One Fox News host has revealed some surprising inside information about the Democratic Party’s gameplan this election season.
Tucker Carlson says Biden insiders have told him that the former vice president will not get his party’s nomination to face President Donald Trump this November because he lacks the mental fitness.
Joe “Gaffe” Biden
Carlson’s comments came during a recent appearance on the Charlie LeDuff podcast. The interview can be seen in its entirety here.
As anyone who has been following the 2020 race knows, Biden has exhibited signs — from mental mixups to an inability to put a simple sentence together — which suggests that he may not be mentally fit to challenge President Trump in November. This, in turn, has made the Biden campaign somewhat of a joke to the general public, although some, on both sides of the aisle, have publicly stated their sincere concern that Biden may not be well, and, rather than running for president, ought to be seeking medical assistance.
However you view the situation, Carlson says that he has inside information that this lack of mental fitness will prevent Biden from becoming the Democrats’ 2020 nominee.
“I sincerely and totally believe that Joe Biden will not be the Democratic nominee on Election Day,” Carlson said.
Now, this may come as somewhat of a surprise to many considering that Biden — with 1,183 delegates — is at this point virtually certain to reach the 1,991 delegates needed to win the nomination.
With this in mind, LeDuff asked Carlson, “How does that math work?”
“It’s not about math,” Carlson replied. “It’s about will.”
The Fox host continued: “Two competing imperatives: We’ve got to win, but we’ve got a guy who can’t win. Therefore, they’re going to replace him. He’s not going to make it, and the people around him know that. Trust me, I know them. And I know they know it because they’ve said it to me.”
So, now what?
If what Carlson says is indeed the Democrats’ gameplan, then the obvious question is “who is going to be the nominee?” After all, the runner-up, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) — the enemy of the Democratic establishment — certainly isn’t going to get the nod.
Well, according to Carlson, it’s New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. “If I had to bet, I would think Andrew Cuomo would be the most likely to replace Biden,” Carlson said. We’ll have to see if he’s right.
