‘The Five’ crew tip hat to Biden’s ‘brilliant’ strategy: ‘No one’s going to go after Joe if you gotta deal with that’

“The Five” co-host Greg Gutfeld gave props to President Biden for choosing Vice President Kamala Harris as his running mate in 2020 because she is arguably much worse than he is, which takes a lot of effort it would seem.

The assessment of Harris was in response to GOP presidential contender Nikki Haley claiming that if Biden somehow gets reelected in 2024, Harris will almost certainly wind up being president.

“I think everybody is trying to cover up for [Biden] because they think he’s the only one that can beat Trump. That’s ridiculous. I am telling you, we’ve got to get past having all of these people that are older in D.C. We’ve done that long enough. We need term limits. We need mental competency tests for people over the age of 75. I don’t care if we do it for people over the age of 50, but these are people that need to be at the top of their game. They’re making decisions on our national security. They’re making decisions on our children’s economic future. We can’t continue down this path,” Haley declared.

“And let’s be very clear if they think it’s going to be President Biden, a vote for President Biden, it’s actually a vote for President Harris. We are running against Kamala Harris. Make no bones about it. The New York Times knows it. Every liberal knows it. They know that it’s Kamala Harris that’s going to end up being president of the United States if Joe Biden wins this election,” she charged.

Biden is being assailed on all sides over his age, physical condition, and his mental competency going into the 2024 election. Gutfeld and fellow co-host Jesse Watters both addressed the issue.

“I spoke to a political consultant and he said the importance of framing the issue is the number one thing in politics,” Watters commented. “What you want to do is you want to frame an issue that makes your opponent operate in a space that hurts them. So, when a Republican says, ‘We’re actually running against Kamala Harris,’ what does that make Democrats say? That makes Democrats have to talk about Joe Biden’s age, Joe Biden’s physical, and Joe Biden’s mental health. It puts them in an even more awkward position because then they also have to insist and acknowledge that Kamala Harris is next in line.”

Watters pointed out that Republican candidates should “hammer” the fact home that Harris would be the heir-apparent if Biden cannot finish out his term once reelected.

Gutfeld called Biden’s decision to choose Harris as his running mate “brilliant.”

“I’m going to disagree with Jesse,” he remarked. “I think that the decision to choose Kamala as VP was brilliant for Joe ’cause she’s so much worse. You don’t pick a better choice.”

“She was an insurance policy,” co-host Jeanine Pirro interjected.

“Yeah, no one’s going to go after Joe if you gotta deal with that,” Gutfeld humorously noted.
