Dem rep urges party to ‘slow down’ the ‘tsunami’ of pressure on Biden to drop out

Rep. John Garamendi, D-Calif., defended President Biden on Saturday after five of his House colleagues called on the president to step aside from the Democratic nomination in 2024. 

Appearing on "Fox News Live," Garamendi urged Democrats to "not get in a panic" over Biden's debate performance and to "slow" the "feeding frenzy" targeting Biden.

"Slow down. Take a deep breath. Let's take a look at what this president has done and also what he has managed to do since that debate," Garamendi said.

The California lawmaker acknowledged that Biden had a "bad debate" but said he was much improved in the interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos. 

"All of his interviews that I've seen over the years are understated. He speaks softly in these interviews. He's not boisterous, he's not outlandish, but he comes forward very clearly. And he was very clear that not only what he has done in the past, but also, he pointed out what his opponent is going to ask him," Garamendi said of Biden.

"He has the capability of campaigning as well as being president simultaneously," he added.
