Biden Lays an Egg When Asked About Running in 2024

Amidst all the fuss over the 2024 GOP primary, it’s worth remembering that Democrats are currently stuck in limbo, with Joe Biden refusing to make a decision on a re-election run. He was challenged again on that front over the weekend while attending Easter festivities, and he laid an egg.

Understand that I mean that literally. He actually talked about squeezing eggs outside of what I would assume would be his backside. This is either the weirdest or most senile man to ever occupy the White House.

I could just insert a meme of someone looking cross-eyed at this point and end the article, but I’ve got a word count to hit so let’s do this thing.

What in the world is Biden talking about? Someone asks him if he’s running in 2024 and his response is to riff on the finer points of humans laying eggs. I don’t even know what he was trying to say, which is an evergreen statement when talking about the current White House resident.

My favorite part of that clip is Jill Biden’s forced laughter as she tries to pretend her husband is actually hilarious and not at all in steep mental decline. I’d say I feel sorry for her if she weren’t so nakedly ambitious as to have put the president into this position in the first place. About the time Biden’s eye exploded during a 2020 primary debate would have been a good time to see the writing on the wall and act accordingly, but Jill Biden was not going to be denied her moment in the sun. Sure, we all suffer in the meantime, but that’s a small price to pay for a woman in her 70s to cosplay as Eleanor Roosevelt.

But I digress, let’s chat about why Biden continues to not confirm a 2024 run because I think there are some very ascertainable reasons. For one, the moment he declares, he has to start making financial disclosures. Any lack of fundraising would not look good for the incumbent, belaying a lack of excitement and opening up a door for possible challengers. By waiting until after the second quarter’s reporting deadline, he’s able to lock himself into the latter part of the campaign season with an air of inevitability.

Then there’s the second part of the plan, which is to ice out other potential candidates. By waiting, he can essentially freeze the field. Pete Buttigieg, Kamala Harris, and Gavin Newsom are left in limbo if Biden keeps signaling a second run while not fully committing to it.

Lastly, it’s pretty clear based on past statements that Biden only wants to run again if it’s against Donald Trump. Right or wrong, he perceives the former president as easily beatable. That’s not my opinion. Biden has pointedly said that a decision to run will be based on whether Trump looks to be the GOP nominee or not. Again, that puts the timeline of a re-election announcement sometime in the late summer or early fall.

Regardless, at least Biden’s 2023 Easter went better than 2022, where the Easter Bunny had to come and wrestle him away from reporters after he began to randomly rant about Afghanistan. That’s progress, I suppose.
