Delusional or desperate? Dems say Biden is seen as ‘Trump slayer’ who can do it again in 2024

President Joe Biden may be the Democrats’ only hope to ‘slay’ Donald Trump if he were to receive the 2024 Republican presidential nomination.

Presidential historian Douglas Brinkley believes that, despite his age and questionable mental capacity, Biden is currently in the best position to take down the former president in a 2024 rematch. What this says about the Democrat Party aside, Biden had previously billed himself as a transitional president, signaling that he only planned to serve a single term.

“Why would he get out now?” presidential historian Douglas Brinkley asked Politico. “He has no clear successor and what matters here is Trump. Joe Biden is seen as the Donald Trump slayer and many Democrats think he can do it again.”

Representative Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., says that she didn’t like Biden at first and was not initially for a second term, but now describes herself as a “convert.”

“He was not my first or second choice for president, but I am a convert,” she said. “I never thought I would say this, but I believe he should run for another term and finish this agenda we laid out.”

The Democrat Party lacks any clear path forward except for Biden, as opposed to the Republican Party which has a wealth of potential presidential candidates. The most popular of these hypothetical candidates is Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.

DeSantis recently brought home a red wave which cemented a crimson future for the previously purple state, though he has indicated that he is looking to continue leading the Sunshine State and has no current interest in the Oval Office. This is good news for Trump, who announced his decision to run in 2024 following the midterm elections.

While there has been a bit of tension between the two GOP stars, liberal pundit Jonathan Chait recently posited that Trump would seek help from DeSantis in the future in the form of a pardon.

“What interests would Trump have in common with DeSantis? For one thing, DeSantis could offer Trump legal protection — either pardons or immunity from additional prosecution,” he wrote in a post for the New York Times that assumes Trump would lose an election to the governor. He goes on to argue that the former president’s anger over losing would eventually be overshadowed by his desire for legal protection from prosecution.

Regardless of the drama that may or may not take place in the Republican Party’s future, it would appear that Democrats are somehow in a worse position with one player on the field and no bench warmers.
