I don’t know if you recall when Rep Carolyn Maloney of New York went on TV and claimed that Joe Biden shouldn’t run in 2024, and was in fact not running, and then had to walk it all back with a bizarre on-air apology on CNN.
But now, that whole thing is making more sense, as we discover the root of what happened. It appears back at the end of July, Maloney was doing an interview with The New York Times when she was asked about Biden in 2024. She said the words “off the record,” and then proceed to blab what appeared to be a “secret” about Biden’s so-called run.
But there was one problem… she was NOT actually “off the record” when she blabbed and the NYT printed her words on August 1st.
Western Journal reported that a Democratic congresswoman who believed she was “off the record” may have accidentally dropped a massive hint as to President Joe Biden’s plans in 2024.
In an interview published by The New York Times on Saturday, Eleanor Randolph of the Times editorial board asked Democratic Rep. Carolyn Maloney of New York whether Biden should fun for president again in 2024.
“Off the record, he’s not running again,” Maloney said.
Jyoti Thottam, another member of the editorial board, informed Maloney that she was not, in fact, off the record.
“On the record? No, he should not run again,” Maloney said.
While Maloney apparently thought her initial answer could remain unpublished, the Times published the interview in full. This is because in journalism, both the interviewer and the interviewee must agree to comments being made “off the record.”
Contrary to Maloney’s belief, simply declaring “off the record” does not mean the interviewer is not allowed to publish the ensuing answer. Unless the interviewer agreed to the same terms, they are free to publish the answer if they please.
After the initial interview, Maloney tried to walk back her comments on CNN’s “New Day.”
She looked like an ISIS hostage, staring into the camera, speaking directly to the “Dear Leader.”
Dem Rep after saying she didn’t think Biden would run in 2024 during debate:
“Mr. President, I apologize. I want you to run. I happen to think you won’t be running, but when you run or if you run, I will be there 100%.” pic.twitter.com/o4Pkgaueof

But now it makes sense. She basically told the NYT, “off the record” that she knows he’s not running… and of course, we all know that.
But everyone is sitting around pretending that it’s a possibility for a man, who appears to have RAGING dementia, and a 28% approval, will actually be the Dems “guy” in 2024. I mean, give us all a break, already.
