Biden bronzed for ABC: ‘The Lord Almighty’ isn’t going to ask him to drop out from ‘running the world’

President Joe Biden during the debate on June 27 on CNN, and during the ABC interview on July 5.

In a taped interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos, President Joe Biden said he had just had a bad debate last week against Donald Trump, but said it wasn’t indicative of his abilities and he defended his qualifications to be president.

Biden, who has had cosmetic surgery in the past, is normally pale, but was suddenly bronzed and freshly botoxed for ABC, as he attempts to tamp down the growing concern about his mental capabilities.

Either he was extremely tired and ragged during the debate or there’s been a lot of cosmetic work done on him over the past week. A third possibility is that ABC used a flattering lens filter to make him look more vibrant.

“It was a bad episode. No indication of any serious condition. I was exhausted. I didn’t listen to my instincts in terms of preparing and — and a bad night,” Biden said.

“I don’t think anybody’s more qualified to be president or win this race than me,” Biden said. “Who’s going to be able to hold NATO together like me? Who’s going to be able to be in a position where I’m able to keep the Pacific basin in a position where we’re at least check being in China now? Who’s going to – who’s going to do that? Who has that reach?”

On Friday, he was pressed several times by Stephanopoulos, but again reiterated that he will not drop out of the race, even while pressure from his own loyalists has increased. He refused to agree to take a cognitive test, saying that every day is a cognitive test for him.

“Look. I have a cognitive test every single day. Every day I have that test. Everything I do. You know, not only am I campaigning, but I’m running the world,” he said.

When asked if he had watched the video of himself at the debate, he said wasn’t sure. He did not “think” he had watched it.

During the ABC interview, he said only God could convince him to drop out, but that God is not going to do that.

“Well, Yeah, I’m sure. Look. I mean, if the Lord Almighty came down and said, ‘Joe, get outta the race,’ I’d get outta the race. The Lord Almighty’s not comin’ down. I mean, these hypotheticals, George, if, I mean, it’s all…”

Stephanopoulos pushed back: “I agree that the Lord Almighty’s not gonna come down, but if– if– if you are told reliably from your allies, from your friends and supporters in the Democratic Party in the House and the Senate that they’re concerned you’re gonna lose the House and the Senate if you stay in, what will you do?”

Biden responded: “I’m not gonna answer that question. It’s not gonna happen.”

During the 22-minute interview, he called Donald Trump a pathological liar twice and a congenital liar once, and said Trump distracted him, which accounts for some of the trouble he was having at the debate.

“The fact of the matter is, what I looked at is that he also lied 28 times. I couldn’t — I mean, the way the debate ran, not — my fault, no one else’s fault, no one else’s fault.”

“Well, it came to me I was havin’ a bad night when I realized that even when I was answering a question, even though they turned his mic off, he was still shouting. And I — I let it distract me. I — I’m not blaming it on that, but I realized that I just wasn’t in control.”

Biden said his poor debate was due to having a “bad cold” and that his doctors did a Covid test to make sure he didn’t have the virus, but it came back negative.

When asked about the polling that shows he is behind in the race, Biden refused to agree: “I don’t buy that,” he said and then called the race a “toss up.”

Biden also stated falsely that he draws huge crowds: “You saw it today. How many– how many people draw crowds like I did today? Find me more enthusiastic than today? Huh?”

Stephanopoulos argued: “I mean, have … I don’t think you wanna play the crowd game. Donald Trump can draw big crowds. There’s no question about that.”

Biden’s response was: “He can draw a big crowd, but what does he say? Who — who does he have? I’m the guy supposedly in trouble. We raised $38 million within four days after this. Over — we have over a million individual contributors, individual contributors. That — that’s less than 200 bucks. We have — I mean, I’m not seen what you’re — you’re proposing.”

Stephanopoulos asked him how he would feel if Trump is elected.

“I’ll feel as long as I gave it my all and I did the goodest job as I know I can do, that’s what this is about,” Biden said. The tape shows that is what he actually said.

ABC later altered the transcript to read “good as job” rather than “goodest job.” That section of the interview is in the clip below:

    • INDEED(!) … The President ‘is’ a narcissistic psychopath addicted to the power and prestige. He represents 50-years of incompetence and unchecked corruption. The entire Biden Crime Family is desperately pushing him to stand firm and continue his campaign. As I see it, the only way he steps down is … a) dies and/or b) he swings a deal that ensures immunity (past, present, and future) as well as a big pay-off.

