Another Democratic lawmaker has weighed in on President Biden’s mental fortitude and whether he is capable of holding office for a second term.

Rep. James Clyburn, D-S.C., admitted to NBC in a Friday interview that Biden is not the same person as he was four years ago, but asserted that he is still ‘mentally’ fit with one of the ‘best minds’ he’s ever worked with.

‘You’re traveling with him next week, you’ve spent more time with the president than just about anybody else in the House, is this the same Joe Biden that we saw two years ago?’ interviewer Craig Melvin asked Clyburn, who had endorsed Biden in the 2020 presidential race. 

‘Well, look, I grew up in…’ Clyburn started to say before he was asked again, ‘Is it the same Joe Biden?’ 

‘No,’ Clyburn said emphatically, adding that, ‘I’m not the same Jim Clyburn that I was four years ago.’ 

Clyburn later said he doesn’t think Biden, physically, is the same as he was during the last presidential election cycle. 

‘Mentally, I do think so,’ Clyburn declared. ‘He is still grasping what this country is all about.’ 

‘He has one of the best minds that I have ever been around. The people who’ve been around him will tell you that, and so I would hope that we will focus on the substance of this man, rather than these sometimes, misspoken words and phrases, and how he has run this country.’

Biden faced a wave of mockery online Thursday after he introduced Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy as ‘President Putin’ ahead of his press conference.

During the conference, Biden also referred to his Republican opponent, former President Donald Trump, as his vice-president.

Biden was peppered with questions from reporters who pressed him on whether he would step aside amid mounting pressure from members within his own party following his disastrous debate performance last month.

The president dismissed the notion he’s ‘slowing down’ and insisted he was ‘determined on running’ in this year’s election.

Congress’ first week back in session since President Biden’s disastrous debate performance brought with it a mountain of media scrutiny for his fellow Democrats — much to the relief of House Republicans who have grown used to being mobbed by reporters for much of this term.

‘We have really passed the baton of overthrowing political norms to the Democrats who are now running toward the greatest overthrow I’ve ever seen,’ one House GOP aide told Fox News Digital.

Party leaders hoped members would lie low this week to avoid making news as Democrats wrestled with demanding their own presidential nominee off the ballot less than six months away from the election, according to a House Republican granted anonymity to discuss it.

Meanwhile, a second House GOP aide cautioned, ‘All Republicans need to do is keep our heads down and stay out of it.’

The 118th Congress has been marked by intense infighting within the House GOP that’s dominated headlines over the last 18 months. Republican rebels ousted their own party’s House speaker for the first time in history, and factions of GOP lawmakers have used their slim majority to hold up House floor proceedings in order to extract concessions from leaders.

However, this past week, Republican lawmakers were largely ignored as reporters chased Democrats through the Capitol. 

‘I’ve gotta say, hasn’t been this much fun to be a House Republican since…well..yesterday. Monday was pretty cool too,’ Rep. Nancy Mace, R-S.C., posted on X on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, Rep. Stephanie Bice, R-Okla., posted a photo of herself grinning alongside House GOP Conference Chairwoman Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., and Rep. Erin Houchin, R-Ind., and wrote, ‘Leaving the Speaker’s office, and for one of the first times in three and a half years, there were no press waiting to ask questions…. I wonder why?’

Rep. French Hill, R-Ark., told Fox News Digital of this week’s difference in attention, ‘It’s highly unusual to walk out of a House conference meeting and find zero reporters asking questions.’

Almost as if right on cue, Rep. Jim Himes, D-Conn., quipped jokingly from nearby, ‘Are we finally getting back to the press asking Republicans about their presidential candidate?’ 

Hours later, Himes became part of the now 18 House Democrats calling for Biden to step aside.

Meanwhile, others on the right are insisting that House Republicans should double-down on their own messaging while chaos ensues on the left.

‘Republicans are focused on the Republican platform and our own campaigns…and we’re letting the Democrats sort through their best strategy for Joe Biden,’ a second House GOP lawmaker granted anonymity told Fox News Digital.

House Speaker Mike Johnson, R-La., urged Republicans to continue hammering President Biden on policy, suggesting Democrats’ political strife is best left to themselves.

