JUST IN: Stephanopoulos Makes Startling Admission About Biden’s Health In Leaked Video


Less than one week after sitting for an exclusive, hard-hitting interview with President Joe Biden, ABC News’s George Stephanopoulos offered an unfiltered opinion about the president’s health after being cornered on the street by an individual who tipped off TMZ.

The anchor appeared to be on a stroll down a New York sidewalk, headphones on, fiddling with his phone when a cameraman approached him and asked for his thoughts about whether Biden should step down. On Friday Stephanopoulos scored an exclusive interview with the 81-year-old president where he challenged Biden to sit for an independent, third-party cognitive fitness test. Biden declined to do so.

The refusal must have been a warning sign for Stephanopoulos, who told the TMZ flak that America will be in deep trouble if President Biden is reelected. “I don’t think he can serve four more years,” he said off-camera before quickly walking away.


In a statement, the former Clinton strategist sounded a remorseful tone for offering his unfiltered opinion on the embattled president. “Earlier today, I responded to a question from a passerby. I shouldn’t have,” Stephanopoulos said in a statement to TMZ. An ABC spokesperson added, “George expressed his own point of view and not the position of ABC News.”

Friday’s interview did little to quell the unrest in Democratic circles about whether President Biden remains the best candidate positioned to beat former President Donald Trump. A rash of polling since his debate has shown the Democratic incumbent losing ground in key swing states where he is often trailing outside the margin of error. On Tuesday AARP released a devastating poll showing Biden 9 points behind Trump in Wisconsin, a battleground state he won by less than 1% in 2020 and which Trump carried in 2016.

Still, Biden’s firewall has held as leading Democratic figures on Tuesday declined to join a push to force President Biden into stepping aside. House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) held a private meeting where ranking members vented their frustrations, but later in the day, he joined former Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), “Squad” member Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), and other notable Democrats in declaring that President Biden will remain the party’s nominee.

During the interview, Stephanopoulos asked the president, “Are you sure you’re being honest with yourself when you say you have the mental and physical capacity to serve another four years?” Biden asserted that he did, doubling down on Monday in a two-page public letter where he refused to step aside. He followed that up with an impromptu appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” where he sounded audibly agitated at the hosts and dared members of his own party to challenge him at the Democratic National Convention next month.

“The bottom line here is that we’re not going anywhere — I am not going anywhere,” he continued. “I had a bad night. But the fact of the matter is — if there was something that was wrong that night, it’s not like it’s one night and it goes away. That’s why I’ve been out, I’ve been testing myself.”

“Run against me. Announce for president. Challenge me at the convention,” Biden added.
