President Joe Biden should not seek re-election in 2024, a former member of his administration argued on New York City TV on Tuesday.
After losing his 2020 re-election bid to Republican state Rep. Nicole Malliotakis (R-NY), former Rep. Max Rose (D-NY) spent six months as a "senior adviser on Covid-19 to the secretary of defense, Lloyd J. Austin III."
Rose is now attempting a political comeback in a rematch against Malliotakis.
"So many issues facing the city, but let's talk about the news of the day, which is that, allegedly, Biden told Al Sharpton that he is planning to run in 2024," Fox 5 NYC anchor Tina Cervasio said.
"If he runs. does he have your support?" she asked. "And do you support a Biden-Harris ticket again?"
"I do not think that Donald Trump should run in 2024. I do not think that Joe Biden should run in 2024," Rose said. "I'm sick and tired of that generation being in power."
"We've got to move on," Rose explained. "We have to turn the page — not just on this politics of ineffectiveness, but also this politics of division and vitriol. It's time to move on as a nation."

It weighs in at 240 pages but legal experts are still mocking Donald Trump’s emergency petition to the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn an 11th Circuit Court ruling and allow the special master to continue to inspect the 103 classified documents retrieved from him Mar-a-Lago home.
“Oddest SCOTUS petition. Very technical and not terribly logical,” observed Andrew Weissmann, an NYU School of Law law professor and former DOJ official who served as the General Counsel for the Federal Bureau of Investigation and as special counsel to then-FBI Director Robert Mueller.
The motion was addressed to Justice Clarence Thomas, who oversees the 11th Circuit courts. His wife, Ginni Thomas, is an avowed supporter of Trump and his “Big Lie” claims he won the 2020 election.
“SCOTUS should send him packing,” tweets former U.S. Attorney Joyce Vance, now an MSNBC/NBC News legal analyst. “No surprise here, this was why he paid former Florida Solicitor General Chris Kise $3 million to sign on, no one else on his team could handle this.”
“Just watch SCOTUS turn Trump down 9-0. (Or 8-1 if Thomas dissents . . . ),” writes retired Harvard professor of law Laurence Tribe. “Will The Donald start calling ‘his’ three justices traitors? Will he say they have a ‘death wish’ as he did with McConnell?”
Weissmann took another hit at Trump’s Lawsuit, declaring it “nutty.”
“Trump argument to SCOTUS: 11th circuit had power to stay Cannon decision BUT it [could] not take the classified docs away from SM Dearie review. Nutty and if he won Dearie wd just say he won’t review the docs bc they are not Trump’s.”
University of Texas School of Law professor of law Steve Vladeck says that while the lawsuit is “not *entirely* laughable,” but he thinks “it’s both (1) doomed to fail; and (2) unlikely to accomplish much even if it succeeds.”
Former federal prosecutor Renato Mariotti says, “I would not be surprised if the Supreme Court decides not to hear it.”
GOP strategist unsurprised by Walker abortion scandal: 'He’s a wealthy football player spreading his seed'
On Tuesday, POLITICO reported that strategists working for Georgia GOP Senate candidate Herschel Walker were aware for months of an allegation that he paid for a woman he impregnated to have an abortion — but simply hoped that the rumors could go uncommented on and unconfirmed in public until at least after the election.
One strategist put it bluntly in an anonymous statement to reporters: “It’s not that we knew about this specific case, but he’s a wealthy, famous football player who is obviously spreading his seed.”
This comes after Monday night's bombshell report from The Daily Beast detailing the scandal, with the woman coming forward with her receipt from the abortion clinic, and a $700 check and "Get Well" card both bearing Walker's signature.
"It was brought to the attention of those working on Walker’s behalf, in part as a means of discouraging him from running. His team downplayed the potential disruption it would cause. But, according to one of those people, they did not outright deny it," reported Meridith McGraw, Natalie Allison, and Sam Stein. "'It was, ‘Eh, it’s not going to come out, you’re being hyperbolic,’' said one top Georgia GOP operative, granted anonymity to discuss private conversations. 'The reaction was not, ‘They’re not going to say that because it never happened.’ It was like everything else, ‘Eh, people aren’t going to find out.’'
This is in stark contrast to Walker's public reaction to the story, which he called a "lie" before vowing to sue the Daily Beast. Shortly after the story broke, Walker's son Christian — a young right-wing activist who had previously served as one of his campaign surrogates — publicly accused his father of lying and detailed allegations that he had abused and threatened to murder his family.
Walker, who has the continued backing of both former President Donald Trump and the national Republican fundraising groups, is set to face off against Democratic Sen. Rev. Raphael Warnock in November. The race will advance to a runoff if neither candidate gets more than 50 percent.
