Fox News “Outnumbered” co-host Kayleigh McEnany recently returned to the network after being absent for weeks following the birth of her second child.
Sean Hannity, who kicked off the segment by noting McEnany’s brand new book, spoke with former Arkansas GOP Gov. Mike Huckabee and McEnany about the upcoming 2024 presidential election. McEnany argued that Biden won’t be able to “sleep his way through” his 2024 presidential campaign as he did in 2020.
“While he’s obviously not prepared to run, the fact that the Democrats are now considering, well maybe we should go back to Al Gore or Hillary Clinton seems like a sign of desperation to me. And all I see in the Republican Party, um you know from Trump on down, is a deep solid bench of really strong America First, make America great again conservatives that would do a great job in an Administration,” Hannity said.
“Sure it tells you a lot: Al Gore, Hillary Clinton – that’s what we call reruns. It didn’t work the first time and it’s not going to work this time. There’s a robust bench to your point on the side of the Republican party. But Joe Biden, I mean, this is…he’s going to be coordinated that’s what’s going to happen,” McEnany said.
“He’s not going to have a meaningful primary challenge. Marianne Williamson, we all remember her, not going to work out there. But what I remember is being on Air Force One taking off with President Trump he would be setting off for five rallies. I could barely keep up with the man and then you would see Joe Biden’s team calling a lid at like 9 a.m. Calling a lid, meaning no more for the day,” she added.
McEnany continued: “He was able to sleep his way through the 2020 campaign thanks to covid-19. He cannot do that this time. And I’ve read reports that his allies and those who are supporting him are counting on the fact that they believe President Trump will be the nominee and he will pick a fight with the presidential debate commission. And therefore Joe Biden will not have to debate. Good luck with that because Trump trounced Joe Biden in a debate last time around. I watched it, it was the third presidential debate. Counting on hiding again not going to work.”
Last month, the former Trump administration press secretary announced she had written a book, “Serenity in the Storm: Living through Chaos by Leaning on Christ.”
On Amazon, the description of the book states: “Kayleigh McEnany brings to life the key cultural and political issues of our time, from the fall of Afghanistan to the Supreme Court’s abortion decision, analyzing world events through the lens of faith and providing readers with Serenity in the Storm. Our world, without question, is experiencing aberrational times. The ravages and life-altering realities of COVID-19 that I worked through as White House press secretary were just the start of it. What followed was a series of history-defining events. From the fall of Afghanistan to the nationwide crime wave, we’ve all endured painful images of death, destruction, and chaos.”
I’m excited to reveal the cover of my upcoming book “Serenity in the Storm: Living through Chaos by Leaning on Christ”!

To McEnany’s point, recent polls found that voters do not want Biden to run for re-election in 2024.
A brand new Yahoo News/YouGov poll found that a majority of registered voters believe Biden is “too old for another term” in office. Almost seven out of 10 voters (68%) admitted that the 80-year-old president’s age is a problem for them.
Even worse, the poll shows more Democrats agree rather with that assessment. Roughly 48% of Democrat voters said Biden’s age is an issue, with just 34% saying the president’s age was not a concern for them.
In early February, an AP-NORC poll found that Biden only has support from 37 percent of Democrats for a second term. Prior to the midterms last November, the same poll found that 52 percent wanted Biden to run again in 2024.
“While Biden has trumpeted his legislative victories and ability to govern, the poll suggests relatively few U.S. adults give him high marks on either. Follow-up interviews with poll respondents suggest that many believe the 80-year-old’s age is a liability, with people focused on his coughing, his gait, his gaffes, and the possibility that the world’s most stressful job would be better suited for someone younger,” the Associated Press reported.
