On February 9, the New York Times‘ Editorial Board published a damning, honest opinion piece, titled: ‘The Challenges of an Aging President.’

The team at the newspaper concluded: ‘This is a dark moment for Mr. Biden’s presidency.

The board wrote: ‘His assurances… didn’t work. He must do better — the stakes in this presidential election are too high for Mr. Biden to hope that he can skate through a campaign with the help of teleprompters and aides and somehow defeat as manifestly unfit an opponent as Donald Trump.’
