MSNBC: Biden’s Staff Must Be Allowed On Stage To ‘Answer Questions For Him’ in Second Debate

Fact checked by The People's Voice Community

Joe Biden’s staff should be allowed on stage with him in the second presidential debate to answer questions that are too difficult for him, according to MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell.

According to O’Donnell, this suggestion has nothing to do with Biden’s inability to debate Trump due to obvious and worsening cognitive decline.

Instead, O’Donnell claims “this is how government works” and the president has the right to forget facts, figures, and details and rely on “experts” around him to provide him with the answers. Watch:

While MSNBC continues to prop up the failing Biden campaign, multiple senior Democrats have called for the 81-year-old Biden to stand down citing his underwater approval ratings.

During a private call convened by Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries on Sunday, Reps. Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.), Adam Smith (D-Wash.), Mark Takano (D-Calif.) and Joe Morelle (D-N.Y.) forcefully called for Biden to stand down.

Politico reports: The additional calls for Biden to stand aside from senior Democrats come after the president’s interview last week with ABC News did nothing to assuage concerns among rank-and-file lawmakers about his continued viability in the race.

Members have repeatedly urged the president to quickly schedule more unscripted events and town halls to continually demonstrate his vitality and energy.

It’s not just the House either. A group of Senate Democrats are reportedly planning a discussion of Biden’s path forward, led by Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.), once that chamber returns to Washington on Monday.

Five House Democrats have publicly urged Biden to stand down, while numerous others have expressed concerns about his viability in private.

Jeffries has spoken little publicly on Biden’s future since the debate, but mysteriously posted a Bible verse on the social media platform X on Sunday morning before the call. “Do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go,” the Democratic leader wrote.

Democratic ire at Biden’s response during the ABC News interview that only “the Lord almighty” could force him from the presidential contest continued to bubble up on Sunday.

“We have to win this election,” said Sen. Peter Welch (D-Vt.) on MSNBC. “This isn’t a decision for Lord almighty. This is a real-world decision for real-world people in politics who care about our country.”
