Joe Biden stands no chance against Donald Trump in 2020, it’s just that simple.
The former Vice President has been an underwhelming candidate in every sense of the word this go-round, having made a habit of alternately spouting nonsensical gibberish and hurling insults at the voters whom he’s addressing.
And, even if the Democrats were surprisingly willing to look past this major flaw, Biden has now been credibly accused of sexual assault by a former staffer named Tara Reade, whose story has been corroborated by multiple people on multiple occasions.
The only way in which he would be able to put up a fight against Trump in November would be by announcing a blockbuster of a running mate, but finding someone of the caliber who’s willing to jump on a potential sex offender’s ticket will require lots of work.
A new Democratic “committee” seems eager for the challenge.
A newly-launched committee called “Draft Michelle Obama” is pushing for Joe Biden, the apparent Democrat presidential nominee, to select the former first lady as his running mate.
“Joe Biden has said he would choose Michelle Obama as his running mate ‘in a heartbeat.’ The aim of this campaign is to build on the substantial grassroots support for a potential Michelle Obama candidacy and help garner media attention for a vice-presidential nominee who has the power to beat Donald Trump,” the group said in a statement released Monday.
The statement adds: “The Committee to Draft Michelle Obama firmly believes that Ms. Obama will not only benefit the Democratic ticket this November but also help lead this country to be more just and caring. However strongly we support Ms. Obama as Vice President Biden’s running mate, we will transfer our resolve to whoever joins the ticket to defeat the most dangerous incumbent in the history of our nation.”
The group, which filed with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) in late April, is supported by Democratic fundraisers Nadine Hack and Mack Wilbourn, spokesperson Drew Zuckerman told The Hill.
Michelle Obama has repeatedly insisted that she has no interest in returning to the White House anytime soon, which makes this newly formed organization appear somewhat useless.
But, then again, that’s nothing new for American politicians.
