Despite an overwhelming number of people who don’t want him to seek a second term, President Joe Biden announced his reelection bid in a process that has been engineered to ensure that he will be a shoo-in for the Democrat nomination and on Wednesday, he responded to a reporter’s question on the 70 percent of Americans who have rejected the idea of another four years under the deeply unpopular leader.
In what had the appearance of a planted question and scripted response, Biden called on Mary Bruce of ABC News during a joint White House press conference with South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol with the reporter asking him about the NBC News poll, providing him with a perfect opening to present himself as the defender of “democracy” who would save the nation from the existential threat of the likely 2024 GOP nominee, former President Donald J. Trump.
“You recently launched your reelection campaign. You’ve said questions about your age are legitimate and your response is always ‘Just watch me.’ But the country is watching, and recent polling shows that 70 percent of Americans, including a majority of Democrats, believe you shouldn’t run again. What do you say to them? What do you say to those Americans who are watching and aren’t convinced?” Bruce asked, laying out a perfect setup. “You’ve said you can beat Trump again. Do you think you’re the only one?”
"You've said you can beat Trump again, do you think you're the only one?" @marykbruce asks Pres. Biden at a joint news conference with South Korea's Pres. Yoon.

“I may not be the only one, but I know him well and I know the danger he presents to our democracy and we’ve been down this road before,” Biden responded before tossing out his own numbers instead of the NBC News poll showing deep dissatisfaction with an extension of his disastrous tenure.
“And with regard to — to age, you know, and — and polling data, I noticed the polling data I keep hearing about is that I’m between 42 and 46 percent favorable rating, et cetera, and — but everybody running for reelection in this time has been in the same position. There’s nothing new about that. You’re making it sound like Biden is really underwater… number one,” he said.
“Number two, when the same polling data asks whether they think what kind of job I’ve done, it gets overwhelmingly positive results — from 58 percent thinking everything from the CHIPS Act and the — all the things we’ve done,” Biden continued with his response. “You know, we’ve created — like I said, we’ve created 12 million new jobs. We’ve created 800,000 manufacturing jobs. We have economic growth moving.”
“We’re in a situation where the climate — we’ve invested more money and more help in dealing with the climate crisis than any nation in the world. And so, things — things are moving,” he said. “And the reason I’m running again is there’s a job to finish.”
The idea that Biden could be getting fed scripted questions during his presser isn’t just a wild conspiracy theory as some would probably suggest. He was BUSTED using a “cheat sheet” during Wednesday’s presser, another example of his Potemkin Village presidency.

According to the numbers from NBC News, 70 percent of all Americans and 51 percent of Democrats expressed the opinion that Biden should not seek a second term, with nearly half saying that age is the major reason. Biden will be 87 years old in 2029 when he leaves the White House if reelected.

Democrats have consistently expressed a desire to move on from Biden but the fact is that the DNC effectively rigged the primary process by jumping South Carolina and its heavily black, pro-Biden voters to the front of the line as a launching pad for his reelection. The DNC also isn’t going to allow his one serious opponent, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. to debate him, protecting the incumbent from any serious internal challenge until he faces off against Trump – or whoever the GOP nominee is – in what will be an unfair campaign where he will receive unanimously favorable coverage from the thoroughly corrupt media.