‘We need to be talking about the answers we have to all the great challenges that have been created by the policies of the Biden administration,’ he told Fox News Digital. ‘Our candidates have been very well in going out and presenting those answers in a very credible way. We feel very good about what we’re doing.’

A senior House GOP aide told Fox News Digital, ‘What happened this week required minimal effort on our part.’

‘Dems have needed no help imploding on their own. It’s genuinely shocking to see how ill-equipped their members have been at handling slightly uncomfortable hallway questions,’ the aide said.

However, not everyone on the right appreciates the silence. 

‘I actually like you guys. That’s why I’m a sucker, I enjoy talking to you all,’ the first House GOP lawmaker who spoke with Fox News Digital said with a smile.

President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris are defying critics calling for the president to step away from the 2024 presidential race by launching a full offensive aimed at tying former President Trump to the Heritage Foundation’s Project 2025 platform.

The effort comes amid Trump’s attempt to distance himself from Project 2025, a highly scrutinized initiative that’s been portrayed as a blueprint for a future Republican administration to restructure many parts of the U.S. government. Trump has described elements of the plan as ‘ridiculous’ and ‘abysmal.’

It also comes as Biden faces increased calls from many in his own party to bow out of the race following a disappointing showing in the first presidential debate last month. 

‘Donald Trump’s Project 2025 team is stacked with the same extremists who helped him rip away women’s freedoms, round up and deport Latinos, and undermine our democracy in his first term,’ Biden campaign spokeswoman Sarafina Chitika told Fox News Digital.

‘If Trump wins this election, his Project 2025 allies will work around the clock to make sure he can go even further to ban abortion nationwide, gut Social Security and Medicare, and rule as a ‘dictator on day one.’ Donald Trump and Project 2025 are one and the same — and voters are going to make sure they both lose this November.’

Although it’s not officially associated with Trump’s campaign, Chitika’s use of the term ‘Trump’s Project 2025 team’ is a reference to the individuals who created the initiative in 2023 largely having previously held roles within the former president’s administration, including Paul Dans, who directed the project and served as Trump’s White House Liaison to the Office of Personnel Management. 

Dans’ associates constructing the initiative, Spencer Chretien and Troup Hemenway, served respectively as a special assistant to Trump and in the Presidential Personnel Office. In fact, 81% of individuals who worked on the initiative held formal roles within the Trump administration, and some current aides have also assisted with the project.

Biden and Harris’ rhetoric on the campaign trail in recent weeks has sought to shift focus to the project, not just as a likely distraction from the pressure facing Biden, but also because they see it as a winning message to moderate swing state voters who could very well decide the election.

‘Trump’s advisers have created a 900-page blueprint — called ‘Project 2025’ — detailing everything else they plan to do in a second term, including a plan to cut Social Security, repeal our $35 cap on insulin, eliminate the Department of Education and end programs like Head Start,’ Harris said at a campaign stop in Nevada on Tuesday.

‘Donald Trump wants to turn our democracy into a dictatorship, and the Supreme Court basically just declared he can get away with it,’ she later added, referencing the Supreme Court’s ruling last week that a president has substantial immunity from prosecution for official acts committed while in office.

Trump disavowed Project 2025 in a post on Truth Social last week, saying he didn’t know who was behind the initiative that offers recommendations on how a future Republican president can begin to enact conservative changes upon entering office, including overhauling the Justice Department and the FBI, as well as tackling issues like abortion and immigration.

‘I know nothing about Project 2025. I have no idea who is behind it,’ Trump wrote. ‘I disagree with some of the things they’re saying and some of the things they’re saying are absolutely ridiculous and abysmal. Anything they do, I wish them luck, but I have nothing to do with them.’

Trump’s campaign took aim at the attempts to tie him to Project 2025 on Thursday, telling Fox News Digital, ‘Agenda 47 and President Trump’s RNC Platform are the only policies endorsed by President Trump for a second term.

‘Team Biden and the DNC are LYING and fear-mongering because they have NOTHING else to offer the American people. Remember this is the same group that lied to Americans and hid Joe Biden’s cognitive decline all these years.’

President Biden is now declaring he would leave the 2024 race for the White House if polls showed there was ‘no way’ he could win, after only a week ago saying it would take the ‘Lord Almighty’ for him to drop out.

