REPORT: Biden Staff ‘Freaking Out’ Over Poor Debate Performance

One reporter said the Biden campaign is reeling from a poor debate performance.

According to a New York Magazine correspondent who spoke with a source “close to the Biden campaign” towards the end of last night’s Democratic Party primary debate, Biden’s staff was not pleased with his poor performance.

“A source close to the Biden campaign tells me his staff is ‘freaking out’ about his poor performance tonight,” Olivia Nuzzi reported on Twitter. “The source said that internally, field staff says the campaign-organized debate watch parties in early voting states have been ‘awkward’ and that Biden isn’t playing well to those who attended.”

“According to Biden’s staff, he isn’t listening to his debate prep and he’s ‘set in his ways,’ the source close to the campaign tells me,” Nuzzi Tweeted later.

Kate Bedingfield, a Biden spokeswoman, disputed Nuzzi’s report on Twitter, simply replying “Nope,” to her original Tweet:

But Biden clearly struggled during his first bout with the other candidates of his party. At the outset, Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) hit Biden for his age and long tenure in politics, seemingly catching him off guard.

“I was six years old when a presidential candidate came to the California democratic convention and said it’s time to pass the torch to a new generation of Americans. That candidate was then-Sen. Joe Biden. Joe Biden was right when he said it was time to pass the torch to a new generation of Americans 32 years ago, he’s still right today,” Swalwell said.

Biden responded awkwardly.

“I will hold onto that torch,” he said before pivoting away from the attack.

Later in the debate, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) walloped Biden for his recent praise of the segregationist Senators with whom he worked in the past. His response was bungled, and he refused to back off his previous comments.

Since the debate, criticism of Biden has abounded. Far-left morning show host and RussiaGate conspiracy theorist Joe Scarborough blasted Biden Friday morning on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

“Joe Biden had a bad night last night,” Scarborough said, later saying conceding the former vice president was not at the “top of his game” Thursday night.

Elizabeth Warren SLAMS Bernie’s Bros: “A Foundation of Hate”

Warren’s alliance with the democratic socialist is shattered.

Elizabeth Warren Baits and Switches College Students

Elizabeth Warren spoke in condemning terms about some of Democratic frontrunner Bernie Sanders’ supporters when speaking to NBC News on Tuesday, calling out some Sanders supporters for operating with a “foundation of hate.”

Sanders’ competitors and liberal mainstream media outlets have increasingly tried to tar his supporters in an effort to blunt the candidacy of the democratic socialist, as he appears well-positioned to take the nomination.

Warren’s previously warm relationship with the Vermont democratic socialist turned sour last month, when the Massachusetts Senator claimed Bernie told her a woman couldn’t be President. Sanders denied the accusation, and Warren went on to accuse him of calling her a liar on a live debate stage.

Warren accused Sanders supporters of organizing a harassment campaign against members of a Nevada culinary union that declined to support him.

I am particularly worried about what happened in the attacks on members of the culinary union, particularly on the women in leadership. That is not how we build an inclusive Democratic Party. … We do not build on a foundation of hate.

Warren’s line of attack is quite similar to neoliberal Democrats running implicit ‘Never Bernie’ campaigns. Authoritarian oligarch Michael Bloomberg has released ads claiming that Sanders’ movement represents a toxic mob.

Warren claims Sanders supporters are “publishing their personal addresses, their phone numbers, and then making very aggressive threats against their own safety and the safety of their families.

Joe Biden also condemned what he interprets as online hate from Sanders supporters, telling mainstream media flack Chuck Todd that the Vermont Senator bears “accountability.” Sanders himself seems skeptical of the narrative, asking who his supposedly malicious supporters are when pressed on the issue.

Heated rhetoric from online leftists now seems to be a front and center issue within the Democratic primary. It’s a bit less clear if the supposed online mobs are really harassing people, or if Sanders’ critics want a free pass from criticism.
