President Joe Biden had a little delusional moment in Tuesday when he chastised a reporter telling them “to read the polls” which Biden alleged proves the American people want him to run for re-election. In fact, the polls show the exact opposite, but that did not stop him from engaging in an altercation; facts rarely get in Biden’s way.
“Mr. President, what’s your message to Democrats who don’t want you to run again?” the reporter asked at the congressional picnic at the White House.
Biden stopped in his tracks and told the reporter “they want me to run” and for him to “read the polls.”
When the reporter pointed out the polls show roughly two-thirds of Democrats say they do not want Biden to run again, the president snapped back: “Read the polls, Jack, you guys are all the same.”
Biden walked towards the reporter and camera and stated “that poll showed that 92% of Democrats, if I ran, would vote for me” referring to a New York Times survey.
Fox News reports:
Both the reporter and Biden reiterated their claims to each other, with the reporter again asserting that a majority of Democrats do not want Biden to campaign in 2024, and Biden refuting the statistic, insisting it was quite the opposite.
The interaction comes as the media has highlighted numerous polls that show Biden is in hot water with American voters, including voters of his own party. The numbers Biden and the reporter spoke of came from a New York Times/Sienna College poll conducted between July 5 and 7.
The reporter was correct in their analysis of the poll which revealed a whopping 64% of Democratic voters agree that someone else should take the mantle in 2024.
Fox News writes that when it comes to Biden’s statistic of 92%, “that number does appear in the poll, but is not attributable to a question about whether he should or should not run in 2024.”
“Instead, the statistic is in reference to the fact that 92% of Democrats would still vote for Biden in a hypothetical rematch against former President Donald Trump.”

Videotapes from Jan. 6 Committee Witness Interviews Vanish
Videotapes containing witness interviews conducted by the Democrat-led January 6 congressional committee have disappeared. The chairman of the House Administration oversight subcommittee, Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-Ga.), expressed his apprehension on the “Just the News, No Noise” television show.
According to Loudermilk, all videotapes of depositions have vanished, raising questions about the preservation of crucial evidence. He argued that, under House rules, these tapes qualified as congressional evidence, especially since some clips were aired during hearings. Loudermilk contended that the tapes should have been preserved by the now-defunct Jan. 6 committee and its chairman, Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.).
Loudermilk’s revelation has broader implications, potentially impacting criminal trials in both state court in Georgia and federal court in Washington, where individuals, including former President Donald Trump, face charges related to the Capitol riot on Jan. 6, 2021. Notably, Trump’s legal team had recently requested evidence from the Jan. 6 committee but was denied by a judge.
The situation takes a further twist as Loudermilk disclosed that the J6 committee had sent certain evidence, such as transcripts, to the Biden White House and the Homeland Security Department. Shockingly, these transcripts have now been returned to Loudermilk’s GOP-led subcommittee almost entirely redacted, preventing the disclosure of their contents.
The lack of records regarding witnesses, their statements, and the extensive redactions have raised concerns among House Republicans. Loudermilk emphasized that these documents belong to the House and should not have been sent in such a heavily redacted form. The chairman questioned the motives behind the redactions, asking why a Democrat-run House was allowed to have unredacted documents while a Republican committee’s efforts were obstructed. This development adds another layer of complexity to the ongoing investigations into the events surrounding January 6, 2021.