The 81-year-old president is facing mounting calls to step aside from members of his own party amid concerns he does not have the physical or mental strength to beat former President Trump nor carry out another four-year term.

Biden took questions from reporters in an hourlong press conference Thursday night as he sought to allay those concerns. The event came on the heels of Washington, D.C.’s NATO summit, though the media’s questions largely focused on Biden’s re-election.

One reporter asked the president whether he would reconsider staying in the race if his own team presented data showing Vice President Kamala Harris doing better against Trump than himself.

‘No,’ Biden said. ‘Unless they came back and said, there’s no way you can win. Me.’

The president added in his trademark whisper, ‘There’s no one saying that. No poll says that.’

Nearly a week ago last Friday, however, he told ABC News host George Stephanopoulos that his political fate was up to deities rather than data.

Per the network’s unedited transcript of the interview, Biden said, when asked whether he would drop out if he was convinced by allies that he could not beat Trump, ‘It depends on- on if the Lord Almighty comes down and tells me that, I might do that.’

When pressed again, he insisted, ‘Look. I mean, if the Lord Almighty came down and said, ‘Joe, get outta the race,’ I’d get outta the race. The Lord Almighty’s not comin’ down.’

Fox News Digital reached out to the Biden campaign for comment.

A new NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll released Friday morning shows Biden two points ahead of Trump in a head-to-head rematch, though Trump is one percentage point above Biden when factoring in third-party options. Both results fell within the survey’s 3.1% margin of error.

Several of Biden’s supporters lauded his press conference performance Thursday night, arguing he showed a commanding and clear sense of foreign policy experience. Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., told CNN’s Anderson Cooper, ‘I think he convinced a lot of people he should stay in the race.’

For others, however, it was too late. Three more House Democrats called on Biden to step aside after the press conference, including Rep. Jim Himes, D-Conn., the top Democrat on the House permanent select committee on Intelligence.

As of Friday morning, there are 20 Congressional Democrats who have publicly called on Biden to drop out.

Make America Great Again Inc., a top super PAC supporting former President Trump’s 2024 White House campaign, says it raked in $104 million during the April-June second quarter of 2024 fundraising.

And in figures shared first with Fox News on Friday, MAGA Inc. highlighted that it has nearly $114 million cash-on-hand in its coffers.

The announcement from MAGA Inc. comes a week and a half after Trump’s campaign showcased that it and the Republican National Committee hauled in a staggering $331 million in the past three months, topping the massive $264 million raked in by President Biden’s re-election campaign and the Democratic National Committee during the second quarter.

Trump’s haul was fueled in part by a fundraising surge following the former president’s history-making guilty verdicts this spring in his criminal trial.

The super PAC announced a month ago that it would spend $100 million this summer on a major ad blitz in the key battleground states in support of the former president.

And Securing American Greatness, a non-profit advocacy group run by MAGA Inc CEO Taylor Budowich, has also been running ads taking aim at Biden.

Budowich and MAGA Inc.’s finance team are expected to huddle for a series of individual meetings with top donors at next week’s Republican National Convention in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

‘MAGA Inc. has been entrusted with a significant responsibility thanks to the historic support of our investors,’ Budowich said. ‘We will continue to execute diligently in support of President Trump and do the work necessary to ensure he is restored to the White House.’

The super PAC’s second quarter fundraising haul was fueled by a massive $60 million in contributions from Timothy Mellon, the billionaire donor and an heir to the Mellon banking fortune.

Conservative mega-donors Richard and Elizabeth Uihlein, founders of a major shipping supplies company, combined contributed $10 million to MAGA Inc.

GOP mega donor and Texas billionaire Kelcy Warren, real estate and aerospace mogul Robert Bigelow, and business executive Linda McMahon, who steered the Small Business Administration during Trump’s tenure in the White House, each contributed $5 million to the super PAC.

MAGA Inc. also highlighted that it’s hauled in $275 million since its launch in October 2022.

The bar could not have been lower, nor the stakes higher for President Joe Biden than they were for his prime time press conference on Thursday night. 

And while he just barely cleared the bar and likely lived to fight another day, the stakes for him and the nation remain just as high.

