CNN Turns On Biden After Debate: ‘Terrible, Low Energy’
Post-debate coverage shred former Vice President
Left-leaning news outlet CNN shredded presidential candidate Joe Biden's performance during the last showdown between Democrats before the 2020 Iowa caucuses.
The former Vice President went up against six of his fellow 2020 Democrats during Tuesday's CNN/Des Moines Register debate but was called out for his dull performance.
Biden’s energy levels were highlighted by commentator and former Obama advisor, David Axelrod, saying, “his closing was very strong, but you wonder where that energy is throughout the debate. There were times when he seemed, very much, low energy.”
CNN reporter Nia-Malika agreed with Axelrod:
"I thought Biden had a terrible debate."
"This is the moment where he has come into this debate saying that he is the one who can take on Donald Trump, that he is steady and strong.
"He seemed none of those things in that debate, certainly the whole way through," Malika stated.
“His closing statement was good, but many people who were watching this debate may not have watched it all the way through to see his strongest moments.”
Biden has struggled to connect with voters in Iowa, and as a result, slipped to fourth place in a poll last week as socialist Bernie Sanders took the lead.

Last week, Biden basted Trump while urging him to take advice from his national security advisers when responding to escalating tensions with Iran.
The presidential hopeful earlier called Trump "dangerously incompetent" while claiming he is on the brink of taking the U.S. into another war in the Middle East.
After Iran launched several missile strikes against military bases used by US troops in Iraq, with the Iranian regime threatening to strike Israel, and even Dubai, Biden said:
“I just pray to God as [Trump] goes through what’s happening, as we speak, that he’s listening to his military commanders for the first time because so far that has not been the case."
