During a Monday fundraiser in front of wealthy donors, Biden cited a quote that has since made people question his judgment.
The presumptive Democrat nominee appeared at a digital fundraiser with Obama adviser Valarie Jarrett. When asked a question about women’s economic issues and relief, he quoted the Chinese dictator Mao Zedong’s famed saying, according to Fox News.
“We’ve got to get real economic relief into women’s hands now,” Biden reportedly said according to Fox. “Women hold up half the sky.”
Mao Zedong proclaimed “women hold up half the sky” at the beginning of his reign to encourage women to work outside the home and advance the nation by working in fields and industry.
Zedong led the communist revolution in China and served as the leader of the Chinese Communist Party from 1935 and chairman of the People’s Republic of China from 1949 to 1959.
“An estimated 65 million Chinese died as a result of Mao’s repeated, merciless attempts to create a new ‘socialist’ China,” according to the Heritage Foundation.
With China becoming a center focus in the campaign, it may not be strategic to quote former murderous dictators from the country.

Biden’s Poor Polling and Harris’ Low Electability Rating Could Have Democrats Considering ‘Nuclear Option’
Behind-the-scenes discussion of how Democrats could arrive at a third option for the next election is underway
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.”
