“Trump has definitely set back the democratic norm here in the United States,” said Ronald Klain, Joe Biden’s newly appointed Chief of Staff said on ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday.

“[Trump] has been doing that for four years, and that’s ramped up since the election,” continued Klain.

Klain continued to bash Trump, saying that “he could not really run on his record, and the voters rejected his leadership, and since then Donald Trump has been rejecting democracy.”

“We know we have to reach out to republicans, we know that we have to bring this country together,” continued Klain. “In fact that the entire essence of Joe Biden’s campaign for the Presidency. Trying to heal this nation, repair its soul, restore its backbone, united the country. And uniting this country is what [Biden] is doing.”

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.”
