In an “on the record” interview with the New York Times, Democrat Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), who is in a heated primary battle with longtime House colleague Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY), said “off the record” that President Joe Biden is “not running again” in 2024.
Asked if Biden should run again, Maloney replied, “Off the record, he’s not running again.”
Reminded that this was “not off the record, on the record,” Maloney then clarified, “On the record? No, he should not run again.”
This interview was published after Maloney had a mixup during a debate a couple of weeks ago when she was asked about Biden running for reelection, to which she responded, “I don’t believe he’s running for reelection.”
Maloney later walked that back and apologized to Biden by saying on CNN’s New Day, “Mr. President, I apologize. I want you to run. I happen to think you won’t be running, but when you run or if you run, I will be there 100 percent. You have deserved it. You are a great president, and thank you for everything you’ve done.”
Now she’s reversed course again, stating bluntly in the NYT interview that Biden should not run. Sounds like the Democrats can’t get everyone on the same page about the mentally and physically decrepit, epically unpopular Biden.
