TMZ: ABC’s Stephanopoulos Doesn’t Think Biden Can Serve 4 More Years

Such is the state of the Regime Media that TMZ, more broadly known for celebrity gossip, is out there filling a void and doing journalism. A hidden cameraman caught ABC Senior Political Correspondent George Stephanopoulos in a candid admission: he doesn’t think President Joe Biden can serve a second full term.

Watch the stunning moment as it unfolds on the streets of New York:

RANDO ON THE STREET: Hey. Hey. Excuse me. How you doin’? 




RANDO: What do you think? Do you think Biden should step down? You’ve talked to him more than anyone else has lately. And yo an he honest…


STEPHANOPOULOS: I don’t think he can serve four more years.


RANDO: You don’t think he can serve four more years? Allright. That’s an answer. 

George’s comment is telling, given he had an exclusive sit-down with the Prez just 4 days ago. George pressed Biden on his mental acuity and his dismal debate performance

Outside the White House bubble, George has spent more one-on-one time with the President than just about anyone.

Telling, indeed, albeit perhaps for different reasons than those arrived at by the good folks at TMZ. That George Stephanopoulos has an opinion on things is not news. He airs them all the time on This Week. …

The newsworthiness of Stephanopoulos’ statement is not the statement itself, but the venue in which he chooses to deliver it. Not during Friday’s funereal post-interview panel or to open This Week, but on the streets of New York. Not to the millions of Americans who choose to rely on him for political coverage, but to some rando on the street with a cellphone in his hand.

And, of course, this begs more questions. Why did Stephanopoulos bite his tongue at this critical juncture? Was he muzzled by ABC News brass or did he self-censor on the air out of deference to a fellow Democrat?

Also, how many more within the Regime Media harbor these same reservations, but hold their tongues out of dutiful partisanship where they would otherwise speak and editorialize freely?

We shall soon find out.

UPDATE: Per Pucks; Dylan Byers, Stephanopoulos issues a statement of sort-of regret, and ABC News distances themselves from the remark. There’s going to be an on-air struggle session, isn’t there?
