German Press Reactions to the Debates

 

Let’s start with the ever-popular Bild Zeitung:

“Good night, Joe!”— devastating assessment from the U.S. Media.

Fight for the Old Man’s House (pun in German using “Greis”, “old man”,  which rhymes with Weiß, i.e. “Weißes Haus”). Stumbling appearance by Biden, Democrats in Panic.

The Die Welt: U.S. commentators shocked by Biden’s performance —”It was a disastrous performance.”  And “Biden’s repeated freezes cause panic among Democrats.”

And from Die Frankfurter Rundschau: “Aggressive panic among Democrats.”

And, mirabile dictu,  I did find a few minutes to look at Der Spiegel:

“Biden should do the world a favor and step down.”

“The President crashes.”

“Is incumbent Joe Biden the right candidate for the Democrats?”

Keep in mind that Der Spiegel is super-left and its coverage of Bush and Trump in office was appallingly biased against them, their coverage of Obama and Biden fawning, dishonest, sickeningly biased in their favor.

From Der Stern:

“Democrats paralyzed by shock. Will Biden remain their candidate?”

“Thanks for everything, Joe, but please quit!”

“International press rips Biden to shreds after TV duel with Trump.”

    Well.

    I reckon the left really does want him gone. Maybe more zeitgeist than planning. Maybe a lot of both.

    I don’t know if he still has free will.

    I don’t know how far they’ll go to stop him if he does.

    A little popcorn might be in order.

    Drei alt bitte. Me and two friends were walking around Düsseldorf and this is the only phrase I remember.

    Biden was only taking bribes for twenty years back then.

    I can’t figure out what they expected. For whom was this a surprise?

    I thought you meant he only took $20 bribes back then. He’s come up in that world by now. But I did figure it out.

    They might have expected and/or planned for him to fail so they can get rid of him. Bongino been sayin’ it. I can’t find myself having a solid opinion.

    This is so embarrassing to us. We have no leader right now. I think CNN and the left threw him under the bus. They want him replaced. But with who? Commie La Harris? Gavin Nuke’em?

    Memorize these:

    Drei Bier bitte.
    Wo ist die Toilette?
    Ich muss sofort mit dem amerikanischen Konsulat sprechen.

    Did I say it right? Three beers please. Beer there is fantastic. Everyone drinks from the same mini keg with many mini glasses. Very many. Tic on your coaster to keep track. When the tic’s make a full circle it’s time to leave. The Altstat was a tourist trap but the rest of the city was fun. We had a trade show there every other year.

    “Drei alt bitte” is “three old please.” Three of the same? Mebbe.

    From what I remember only in Dusseldorf they said alt for bier. I looked it up and also seen ‘three old please’. I was just a parrot. I said the phrase and someone brought beer so….

    Only if people think the candidate actually determines the agenda, which hasn’t been true for the Dims especially in a long time.

    Der Spiegel is far left, but more often than you’d think, they have a knee-jerk reaction that hits center-right. Sort of before an official line is determined, they react and it comes out sensible.

    He is a threat to world security and should retire from public life immediately. Let the world start picking up the pieces and move on.

    Who they know polls even worse, with good reason. No, they will choose the route of replacing him at the convention.
