ to stand in the way of the ‘significant jeopardy to… democracy’ – a threat characterised by the Republican leader.

In a damning blow, the newspaper’s editorial board said: ‘There is no reason for the party to risk the stability and security of the country by forcing voters to choose between Mr. Trump’s deficiencies and those of Mr. Biden. It’s too big a bet to simply hope Americans will overlook or discount Mr. Biden’s age and infirmity that they see with their own eyes.’

They continued: ‘The clearest path for Democrats to defeat a candidate defined by his lies is to deal truthfully with the American public: acknowledge that Mr. Biden can’t continue his race, and create a process to select someone more capable to stand in his place to defeat Mr. Trump in November.
