CNN’s Van Jones Warns Biden ‘Won’t Be Forgiven’ for Suffering ‘Senior Moment’ during Debate

CNN political commentator Van Jones has warned that Democrat President Joe Biden “won’t be forgiven” if he sufferers one of his infamous gaffes or moments of confusion during the first presidential debate.

The warning from Jones comes as pressure mounts on Biden to perform during his first debate with President Donald Trump since the 2020 election.

Speculation is continuing to grow that Democrats are planning to replace Biden on the party’s presidential ticket if he can’t hold his own against Trump.

Many have suggested that the suspiciously early first debate is planned to give the Democrats time to replace Biden before the Democratic National Convention.

According to Jones, the stakes are simply too high for Biden to get away with “senior moment” on the debate stage.

“[Biden] could have a senior moment,” Jones said Thursday morning on CNN.

“It won’t be forgiven,” he asserted.

Jones, who previously warned that Biden is losing support among young voters, said the worst debate outcome for the president was a major slip-up on stage.

“People have senior moments all the time,” Jones said.

“I say dumb stuff all the time.

“But if [Biden] does something that’s more than usual, that could be very bad for him.”

“Trump has problems tonight as well,” Jones added.

“Trump’s in a box he’s never been in before.

“There’s no audience.

“So that oxygen that he gets from dropping his insults, comic stuff — there’s no one that’s going to be laughing at his jokes.”

“He’s not used to that,” Jones continued.

“Number two: the mic getting cut off is going to mess him up.

“Because he loves to run over people.

“That’s his main thing.

“Won’t be able to do it.

“Number three: he’s got to pretend to be somebody he’s not.

“He’s got to pretend to be presidential.”

“So he’s going to be playing a role he’s not used to, in a format that he’s not used to, with his main weapon, being a bully, being taken away from him,” Jones said.

He said Republicans made a strategic mistake by lowering the debate expectations for Biden.

“I don’t know what they’re doing,” Jones said.

“They literally made it, ‘if Biden can walk out there on his own legs … if he doesn’t walk out there with a walker, then he can be president.'”

However, he said it was unwise to underestimate Trump.

“Donald Trump is a force of nature,” Jones said.

“Anyone that’s been in a room with this guy, he’s a freight train, he’s a grizzly bear.”

“Anybody that can stand up to that guy for an hour and a half — I couldn’t stand the guy for an hour and a half — is fit to be president,” Jones said.

“So if [Biden’s] able to do it, if he’s able to put some lefts and rights together for an hour and a half against this guy, it is going to be requalifying” for the president.
