According to an exclusive report from Axios, advisers to Joe Biden want him to kick off his presidential campaign by announcing Stacey Abrams as his running mate.
Am I the only one who thinks this is a dumb idea?
Something tells me some of the same people who worked for Hillary must be on Team Biden.
Or do all Democrat advisors think black people are this gullible?
“Well, we can’t say he carries hot sauce in his purse since he’s a man and doesn’t carry a purse. So how do we get Joe to appeal to the black voters? I know! Let’s have him carry around Stacey Abrams instead!”
Come on, people! The Identity Politics-obsessed Left accused Lynne Patton of being a “token” because Donald Trump employed her. How do you think they’ll react to this?
“Sure, folks. I’m an old white guy, but look! I picked this black woman to be my running mate! And that’s a big f*cking deal!”
But I think there’s a bigger problem with Team Biden floating Abrams — or anyone for that matter — as a running mate ten months before the Iowa caucus. Namely, the message it sends to primary voters.
Don’t tell me this doesn’t come off as over-confidence.
In other words, it’s 2016 all over again.
If you are lining up a VP before a single primary voter goes to the polls, aren’t you saying “I’m the anointed nominee?”
I’m thinking that won’t go over well among the rabble who make up the Democrat base.
These people still haven’t gotten over how the DNC paved the way for a Hillary nomination in 2016. And Biden settling on a running mate this soon is going to look like déjà vu all over again.
I can’t be the only person on the planet who thinks this shady con artist and sore loser is a poor choice for any public office – whether it’s governor, Vice President or dog catcher.
Even if Biden believes he is the inevitable nominee, why, of all people, would he hitch his wagon to a bitter loser with a shady fundraising past who doesn’t pay her taxes?
Abrams has so much baggage, she should have Samsonite stamped on her ass.
But for comic relief, I’m kind of hoping old Joe goes through with it.
Given his penchant for making incredibly racist remarks, I’m thinking it’d only be a matter of time before Biden trips up and calls Abrams his little pickaninny or, worse, a clean, articulate Aunt Jemima.
Think I’m overstating it? Think again. Anybody who’s been subjected to this gaffe machine over the years knows Joe Biden’s foot spends so much time in his mouth, he suffers from a bad case of athlete’s tongue.
And as much as Stacey Abrams loves to play the victim, I’m thinking even she won’t be cool with being victimized by her own “running mate.”
Besides which, unless Abrams enjoys being nuzzled, their joint appearances will be super awkward.
This is a train wreck waiting to happen.
