President Biden visited California Monday to rally support for California Governor Gavin Newsom, who is facing a recall election. Should Californians vote to recall him, the result will be Republican candidate Larry Elder in the governor’s seat. Biden and his Vice President Harris appeared at Newsom’s rally to speak to Californians.

“Well, this year, this year, the leading Republican running for governor is the closest thing to a Trump clone that I have ever seen in your state,” Biden told the crowd. “No, I really mean it. And he’s leading the other team. He’s a clone of Donald Trump.”

Therefore, Biden went on, Californians should not put in him charge. “Can you imagine him being governor of this state? You can’t let that happen. There is too much at stake,” Biden said. “And here’s why it’s so important for you all to vote no on the recall. First, voting no will be protecting California from Trump Republicans trying to block us from beating this pandemic. COVID-19, Gavin Newsom has had the courage to lead, stand up for science, for the very thing he’s been one of the leading governors in the nation, protecting people and vaccinating people in his state. Meanwhile, meanwhile, we see something else in parts of America.”

However, Biden seemed to also have ulterior motives. He told the California crowd the recall election results are “going to reverberate around the nation.” Lately, Biden has polled poorly nationwide, leaving the door open for a Republican to take his spot. Even when he arrived in California, many booed him. College stadiums around the nation have begun chanting “f*** Joe Biden.” So Biden likely meant that one Democrat losing could lead to more in the future.

With polls consistently showing a poor approval rating for President Joe Biden at below 40 percent, and a recent poll put Kamala Harris’ electability at only 28 percent, Democrats are in full panic mode.

Behind-the-scenes discussion of how Democrats could arrive at a third option for the next election is underway. Operatives are preparing for the possibility of a contested presidential primary in which other would-be nominees take on Ms. Harris, but that could be damaging for the party” reports the Telegraph.

Therefore, Democrats are allegedly whispering about a potential “nuclear option” that would call for current Vice President Harris to be nominated to the Supreme Court. The Telegraph writes that “while the scenario is highly improbable, and perhaps a reflection of a Washington rumor mill in overdrive, the fact it has come up at all shows the depths of the predicament the Biden administration currently finds itself in, amid rising inflation, a stalled domestic agenda, and foreign policy disasters.”

The theory in question would call for President Biden to nominate Harris to the Supreme Court in the event a seat opens in the next three years during his administration. Biden could then use “Section 2 of the 25thAmendment to nominate a more popular vice president”, adds the Telegraph.

Under Section 1 of the 25th Amendment, that new vice president could assume the presidency if Biden were to step down while president. They would then become the Democratic nominee in the 2024 presidential election. That same individual could also be the presumptive Democratic nominee in 2024 if Biden chooses not to run for re-election.

One piece of information that is wetting Democrats’ whistle is that current Supreme Court Justice Breyer has said he does not “want to stay on the Supreme Court until I die.”

The Telegraph notes that “the discussion over potential successors to Mr. Biden is highly unusual less than a year into an administration.”
