Mehdi Hasan, the editor-in-chief of Zeteo and a former MSNBC host, urged President Joe Biden to “step aside” after his “car crash” performance against former President Donald Trump in CNN’s first presidential debate on Thursday.

“Joe Biden’s gotta go,” Hasan said.

“The Democrats need a new presidential candidate, and I say that as someone who has never said this before. I say that as someone who hasn’t spent the past few months obsessing over Joe Biden’s age or that he’s too senile. In fact, I’m someone who said Donald Trump is way more incoherent, way more demented than Joe Biden is. But not tonight.” he continued.

“Tonight was a car crash for the Biden presidency, for the Biden campaign. It was painful to watch. At times, I’m sorry, it felt like elder abuse. You had the 81-year-old president of the United States unable to finish his whispered sentences, looking like a deer in the headlights, unable to hit back against the convicted felon standing just a few feet away. This was the moment that I knew Joe Biden has to go.” he concluded.

Hasan then presented a clip from the debate when Trump mocked Biden for babbling incoherently.
