Much to the chagrin of panicked Democrats, President Joe Biden isn't going anywhere.

"I want you to know that despite all the speculation in the press and elsewhere, I am firmly committed to staying in this race, to running this race to the end, and to beating Donald Trump," Biden 'wrote' in a Monday letter to congressional Democrats, undoubtedly penned by his cabal of unelected officials who can't fathom releasing the ring of power.

"I have heard the concerns that people have ... I am not blind to them," the letter continues, adding "I wouldn't be running again if I did not absolutely believe I was the best person to beat Donald Trump in 2024."

The letter comes as Biden reportedly canceled a meeting with Senate Democrats led by Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA).

Meanwhile, five House Democrats have publicly called on Biden to drop out of the race, with several committee ranking members joining the call during a private call on Sunday, Axios reports.

  •     Many more Democrats have privately expressed the view that Biden needs to drop out, and an even larger group has voiced concerns about his ability to take on former President Trump.
  •     The Biden campaign's efforts to address those concerns, largely by dismissing the president's doubters, have stirred further discord among his fellow Democrats on Capitol Hill.

Biden, or someone who sounds like Biden, then reiterated his position in a Monday telephone interview with MSNBC.

No wait, it's him:

Biden then took a few shots at Trump, reading all the things his team wishes he had the cognition to say in real time.

Meanwhile, Biden's odds of winning the Democratic presidential nomination are spiking after this display of vigor.
