This was awkward.
Far-left ‘squad’ member Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) on Sunday refused to endorse Brandon for 2024.
Democrat lawmakers and Democrat strategists don’t want Brandon running for president in 2024.
Former Obama advisor David Axelrod said Brandon, who will turn 80 this November, is just too old to run for president again.
“The presidency is a monstrously taxing job, and the stark reality is the president would be closer to 90 than 80 at the end of a second term, and that would be a major issue,” David Axelrod said.
Democrat lawmakers running for reelection don’t want to be associated with Brandon because of his cratering poll numbers.
Brandon’s poll numbers continue to collapse.
AOC awkwardly laughed when CNN’s Dana Bash asked her to endorse Brandon for 2024.

AOC: “We’ll cross that bridge when we get to it…”
CNN’s Dana Bash: “That’s not a ‘yes.’”
After awkward pause, AOC: “Yeah, you know…” pic.twitter.com/lqlLNybZFl
