“The View” co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin has called on President Joe Biden to hold a press conference to address growing concerns about his health. While on vacation from the talk show, Griffin took to X (formerly known as Twitter) to share her thoughts on what Biden should do.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Griffin wrote, “To the ‘buck up and back Biden’ crowd: He owes it to concerned voters to do a press conference. No script, no prompter, & takes questions from the press to assuage fears about his mental acuity. The fact that he hasn’t yet is malpractice.” She criticized the Biden campaign for not allowing the President to hold a spot during the Super Bowl, calling it “malpractice.”

Griffin argued, “The White House needs to get away from this narrative by putting Biden out there. It was malpractice that he wasn’t at the Super Bowl. It was the most-watched event since the moon landing.” Her co-host, Sara Haines, echoed similar sentiments, saying, “It kind of pains me to say this today, but I think President Biden needs to step down and be replaced if we want to defeat Donald Trump in November,” as reported by EW.

Both Biden and former President Donald Trump have faced scrutiny regarding their age and capability to serve as POTUS. The recent presidential debate between the two intensified the critique of Biden’s performance. “Donald Trump was a mess. He lied his way through it, but Joe Biden’s performance was so bad that it eclipsed everything that Donald Trump said. He needs to put [the] country before his own ambition, and he needs to step aside and pass the baton,” Griffin commented post-debate.

As reported by Decider, Reflecting on the debate, Griffin said, “I think within the first 90 seconds it was kind of baked in, and I think a lot of people tuned out some of the later parts of the debate. The distraction was on Joe Biden’s performance, but here’s the thing. Biden has been running on Donald Trump as a threat to democracy, he’s a threat to our values. I agree with him on that. Donald Trump is a threat to American democracy. We need someone who can beat him.”

Griffin further warned, “Trump World is scared when they’re hearing rumblings there could be someone else on the ticket. They know that any other Democrat would wipe the floor with Donald Trump.” She concluded, “Mark my words, if it’s Trump vs. Biden, Trump is gonna win.” Co-host Sunny Hostin admitted, “Most of us are mourning.”

President Biden’s debate performance raised critical concerns as he stuttered, fumbled, and frequently zoned out while deflecting questions from the CNN moderators. This has only fueled the ongoing debate about his fitness for office.
