Biden Tells Newsom He Could Have His Job

It’s been rumored for weeks, even months, now that the Democratic Party will soon be forced to replace Biden as their choice for presidential nominee for someone who, well, knows where the hell he’s at. It’s also been rumored that California Governor Gavin Newsom could be that someone.

And now, even Biden himself is hinting as such.

It happened on Wednesday during a welcome reception for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Leaders. Biden was speaking, and all of a sudden, he went into a sidebar about just how great Newsom is, who naturally was in attendance.

“I want to talk about Governor Newsom. I want to thank him. He’s been one hell of a governor, man. Matter of fact, he could do anything he wants. He could have the job I’m looking for.”

It seems a little loaded, doesn’t it?

I mean, surely Biden doesn’t actually think Newsom is a great governor. Have you seen California recently? Hell, you don’t even have to have traveled there; just reading about or listening to the news over the past decade or so ought to give you some idea of how far the once Golden State has fallen.

Taxes are higher than ever, crime is out of control, homeless are everywhere, as are drugs and overdoses. And thanks to Newsom’s left-wing policies, things are only getting worse. There is a reason they say, ‘Don’t California my Indiana (input any state name.)”

And yet, Biden is somehow praising this guy?

No, this has got to mean that something else is up.

Add this to the fact that Newsom has been flying all over the country, taking serious political meetings, even flying to China to meet with President Xi Jinping last month, and it’s enough to make anyone with ears and eyes consider the obvious.

Given Biden’s poor cognizance and even more dismal approval ratings, I’d say the party, including Biden, has pretty much accepted Newsom as the replacement of choice.

Too bad polling shows he’ll do even worse against Trump than Biden…
