Biden Calls in to Morning Joe: “The Voters Have Spoken”

President Biden phoned in early this morning for a conversation on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” and dared his Democratic critics to challenge him at the convention in August.

“I’m getting so frustrated by the elites in the party. … They know so much more,” Biden said, mockingly. “If any of these guys don’t think I should run, run against me. Go ahead. Announce for president — challenge me at the convention!”

Biden also penned a letter to fellow Democrats in Congress:

Biden said he’s “not blind to” the concerns within his party about his re-election bid, some of which he allowed were in “good faith,” but said the voters decide the nominee of the Democratic Party.

“The question of how to move forward has been well-aired for over a week now. And it’s time for it to end. We have one job. And that is to beat Donald Trump,” Biden wrote. “Any weakening of resolve or lack of clarity about the task head only helps Trump and hurts us.”
