Democrat Rep. Dean Phillips (D-MN) has revealed that major opposition to President Joe Biden’s leadership is emerging in the Democratic Party.
Phillips, who usually votes along with Biden’s stated public policy positions, has warned that “literally hundreds” of congressional Democrats don’t want the president to run again in 2024.
However, Phillips, a successful businessman and one of the wealthiest members of Congress, revealed that most Democrats are too afraid to voice their opposition to Biden’s reelection bid.
Phillips’ remarks come after multiple polls have found that Democrat voters do not want Biden to be the party’s nominee again.
Voters are against Biden for a variety of reasons, including unfavorable economic conditions, skyrocketing inflation rates, disastrous foreign policy decisions, and the general view among some that he is too old and not mentally fit for office.
“This is not a knock on Joe Biden, just a wish for competition,” Phillips reportedly told The Atlantic.
“In the business world, if the dominant brand in a category had favorability ratings like the current president does, you would see a number of established brands jump into that category.
“Believe me, there are literally hundreds in Congress who would say the same thing.
“But they simply won’t f***ing say a word.”
The remarks also come after Biden has continued to show his age in recent weeks.
One of the most notable incidents was Biden falling on the stairs of Air Force one while visiting Europe this month, as Slay News reported.
This latest incident of Biden falling comes after White House physician Kevin O’Connor claimed last week that Biden was “a healthy, vigorous 80-year-old male who is fit to successfully execute the duties of the Presidency, to include those as Chief Executive, Head of State and Commander in Chief.”
Biden’s fall comes two years after he repeatedly fell while walking up the steps to Air Force One as he was preparing to go to Atlanta.
The incident in March 2021 happened just a few months after he fell and fractured his foot while he was allegedly chasing one of his dogs after he got out of the shower.
Biden also fell off his bicycle last summer while trying to talk to reporters during a staged photo op.
