Biden is facing a fair amount of scrutiny after a poor debate performance Thursday.

A Democrat Congressman from New York compared former vice president and 2020 presidential candidate Joseph R. Biden Jr. to an aging Muhammad Ali after Thursday night’s Democratic Primary debate.

“I thought of Muhammad Ali to be quite honest with you, who I loved dearly,”said Rep. Gregory Meeks (D-N.Y.). “I thought of his career. He wasn’t the same at the end of his career than he was at the beginning of his career.”

Meeks joined CNN’s Poppy Harlow on “CNN Newsroom” Friday morning, where Harlow asked him what he thought about Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) calling Biden out for praising segregationist Senators on the debate stage.

“Clearly, the first round has gone to Kamala Harris and there’s going to be a second round,” Meeks continued. “Is [Biden] going to come back or not? The second round will become tremendously important.”

After Biden’s performance Thursday night, rumors have swirled about turmoil within his campaign.

Big League Politics reported:

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.”
