The Death of the Teleprompter: The Case for a Mini-primary in the Era of the Democratic Presidential Reionization

The intervening days have not been comforting to the voters who held out hope that the president wouldn’t communicate again.

Donald Trump’s candidacy for a second term poses a grave threat to American democracy. Mr. Biden, instead of campaigning vigorously to disprove doubts and demonstrate that he can beat Mr. Trump, has maintained a scripted and controlled schedule of public appearances. He has largely avoided taking questions from the voters or journalists that reveal his limitations, the kind of interactions that cause him so much trouble on the debate stage. During his interview with George Stephanopoulos of ABC on Friday, he got rid of his teleprompter and appeared as a man in decline.

“Joe Biden is who our country needs, and his presidency has laid a foundation upon which we can continue our pursuit of a more perfect union,” he said in a social media post on Friday. Mr. Clyburn’s endorsement four years ago is often credited with helping Mr. Biden prevail in the South Carolina presidential primary and propelling him to win his first term.

Mr. Clyburn caused some hand-wringing among Democrats last week when he discussed the possibility of a “mini-primary“ to replace Mr. Biden before the Democratic National Convention next month should he withdraw from the race. He quickly moved to say that he did not consider the idea hypothetical.

Comeback Moments: The Rise and Fall of President Biden Among the Blackest Congressional Candidates, and a Voice from the Capitol

As President Biden watches his support among some key Democrats in Congress quietly crumble, one group has emerged as a vocal base of support on Capitol Hill: Black lawmakers, particularly older ones.

Mr. Jeffries said during the MSNBC interview that he had to come back from tragedies and trials throughout his life. The moment that we’re in right now is a comeback moment.

The Biden campaign has taken solace in the backing of Black Democrats, an influential force on Capitol Hill and in the party, at an otherwise grim time. It chose a Black church in Philadelphia as the backdrop on Sunday for Mr. Biden to make his case.

If we stick together, Mr. Biden told the congregation at Mount Airy Church of God in Christ in Philadelphia.

Ms. Waters was also one of the few top Democrats who spoke up for the president during a high-level virtual meeting on Sunday in which several ranking members of key committees privately said he needed to withdraw from the race, according to people who attended and were briefed on the session. Representative David Scott of Georgia is one of the senior members of the Black Caucus and spoke in support of Mr. Biden.

“I don’t care what anybody says — it ain’t going to be no other Democratic candidate,” Representative Maxine Waters of California told audiences at the Essence festival in New Orleans over the weekend. “It’s going to be Biden.”

A former leader of the Black Caucus praised the current Vice President, Joe Biden, for his record as a defender of democracy.

No other House or Senate Democrats joined the push for the president to withdraw as the 2024 presidential nominee, but lawmakers leaving a pair of closed door party meetings on both sides of the Capitol did not emerge on the same page. The private worries that Biden is still on the top of the ticket could doom the Democrats to keep control of the Senate.

Boeing has agreed to plead guilty to a criminal fraud charge stemming from two fatal 737 Max crashes in 2018 and 2019, the Justice Department said in a court filing on Sunday. The plea deal requires Boeing to pay a $243.6 million fine, make up up to $450 million toward safety and compliance programs, and be on community service for three years.

France’s far-right party failed to get a majority after a historic number of voters participated in the country’s snap elections. The country saw a 67% voter turnout.

Beryl made landfall in Texas this morning as a Category 1 Hurricane, the National Hurricane Center said in its 5:00 a.m. ET update. More than 100 counties are under a state disaster declaration, and Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick said yesterday more may be added. More than 2,500 responders have been dispatched across the state.

The Art and Science of Latin America: Portraits of Ubaldo Sanchez at the NPR Latin American Folk Festival and Addressing Donald Trump’s ‘Convention’

The fun of dining out with your friends is over once you pay for your meal. Splitting the bill is a fine art. The editor of New York Magazine says that there should be a sense of equality in the way the check is disbursed when the meal is over. She offered advice on how to keep things fair and square.

