After a disappointing debate performance, President Joe Biden is facing a backlash from some influential members of his party, including a notable Disney heiress, who are considering withholding their financial support unless he decides to withdraw from the presidential race. Abigail Disney, the granddaughter of Roy O. Disney, co-founder of The Walt Disney Company, has publicly stated her intention to stop her financial contributions to the Democratic Party, a party she has long supported if Biden continues his candidacy. Despite these pressures, President Biden has stated his determination to stay in the race.

“I intend to stop any contributions to the party unless and until they replace Biden at the top of the ticket. This is realism, not disrespect. Biden is a good man and has served his country admirably, but the stakes are far too high,” Abigail Disney said to CNBC on Thursday. “If Biden does not step down the Democrats will lose. Of that I am absolutely certain. The consequences for the loss will be genuinely dire.”

Former Fox News host Megyn Kelly believes that the Democratic Party elites are panicking due to President Joe Biden’s cognitive decline. She thinks that following his poor debate performance, the party leaders are considering replacing him with a younger candidate.

“We are officially halfway through 2024…and the big question is whether President Joe Biden be the Democratic nominee by the end of this week? We know the media revolt against him is well underway. Paper after paper is suddenly reporting on the story that has been obvious to just about everyone with eyes and ears for months, and let’s be honest, years now. Joe Biden is struggling and his age has caught up with him. It’s not a pleasant story to report on. No one’s enjoying watching this. But we’ve been forced to by Jill Biden and the cabal around him and by the candidate himself,” she said on her Sirius XM podcast.

“We on this show reported on Joe Biden’s obviously faltering mental cognition more than two years ago, it was episode 339. We talked about it on the show before we did it saying, look, it feels kind of mean, it feels a little rude, but it’s a story, and not a lot of people were doing it back then. But that was at a time when the Democrats could still have realistically held a competitive primary… Many in the larger media and members of the president’s staff and family have been lying to you for a very long time…However now, in the wake of Biden’s disastrous debate performance, the media elite have woken up… and they are in full-on panic mode as they attempt to push out this president,” Kelly continued, as she read part of the piece from The New York Times editorial board calling for the president to step aside.

“Both The Washington Post and The Wall Street Journal editorial boards did not go that far, but said bowing out should be seriously considered by the president… Maureen Dowd and Tom Friedman at the New York Times…have called for Biden to step aside… Their colleague Ezra Klein who has been calling for an open convention since February took a victory lap… Mr. Biden’s favorite TV show host Joe Scarborough said ‘It was time for the president to consider leaving this race to help his party defeat Donald Trump,’” Kelly went on.

“And this didn’t come from just America… Britain’s largest current affairs magazine, ‘The Economist’ called on President Biden to step aside,” she said. “It’s not just the media…Democrat donors are unhappy too…and a call between the Biden campaign and a large group of them is scheduled for this evening.”