      It would be wise for the public to start reviewing the potential replacement candidates and their true character (lack thereof), their alliances – associations, and their failed positions // initiatives // accomplishments.

        • ….and Greg? So what??
          Questionable as to the truthfulness, what is your point? (not that you really have one). I am pretty sure the Kaiser needed every able-bodied person and conscription was in effect. As for the Weimar Republic, the winners of WWI denied Germany to keep a standing military of any significance.
          It should be pointed out that the vast majority of our politicians today HAVE NEVER SERVED in the military.

          • It’s true alright. They kicked grandpa out, he came here and made some money and tried to get back in but they wouldn’t let him. Just pointing out that the Trumps have a history of no honor.

            • And… once again, Greg posts a comment that provides ZERO value other than confirming he hates Trump.
              We all know, Greg. You do not have to remind us every day, sometimes multiple times a day.

      • Review of Kamala Harris:
        Largest kneepads ever worn by a woman of color who worked her way into politics by servicing Willie Brown for a decade and a half, then moving on to other “positions” at the behest of powerful men in her orbit.
        Democrats should be so proud to have her on their radar as a replacement president. A strong woman, no doubt.
        .
        One could feel sorry for her ignorant, White, Jewish husband, who would inherit the dubious role of First Gentleman, assuming the incoming president was a Gentlewoman.
        Democrats are stuck in a real predicament now. And they know it!

    • First of all, the US president does not “run the world.” Secondly, Job Biden is obviously a figure-head being controlled by handlers and behind-the-scenes power players. Therefore, he is not actually running this nation.

    • The Orange Man was sent by Him, so he’s good to go. Biden, who may go to church nearly every Sunday (but obviously doesn’t mean it), was not, so we’ll hold him to a different standard than Orange Man.

    • The Orange Man was sent by Him, so he’s good to go. Biden, who may go to church nearly every Sunday (but obviously doesn’t mean it), was not, so we’ll hold him to a different standard than Orange Man.

      Let’s call for Biden to drop out of the race, but not call for Orange Man to fall out for the exact same behavior – or far, far worse. It isn’t as if Trump doesn’t babble incoherently at his speeches on a regular basis, or during the debate.

      • I wonder if the old fossil ever counts his own lies? I don’t think I’ve ever heard him speak without lying. Bill, to compare Trump’s mental acuity with Biden is just ridiculous. Trump runs rings around Biden as was clearly demonstrated during the debate.

      • “……..we’ll hold him to a different standard than Orange Man………”
        And well you should. While both orange, those fruitcakes as different as an apricot and a papaya. Biden needs to be considered as a dementia patient, and Trump needs to be considered as a magnate. Considering the fact that those will likely be our choices to vote for, anybody who votes for the dementia patient deserves the outcome they’ll get.

  1. Joe:
    The Lord Almighty has already come down, and has commanded all men (women included) to repent and turn from their wicked ways. Furthermore, the Lord Almighty has said, what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his own soul. The Lord Almighty has said to one ruler (and not to only one), I have numbered the days of your reign and brought it to an end.

    Moses has said, the days of our years are threescore and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labor and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away. – Psalm 90:10

    Joe, your choices are early retirement, the 25th Amendment, or defeat in November. Hear the word of the Lord Almighty.

  2. Biden, please stop using God in your sentences. He is a blasphemous FOOL to think he even has a snowballs chance in HELL to win anything now.
    If he does? Pretty sure a civil war will ensue. The people are sick of hearing his bs and lies!

    • Trump, please stop using God in your sentences. He’s a blasphemous FOOL to think he even has a snowballs chance in HELL to win anything now. Pretty sure a civil war will ensue. The people are sick of hearing his bs and lies!

      I mean, if you’re going to call people on blasphemy against God, then you really ought to start with Trump, about the most un-Godly man in the world. Oh, but Trump is the Chosen One, that’s right…we just gotta ignore his proclivities because God works in mysterious ways…

      • Civil war will ensue?
        Gee… I wonder. What will cause this civil war?
        Open borders? Food insecurity? Rampant corruption in the Department of Justice? An administration imprisoning their opponents?
        How about voter fraud?
        Or a divisive chief executive? (After all, anyone who wants to make America great again is a threat to democracy, right?)
        .
        Please. The only reason civil war will ensue is because the children on the left side of the political aisle refuse to grow up. Every time the leftists get handed any kind of a setback, it demands the rules of the game get changed. Supreme Court overturns Roe, and suddenly it is illegitimate. The electoral college needs to be abolished because… Oh.. they want NYC and LA to select the President, not the individual States. Oh, the First Amendment hampers the government, so it is bad.
        .
        If the leftists want civil war, they will get it.

