Joe Manchin is rather hesitant to support Joe Biden in 2024.
As my mother used to tell me, it is not what he said, but how he said it.
There were some clear veiled shots taken at Biden; shots I am sure that Biden will be wanting some payback for very soon.
Not Just Yet
Manchin was speaking with former CNN disgraced anchor Chris Cuomo.
Cuomo is making a comeback on a third-rate network called NewsNation.
When he asked Manchin about supporting Biden for a second term, Manchin replied, “If Joe Biden runs again — if he’s the Democrat nominee — depending on who the Republican nominee is, we’ll just have to wait and see.
“I’m not predicting anything or how I’ll support or not support […] but I can tell you this. Whoever the elected president is — Democrat, Republican, independent — everyone should pray they succeed. I’m gonna do everything I can to make that person successful.”
Cuomo acted surprised, as if Joe was doing a remarkable job, and told Manchin how rare it is for a sitting Democrat Senator not to support a Democrat White House occupant.
Manchin doubled down, stating, “I don’t know what to tell you on that. I’m just, I’m always for the right person when they’re running. […] Joe Biden is a good person with a good heart who wants to do the right thing.”
There was clearly doubt in Manchin’s tone, hinting that he had lost all faith in Joe Biden.
Let’s be serious, though…, there is not a single moderate Democrat that will be willing to hitch their horse up to Joe’s wagon right now.
