Presidential Debate

Biden Claims Trump’s ‘Shouting’ Distracted Him During Debate Despite No Evidence



President Joe Biden recently attributed his performance issues during the first presidential debate to Donald Trump’s “shouting,” despite a lack of evidence supporting this claim. During an interview with ABC News host George Stephanopoulos, which aired on Friday evening, Biden reflected on when he realized his debate performance was not up to par.

“Well, it came to me. I was having a bad night when I realized that even when I was answering the question, even though they turned his mic off, he was still shouting,” Biden told Stephanopoulos, as reported by Fox News. “And I let it distract me,” he continued. “But I’m not blaming it on that, but I realized that I just wasn’t in control.”

Although Trump was seen and heard speaking when his microphone was off during the debate, there is no evidence suggesting he was shouting at Biden. The debate, which took place last week, led to several Democratic leaders urging Biden to suspend his campaign due to his perceived poor performance.

However, the White House has insisted that Biden remains in the race. In addition to discussing the alleged distraction caused by Trump, Stephanopoulos asked Biden about his raspy voice and moments of losing his train of thought during the televised event.

Biden’s reflections and justifications come amid heightened scrutiny and concern from his party, with the debate performance being a focal point of criticism and analysis. Despite the controversy and calls for him to reconsider his campaign, Biden and his team remain committed to moving forward.
