Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld has a “theory” about how the 2020 presidential election will turn out and it includes Joe Biden bowing out of the race entirely, potentially making way for his vice-presidential selection to win the Democratic nomination.
The Fox News host shared the idea with his co-hosts on “The Five,” where he said Biden’s continued gaffes (such as when he insulted the black community by saying they lacked diversity) would motivate Democratic leaders to push him out.
“Unlike the African-American community, with notable exceptions, the Latino community is an incredibly diverse community with incredibly different attitudes about different things,” Biden said to NPR reporter Lulu Garcia-Navarro, as BizPac Review reports. “You go to Florida, you find a very different attitude about immigration in certain places than you do when you’re in Arizona.”
These types of comments would result in Biden vacating the ticket in an eventual battle versus Trump, Gutfeld predicted.
“So will Biden’s stumble give Trump’s campaign new momentum? Do you think that this gaffe is going to attract any more votes to President Trump other than let’s say Kanye West?” co-host Juan Williams asked Gutfeld.
“Gaffes are great when they tell the truth,” he answered via the report. “And Joe Biden spoke the Party’s truth. They see blacks as a homogeneous entity. It’s why they mock and marginalize people like you just did with Kanye West.”
Gutfeld continued: “Anyone who is outside the box, Kanye West, Candace Owens, Thomas Sowell. You name it if you don’t fit into the Democrats’ assumption of what a black person should be and what Joe Biden decides who a black person should be.”
“The fact is the Dems just assume they don’t have to do squat for blacks because they’ve got them in the back pocket,” he also said per BizPac Review. “Meanwhile, Donald Trump is actively competing for those votes. He tried to get the lowest unemployment in modern history, he helped out historical black colleges, he went for prison reform.”
“Also, the difference between Republicans and Democrats, Republicans never denied Trump’s flaws,” Gutfeld continued. “They knew that he could be crude, rude, and even offensive.”
As BizPac Review reports, the Fox News host also pointed to Biden’s own alleged cognitive decline.
“The Democrats, they are in full denial of a substantial, structural flaw. Their candidate may be losing his mind. It’s not even that. It’s not funny. It’s kind of sad because it would be okay if you could laugh about it,” he said.
“But this guy, he’s not going to be the nominee, Juan, and you know it. He is going to be gone before November,” he predicted.
“Biden is going to be gone?” Williams pressed.
Gutfeld confirmed his comment and argued Biden’s sluggish vice-presidential selection could be evidence of his decision to leave.
“I predict that’s why they haven’t selected the VP yet,” he said. “Because you can’t select the VP until you have the P. If you select the VP, what if the VP should be P? What if you select Kamala Harris but she should be the P, so you can’t pick her for VP. That’s the theory.”
