Joe Biden admits he nearly ‘fell asleep on stage’ during disastrous Trump debate as he blames poor performance on travel

JOE Biden has bizarrely admitted he nearly fell asleep during his debate against Donald Trump last week – after the disastrous performance sparked calls for him to step down.

Biden addressed the public’s concerns about his performance against former President Trump on Tuesday, noting that his trips around the world in recent weeks played a huge factor in the debate.

“I wasn’t very smart. I decided to travel around the world a couple of times … shortly before the debate,” he said while talking to donors at a fundraiser in Virginia.

“I didn’t listen to my staff … and then I almost fell asleep on stage.”

Before the debate, the president was at Camp David prepping for the major event.

He was said to have left for Atlanta on June 27, the morning of the debate.

Before he was in Camp David, the president took a trip to Italy for the Group of Seven summit on June 14.

“It’s not an excuse but an explanation,” Biden said Tuesday. 

He apologized but also stressed that it was “critical” for him to win the next election.

The president kept his speech brief, only speaking to donors for about six minutes.

Biden’s debate performance was a shock to the nation as he appeared to struggle to answer questions and spoke in a low and raspy tone on stage.

After the debate aired, many people voiced their concerns for the president.

“I think the panic had set in,” said David Axelrod, a longtime advisor to former President Barack Obama on CNN, immediately after the debate about Biden’s performance.

“And I think you’re going to hear discussions that, I don’t know will lead to anything, but there are going to be discussions about whether he should continue.”

Van Jones, another Democratic strategist, also agreed with Axelrod saying, “He did not do well at all.”

Some Democratic leaders began to call for the president to step down in the race.

However, the White House released a statement, originally blaming the president for having a cold for his disastrous performance.

‘DANGEROUS PRECEDENT’

This is following Biden’s speech to the nation after the Supreme Court ruled on Monday that Trump has absolute immunity from prosecution for official acts.

Biden claimed that the latest move made Trump “a king above the law.”

This year, Trump was indicted on several felonies including conspiracy to defraud the United States and obstruction of official proceedings regarding his attempts to overturn the 2020 election results.

The ruling would extend the delay in the Washington criminal case, making it less likely that Trump will be tried before the presidential election.

Biden claimed that giving the former president certain immunities meant there would be “virtually no limits on what a president can do.”

“This is a fundamentally new principal and a dangerous new precedent,” he added.
