Richard Grenell, who recently left his cabinet post as the acting Director of National Intelligence, will now be working for the Republican National Committee as a senior adviser to focus on LGBT voter outreach, according to a Fox News exclusive.

“As America’s first openly-gay cabinet member, I can confidently say that President Trump has done more for gay and lesbian Americans than any other president, and it is not even close,” Grenell told Fox News.

Just before the announcement, Grenell was featured in a video released Thursday promoting President Trumps as the “most pro-gay President in American history.” In the video, Grenell slams the record of 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, who “as a United States Senator… said gay people couldn’t receive security clearances because we would be a security risk.”

“Joe must have been terrified when Donald Trump appointed me as acting Director of National Intelligence,” Grenell said in the Log Cabin Republicans’ video. “The fact that I’m gay didn’t even phase Donald Trump. Joe Biden certainly didn’t congratulate the appointment or even acknowledge it, but his silence was defeaning.”

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.”
