Wow, there was a lot going on in this very short video. Let’s start with Lindsey and work our way down to Blumenthal.
I am not a huge fan of Lindsey Graham. I don’t trust him as far as I can throw him. I think once you’re part of the swamp for as long as he’s been, there is no way to redeem you, fully. I think Lindsey is a lot of talk and very little action. I think he’s been quiet when we needed him to roar, and I think he’s used MAGA and rode on President Trump’s coattails. But even after saying all that, I don’t think Lindsey Graham is evil like Mitt Romney or Liz Cheney and I don’t think he’s in with the “Deep State.” I think he’s a typical opportunistic establishment politician, who flows wherever the wind goes, and as a result, he’s once again, backing President Trump, because, unlike Liz Cheney, Lindsey knows he can’t beat Trump or his movement, so he’d rather “join them” instead… sort of, anyway.
Lindsey made it perfectly clear that he will be supporting President Trump if he runs again in 2024. And I am happy to hear that. I don’t expect a lot from Lindsey, and I know he’s an establishment stooge, but in this high-stakes game of DC politics, I’d rather have him publicly kiss the ring than not.
Another amusing thing about this video is the look on Lindsey’s face as Senator Blumenthal squirms and hems and haws over questions about if Joe runs in 2024. You can definitely tell that he doesn’t really want to answer that question, since most DEMOCRATS (75 percent) don’t want Joe running again… But CNN put him in the hot seat, and Lindsey is clearly enjoying it… watch the clip, and then let’s discuss the “warning” Richard B. actually issued to Joe.
“Do you think President Biden is the best candidate in 2024?”

Blumenthal just gave a secret away in his answer. He just let Joe Biden know that he better announce he’s not running immediately after the midterms or there will be hell to pay. He’s letting the Buffoon in Chief know exactly what is expected of him, and how this whole thing better play out.
Right now, Joe can pretend he’s running in 2024 all he wants, but after the midterm bloodbath, fun and games are over. He better fall on the sword for the party, or the party will force him on the sword, like it or not, and it won’t be pretty.
That was the not-so-subtle message that Blumenthal sent to Team Biden this morning — and my guess is you’ll be seeing more of this, because “Team Biden” is not on the “same page” with the rest of the Dem Party right now. Jill and Joe aren’t ready to give up power.
