Biden Dares Dem Party Elites: “Run Against Me”

In a defiant interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” President Joe Biden dismissed calls from Democratic elites urging him to drop out of the 2024 presidential race, inviting them to challenge him at the Democratic National Convention instead.

“I was one of the few people out there publicly saying before the 2022 election there will be no red wave, there will be no red wave,” Biden asserted. “I’ve been all over the country. I didn’t believe it at all. Then in 2023, key elections, I went into those races, not every one of them, but a lot of them, saying we were going to win. We won those.”

Biden’s confidence in his electoral success reflects his far-fetched belief that the average American voter still supports him.

“The American public is not going to move away from me as an average voter. Again, I’m here for two reasons, pal. One, to rebuild the economy for hardworking middle-class people to give everybody a shot, a straight shot, everybody gets a fair chance. Number two, remember all this talk about how I don’t have the black support. Give me a break, come with me, watch. I’m getting frustrated by the elites, not you guys, the elites in the party. Oh, they know so much more. Any of these guys that don’t think I should run, run against me, announce for president, challenge me at the convention.”

Biden’s remarks come amid growing speculation about his ability to secure another term, with some party members expressing concern over his age and recent debate performances. However, Biden remains undeterred.

“In Europe, the polls were wrong in France and there’s no right wave here in America either,” Biden added.
