Liberals are so eager to get rid of Donald Trump that they are considering the 2020 presidential race already.
However, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) rained on their parade when he said the group of prospective Democrats who could run for president in 2020 look like an “old-folks’ home,” as per The Hill.
And it’s true of the ones I’ve heard liberals talk about: Biden will be 78, Sanders will be 79, and Hillary Clinton, though it’s doubtful she will run again, will be 74.
People that old aren’t prime material for first presidencies. Surely there are other options? Perhaps Clinton has scared all the young people away.
I can just imagine someone announcing the Democrat candidates for presidency. They’d all file onto the stage with walkers and in wheelchairs with quilts over their laps.
Reid’s response comes after he was asked if he would support a White House run by Vice President Joe Biden, and his main concern was the age of the prominent Democrats who were to likely be the candidates in 2020.
“It depends on who’s running,” Reid told his staff. “It appears we’re going to have an old-folks’ home. We’ve got [Elizabeth] Warren; she’ll be 71. Biden will be 78. Bernie [Sanders] will be 79.” They would need a lot of makeup to cover up the age spots, but I’m sure Hillary could give them some good tips.
Biden has made several jokes about running for president and said that while he does not plan to, “Never say never.”
Biden has gained most of his popularity by appearing in many, many memes and being bosom buddies with Barack Obama. Because of his close relationship with Obama, I imagine the liberals would vote for him, despite what a horror show that would be.
“Oh, you made a friendship bracelet for Obama? Run for president.” Why would the American people vote for Biden? So we can have a repeat of these last eight years? I’ll take a hard pass on that one, that’s for sure.
These Democrats should be in an old folks home rather than the White House. Some younger blood is really needed so the party can get back in touch with We the People.
Americans want to be part of a strong country, with a capable man or woman at the helm — not someone who’s so old as to have troubled health throughout his or her presidency.
