Tucker Carlson suggested that the Democratic Party establishment would find a way to replace primary frontrunner Joe Biden before election day, stating that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo would emerge as an emergency nominee in Biden’s stead.
Carlson was speaking on a podcast about Biden’s campaign prospects.
“I sincerely and totally believe that Joe Biden will not be the Democratic nominee on election day.” Carlson referenced Biden’s increasing tendency towards mental gaffes and forgetfulness.
“He shouldn’t be working still. I’m not being mean. I know him. I’ve always liked him. But that’s true. And so, those are two trains traveling toward each other at high speed. Two competing imperatives. We’ve got to win, but we’ve got a guy who can’t win. Therefore, they’re gonna replace him.
If I had to bet I would think Andrew Cuomo would be the most likely to replace Biden.”
Cuomo has attracted attention from leading Democrats for his response to the Chinese coronavirus epidemic in New York, with his regular briefings on the situation surpassing the media attention devoted to Biden’s rambling and odd recreation room livestream appearances. Cuomo’s public profile throughout the crisis has been second only to President Trump.
A late-game swap of Biden for a more vital candidate such as Cuomo would be essentially unprecedented in American campaign history, but it’s not entirely impossible. With growing questions regarding Joe Biden’s mental acuity and possible cognitive decline, it’s foreseeable that an effort could be made at the Democratic convention to substitute in a candidate like Cuomo. Such a swap would need democratic socialist Bernie Sanders to be out of the picture, as his nomination would be unacceptable to the party elites.
The only recent comparable example to such a situation would be the 1968 Democratic Primary, when Hubert Humphrey emerged as the Democratic nominee for President despite not winning any state primaries or caucuses.
“Moderate” Democrat Senator Joe Manchin Wants Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz Removed From the Senate
So much for moderation and unity…
Conventional wisdom can often be misleading and at times dangerous if we believe in it too strongly.
Take for example West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. He is constantly marketed as the Democrats’ most moderate Senator. There is a grain of truth to this. Manchin has publicly stated that he opposes ending the filibuster and has also poured cold water on $2,000 stimulus checks. But that’s where the moderation ends.
Manchin is now saying that the Senate should entertain the idea of expelling Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) by using the 14th Amendment over their recent decision to challenge the Electoral College results.
On PBS’s Firing Line, Manchin said the Senate should look into the option after right-wing activists stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Manchin is of the opinion that President Donald Trump and Senators like Hawley and Cruz “incited” these demonstrators.
“That should be a consideration,” Manchin stated. “He understands that. Ted’s a very bright individual, and I get along fine with Ted, but what he did was totally outside of the realm of our responsibilities or our privileges.”
According to the 14th Amendment, no elected official “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”
Hyped up leftist pundits believe that the 14th amendment is applicable to Cruz and Hawley due to how they allegedly “incited” the riot by talking about electoral fraud and pointing out electoral irregularities.
“I’m totally convinced it was done because of political reasons. This was all politically motivated. This was calculated,” declared Manchin. “I believe that all my colleagues truly made a decision that was politically best for them and expedient for them. It was not what they believed to be true or false.”
Unquestionably, Manchin is an establishment hack through and through. He may have reasonable views on gun policy, in part due to West Virginia’s strong gun culture, but Manchin is still a member of the D.C. swamp. His recent statements demonstrate this. Republican nationalists should relieve him of the burden of holding public office in 2024.
