Musician Stevie Wonder has said he expects that former Vice President Joe Biden, whom he supports, will be the person to make reparations for slavery happen if he wins the presidential election, according to The Washington Times. Wonder was speaking in Detroit, Michigan at a drive-in rally for Biden on Saturday.

“I’ll tell you what you could do better than [a Juneteenth holiday],” the legendary musician said. “I know Joe Biden will do it. Give us reparations.”

A wave of honks and cheers then rang from the attendees in their vehicles.

“For the work we’ve all done over the past 400 years — unpaid,” he then added.

“We must vote justice in and injustice out,” he also said at the event.

Referencing Biden’s running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Wonder told the crowd: “Vote like you know that Biden and Harris are the only choice for a chance to bring this country back together.”

“Put the future in your hands, not in the hands of fate,” he continued.

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.”
