Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Mediaite.com: “Joe Biden Goes There at CNN Town Hall, Says Trump 'Should Step Down'”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Former Vice President Joe Biden slammed President Donald Trump for not being “honest” with the American people about the coronavirus pandemic, and said “This president should step down.”

At Thursday night’s drive-up CNN town hall event, an attendee named William “Trip” O’Malley told Biden “Mr. Vice President, the messaging on the coronavirus from the White House has been all over the place since February. It’s been extremely inconsistent. It’s caused so many people in this country to ignore the virus, and not take the necessary precautions.”

“How will you get the proper messaging out to all Americans to keep them informed as to how to properly protect themselves and others from this pandemic?” he asked.

Biden delivered a lengthy response in which he lambasted Trump over his response, and over the revelations that Trump knew how dangerous the virus was but lied about it publicly. He wound up his answer with an apparent ad-lib in which he suggested Trump “step down”:

What presidents say matter. People listen. I will make it clear what is needed to be done. I cannot mandate people wearing masks, but we’ve just been told, if — we should expect another 215,000 dead by January. But if we wore a mask, we’d save 100,000 of those lives, doing nothing but that.
