Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) confirmed the fears of many conservatives on Monday during an interview for The Daily Show. She admitted Biden is in fact “moveable” and progressives like Jayapal, who is the co-chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, will move him to the left and further from the ideals of the nation’s founders even before a potential-President Biden took office.

Citing actions of the Biden-Sanders Unity Task Force, the representative said she and fellow progressives were able to “significantly push Joe Biden to do things that he hadn’t signed onto before.”

“He is movable, he is listening, and he does understand that we need turnout from young people, from folks of color, and I’m going to do everything I can to help get him elected,” she said on the talk show. “And then, I’m going to be right out front making sure that we continue to push for the policies that we need as a country.”

With conservative commentators and publications suggesting Biden is a puppet for his eventual Vice Presidential choice and the far-left actors he surrounds himself with, these comments can be seen as proof that this is in fact the plan. President Trump said last month that Biden is a “puppet of the militant left.”

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.”
