Obama warned Biden not to run. He told him he wasn’t cut out for the job and now that he’s there the top advisor for both Biden and Obama says he needs to go. I’m not a fan of David Axelrod but he’s made a successful career out of steering politicians in the right direction so when he says someone in his own party needs to bow out—You would think libs would listen.
Axelrod openly says that Biden is a sinking ship.
The View host, Joy Behar has a mixed-matched education and a failed career as a stand-up comic. The only reason she’s remotely relevant is that her pal Whoopi Goldberg brought her in on her creepy show. Somehow, in that thick head of hers, Behar thinks she’s big enough to tell Axelrod to ‘shut his mouth’ and get in line.
The panel contemplated whether Biden should run for a second term in 2024, in which guest co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin quoted Axelrod saying the president will be 82 years old at the beginning of a potential second term. She said Biden does not have the “strength and sharpness” he once had.
Co-host Whoopi Goldberg wondered which Republican has a shot at securing the 2024 presidential nomination. Co-host Sunny Hostin said she hopes “Death-Santis,” in reference to Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, does not run and opposes the ageism argument against Biden.
“I hope it’s not Death-Santis. I think he handled COVID miserably,” Hostin said. “I think he’s a fascist and a bigot. I think that people saying he’s [Biden] is too old, I mean, the former twice-impeached disgraced president, he’s such a young spring chicken. He’s gonna be 78 when Joe Biden is 81 and so I don’t like this ageism argument.”
There was a brief moment in the show where Sunny Hostin’s fantasized about California Governor Gavin Newson—Which, gross.
Behar went on to talk about how ‘fit’ Biden is and how he must work out—Unlike Trump, according to her.
Griffin said there are “sane” Republicans, namely former Vice President Mike Pence and former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who have a shot at winning the nomination. Goldberg told her she was being “ageist” toward the president and pointed to former President Ronald Reagan having Alzheimer’s when he was younger than Biden or Trump, so therefore age should not play a factor in one’s ability to govern effectively.
“You know, David Axelrod should keep his mouth shut,” Behar added. “And Ronald Reagan’s rule was ‘thou shalt not speak ill of a fellow Republican’ and I say unto you, David Axelrod, do not speak ill of a fellow Democrat.”
“And part of the reason he doesn’t [get credit] is performative,” Axelrod said. “He looks his age and isn’t as agile in front of a camera as he once was, and this has fed a narrative about competence that isn’t rooted in reality.”
To that point, the longer Behar is on air the more communist she sounds. She’s advocated for taking away free speech more times than I can count, wants to take all the guns like Nazi Germany, and demands a uniform party sharing one mind. All I can say is, Thank God she’s just a talking head.