      • “……..Pretty sure a civil war will ensue………”
        So? Please refer to Jefferson’s 1787 letter to William Stephens Smith. This has been a long time coming, and a vote for the Dementia Man is not going to stop it.

  3. Good catch, Suzanne. The major networks will go to their graves to protect Biden and all other America-hating Democrats. Being “bronzed” carries a two-pronged metaphor. It could mean they have touched him up cosmetically to add a little life to his complexion, or, it could mean they have created his statue so he can be glorified now, and get out of the way for a different America-hating Democrat
    .
    Trump, on the other hand, has been vilified as “Orange man,” because he gets out on the golf course and breaths fresh air in the sun.
    .
    Bottom line: Trump healthy, strapping and energetic. Biden feeble, mincy, decrepit, demented, fragile, on life-support and unhealthy.

    • Just remember Chrissy, “we all got it coming kid.” We are all heading where Biden is eventually.
      What truly makes him objectionable is his big-government totalitarian ideology. He has spent his entire life promoting a failed socialist/communist agenda. In earlier years, he was more effective at it than in his current state. After all, at this time he is nothing other than a figurehead being used by manipulative handlers and power-mongers.

      • Uhhh, Wayne……..Biden ran for President in 1988, but had to drop out when it was revealed he was a serial plagurist. Joe Biden has always been a big, phoney, lying POS.

      • A brief review of recorded history will show the entire leadership of the Confederate States of America were Democrats opposed to the new Republican party over the issue of emancipation of slaves. Later, the Democrats contrived various deceptions to turn the tables. For example, they quite successfully re-enslaved a significant portion of Black Americans by making them dependent upon government hand-outs. Not to mention, they tried to reverse the consequences of the Civil War by assassinating Lincoln and those in his inner circle (Seward was a target). There is no limit to the deception and tyranny of Democrats. To be sure, I’m not contending Republicans are perfect by any stretch but they do pale in comparison regarding the evil of Democrats.

  4. New poll out at Bloomberg. Biden leads in Wisconsin and Michigan. Best Biden has done this year in that polling. Trumps involvement with Project 2025 is dragging him down.

  5. George Stephanopoulos is a Clintonian. His first and foremost allegiance is to HRC and Bill. If Trump being on CNN was “in enemy territory” then Biden being with George was far more risky. George’s next highest allegiance is to the Democrat Party, so I wonder who was in communication with him. The Party elite select the candidates just like in any communist country. Joe has publicly gone from caretaker to caretaken too quickly. The recalibration will be epic. Check out the late Beau Biden’s PSA on elder abuse when Delaware Attorney General.

  6. “Goodest job?”
    That’s what he tells the union bosses after a campaign speech that forced 100 union workers to attend. No wonder WI, MI and PA are now swinging for Trump. The goodest president ever (Biden), looks dumber than the union bosses who helped him cheat his way into the White House in 2020.

  7. My take, after watching the entire interview: This is a good as it gets for the current Joseph Robinette. As noted, he was probably dressed and made up as much as possible and I expect “Doctor Feelgood” tried to find the right chemical combo. There will be many times from here on when he doesn’t look, sound or act as good.

    There is some component present and at work that we have not been made aware of – something ugly in the Demo party or in Joseph’s life. He will stay in as long as possible to avoid this component coming out. This is really sad for everyone.

  8. What are the 28 lies Biden is claiming were made by Trump? I would like to see a specific list. There is a list of all the lies spewed during debate by Biden, the one that jumped out most glaringly to me was his claim that no troops have lost their lives under his watch…….wrong. Afghanistan? Albeit what exactly is ‘his watch’ as, sadly, much of the time I don’t think he is watching anything. Narcissistic, sociopathic, professional gaslighter.

    • I am pretty sure that at least half of the “lies” he claimed Trump said where citing a stat incorrectly (saying unemployment was at X% when it was really Y%) or saying that no one has seen anything like it (a phrase Trump uses way too often) when in fact, someone somewhere has seen something like it.
      .
      I remember during the Trump administration the Washington comPost kept a running tally of Trump’s “lies.” If you actually dug into them, they were bragging, exaggerations, and incorrect stats. And, yes, there were a few lies tossed in there as well.

    • 1. “We had the greatest economy in the history of our country. We have never done so well, and everybody was amazed by it.”

