It was a rough day Tuesday for the Biden campaign. 

First, John Stewart ripped into the campaign’s heavy-handed attempts to spin the post-debate coverage: “For a campaign based on honesty and decency, the spin about the debate appears to be blatant bulls**t. And the redemption tour hasn’t gotten that much better,” Stewart said. 

Then, George Stephanopoulos, hot off his recent post-debate interview with Biden, casually told a passerby in Manhattan when asked if Biden should step down, “I don’t think he can serve four more years.” He quickly expressed regret — not for what he said, however, but for having answered the question in the first place, as his employer, ABC News, distanced itself from his comments.  

Despite Biden’s desperate attempts to keep his campaign afloat — going so far as to threaten anyone who tries to torpedo him at the upcoming Democratic convention — the cracks keep getting bigger and bigger. 

The final blow yesterday came from a Democratic senator — the first to speak out — who predicted that not only will Trump win, but he might even help Republicans to take control of Congress. Here’s a bit of what The Hill reported on the story: 

Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.) confirmed on Tuesday that he told his Senate Democratic colleagues that he does not believe President Biden can defeat former President Trump in November and that it could imperil control of Congress.

Bennet, along with Sens. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) and Jon Tester (D-Mont.), told Senate Democrats during their weekly luncheon earlier in the day that they do not think the president can defeat Trump.

The Colorado Democrat revealed in an interview on Tuesday night that he said as much, making him the first sitting Senate Democrat to publicly cast doubt on Biden’s ability to win following his disastrous debate performance almost two weeks ago.

“It’s true that I said that. I did say that behind closed doors,” Bennet told CNN’s Kaitlan Collins. “This race is on a trajectory that is very worrisome if you care about the country of this country.”

“Donald Trump is on track, I think, to win this election, and maybe win it by a landslide and take with it the Senate and the House,” Bennet said. “For me, this isn’t a question about polling. It’s not a question about politics. It’s a moral question about the future of our country and I think it’s critically important for us to come to grips with what we face if together we put this country on the path of electing Donald Trump again.”