Yes, there were stumbles and gaffes. Even before the press conference, he introduced Ukrainian President Vlodomyr Zelenskyy as ‘President Putin’ at a NATO event, and later at the presser, he confused his own Vice President Kamala Harris with Donald Trump. But on the Biden bungling scale those are barely bumps in the road.

More troubling was the soft whispery voice, the now-and-then return to the distant stare, the difficulty finishing sentences, and an awkward reference to First Lady Jill Biden getting angry with him. Still, for Biden these were not jaw-dropping moments, like we saw in Atlanta two weeks ago.

So, did Biden do enough up there alone on the podium, responding to question after question about his mental and physical abilities to save his candidacy or even his presidency?

Rep. Jim Himes, a powerful Connecticut Democrat on the Intelligence Committee didn’t think so, posting on X just minutes after the press conference that Biden should drop out. But the honest answer to whether Biden righted the ship of his campaign is an underwhelming ‘maybe.’

We now know that at least one conversation about Biden’s future has taken place between Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi, grand poohbahs of the Democratic Party. How impressed were they by Biden’s performance? Hard to say.

The underlying problem has not been fixed, because there is still every reason to believe that in the four months between now and election day we could see the Joe Biden of the debate again, even if we didn’t at Thursday’s press conference.

Team Biden certainly wants to believe that the event was a test that Biden passed and that we should all turn the page on the whole scandal. Yet there is very little chance of that, in large part because Biden himself, and his mental condition, are still the main story.

It was telling, in fact, how little news the first solo presidential press conference in months produced about anything other than the president’s fitness for office, or lack thereof.

Under normal circumstances, we would be talking about Biden once again throwing Israel under the bus by answering a question on whether he could have done anything different in response to the conflict in Gaza by saying he wished the Israeli War Cabinet had listened to him more often.

But that ridiculous answer, like every other answer he gave was utterly irrelevant. Nobody was paying attention to the content of the words, just whether or not the president of the United States could successfully say them in order.

The entire political focus of the nation cannot be on whether its most powerful leader is having a good day or a bad day. Not for the next four months, and certainly not for the next five years.

That just isn’t sustainable. The entire political focus of the nation cannot be on whether its most powerful leader is having a good day or a bad day. Not for the next four months, and certainly not for the next five years. Yet, that is still what we are looking at.

For Democrats, this was just about the worst performance Biden could have given. It wasn’t bad enough to open the floodgates on calls to step down, but it wasn’t good enough to make Americans stop wondering and worrying about the president’s condition.

And so we are stuck, right where we were before Biden took to the stage. Even if he stopped the immediate bleeding, and it isn’t even entirely clear he did that, he is still deeply, if not mortally wounded politically.

Joe Biden’s obstinate reply to growing concerns about his age and fitness has always been, ‘watch me.’ Well, Mr. President, we are. In fact it is all we are watching, it is all we can see, and there is real reason to believe that will never, ever change.

Former President Donald Trump maintains a lead over President Biden following the latter’s disastrous debate performance last month, according to a new Pew Research Center survey.

According to the poll, Trump currently holds an approval rate of 44%, while Biden trails with 40% — with Trump leading Biden by double digits on three key issues.

Approximately 68% of respondents told Pew Research that they are generally unsatisfied with their available choices for the presidential election.

The report published Thursday is Pew’s first to come out since Biden’s confused and sometimes unintelligible performance at the first 2024 presidential debate.

Only about 24% of voters describe Biden as ‘mentally sharp’ — a 6 point drop since January and a whopping 22% decline since Oct. 2020, according to Pew. Approximately 58% of respondents described Trump as such.

Trump’s advantage over Biden comes from his dominant position on three issues important to voters: immigration, the economy and foreign policy. 

Trump holds a 17 point lead over Biden on immigration policy (52-35%), a 14 point lead over Biden on economic policy (54-40%), and a 10 point lead on foreign policy (49-39).

Biden netted an 8 point advantage over Trump on bipartisanship (40-32%) and a 4 point advantage on abortion issues (48-44%).

Third-party candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. received one of his largest cuts of the electorate in a major poll yet, netting 15% of respondents.

The Pew survey was conducted by live interviewers online or by telephone between July 1 and July 7. Pew Research Center contacted 9,424 adults, 7,729 of which were registered voters.

