The New York Times has deliv­ered a bomb­shell ulti­ma­tum to Pres­i­dent Joe Biden, call­ing for him to with­draw from the 2024 pres­i­den­tial race fol­low­ing his wide­ly panned debate per­for­mance against for­mer Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump.

In a scathing edi­to­r­i­al, the Times’ edi­to­r­i­al board observed that Biden appeared to be a “shad­ow” of his for­mer self, stat­ing that the argu­ment for his can­di­da­cy was no longer valid. The paper said it could no longer ignore the pres­i­den­t’s “awful” show­ing on the debate stage, blunt­ly stat­ing: “Mr. Biden can’t con­tin­ue this race.”

Despite prais­ing Biden’s admin­is­tra­tion as “admirable,” the Times acknowl­edged that the pres­i­dent “strug­gled to respond to Mr. Trump’s provo­ca­tions” and “strug­gled to hold Mr. Trump account­able for his lies, his fail­ures and his chill­ing plans.” The edi­to­r­i­al board declared that vot­ers “can­not be expect­ed to ignore what was
plain to see: Mr. Biden is not the man he was four years ago.”

The Times’ strong rebuke marks a sig­nif­i­cant shift for the “news­pa­per of record,” which had pre­vi­ous­ly rel­e­gat­ed its cov­er­age of Biden’s debate per­for­mance to a small para­graph on the front page. This deci­sion sparked crit­i­cism from pun­dits who ques­tioned whether the Times would have been as com­par­a­tive­ly silent had the roles been reversed.

In the after­math of the debate, Trump was quick to pour scorn on Biden’s per­for­mance, mock­ing the pres­i­den­t’s prepa­ra­tion and sug­gest­ing the coun­try can­not sur­vive anoth­er four years of his lead­er­ship. Mean­while, Biden’s allies, includ­ing for­mer Pres­i­dent Barack Oba­ma, rushed to his defense, with Oba­ma writ­ing that “bad debate nights hap­pen” but the elec­tion remains a choice between Biden and Trump.
