Donald Trump, the former president of the United States, is not new to controversial remarks. After all, they are his specialty. In a recent Hugh Hewitt interview, he said something that has raised some eyebrows. He claimed that Kamala Harris could be a more effective President than Joe Biden. From a certain perspective, he might be right.
Former President Trump said on Friday, “Vice President Harris would be a better leader of the White House than Biden.”
Hugh Hewitt, conservative radio host, asked Trump if a vote for Biden was equal to a Harris vote. Trump replied, “I think it is.” He added that he wasn’t sure Biden could even make it “to the starting line.”
“It appears that he is locked into her for many reasons. He must choose her. I understand. The former president made the statement on “The Hugh Hewitt Show”: “It would seem that the Democrats will have to run her if he does not run.” I’m not certain that this is correct, but it’s what the professionals are saying.
“I think she’d be better than him, I actually think that,” he added in the interview, highlighted by Mediaite.
That’s a very novel approach.
Kamala Harris, as we all know, is the least capable politician in the country right now. I said recently that Kamala Harris has the charm of Veruca, and that she would lose in a fight of wits to a rhododendron. I still stand by this statement. Donald Trump might be onto something, at least in a certain perspective: His.
Kamala Harris didn’t get her political career started because of her intelligence, grace, charisma, or wide appeal. Donald Trump, however, is already looking forward to November 2024 and deciding who he will face first at the hustings. Ask yourself: Is there a Democrat politician who is less intelligent, less likable, and less articulate than Joe Biden? Kamala Harris is the person I would choose if we were to admit that there was one.
It would be very interesting to see Kamala Harris debate Donald Trump on a stage. If it was available as pay-per-view, I’d probably shell out some money. The same would be said for any GOP candidate who faced Harris. Any such matchup would result in the worst defeat since Custer’s men at Little Bighorn yelled out, “Come, boys! We have them right where we want!”
Trump has been watching the GOP primaries polls, and it appears that he is already planning to remodel the Oval Office. Although it’s too early for this, a politician’s ability to project confidence in a campaign isn’t necessarily a bad thing. He has already suggested a Vice President and a few key Cabinet appointments.
The odds are in his favor if he faces Kamala in the general elections. We have to believe that Democrats are making plans to deal with the (likely but not impossible) scenario that Joe the Plumber will be persuaded to withdraw. They must know that a Harris run would be disastrous. Trump’s comments here should confirm this.
