‘We’re not even in the same book’: Rep Cohen signals discontent after critical Dem caucus on Biden run

Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) voiced discontent within the party regarding President Biden’s status as their nominee in November when he emerged from a critical caucus meeting at the DCCC headquarters.

A reporter asked the lawmaker if Democrats were “all on the same page” and a dejected Cohen replied, “No.”

“We’re not even in the same book,” he added.

The marching orders appear to have gone out, with even Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) proving to be a reliable mouthpiece for the party establishment she once ran against.

The socialist bartender told reporters on Monday, “The matter is closed. [Biden] has reiterated that this morning, he has reiterated that to the public. Joe Biden is our nominee, he is not leaving this race. He is in this race, and I support him.”

Still, there seem to be holdouts who are concerned about Biden’s mental acuity.

Axios reporter Andrew Solender posted on X: “Rep. Steve Cohen tells me some people said in the Dem Caucus meeting that Biden should withdraw.”

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) have aligned with Biden and party loyalists are beginning to fall in line.

Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) flip-flopped on Tuesday, voicing support for Biden after privately calling on the president to drop out over the weekend.

“[Biden] said he’s gonna remain in, he’s our candidate, and we’re all going to support him,” Nadler told reporters ahead of Tuesday’s meeting.

Biden supporters were quick to pounce on Cohen — there are few things more pleasing than watching the left eat its own:
