Panic Mode: Philadelphia Inquirer calls on Donald Trump to drop out

By Hanna Panreck

The Philadelphia Inquirer editorial board called on former President Trump to bow out of the race following his debate with President Biden, citing a “bombastic litany of lies.”

“The debate about the debate is misplaced. The only person who should withdraw from the race is Trump,” the editorial board wrote on Saturday.

Biden’s debate performance sparked panic from members of the media, in addition to some members of the Democratic Party, as several media outlets have suggested he withdraw from the race. The Inquirer acknowledged that Biden’s showing at the debate was a “disaster,” but argued Trump was the one who should step down.

“The debate served as a reminder of what another four years of Trump would look like. More lies, grievance, narcissism, and hate. Supporters say they like Trump because he says whatever he thinks. But he mainly spews raw sewage,” the Inquirer wrote.

The editorial board argued Trump didn’t deserve a spot on the debate stage and said, “why even give him a platform?”

“Yes, Biden had a horrible night. He’s 81 and not as sharp as he used to be. But Biden on his worst day remains lightyears better than Trump on his best,” they continued.

They argued Biden surrounded himself with experienced aides that value public service and argued the president “believes in the best of America.”

“The Democrat machine is in full freak-out mode because President Trump delivered the greatest debate performance in history while Joe Biden completely embarrassed himself in from of the country and the rest of the world,” Trump campaign spokesman Steven Cheung told Fox News Digital in a statement.

  1. Ah the good ole Inky: the pathetic, wanna-be New York Times. Back in the day when I used to vote, I’d print off a list of the inquirer’s endorsements and vote against every single one of their choices.

  2. I’m getting the feeling that they are going to run Jill Biden for President in exchange for Joe stepping down.

    1. The democrats could run satan himself against Trump, or any republican for that matter, and the nation’s dinosaur newspapers’ editorial boards would wet themselves with excitement endorsing the prince of darkness.

  3. Mental & spiritual illness.

    I pray for some of these people – but I don’t see how their cure comes about – except, it’s fine that I don’t see how – because it’s not up to me.
