"I know I'm not a young man, to state the obvious. I don't walk as easy as I used to, I don't speak as smoothly as I used to, I don't debate as well as I used to. I would not be running again if I didn't believe with all my heart and soul that I could do this job. The stakes are too high,” Joe Biden said day after a debate showdown with Donald Trump.

“You are in stage 4 of dementia and your interns write your tweets,” said an X (formerly Twitter) user. Another said, “If you can't walk talk and debate, then you can't be a president.”

One said, “A few weeks ago you assured an interviewer that you are cognitively fit enough to hold the most demanding job on earth. This tells me that you do not in fact know how to tell the truth.”

“You just admitted that you aren’t the man you used to be…..you just admitted that you are unfit to serve,” said one X user.

But several of the party's most senior figures, including former presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, said they were sticking with Joe Biden.

"Bad debate nights happen. Trust me, I know. But this election is still a choice between someone who has fought for ordinary folks his entire life and somebody who only cares about himself," former Democratic President Barack Obama wrote on X.
