After Jill Biden spent Saturday in the Hamptons orchestrating Weekend at Bernie's 3, NBC News reports that the Biden family is expected to discuss 'the future of his re-election campaign' at Camp David on Sunday following a horrendous debate on Thursday which laid bare to the world the fact that Joe Biden is not running the country.

According to the report, while top Democrats jumped to publicly reiterate their support for Biden, "senior congressional Democrats, including Reps. Hakeem Jeffries of New York, Jim Clyburn of South Carolina and Nancy Pelosi of California, have privately expressed concerns about his viability, said two sources apprised of those discussions."

One Democratic House member who's still in the closet over Biden pulling out told NBC (which spoke with over a dozen Democrats) that three colleagues agreed during votes on the House floor Friday.

And so, while the party is still virtue circling the wagons, they clearly want Biden out - and are 'giving him space' to "determine next steps. They believe only the president, in consultation with his family, can decide whether to move forward or to end his campaign early — and that he won’t respond well to being pushed."

So that's on the table.

"The decision-makers are two people — it’s the president and his wife," said one of the sources familiar with the discussions, adding "Anyone who doesn’t understand how deeply personal and familial this decision will be isn’t knowledgeable about the situation."

According to another person 'familiar with his mood,' Biden is "humiliated, devoid of confidence and painfully aware that the physical images of him at the debate — eyes staring into the distance, mouth agape — will live beyond his presidency, along with a performance that at times was meandering, incoherent and difficult to hear."

"It's a mess," the person said.

Yes... And this is what the world just saw from the man with the nuclear codes:

Another source said, Joe will only listen to Jill Biden.

"The only person who has ultimate influence with him is the first lady," they said. "If she decides there should be a change of course, there will be a change of course."

After NBC News printed the above story, a 'source familiar' scrambled to let them know that the Camp David gathering was not a formal family meeting.

"Any discussion about the campaign is expected to be informal or an afterthought," said the source. "No one is sitting down for a formal or determinative discussion."

Damage control intensifies...

Earlier Saturday, the White House told Axios that Biden is basically sundowning all the time, but is 'dependably engaged' between the hours of 10am to 4pm, and that outside of that range, he's 'more likely to have verbal miscues and become fatigued.'
