On Sunday Joe Manchin was asked if he would support Joe Biden in 2024 on the Sunday shows and he wouldn’t answer the question.
So today, Andrea Mitchell decided she’d give it a shot on MSNBC and asked Manchin the same question.
But once again Manchin wouldn’t answer the question and this time he was adamant about it, saying he would NOT answer the question.
Manchin is all about pushing his social spending bill that Biden is onboard with and feels that answering a question on 2024 would bring politics into something that he really wants to be bipartisan. He calls it the ‘red white and blue’ bill as opposed to being one side or the other.
When Mitchell presses him on it, he flatly refuses to answer, emphatically saying three times “I’m not going to talk about it!”
I don’t know whether he just wants to avoid the question or if he really feels that doing so would make this political and hurt the bill’s chances for passage. He really does make a strong case for the latter though.
