Joe gets his mulligan: Biden will sit down for another primetime interview

Despite rising calls for him to step out of the race, President Joe Biden is doubling down with another primetime television interview.

Biden’s debate performance made obvious what everyone who has been paying attention already knew: He is not the man he used to be. Even staunch Democrats and their allies are asking him to step aside and let a different candidate take his place in the race for president.

It appears that Team Biden isn’t ready to throw in the towel, however, and has scheduled yet another sit-down interview with “NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt” which will air on July 15.

This comes hot on the heels of a rather dubious interview with ABC News’s George Stephanopolous, during which the president claimed he has “a cognitive test every single day.”

“Every day, I’ve had tests. Everything I do. You know, not only am I campaigning, I’m running the world. And that’s not — it sounds like hyperbole, but we are the central nation of the world,” Biden said.

He also flat-out rejected anyone asking him to leave the race.

“If the Lord Almighty came down and said, ‘Joe, get out of the race’, I’d get out of the race, but the Lord Almighty’s not coming down.”

Stephanopolous himself became part of the news following his chat with Biden after being asked by a passerby whether he thinks the president should step aside. The host responded with a shocking “I don’t think he can serve four more years” which quickly went viral, much to ABC News’ chagrin.

As BizPac Review reported, an ABC News head gave the loose-lipped host a stern lecture on his candid behavior and even reportedly warned that he may be taken off the air if he didn’t issue an apology.

“This was a fully-fledged crisis and it exploded with far-reaching reverberations,” said an anonymous insider.

X users weighed in on the news Biden would be attempting yet another interview, likely in the hopes to rehab his public image and restore faith in his leadership abilities:
