Biden Ironically Accuses Media Of Election Interference After Calls For Him To Drop Out


A prominent swing state newspaper calling for President Joe Biden to drop out of the race is being maligned by one of his top advisors who on Monday essentially accused the outlet of election interference.

The Atlanta Constitution-Journal, the city’s largest paper, called on the elderly Democrat to drop out of the race for the White House, prompting former Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms to issue a stern rebuke. Bottoms is now a senior local advisor to Biden.

“We have talked about making sure we’re protecting elections and making sure there’s no undue influence, this was undue influence by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution or an attempt to influence,” Bottoms said in response to the paper’s editorial titled “It’s Time to Pass the Torch.”

“Editorial boards are supposed to honor fair elections. I don’t think it’s fair when an editorial board with ten people sitting in a room are trying to influence an election, especially in a state like Georgia where there’s already been discussions about influencing elections.”

Bottoms added that she never saw the Constitution-Journal call for former President Donald Trump to step down after he asked state officials to “find” enough votes to change the outcome of the 2020 election. “So if you’re going to ask a candidate to step aside, let’s also look at Donald Trump’s record and all of the reasons, including his indictment in Fulton County, trying to influence the secretary of state, his convictions.”


In its editorial, the Constitution-Journal summed up Biden’s dismal debate in three sentences. “This wasn’t a bad night. It was confirmation of the worst fears of some of Biden’s most ardent supporters. Biden deserves a better exit in public life than the one he endured when he shuffled off the stage on Thursday night.” The paper was joined by others, including the New York Times, New Yorker, and Chicago Tribune who also called for Biden to step aside, according to the Post Millennial. The Times editorial prompted Biden’s campaign co-chair Cedric Richmond to fire back, “The last time Joe Biden lost the New York Times editorial board’s endorsement it turned out pretty well for him,” a reference to the president’s winning the Democratic primary in 2020.

Following Thursday’s debate, President Biden departed for Camp David where he met privately with his family over the future of his reelection bid, according to media reports. First Lady Dr. Jill Biden has reportedly shielded her husband from aides and allies who continue to suggest that he step aside for the good of the country, while first son Hunter Biden has insisted his father stay in the race. The Biden campaign reported receiving more than $38 million in donations following the two-hour performance where the president was criticized for delivering meandering answers with a sluggish demeanor and failing to forcefully respond to assertions by Trump that he considered lies.