      2. “The only jobs he created are for illegal immigrants and bounce-back jobs, they’re bounced back from the COVID.”

      3. “[10% universal tariff proposal is] not going to drive [prices] higher.”

      4. “[Tariff proposal is] just going to just force [other countries] to pay us a lot of money.”5. “I gave you the largest tax cut in history.”
      5. “I gave you the largest tax cut in history.”
      6. “I was getting out of Afghanistan, but we’re getting out with dignity, with strength, with power.”

      7. “The tax cuts spurred the greatest economy that we’ve ever seen.”

      8. “Now, when we cut the taxes…we took in more revenue with much less tax.”

      9. “We had largely fixed [COVID].”

      10. “Throughout the entire world, we’re no longer respected as a country. They don’t respect our leadership. They don’t respect the United States anymore. We’re like a third world nation.”11. “He allowed millions of people to come in here from prisons, jails, and mental institutions to come into our country and destroy our country.”

      12. “He’s destroying Medicare because all of these people are coming in.”

      13. “The Supreme Court just approved the abortion pill.”

      14. “Every legal scholar throughout the world, the most respected, wanted [abortion] brought back to the states.”

      15. “They’re radical because they will take the life of a child in the eighth month, the ninth month, and even after birth. After birth, if you look at the former governor of Virginia, he was willing to do this. He said, we’ll put the baby aside, I will determine what we do with the baby, meaning will kill the baby.”

      16. “Under Roe v. Wade, you have late term abortion. You can do whatever you want depending on the state. You can do whatever you want.”

      17. “He decided to open up our border, open up our country to people that are from prisons, people that are from mental institutions, insane asylum, terrorists.”

      18. “He didn’t need legislation because I didn’t have legislation. I said close the border.”

      19. “[Migrants are] living in luxury hotels in New York City and other places.”

      20. “He doesn’t care about our veterans. He doesn’t care. He doesn’t like the military at all, and he doesn’t care about our veterans.”

      21. “I had the highest approval rating for veterans taking care of the VA. He has the worst. He’s gotten rid of all the things that I approved.”

      22. “First of all, that was a made-up quote, ‘suckers and losers.’ They made it up.”

      23. “Our veterans and our soldiers can’t stand this guy. They can’t stand him. They think he’s the worst Commander in Chief, if that’s what you call him, that we’ve ever had.”

      24. “He did nothing to stop [Russia’s invasion of Ukraine]. In fact, I think he encouraged Russia from going in.”

      25. “Iran was broke with me. I wouldn’t let anybody do business with them. They ran out of money. They were broke.”

      26. “You had no terror at all during my administration.”

      27. “Nancy Pelosi, if you just watched the news from two days ago, on tape to her daughter, who’s a documentary filmmaker they say, but she’s saying, ‘Oh, no, it’s my responsibility. I was responsible for this’ because I offered them 10,000 soldiers or National Guard. And she turned them down.”

      28. “The unselect committee, which is basically two horrible Republicans that are all gone now, out of office, and Democrats, all Democrats, they destroyed and deleted all the information they found because they found out we were right. We were right. And they deleted and destroyed all of the information.”

      • Not going to waste time going through those “lies” one by one, but seriously… how many are exaggerations? How many are trash talking your opponent? How many are using a stat that makes you look good, while ignoring others?
        .
        If all of those are lies, outright lies that disqualify the candidate from holding office, every politician that has ever run a campaign is disqualified.

  9. This is truly sad to watch. As we pass the 4th of July to celebrate the Constitutional Republic given to us by our Founding Fathers, we instead find our country in the worst state of chaos and danger that we have faced.

    I could sit here and try to blame it on the Democrats, but sadly there are far to many RINO’s like Murkowski in the Republican party that are equally as corrupt that there is enough blame to go around on all sides. It’s not just the D.C. swamp, it slithers all the way down to many of our local corrupt politicians across the country as well.

    Unless We the People stand up and push back, on the corrupt power hungry people in these positions of power we will find ourselves in free fall of becoming the communist controlled nation that these power hungry monsters want.

  10. Biden is toast. He will be replaced by the DNC convention, or at the convention. Even Stephanopoulos pressed him on a cognitive test, 4 times. The New Yorker has come out with a really damning story. The New York Times continues to press for Biden to be replaced. The discussion is not about if, it is about who. The mega-donors have already spoken. It is over.

  11. Is that even the same actor? Cannot see under his chin very well, but I am not seeing saggy skin under his chin.
