“On Tuesday night, Maloney appeared with her two rivals for New York’s 12th Congressional District for a debate hosted by NY1 and WNYC. During a lightning round, Maloney, Rep. Jerry Nadler and Suraj Patel were all asked if Biden should run in 2024.
‘I don’t believe he’s running for reelection,’ Maloney said.”
During a lightning round portion of a debate a candidate is pressured into providing more truthful and less nuanced answers. Rep. Maloney was honest in expressing a belief that a 79-year-old president, in obvious cognitive decline, wasn’t going to run for reelection.
If Biden was asked in a lighting round session of a debate “how would you defend Taiwan if China invaded the island nation?”, I wouldn’t be surprised if the cognitively-challenged septuagenarian answered, “I would make Corn Pop an admiral, he wouldn’t need more than a tugboat to save Taiwan, because he’s a bad dude.”
On Thursday, Maloney offered the following apology, demonstrating once again why citizens despise wishy washy politicians:
“Mr. President, I apologize. I want you to run. You are a great president and thank you for everything you’ve done for my state and all the states and all the cities in America.”
Maloney had nothing to apologize about, it’s reasonable to believe that a senile president with approval ratings in the 30’s shouldn’t run for reelection.
Maloney apologized only because she wants the full backing of the Democrat Party in her own reelection effort.
