Dem senator warns Trump may ‘win it by a landslide’ but his brutal take gets even worse

A possible “landslide” for former President Donald Trump wasn’t the only outcome a blue state senator warned about if President Joe Biden remained in the race.

Rumors were promptly dispelled as fact Tuesday when Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet appeared on CNN to confirm reports about what he’d said during a closed-door meeting of the Democratic Caucus about the state of the presidential election.

Joining CNN’s “The Source with Kaitlan Collins,” the host wasted no time raising a report from her colleague Dana Bash that, along with Montana Sen. Jon Tester and Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown, Bennet had expressed his “worrisome” belief that Biden can’t win the 2024 election.

“It’s true that I said that,” the lawmaker expressed before reasoning, “Joe Biden was 9 points up at this time the last time he was running. Hillary Clinton was 5 points up. This is the first time in more than 20 years that a Republican president has been up in this part of the campaign.”

“Donald Trump is on track, I think, to win this election, and maybe win it by a landslide,” he continued before adding, “and take with him the Senate and the House.”

While he contended that his own state wasn’t in play for the GOP leader come November, Bennet’s concern came as Cook Political Report shifted six states closer to Trump’s favor including Arizona, Georgia, and Nevada moving from “Toss Up to Lean Republican” and Minnesota, Nebraska’s 2nd District, and New Hampshire shifting from “Likely Democrat to Lean Democrat.”

“The White House in the time since that disastrous debate, I think has done nothing to really demonstrate that they have a plan to win this election, that they have a convincing plan to win in the battleground states where we have to win in order to win this election and they need to do that,” lamented the congressman.

Bennet refused to go so far as to be the first Democrat from the Senate to call for Biden to step aside even as the president’s communications team has struggled to recoup from the debate performance and deflect reports that a movement specialist repeatedly visited the White House.

“I could have diagnosed him from across the mall,” said board-certified neurologist Dr. Tom Pitts who contended that the president was suffering from a neurodegeneration disease and was exhibiting “hallmarks of Parkinson’s.”

“His motor symptoms are degenerating. He has Parkinsonisms. That is a fact. He has degeneration of the brain. Show me the MRI. Show me he doesn’t. Put your money where your mouth is. He definitely has it,” the specialist argued.

On Bennet’s unwillingness to call for Biden to step aside, Collins wondered if he was “resigned to the fact” that the continued campaign could spell Republican control of the upper chamber until “the end of the decade.”

“That would be an American tragedy,” tried the senator without advancing a path forward outside of fearmongering over what a potential second term for Trump would look like.
