Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro said Monday that the American people were “too smart” to fall for it if President Joe Biden attempted to “lie his way to the next election” in 2024.
Pirro joined her cohosts on the rush-hour panel show “The Five” to discuss the state of the economy and President Biden’s prospects for reelection — as well as the number of Democrats who seemed ready to say that Biden should step aside before 2024.

Cohost Dana Perino began the segment by pointing out the fact that there were a number of Democrats who were “openly saying he should not run again in 2024.”
“Yeah, they’re openly saying it because they don’t want to lose, because they know he’s nothing more than an anchor around their neck,” Pirro replied.
She then turned to cohost and former Congressman Harold Ford Jr. (D-TN), who had suggested that if Biden truly wanted to turn things around he should listen to the expert economists when he didn’t like what they said as much as when he did — and work with oil companies rather than against them if he wanted to bring down the cost of gas.
“You know, I like everything that you say, Harold, but here’s the problem: We have a President of the United States who doesn’t know how to lead, so he doesn’t know how to do all those things that you suggest that he does,” Pirro continued.
She went on to argue that Biden had surrounded himself with people who were “lying to us about the economy, about inflation.”
“The American people know inflation is at 8.6%. The feds are raising the interest rate. Consumers aren’t as interested as they were in purchasing. And what we’ve got is one-quarter of negative GDP, and we’re coming to the next quarter. What is Biden’s answer? He’s so clueless, that man, that he segues to electric vehicles,” Pirro continued. “They ask him about the recession, and he talks about electric vehicles.”
“I don’t know any — I don’t know any veteran, any senior citizen, I don’t know anyone working paycheck to paycheck, which is a big piece of this country, who has $60,000 to buy an electric car,” she concluded. “He is tone-deaf. Everything he says is not accurate in terms of this economy. And he can’t lie his way to the next election. You just can’t. American people are too smart.”