The arts and culture from Latin America were on display at the festival. People from the Latin American contingent at the festival share their stories and expertise with excited onlookers like 2-year-old first-time skateboarder Poppy Moore. One of the artists NPR’s team met was Ubaldo Sanchez from Guatemala. His portrait of former President Obama was selected for his White House collection, and he successfully painted a giant kite by the festival’s closing. 📷 See photos from the festival and read about the special connection Sanchez found with NPR’s Marc Silver.

Biden, 81, has been insistent that he would continue his campaign even after he badly faltered in a debate with Trump — a performance that alarmed Democrats worried about his ability to run, win and govern. He has said he had a cold and jet lag, and has been working since to try to demonstrate he is still up to the job.

“Come on, give me a break. Come with me. Don’t forget to watch. Watch,” he said, referencing voter support in recent campaign stops. I’m getting frustrated with the party who know so much more. But if any of these guys don’t think I should run, run against me. Go ahead. Announce for president. Challenge me at the convention.”

He said Democratic voters had made their own decision and that it was not the press, pundits, or big donors who made that decision.

“This was a process open to anyone who wanted run. Three people decided to challenge me. One fared so badly that he left the primaries to run as an independent. He said another attacked him for being too told and was soundly defeated.

While not speaking about the Tuesday caucus, Rep. Deborah Ross referred to Democrats who vote for a candidate with the party label as “I’m from North Carolina.” We’re yellow dog Democrats and we’d vote for a yellow dog over a Republican and we’d certainly vote for a yellow dog over a junkyard dog and that’s who Donald Trump is.”

Rep. Lori Trahan explains why Democrats remain split over Biden’s future in the Democratic Party (a version of the story is coming to an end)

He’s also given two interviews in recent days – a call to MSNBC where he essentially called on detractors who think he shouldn’t run to challenge him at the convention and an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, where he dismissed the possibility that top Congressional leaders would come to him asking him to step aside from the campaign.

Massachusetts Rep. Lori Trahan, who is one of the members elected to lead House Democrats on messaging, released a statement after the meeting saying she shared the concerns about Biden that she’s hearing from voters.

Most members exiting the meeting barely spoke to the flood of reporters waiting outside, with some simply saying it’s good to have a “family conversation” and the discussion is “exactly what we should be doing as a party.”

The dam was not broken when lawmakers returned to Capitol Hill, despite calls from Democrats for Biden to withdraw from the campaign.

Democratic politicians expressed deep concerns about President Biden’s ability to win the election after a poor debate performance against Donald Trump, leading the internal party to head into its second week.

While running for reelection in a state that President Donald Trump won easily, Montana Senator Jon Tester said that he needed to show that he could do the job. He called the closed door discussion Tuesday “constructive.”

The number two Senate Democratic leader, Dick Durbin of Illinois, when asked about Biden remaining on the ticket, said “it still remains to be seen” and said the president is putting together his campaign.

Multiple Senate Democrats say this week is really the unofficial deadline for the party to debate the best path forward, if in fact there is a move to get behind an alternative nominee.

The House Democrats met inside the DNC headquarters for close to two hours on Tuesday. Legislators were not allowed to bring cell phones, and they were not allowed to speak with the media after leaving the meeting. The top leaders left through a back entrance.

Rep. Correa: “There’s a lot of difference in the room that Donald Trump can’t regain the White House”

California Rep. Lou Correa, who backs Biden, said the “vast, vast majority” of those who spoke up during the private session support Biden as the nominee.

He told reporters how surprised he was at how much support Biden had in that room. He admitted that there was some concern but not a lot of people said that he shouldn’t be the guy.

Georgia Rep. Hank Johnson said he doesn’t think there was “disunity in the room,” adding: “There were differences of opinion expressed, but we’re all unified in the fact that we can’t allow Donald Trump to regain the White House.”
