In the wake of the special counsel’s report, former Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy reaffirmed his prediction that Democrats will replace President Biden with Michelle Obama on their ticket.
The cognitive abilities of Biden were brought to the forefront by the shocking findings of Special Counsel Robert Hur, as The New York Post reported.
The report stated that the special counsel would not press charges against him in part because a jury would find him to be a “sympathetic, well-meaning elderly man with a poor memory,” notwithstanding the fact that Biden “willfully” obtained the classified documents while serving as vice president and senator.
Fox News Digital was informed by Ramaswamy that the special counsel’s report provides Democrats with a “convenient path” to nominate the beloved former first lady.
This is a sentiment the former candidate was vocal about during the campaign when he frequently said that he did not believe the 81-year-old president would ultimately be the Democratic nominee.
The Former Candidate’s Predictions
“The main obstacle stopping the Democratic Party is they have a Kamala Harris problem, which is to say that if they do sideline Biden, the natural person normally that would be the nominee, could be the vice president of that same sitting president. But that vice president is unable, I think, to effectively carry forward that job,” Ramaswamy said.
“She didn’t make it to the Iowa caucus in the year that she ran, right, even and within her own party, let alone an issue with broader popularity in the country.”
Ramaswamy went on to say that the social issues at play could work for the former first lady: “If race and gender are your basis for selecting someone for a job, and the identity of your party is tied to that temple of identity politics, then they will risk looking hypocritical if they sideline her after they sideline Biden.
“And I do think Michelle Obama offers them a convenient path out of that problem, somebody who checks the boxes that they need to have checked per their own ideology, while also selecting an alternative to Biden that they may view as more palatable in a general election …
In his prediction, the Republican said that, “It’s looking increasingly like it’s not going to be Biden as the nominee. And I think that it should not be shocking to see someone like Michelle Obama take the role of the nomination.”
On the Special Counsel’s Decision
Ramaswamy defined Hur’s decision not to press charges against Biden as an indication of the latter’s “willingness” to relinquish his position at some point.
“I think that coincides within recent months [of] him saying things like, you know, other Democratic nominees could also be successful in the general,” Ramaswamy said.
“So I think that we’re seeing a general trend towards what I predicted . . . which is that they would move Biden out of the way. And I think this is one more step in that direction.”
Biden had a “hazy” recollection of his time in office and the 2015 death of his son Beau, according to Hur, who was appointed by Attorney General Merrick Garland to investigate Biden’s handling of classified documents.
