After years of feigned outrage every time conservative media mentioned Biden's obvious mental decline, the Democratic party is in complete disarray just four months before the election following last month's disastrous debate against an uncharacteristically quiet Donald Trump.

On one hand, the Bidens now say it will take an 'act of God' (so, the CIA) to remove him from the race.

On the other hand, seven major news organizations have staged a mockingbirdian PR coup against the man for whom they've spent five years running cover.

The list, per Just the News, includes:

Of course, if they really want to twist the knife...

According to Axios, "outside Biden's protective bubble, a fast-growing number of Democrats are praying for —and plotting — a more earthly intervention. They want everyone from the Obamas to congressional leaders to beg Biden to drop out by this Friday."

As Just the News further notes, five Democratic Reps. have publicly called for Biden to step aside.

  • Minnesota Rep. Angie Craig: "This is not a decision I've come to lightly, but there is simply too much at stake to risk a second Donald Trump presidency. That's why I respectfully call on President Biden to step aside as the Democratic nominee for a second term as President and allow for a new generation of leaders to step forward." 
  • Texas Rep. Lloyd Doggett: “I am hopeful that he will make the painful and difficult decision to withdraw. I respectfully call on him to do so.” 
  • Arizona Rep. Raúl Grijalva: “What he needs to do is shoulder the responsibility for keeping that seat — and part of that responsibility is to get out of this race.” Per an aide in the congressman's office who spoke on the condition of anonymity who wasn't authorized to speak publicly. 
  • Massachusetts Rep. Seth Moulton: “President Biden has done enormous service to our country, but now is the time for him to follow in one of our founding father, George Washington's footsteps and step aside to let new leaders rise up and run against Donald Trump.” 
  • Illinois Rep. Mike Quigley: "Mr. President, your legacy is set. We owe you the greatest debt of gratitude. The only thing that you can do now to cement that for all time and prevent utter catastrophe is to step down and let someone else do this." 

"The sh*t is going to hit the fan on Monday, when Congress returns," one House Democrat told Axios. "People are scared about their own races. But they're also worried about the country, and about democracy."

That said, Biden still has strong support from several prominent Democrats, including:

  • Vice President Kamala Harris
  • Gov. Gavin Newsom
  • Gov. Kathy Hochul
  • Gov. Gretchen Whitmer
  • Gov. Tim Walz
  • Gov. Wes Moore
  • Sen. John Fetterman
  • Sen. Chris Coons
  • Former Speaker Nancy Pelosi
  • Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee
  • Rep. Haley Stevens
  • Rep. Jasmine Crockett
  • Rep. John Garamendi
