Washington Post editorial board runs proposed draft of Biden's drop out speech

"What if Biden spoke these words?"

The Washington Post editorial board penned a hypothetical speech for President Joe Biden if he were to announce in an Independence Day address that he was dropping out of the presidential race. The article from the left-leaning outlet comes as Biden has faced increasing pressures from Democrats to drop out of the race for president.

"What if Biden spoke these words?" was released by the outlet on July 3 ahead of the July 4 holiday. The Washington Post’s editorial board wrote that Biden could compare himself to George Washington, with one line from the hypothetical speech reading, "I have decided to withdraw from the campaign for president of the United States."

"This moment echoes one George Washington faced as he approached the end of his second term. Fear of instability and of the unknown, of who would come next, counseled against risking a premature departure. John Adams was pugnacious. Thomas Jefferson was radical. But Washington stood aside, though the Constitution at the time did not require it," the outlet added to the speech for Biden.

The outlet's editorial board added in the speech meant for Biden, "A large part of me still wants to stay in the fight. But, at this moment, the nation needs something I cannot provide: a leader with the energy to run a vigorous campaign and then to work for America, at all hours, for the next four years."

Biden reportedly is not fully alert outside of the hours of 10 am and 4 pm when he is not traveling around the country. During the debate last week, Biden was unable to put full sentences together at times, appeared confused, and his poll numbers have dropped precipitously since the appearance.

The authors at the Washington Post wrote the Biden dropout speech, adding details about how he would hypothetically support the Democratic nominee, blame Trump for J6 and that the 45th president is a "unique danger" to the nation, and would tout accomplishments in office. WaPo's editorial board concluded the hypothetical speech with Biden instructing the American people to "search your soul" on the upcoming election and allowing Trump to go back into office.
