It’s getting close to the time when people will start declaring their candidacy for president in 2024, so get ready to start hearing their names.
Because everyone is fed up with Dementia Joe, I believe that we will see both Democrats and Republicans challenging Joe Biden for the White House.
The Democratic Party really ought to feel ashamed about putting this man through all of this. He is not fit, either mentally or physically, to be in charge of a nation.
This week, we got a hint about someone who might actually run for president in the next election, someone who served and served well under President Trump. Nikki Haley, a former ambassador to the United Nations, is that person.
“If this president signs any sort of [Iran nuclear] deal, I’ll make you a promise,” she said. “The next president will shred it on her first day in office.”
Her? Is that a hint?
“Just saying, sometimes it takes a woman,” as she was cheered over her condemnation of Biden’s desire to return to the 2015 Iran nuclear deal. “Anything Joe Biden signs will all but guarantee that Iran gets the bomb.”
She has also said that she would not run if President Trump ran again. In my opinion, that suggests that she would highly consider running though.
But Tucker Carlson may have already squashed any hopes that Haley has at doing well in the race.
“We spoke about some of the politicians who should not be running the country. We were pretty specific about it,” Tucker reiterated on his Monday night show, a clip of which was shared on Twitter.
“I’ll never forget it as long as I live,” Tucker told the audience in Iowa, before quoting Haley’s statements after George Floyd’s death and the subsequent riots that overtook many American cities in 2020. “And then she said, ‘in order for healing to occur, what happens next must be personal and painful for everyone.’”
Tucker responded, “Really, why’s that?”
He argued that Haley had used the death of George Floyd to make a statement that would please The New York Times because she cares about what the publication and its readers think. “That’s just true. It doesn’t mean she’s a bad person, I don’t think she’s a bad person. I’ve always liked Nikki Haley,” Tucker continued. “If she was right here, I would tell her to her face: I like you.”
“[I] don’t want you in charge of anything,” he continued, which was met by laughter and applause from the audience. “Because the second things get intense, the second the other side really unleashes and starts yelling so loudly that you can’t think clearly, I want a leader who can still think clearly.”
Personally, I don’t think that she’ll do very well if she does indeed run. While I think we all appreciated her while she was working in the Trump administration, I don’t think that he name carries enough weight. If she has to run against someone like Ron DeSantis or even Mike Pence, I think that she would end up at the bottom of the barrel.
One other thing that I think would prevent her from succeeding is that I do believe that there are still many Republicans who just don’t want a woman leading the country, even if she’s a Republican. I personally don’t care, but I do know that many do care about that.
