There has been a lot of talk lately about whether President Joe Biden ought to run for reelection in 2024, and, if not, who should be the Democrats’ nominee.
According to Breitbart News, Bil Kristol, the anti-Trump pundit, seems to believe that he has the answer: Pop star John Legend.
Kristol made the suggestion Sunday in a Twitter post. He claimed that he got the idea from a “mass email” that he received.
“I’ve been saying for a while that we need as our next president our version of the admirable [Ukrainian President] Volodymyr Zelensky,” Kristol wrote. “Today I got another ‘personal message’–i.e., mass e-mail–from @johnlegend on behalf of Democrats. Which leads me to ask: When Biden steps aside–John Legend in 2024?”
Kristol didn’t bother to expound on the idea. So, Twitter users did so for him.
“This is a parody account now, right?” one user tweeted.
“Imagine going from advising [President Ronald] Reagan and [President George] Bush Sr. to posting stuff like this,” another wrote.
This is far from the first time that Kristol has made such an absurd statement on his Twitter account. And, it probably won’t be the last.
Back in March, Kristol likened Biden’s gaffe, in which he called for a regime change in Russia, to former President Ronald Reagan’s famous statement, “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall.”
“Gaffes” by U.S. presidents, per the foreign policy establishment: “For God’s sake, this man cannot remain in power.” — Joe Biden, Royal Castle, Warsaw March 26, 2022 “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!” — Ronald Reagan, Brandenburg Gate, West Berlin June 12, 1987.
If you are not familiar with Kristol, this tweet probably tells you everything that you need to know about him. Kristol, though, hasn’t gotten everything that he ever said wrong.
The Democrat powers that be seem to be making a push to ensure that someone other than Biden is the Democrat nominee for the 2024 presidential election. We have no idea who that will be, but, what Kristol got right, is that it’s probably not going to be Vice President Kamala Harris. John Legend likely would be a better candidate than her.
