“That's not the real problem. The real problem is a Supreme Court that's been bought off by campers and fishing licenses,” Carville told Tapper. “We're in a country where 72 percent of the population wants something different. If Democrats can't produce something different that 72 percent of the population wants, then what's our point in being here? What are we here for? I mean, the country is crying out for change, so what are we going to give them? The same thing? That just doesn't make sense, Jake. Let's give the people what they want, the voice of the people. The people want something different. Let's give it to them.”

“If Democrats are going to stick to the status quo, and stick to things that three-quarters of the American people don't want, then we have to say, 'Why do we exist? What are we here for?'” Carville continued. “In my view, we're here to make change on civil rights. We're here to make change on Medicare, we're here to get great things done. We're here to do family leave, medical leave, expanded Medicare, all the great things that my party that I love. But if we can't get what the American people want, then it forces us to question why we're here. I really do.”

Biden's age and mental health were issues that had dogged the presidential campaign even before Thursday night's debate. Biden has repeatedly said he has spoken with people who have passed away. For example, on February 8, he claimed to have spoken with former German Chancellor Helmut Kohl about the January 6, 2021, riots at the U.S. Capitol, but Kohl died in 2017, and three days earlier, he claimed to have spoken with former French President François Mitterrand, who died in 1996.

Carville said Biden's family's judgment is “clouded by love.”

“People say, 'James, my family loves me. You and all those people like you are just looking for the next catch, the next scar on your bed…' Maybe we do, and they may love you, but their judgment is clouded by love,” Carville said. “I really like President Biden, but this country needs something new.”