The pool of respondents was weighted to represent ‘gender, race, ethnicity, partisan affiliation, education and other factors’ in the U.S. adult population. The poll has a margin of error of approximately 1.3 percentage points.

The vaunted saviors of democracy in the Democratic Party were ready to throw out all the norms this summer to make sure voters keep them in power. Unfortunately for them, the calendar is not their friend.  

With just four months before the general election ends, Democrats and their advocates in the media began floating the idea of changing the primary rules just ahead of the finish line.  

Calling for a ‘blitz primary,’ two influential Democrats this past week unveiled a plan to essentially redo the primary. 

Candidates, including Vice President Kamala Harris, would have one month to campaign to delegates of the Democratic National Committee ahead of the Aug. 19 convention. Star-studded candidate forums would be held weekly. The nominee would be selected via ranked choice voting at convention.  

It’s an entirely new process, thrown together on the fly. One that seeks to preserve power by disenfranchising the party’s own voters. And one that requires them to find an extra-constitutional way to oust a sitting president of their own party – since Biden has made it clear he’s not going anywhere, at least for the moment.   

It’s not going to work this time. You don’t get to redo your primary because someone had a bad debate or the truth is suddenly exposed. You don’t get to change the rules the moment it looks like you won’t win. They are stuck with Biden-Harris.

Democratic voter calls Biden’s performance ‘shocking’

Too many voters have had enough of the gaslighting, the dishonesty, and the hyperbole of Democrats in government and media since the debate exposed their duplicity. The debate was an a-ha moment for many voters (excepting, of course, those who tune in to Fox News. You all saw this coming from a mile away). Since the debate, the truth that Democrats have so desperately tried to hide has been on full display.

They have only themselves to blame if voters now exhibit a new skepticism of the party that laughably purports to save democracy. 

The proposal to change the primary rules this close to the finish line is an obvious rejection of the democratic process. The idea of erecting an entirely new primary system after Democrats deliberately rigged them the first time is unfair to their own voters. Not to mention the other candidates who played by the rules.

Kevin McCarthy: This is their Watergate moment

More voters may now come to realize that for Democrats, gaming the system is par for the course. They aren’t protectors of democracy. They’re protectors of power.  

Even as the party made former President Trump’s alleged ‘threat to democracy’ a central theme of the race, the president’s party is quick to jettison democratic processes that don’t augment their power. Apparently democracy is expendable when Democrats are at risk of losing power.

Newly skeptical voters can find a consistent pattern of Democrats subverting democratic processes if they look for it.  

CNN

Throwing out the votes of Democratic primary voters? Just the beginning.  

Threatening to restructure the Supreme Court when rulings don’t go their way? Or to eliminate the Electoral College when their message isn’t appealing broadly enough? They don’t think twice.  

Banning, censoring and gagging a presidential candidate whose message they don’t like? No problem.  

Speaker Johnson: Democrats are in

Unlawfully registering illegal immigrants to vote? What do you think?

But this time it’s different. Voters are catching on. How is this saving democracy?  

Voters understand you don’t get to redo your primary just because someone had a bad debate. You don’t get to rewrite the rules every time your party suffers a setback.  

Biden

Democrats are likely stuck with Joe Biden and Kamala. Harris. Time is too short. It’s too late to change the campaign finance rules that govern Biden’s campaign fund, or the party rules that govern who can be on the ballot in each state.  

More importantly, there is no mechanism to force Biden out simply because he might lose. Although Democrats have likely frantically looked for one.

As the ugly truth sets in, debate watchers who trusted their government and their media have to be asking serious questions. If Trump is such a threat to democracy, why are Democrats the ones breaking all the norms?

A former Democrat lawmaker in South Carolina, who has donated thousands of dollars to President Biden’s re-election campaign, warned about Biden’s age in 2019 while supporting Vice President Kamala Harris’s failed presidential campaign.

‘Joe Biden has been running for president since before I was born,’ Bakari Sellers told Politico in 2019 while serving as a surrogate for the Harris campaign.

‘Joe Biden is nearly 80 years old and he’s running to be president of the United States,’ Sellers said. ‘My dad was president of an HBCU and will be 75 this year and his doctors told him he couldn’t do it anymore.’

