Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez choked on CNN’s “State of the Union” when host Dana Bash asked if she would endorse President Joe Biden for reelection in 2024. Biden is like poison to Democrats now so I can’t blame her but watching the socialist Dem squirm made me laugh.
I think you’ll get a kick out of this too…
“Before we go, I just want to ask about President Biden,” Bash asked the congresswoman in a clip shared on Twitter, “He is saying he’s going to run again in 2024. Will you support him?”
“If the President chooses to run again in 2024,” Ocasio-Cortez responded, before pivoting and saying, “I mean first of all, I’m focused on winning the majority right now and preserving a majority this year in 2022, so we’ll cross that bridge when we get to it. But I think if the President has a vision, then that’s something certainly, we’re all willing to entertain and examine when the time comes.”
“That’s not a yes,” Bash responded.
“Yeah, you know, I think uh, we should endorse when we get to it. I believe that the President has been doing a very good job so far, and should he run again, I think that we’ll take a look at it,” Ocasio-Cortez responded, “but right now we need to focus on winning a majority instead of a presidential election.”
There appears to be growing discomfort with the 79-year-old president across the array of Democratic ranks. His age and poor leadership have all but killed the party ahead of the midterms.
The New York Times reported on Saturday that “dozens of frustrated Democratic officials, members of Congress and voters” were doubtful Biden possessed the ability to turn around the party’s fortunes.
And New York magazine’s Intelligencer explored the issue of Biden’s longevity last month, noting that: “Many of the Democratic Party’s biggest donors – even as they pledge to back Biden’s reelection in earnest – have quietly started to poke around for alternatives in 2024.”
