With reports of former President Trump possibly running for president in 2024, the Biden administration is not turning their noses up at their potential opposing candidate. White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain talked to Mike Allen of Axios HBO on Sunday about how serious of a candidate the former president is.

“I wouldn’t want to estimate or underestimate Donald Trump as an opponent if he chooses to run,” Klain said.

Trump has said he is considering to run in 2024. No official announcements have been made yet.

President Biden is also up for a rematch. He told reporters in March that while he’s “never been able to plan” four years into the future, but that he expects to run for a second term.

“My experience, Mike, is that incumbent presidents are judged on their record,” Klain said in his interview. “President Trump had a bad record in 2020. Joe Biden is hopefully assembling a powerful record to run on if he runs for reelection in 2024.”

Don Lemon loses it on Senators Manchin, Sinema for holding up voting bill: ‘that’s bull***’

CNN’s Don Lemon cursed out those “moderates” such as Senators Joe Manchin  (D-WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) “who are blocking people’s access to the voting booth, they want to use Dr. King conveniently. They’re the biggest hypocrites on the planet.”

“If Sinema and Manchin really want to honor the legacy of Dr. King and all the people who fought for civil rights and voting rights in this country, what they would do is to carve out for voting rights with the filibuster” he continued.

“But for some reason they are stuck with these rules that are backwards…The filibuster has been used to block civil rights legislation forever and so we need to stop that. We evolved. Just because there is a rule doesn’t mean that that rule can’t change. The Constitution is amended. So it’s time to amend the rules. And fight and, and protect the most sacred right that we have as Americans, and that is the right to vote.”

Lemon then quotes Dr. Martin Luther King about a “white moderate, who is more devoted to ‘order’ than to justice….who lives by a mythical concept of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait for a ‘more convenient season.”

That sounds like the moderates, says Lemon, referring to Senators Manchin and Sinema. “And you’re supposed to be a Democrat who espouses to the ideals of Dr. King. That’s bull***t that’s B.S.”
