On Tuesday, Fox News host Kayleigh McEnany commented that she believes President Joe Biden will run for reelection in 2024 due to his stubbornness and unwillingness to listen to anyone who would advise against it. However, she also believes there is only one thing that could stop the president, the escalation of congressional investigations into his son, Hunter Biden.
McEnany made the remarks during an interview on Fox News’ “Jesse Watters Primetime.”
“Does he look like he could campaign for the presidency again?” Watters asked, to which McEnany replied, “No, he doesn’t. But he will.”
“The Five” co-host asked Watters to “look at the episodes in his life” where the president has ignored the advice of his advisers and other experts, such as the botched withdrawal from Afghanistan.
McEnany also mentioned the advice that Biden received: not to repeat the lie that he had been a staunch civil rights activist in the 1960s. However, in January, he bragged about being arrested during a civil rights march while addressing students of Morehouse College and Clark Atlanta University, two historically black colleges.
“He is so stubborn. … He’s stubborn, so he will run again, but no, he’s clearly not capable,” she said.
Watters raised the possibility of a congressional investigation into the Biden family’s dubious business dealings with China and Ukraine while he was vice president under Obama.
“What if these investigations into the Biden family heat up in the House and the Senate and they put out there all of these suspicious transactions and banking records and show that he was taking money from the ChiComs right under Barack Hussein Obama’s nose?” Watters said. “How’s he going to say, ‘Yeah, I’m running for president again’?”
McEnany said, “That is the only thing that can stop him. The singular thing is his family.”
“If the House investigations ramp up and Hunter Biden comes to the forefront — and we know there’s so much there, we’ve only scratched the surface — the interests of his family are the only thing that could get him to step aside, I think,” she said.
However, McEnany also pointed out that if he did not run again, he would certainly lose the power to pardon his own son, possibly giving him an incentive.
Biden’s approval rating is abysmal with a Gallup poll released on Tuesday revealing only 40 percent of Americans approve of the job the president is doing — a 4-point drop since August.
Biden’s approval is among the lowest in recent memory and is lower than former President Donald Trump’s was at his seventh quarter in office, the same point that Biden has currently reached in his presidency.
“[Jimmy] Carter, Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton and Trump all averaged 41% or 42% approval during their seventh quarter, while Barack Obama’s 45% average during that time was slightly higher,” Gallup said.
Biden’s low rating is a likely liability for Democrats in the upcoming midterms, the report said.
“Americans’ evaluations of the job Biden is doing as president continue to be more negative than positive, as they have for over a year now,” Gallup said. “Given the relationship between low job approval ratings and midterm election outcomes, Biden’s unpopularity is likely to be a drag on his fellow Democrats’ chances in this fall’s voting.”
