Speculation that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo will replace Sleazy Joe Biden as the Democrat nominee for president has gained considerable traction over the course of the last week.
The former V.P., and presumptive Democrat nominee, has been widely exposed as mentally unfit along the campaign trail. This combined with the revelations of him using the power of his office to enrich the lives of his son and other family members and his inability to stop groping women has severally weakened his viability. Even if Sleazy Joe could pull off a long-shot defeat of President Trump in November, he remains physically and mentally unfit for office.
“There is great concern among Mr. Biden’s family and friends about his mental health. Great concern. And his wife is the key, all right? Dr. Jill Biden. She has a Ph.D. in education. They’re worried about him,” Bill O’Reilly reportedly said. “And the thinking now is that, if Biden can’t make it, they’ll get him to a couple of weeks before the convention, and then he’ll step aside for health reasons and give his delegates to Cuomo.”
Long-time political insider O’Reilly is not alone in his assessment. The 77-year-old was faltering on the campaign trail, seemingly unable to keep pace with the rigorous primary schedule of younger candidates. He was also being outpaced by the likes of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who is one year his senior.
Although early media coverage of his repeated gaffes and miscues offered excuses, Biden’s mental deterioration has been undeniably apparent since hiding from COVID-19 via video feeds.
Former political advisor to Bill Clinton recently weighed in that change could be imminent. “It is perfectly possible for Cuomo to replace Biden as the nominee. Biden has at the moment about 1,200 delegates, but you need 1,900 to win the nomination. And most of the states have postponed their primaries,” Dick Morris reportedly said.
“New York, with over 200 delegates, has postponed its primary until June 23, the last in the country. I don’t think that’s a coincidence. I think Cuomo may have postponed it so that he would increase his chances. You could have a write-in movement for Cuomo.”
Although Governor Cuomo has gone on the record claiming he has no plans to run for president, he at least keeps the door cracked by arguing he’d make a top general election candidate.
“Cuomo has been doing very well with his daily press event, and the heart-wrenching drama of him and his brother on the air really attracted vast audiences of tremendous sympathy. It’s perfectly possible for Cuomo to replace Biden as a nominee…Cuomo would be a very different order-of-magnitude opponent than Biden was,” said Morris.
If nothing else, Cuomo would at least have the mental acuity to engage President Trump in a heated debate. During the nationally-televised Democratic party debates, voters watched Biden field puff questions as his opponents were repeatedly asked pointed questions. The only candidate to launch a significant offensive was California Sen. Kamala Harris. After taking Biden to task over his racist record on segregation and ties to the Ku Klux Klan, liberal support drained from her campaign. It was 2016 déjà vu all over again, as the establishment candidate was insulated and untouchable.
But the inability to remember facts or articulate complete and coherent thoughts makes Biden the left’s greatest liability. Everyone knows President Trump will eat him for lunch in a head-to-head debate. Couple that reality with the fact Democrat leaders are unwilling to go down the socialist rabbit hole with “Crazy” Bernie, and something has to give.
“I sincerely and totally believe that Joe Biden will not be the Democratic nominee on Election Day,” Fox News Tucker Carlson reportedly said. “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.”