Sellers, a CNN political analyst who formerly served in South Carolina’s House of Representatives from 2006 to 2014, said his dad, who served for 7 years as the president of Voorhees College, a South Carolina historically black college, ‘didn’t have the energy and strength to lead that campus anymore.’ He went on to say it ‘doesn’t mean he wasn’t a great man and a great leader and a great visionary.’

‘It is a justifiable conversation,’ he continued.

Sellers also took aim at presidential candidates Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren over age concerns during the Democratic presidential primary in 2019.

‘The three front-runners are all older than Ronald Reagan was when he took over,’ Sellers said. ‘Democrats are afraid of criticism, which is silly to me. But we are going to have a contentious primary on vigor and issues about fitness to be president.’

Sellers, who donated $10,000 to the Biden Victory Fund and $6,600 to Biden’s re-election campaign last year, making him a maxed-out donor, has repeatedly defended Biden against criticisms about his age in recent weeks, including this week when he said it was ‘patently absurd’ to be having a discussion about a Parkinsons specialist visiting the White House.

On Thursday night, Sellers responded to Biden’s hour-long press conference by posting on X that Biden was ‘doing well’ and reposted a post from NBC analyst Vin Gupta, a doctor, defending Biden’s press conference.

‘[Biden] demonstrated tonight that he continues to function at a high-level for his age,’ Gupta said. ‘Yes, he had gaffes, which he’s been prone to throughout his career. Yet the substance was there after a series of tough questions, ably demonstrating breadth of experience. Strong performance.’

‘Biden would not only have to not run but he’d have to resign. Neither of which is happening,’ Sellers said last week. ‘Any article about his age that is absent the fact he’s accomplished bipartisan, put black woman on Supreme Court, brought economy back from brink after COVID is an emotional play. Because it’s clear even in his age he can do the job of POTUS.’

One of Sellers’ most notable defenses of Biden occurred less than an hour after the CNN debate between Biden and former President Trump.

‘Biden ain’t going nowhere. It’s June. Let go of your pearls and dry your bed. He lost a debate. Bad. But it’s June. You’re not replacing him,’ Sellers posted on June 27 on X. ‘So leave your random combinations in your chats. You’re not nominating Gretch or Gavin or Wes over Kamala. Stop it. Organize. Vote. We are winning every swing state senate race and gubernatorial race (NC). Relax.’

‘Choice is Trump, Biden or couch. I choose Joe. Night. Night,’ he continued.

Fox News Digital reached out to Sellers for comment but did not receive a response..

The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, Jim Himes, called on President Biden to suspend his 2024 re-election campaign, just moments after the president finished his highly anticipated press conference. 

Biden participated in a press conference with reporters at the end of the NATO summit in Washington D.C. on Thursday night. 

Biden, during the press conference, was peppered with questions from reporters who pressed him on whether he would step aside amid mounting pressure from members within his own party following his disastrous debate performance last month.

Biden said he is ‘determined’ to stay in the race and maintained that he is fit to serve as president now and for the next four years. 

But Rep. Jim Himes, D-Conn., sounded the alarm moments after the press conference concluded. 

‘Joe Biden’s record of public service is unrivaled,’ Himes posted on X. ‘His accomplishments are immense. His legacy as a great president is secure.’ 

‘He must not risk that legacy, those accomplishments and American democracy to soldier on in the face of the horrors promised by Donald Trump,’ Himes posted on X.  

In a statement, Himes continued that it has been ‘the honor’ of his career to work with Biden on ‘achievements that secured his remarkable legacy in American history.’ 

‘It is because of those traits, and in consideration of that legacy, that I hope President Biden will step away from the presidential campaign,’ Himes said. 

A short time later, Rep. Scott Peters, D-Calif., also called on Biden to drop out of the race.

‘The stakes are high, and we are on a losing course,’ Peters said in a statement. ‘My conscience requires me to speak up and put loyalty to the country and to democracy ahead of my great affection for, and loyalty to, the President and those around him.’

Peters is the 16th Democrat in the House of Representatives to call on the president to step aside. 

Biden, though, currently has the support of House Democratic Leader Hakeem Jeffries and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer.
