Joe Biden is having a fairly rough go of it in 2020, and things are certainly not getting any easier as we approach the 6-month countdown to election day.
The former Vice President is routinely being accused of attempting to hide his possibly senility, and his frequent temper tantrums on the campaign trail have a great many questioning his overall temperament.
Furthermore, it seems rather apparent that the only way Joe Biden can beat Donald Trump come November would be if Michelle Obama hopped on his ticket – something that the former First Lady has repeatedly refused to consider.
Now, with a credible claim of sexual assault now looming over this already-troubled campaign, some heavy Democratic hitters are calling for Biden to simply step aside.
Peter Dauo, a political activist and one-time fierce Hillary Clinton backer, took to Twitter Saturday to urge former Vice President Joe Biden to end his presidential bid over new developments in the sexual assault allegation against him.
Dauo, who worked for Clinton during her first presidential bid and was a prominent defender of her in the 2016 cycle, took to Twitter Saturday morning to say “Biden should withdraw.”
In a “difficult” Twitter thread, Daou said the new information emerging in support of Tara Reade’s sexual assault allegations against Biden prompted his stance.
“Credible rape accusations are disqualifying or we have NO moral standards,” Daou wrote.
Dauo had recently realigned himself with the Bernie Sanders campaign, which could reveal this fairly bold demand as a part of a larger, more widespread effort to change the face of the 2020 election.
