Moderate Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) refused to say if he would support President Joe Biden for a White House run in 2024 — an omission that is becoming increasingly popular among top Democrats — during a Thursday interview with Chris Cuomo on his podcast “The Cuomo Project.”

When Cuomo asked if Biden has earned himself a second term, Manchin’s reply was non-committal at best.

“If Joe Biden runs again and he is the Democratic nominee, depending on who the Republican nominee is, we will just have to wait and see,” he stated. “I am not predicting anything or how I would support or not support, or get involved or not. But I can tell you this, whoever the elected President is – Democrat, Republican, independent – every one of us should pray they succeed.”

Manchin said earlier in the interview that he doubted a Democrat could even carry his home state of West Virginia, expressing disdain for many of Biden’s top policies — including his notoriously radical energy agenda.

The West Virginia Democarta did, however, claim Biden was a good person but added this character trait alone is not enough.

There is much to respect about Manchin’s prayerful reverence for the office of Commander-in-Chief — no matter his party. Yet, the Senator should realize the Democrats are not acting in good faith, or in America’s best interests. Maybe he should take the Republican voters of his state seriously — and consider a change.

Manchin isn’t the first Democrat to not answer questions about supporting Biden in 2024. Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO) also shied away from the controversy when she was asked straight up.

“I don’t want to answer that question… I mean, he’s the President, he has the right to run for a second term, absolutely… But I’d rather you not do that”

WATCH:

Biden is a controversial figure for the modern Democrat Party — especially headed into the 2022 midterms. He may even be more radical than the likes of Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) due to his average outward appearance.


While Sanders and Warren prefer their radicalism to be overt, Biden and his cronies prefer a covert style.

In many ways, covert radicalism is far more dangerous to the American people because it cannot be seen — or called out — as clearly. We continue to learn that lesson now more than ever, as the 2022 midterms and 2024 election can’t come fast enough.
